Location, location, location!

The Old Waverley enjoys prime position on Princes Street, where the hotel faces onto Princes Gardens and the Castle aloft.

Described as one of Edinburgh's 'oldest and best loved hotels,' I can certainly see the charm and appeal of this establishment.

Sticking to its guns, it doesn't feel the need to go 'all boutique hotel' on us, instead you'll find a traditional interior perhaps suited to an older clientele. The rooms facing the castle have high ceilings and stunning views and I definitely recommend booking into one of those. You can choose a single, a double or have adjoining rooms which are particularly suited to families.

There's 24-Hour room service, same day laundry and valet service, Broadband Internet Service, Wi-Fi access, Flatscreen LCD TV's and en-suite facilities.

Originally built as a Temperance Hotel by Robert Cranston and known as the Waverley Hotel, Cranston went on to build the New Waverley Hotel at Waterloo Place, and from then on the original hotel became known as The Old Waverley.

Robert Cranston couldn't have picked a better spot. If you literally want to step out of your hotel entrance and be right 'in the thick of it,' then this is the place for you.
