Ballantrae Albany Hotel
Grubby Hotel needs a good clean
Lovely Hotel but Grubby. Thick dust on towel rails. When I complained to reception, nothing was done, and was moved to another room with exactly the same issue. Extractor fans in bathrooms not working. And then to top it all, shower in the replacement room didn't provide any hot water. When I then complained to the management after I left, no attempt to address their issues. Few hotels are perfect, but it's how a hotel deals with your concerns, and this one has fallen short of acceptable standards.

Georgian House Hotel.
Small comfortable hotel. Well located near Scottish National Portrait Gallery.10 min walk from Waverley station. Charming reception staff. Large comfortable quiet rooms. Breakfast basic continental selection, no hot cooked food. Alex on reception was very helpful. I would certainly stay here again.

Perfect location
we were upgraded free to a large family room which is the biggest room I've ever seen. The room itself was clean but a little dated. It was also a bit loud at times but it was perfect for location very close to the centre of the city (10 min walk) the staff are lovely and very helpful we were missing a bath plug and they sorted it in no time at all would reccommed this hotel.

Great, decent central venue, reasonably priced.
The hotel was very central and easy to find, and it was only about 5 minutes to the tram stop to get back to the airport. Despite the late night and lastminute booking, I felt perfectly safe wandering around the area to get to the hotel. Staff on check-in and check-out were wonderfully warm, friendly and helpful. They opened up the bar area for me so I could get work done; provided tea on demand; and helped me lug my case around. The hotel is very clean, with high ceilings and tall windows in all of the rooms (spotless blinds!) and the bed was super comfortable. My room was spacious and the decor had a period vintage style to it. The area was relatively quiet, considering the location. My only gripe was another guest in the room above me who thought it appropriate to stomp around her room for an hour or so after midnight. However, staff were happy to have a word to get them to quieten down, and this is something that is outside of the hotel's control anyhow. I'd definitely recommend this as a place to stay and look forward to coming back.
