      The amazing location of the hotel and the friendliness of the hotel staff

      The hotel was built and provided with the topshelve furniture and equipments but unfortunately for someone who cares about the very little details I found that the proper maintenance for a such luxoriose hotel is quite bellow the expectation.

      Great hotel, huge room, supportive staff.

      There was a strange noise in the room, like a water bolier in a distant place.

      The bed ....it's really comfy we had stayed before and the reason we stayed on this trip to edinburgh rather than choosing Hotel Du Vin as last year (annual vacation to scotland) as it's closer to shopping and all the Historical stuff

      Maybe I was just lucky the first time round but this time it was all a little "frayed around the edges" ....still solid amenities like ghd straightners in the rooms, amazingly comfy beds, gas fire... Ok room service. But two fire alarms in one night and no reference or apology on behalf of probably the usual guest who set it off, looked at and then ignored by bartenders on entry for breakfast "as obviously not their job to seat the guest" freezing cold restaurant (some other guests had their coats on) a waiter who forgot the toast, butter, coffee..... Maybe he was woken by the fire alarm also.... Not sure would stay again based on this experience....shame. But maybe we were just unlucky.

      The staff were absolutely top class! I took ill on my journey to Edinburgh and they were outstandingly helpful during my stay. The room was spacious and very comfortable

      In the evening the bar was very busy and noisy and there didnt seem to be a way into the hotel except through the bar (the door was locked). But saying that you couldnt hear a peep once in the room. Also the floor in the bathroom was incredibly slippy which proved a problem since the shower was a wet room

      Very friendly & helpful staff, large shower, comfortable bed, and marvellous grill breakfast. Lovely surroudings and great site for the centre of Edinburgh

      Beautiful rooms, every convenience had been thought of.... Even down to ghd straighteners!

      The rooms are beautiful, we stayed in a suite which was amazing.

      The meal in the restaurant was barely edible. The staff are rude and not helpful, particularly the restaurant hostess who had a terrible attitiude and acted as if she was doing you a favour letting you into the restaurant!!

      Stunning luxurious immaculate hotels and ensuite, great locate, lovely venue for drinking or dining-can't wait to go back

      Everything at Tigerlily was fantastic - the bar, the VIP access to the nightclub, the rooms, the all day Sunday breakfast ...

    • Group of friends

      The room, the decoration and level of comfort were excellent at the hotel and the staff were generally welcoming and helpful.

      There were a few things that maybe didn't shed the best light on the hotel. When we first arrived we couldn't get into our room as the keycard wouldn't work. It took us approximately 15 minutes to get into our room due to a fault with the card (we got a an old style key in the end). Also the bar staff seemed like they couldn't be bothered serving us when we went down for an afternoon drink. Finally, we had booked two rooms, one for myself and my partner and one for my brother and his friend. We had a Junior suite and my brother a twin. However, after talking about the rooms on the way home it would appear he had the suite and I got the twin. The bed layout and the swankiness of the rooms didn't make it clear which was which.

      Food and cocktails and wine in restaurant were amazing.

      Lovely room , attentive staff, attention to detail. Great service in bar.

      7.0

      Designed to within an inch of its life. I thought it was lovely, but it might not suit you if you aren't a fan of pink carpets or silver wallpaper. Excellent food for the price, large room and a shower bigger than some people's spare rooms. An inviting atmosphere, as was evident from the number of locals using the bar and restaurant (very noisy on Saturday night but the noise didn't penetrate to our room). No extra charge for room service breakfast. Location could not be better.

      Staff appeared not to be well trained and not fully engaged with their jobs. They made a complicated mess of both our check in and check out and of the bill for our dinner on the second night. Wrong room allocated, bed not made up as a twin desptie the request being clear, wrong charge. Items on bill which we hand't had etc etc. No apologies were offered for any of the errors and the staff seemed bewildered when things went wrong. We thought at first that we were simply unlucky (mistakes happen in the best ordered establsihment) but it became a theme throughout our stay, and let down an otherwise excellent hotel. .
