A little away from the centre but worth it

Pros: Everything
Cons: Possibly service in the bar but a minor point only. The air conditioning in our room (21) was noisy but necessary as the room was hot
Location: A little way out of the centre but plenty of good shops and restaurants nearby. Quite a pleasant walk down to Princes Street especially in the sunshin
Lovely hotel on a quiet, pleasant street; friendly and helpful staff; tidy, well decorated and clean public rooms; bedroom good size, well appointed and well maintained. Excellent breakfast. The only downside would be slow service in the bar area.

Fantastic Hotel, Great Location & Lovely Staff

Pros: The decor, spacious rooms, very clean and a lively bar area.
Cons: Nothing!
Location: Located in the new town on a lovely street with shops such as Whistles, The White Company and plenty of bars/restaurants!
Had a great first time in Edinburgh and very glad we chose Tigerlily for our stay. The location was spot on, George Street is a lovely area. Staff were all so nice and helpful. Room as gorgeous and bathroom size impressive.

Very pleasant stay, friendly staff. Room was spacious and beds comfortable. Didn’t stay on weekend, so it was very quiet too. Would stay again!
