    These greedy people wouldn't postpone our reservation even though we were not allowed to fly (certainly not without 14 days of quarantine) and we are in our 60's. All our other reservations gave us a credit for next year. NOT these sociopaths.

    Highly recommend

    We had a fantastic stay in the Old Waverley hotel - very friendly staff and the food tasted amazing which was also very good value for money. A great central location for tourists and would highly recommend to others. We will be looking to stay here again when we visit Edinburgh in the future!

    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Didn't like all the stairs, with heavy bags, to get to reception. Girl on reception , when we arrived, was unhelpful.Rest of the staff were good. Breakfast was poor. We were on the 4th floor. Very morning we passed piles of dirty linen on every floor. In the room we could not adjust the water from the shower head and the toilet seat would not stay up. The location was good. Would not stay there again
