Hotel clean and comfortable but in need of update.
This hotel is right in the heart of everything but is in desperate need of an update, especially in the communal areas. The room was very spacious with great amenities and very clean, however the room overlooked an office building to the side so a little unsettling opening the curtains in the morning to find office staff staring at us. Check in was ok, however hard to understand guy checking us in and wanted to charge us an extra £12 each for breakfast. Declined that kind offer and went to Weatherspoons down the road for a great breakfast at half the price!

Old Waverley Hotel
Hotel was in great location but excessively overpriced for our 3 day stay, rooms are tired and small. I rang hotel before arrival & was assured would not have one of the smaller twin rooms so was very disappointed upon arrival to see this was not possible. Expected more for £250 for Saturday night. Breakfast was indifferent. Wouldn't stay again.

Edinburgh weekend
Really well placed on Princes Street, a little old fashioned in decor

Old Waverley Hotel
The room was comfortable, if you want a view you have to pay extra. When we booked in the receptionist told us that the room was not ready as we had arived to early but asked if wanted to store our luggage. She asked us if were here for any special reason, we told her that it was my wife's birthday. When we got to our room, there was a birthday card on the bed. We ate in the restaurant on the first night the food was very good,
