Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hotel's Favourite
Stayed here29th January for 3 nights along with brother snd sister in law for brothers b’day celebrations. Ideally situated to get to everything. Staff very friendly&helpful, room a good size , king size bed. Plenty of tea/coffee milk in reception to refill our tray as needed. We had a drink in t bar a couple of eve’s the staff were really nice. Outside in Rose Street is out of Premier Inn control but maybe speaking to local council about the area being swept-there was broken glass lots of cigarette butts around which isn't a good first impression for guests. Plus t fairy lights that are on the whole of Rose St ends short of the premier inn-a bit of a shame All in all a great stay .

This hotel is just off the main shopping street and minutes away from the main station, trams, buses and lots of tourist sites. It's not an impressive, decorative hotel, but it is really easy to stay in and makes a great base for visiting the centre of Edinburgh. It's ideal if you are going to Edinburgh for the city and won't be spending a lot of time enjoying the hotel facilities. We took a tram from the airport and didn't need to use transport again until we went back to the airport.

I always stay at this premier inn when I come to Edinburgh, mainly because it’s the closest to the train station and I know where this hotel is. Everything is located around this hotel, it’s so convenient and good value for money! Shall be booking again soon!

Good Premier Inn, clean and nice staff, very well position for enjoying a city break. Got a good price for two night stay, although it is fair to say Premier Inn has changed its pricing policy and the days of cheap rooms especially at weekends are gone. Only slight complaint is that while we were not down early for breakfast with 45-60 minutes to go it was not good that they had stopped putting fresh stuff out in the heated buffet and supposedly no sausages left. Reception, bar and restaurant staff all friendly and helpful would happily stay again.

This time at premiere inn Waverley Edinburgh our experience was as it should be no problems with rooms and staff friendly and accommodating .the hotel was spotless and warm . I stayed here in December and it was appalling cold and unfriendly but I found it way and this was because there was three staff to run the whole hotel due to illness of staff .

Stayed in room 101. Very very noisy, apparently no other rooms were available, so had to buy earplugs. These helped slightly. Asked for room to be serviced, arrived back at 8pm after a long days walking to find it hadn’t been, went to reception with our old towels. Once I finally found someone, she did say sorry, but them followed this up with do you want a black bin bag to Put your rubbish in.. no fresh fruit at breakfast on last day..there were some whole oranges available, but the fruit that was available in the bowl wasn’t fresh at all, the apples were brown and the orange was already falling apart this was at 7:30 so not long after it had opened.No berries at all. Black pudding tasted off, and the sausage was different to the other days. The guy who appeared in charge, was too busy doing nothing, waltzing about trying too avoid contact with quite a few people who were trying to attract his attention
