Young couple staying for the weekend. Very friendly staff, lovely room (king delux), great location.
Bar was a touch expensive but that is a given.
The view The staff
Location Staff were very helpful and pleasant Size of room Room was very quiet, never heard a noise from anyone else
Sometimes the shower had no hot water The pole the shower head was attached to was loose and a lot of limescale and grime around the base of the shower The bathroom was cold and drafty There was a thick layer of dust on chandelier Price of parking was very steep
The hotel is beautiful inside with a real sense of grandeur. The staff are welcoming, professional and obliging. The highlight of our stay was a meal at the Pompadour, which was truly excellent.
The deluxe room was smaller than expected, but not a major criticism.
The hotel was beautiful. The service was fantastic. The location was perfect. The room was very well equipped with iron, ironing board, safe, lovely house coats and slippers. We made use of the well stocked mini bar. We were upgraded to a castle view room which was lovely.
Car parking could be an issue, we arrived early and managed to get a space. The room could have done with a dust, although this did not take away from out enjoyment.
There is too much to say in one review but what really stuck me was the level opf service across the hotel, nothing was too much trouble, we will be back!
location atyle of the hotel
the comfort of the hotel the central location in Edinburgh the kindness of the staff the breakfast
the closing time of the bar (00.00)
Clean rooms and plenty of beverages.
Ordered 6 drinks as a night cap - asked for 3 cheese platters to share but was told the kitchen couldn't do them - closed..... waitress returned with 2 bowls of mixed nuts and olives, enough for a small child to eat..... assumed complimentary, not so, charged £16 per dish - worked out at about £1 per peanut !!! Everything else as expected.Yes would stay again just wouldn't frequent the bar. Breakfast 'across the road' excellent !
The staff were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was beautiful and exceptionally clean. The bed was so comfy it was tempting to stay in it all day though the location of the hotel makes it irresistible to explore the city!
The restaurants The Doormen who joked Easy access to Airlink Bus to airport
Reception is very unimpressive, it seems like a 3 star hotel, small , old, Corridors smell of cabbage, the rooms are not well ventilated Tired decor On a very busy junction
Fabulous location, excellent service, beautiful hotel. Our triple room was huge and beautifully appointed with luxury toiletries, robes & slippers. The individually cooked breakfasts were absolutely sensational. A flawless weekend.
On one of the two (weekend) nights, there was some late night street noise but this is to be expected from a city centre location and did not detract from the stay.
Beautiful hotel, good location with friendly helpful staff, would most cert. recommend and book this hotel again.
water pressure from the shower was not powerful enough!, not sure whether this was due to being on the 5th floor or not?!
Dirty Bar Poor Service Matteress harder than the floor Dirty towel rail in bathroom
Everything will definitely be back
Greatest facilities in Edinburgh!
It's not a matter of didn't like...the only comment is that the height of the toilets are quite high off the ground.
very professional staff; excellent bar(+bartender); great sports facilities - all comfort
WiFi is available but at rather low speed - fast WiFi only for purchase. For business hotel: recommendation to upgrade WiFi connection without any additional charge
Staff Decor Location
The room price was higher than usual?
Dated, I stay in hotel's six to eight weeks every year and had never stayed in Waldorf hotel. From conversations with people I was expecting a little more.
Also near great restaurants in neighborhood.
I booked this hotel from booking.com, and received the booking comfiration. But when I checked in, the staff told me there was no my reserve information. I and my family waited in the lobby for an hour!!!!And finally, the staff said because I haven't prepaid, my name and my booking number was not in their check in system. This is rediciculous and unreasonable. I thought when I received the booking comfirmation means I booked, and no any letter shows if not prepaid, customer would take the risk of no room can check in.
The room was a lot smaller than I was lead to believe. The room was cold. And our towels did not get changed in our whole.stay even though we left them on the floor to be changed
Staff were excellent and very helpfull the hotel location is fantastic close to old town and shopping delux bedroom with castle views and the bed was one of the best we have ever slept in will be our first choice if visiting again
a little traffic noise from the street due to old windows
Staff, Ambience, Roon and Furnishings, SPA, Public spaces especially the lounge.
Nothing only having to leave
THE VIEW OF THE CASTLE FROM THE ROOM
WATER IN THE SHOWER WAS NOT HOT ENOUGH AT ALL
