Beware the bathroom floors

Very helpful staff ; breakfast

Caveat emptor, of course, so when you pay not quite top-dollar via a fill-the-rooms website, you should not expect quite top-dollar. However, to be placed in a room where the grouting has come away from between the bathroom floor tiles to the extent where one can see the tile spacers is not really acceptable. That was a potential accident waiting to happen. The room itself (311) would not have been out of place in a well-appointed dungeon. If you are ever offered it, don't take it. Ask if someone could pull your toe-nails out instead. On the plus side, as soon as I went down to reception and pointed out the flawed floor, I was rehoused. It took a while to sort out, but it was done unquestioningly and ungrudgingly and with the help of a very attentive receptionist. Breakfast on the Saturday morning was excellent : £10 a head for as much as you could eat, basically. I gave up after about half a pig.

This is the second time we stayed in the George Hotel in Edinburgh and it was every bit as good as we remembered. The rooms are to a high standard, the staff were helpful, very polite and nothing was too much trouble for them. Look forward to our next visit

This hotel trades too much on its past reputation

1. The staff.

My son and I came to Edinburgh to find him a flat so we chose a central location. Parking is a NIGHTMARE and this was not properly explained to us. Consequently, we spent disproportionate time hunting for parking. The hotel staff are great. Friendly and attentive. Our room was a dreadful room badly needing updating. This should have been explained to us, prior to booking it. On Sunday morning we had to come down for breakfast twice. Our first visit was 9.30 am. There were massive queues waiting to be seated. We were told it would only take a few minutes to resolve. We returned at 10.00am to a BIGGER queue. We joined the queue at 10.20 and were seated at 10.45. Breakfast ends at 11.00am. The breakfast was incomplete ( no sausage, no bacon, greasy eggs etc). Again we had to wait. The quality of the food was poor. The sausage in particular was tasteless. I asked for freshly cooked eggs as the ones I had were cold. This is supposed to be a 4 star hotel. NOT impressed. I have conveyed these same thoughts to the hotel management. They have responded saying they know of these problems and are to resolve them in the future. In my opinion they should not be booking up the hotel if they cannot cope with the volume. The hotel has offered me a free upgrade and free breakfast. I will not be staying there again.
