A comfortable hotel for a short break

Good location for shopping and convenient for many places of interest. reasonably quiet in spite of boardering the main shopping area. staff very attentive to customers' needs. room nicely modernised with unusual touches of former period retained.

My daughter and i have stayed here before, it has a brilliant central location, ideal if travelling by train, which we did. the rooms are well decorated, large and clean. the breakfast was ok, but i had to ask if they had porridge, and there were no croissants left by 9.00a.m, which wasn't a disaster,just a little disappointing!

A weekend at the old waverley

Superbly situated nicely re-vamped old-style hotel right on prince's street. friendly staff and good service generally.

stairs up from street level to reception are a nuisance but hotel offers porterage on request.

lift to upper floors is small and slow, queues at peak times.

cheeky £2 charge for calling an 0800 number, also use of internet is expensive. if starbucks can give it away with a coffee, so can hotels.
