The health spa; the service; the general cheap atmosphere of the hotel
Staff were very accomodating and friendly. The rooms were very spacious. The bedding was gorgeous. The good quality of everything from the food at breakfast to the furniture in our room.
The wait at breakfast with 2 youngish children who are hungry and grumpy.
Amazing location, right in the middle of everything. Beautiful rooms, comfy bed and well cleaned. Impeccable service from all of the staff.
We seemed to be hassled a lot on the morning we were due to depart, but otherwise a wonderful stay!
Excellent restaurant, beautiful rooms, on Princess Street and just below the Castle and the Royal Mile. The Pompadour restaurant has the best staff around and fantastic cuisine.
Dinner in the upstairs restaurant
Staff, just unfriendly and the breakfast was awful and not a treat to anyone
We were treated like royalty. The manager who checked us in could not have been nicer. She treated my five year old grandson like he was her most important guest & every time she saw us she made a point of making sure we were being well looked after. The doorman was charming and also could not have done more to be sure we were having a wonderful time. The room was lovely and comfortable, with a spectacular view of the fireworks at the castle each evening. The food and service in the restaurant was very good. The crib provided for our small toddler was perfect with very nice bedding like you would find at home. The extra touches, like scotch, fresh fruit, cakes and whiskey fudge were the crowning touch to an already delightful hotel. We would absolutely return to this gracious and comfortably elegant hotel.
The service in the restaurant at breakfast was a bit slow.
restaurant food concierge
small rooms high room rates poor service in bar, lounge and restaurant reception areas
The staff was excellent and the customer service outstanding. The location is perfect - close to everything.
staff politeness and helpfulness and kinowledge in dealing with our enquiries (Thomas) Lounge area was spacious and comfortable
breakfast was not included for the price no bath available A lack of staff availablility during busy periods rather dated and drab entrance could do with smartening up with easier access for disabled guests
Location is excellent
Reception personnel were not friendly and not helpful at all. I found the staff were very busy and they did not give the proper care to guests. I will not be back to this hotel.
Everything! The location, the service, the room, the beds, the amenities - everything!
Loved everything room upgrade super friendly staff bed quality all amazing
Very poor management leading to an inadequate number of staff to provide any level of service. It's such a shame that this hotel is being ruined by cutting costs leading to very poor service in all departments and areas. This is not value for money.
Staff were attentive and all our needs were cheerfully attended to
Location Staff friendliness
Room view onto brick wall and very untidy and rundown "courtyard" (for want of a better term).
Public areas Location
Bedroom was dark and setup was old Wifi slow Waiting for breakfast Bad coffee at breakfast 5*price for3* experience
Reception staff very helpful as was the doorman when parking the car. The room was beautifully clean. Especially enjoyed the Nespresso machine
Didn't like just having a shower facility.
cost per room steep due to being on during fringe and tatoo
didn't include breakfast in rate
Facilities and staff were excellent
For asthma sufferers there were a lot of dust in our room and for the money we paid I would expect our room to be in top shape. If I was paying for a lower grade hotel I wouldn't grumble too much. The spa is not as it seemed on the pics I saw online! It turns out those pics of the swimming pool are located at The Scotsman hotel not at the Waldorf. We discovered this when the jacuzzi was out of order where we offered to go to the Scotsman instead
Location, parking facilities, Peacock Alley Lounge
Housekeeping within room - previous guests rubbish left, an hour late with check in due to room not being ready
Edinburgh Castle. Shops pubs and restaurants.
We saw a Palestinian protest.
Would definitely stay again
The staff were wonderful and the food was excellent.The building is majestic. We had a deluxe first floor room at the back 157, no view but very very quiet, couldn't be better. This will be our Edinburgh hotel in the future.
Really comfortable room Which was well stocked! Beautiful views and great location
Breakfast was fine but not 41/2 star in my opinion. Not the best quality ingredients.
