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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Having stayed at various hotels around Edinburgh, I thought it was time I triedTigerlily. From the moment we arrived the team were just fantastic. Not only did I receive a free upgrade but also a complimentary drink as it was my birthday. The team couldn’t have been better, with a special mention to Mya for looking after me. The room was spacious and the bed was so comfortable, something you don’t often get in hotels! Fantastic location and I will definitely be back. Thanks everyone for making the experience so eventful and memorable.

Loved the interiors- great vibes for 40th or 50th celebrations but quite noisy to stay the night - take ear plugs! Beautiful rooms with breakfast service and gorgeous towelling gowns and toiletries. Central and more than comfortable! Treat yourself and see sister sites.

Beautiful hotel with the nicest staff, we stsyed here as the final day of our honeymoon. We stayed on 2nd floor in a Beautiful room. We had booked the valentines set menu and it did not fail us we loved the food and drinks. We were in a table tucked away in a darker area but didn't mind too much it was very romantic. The service was slow but that could be forgiven as it was extremely busy and they made up for this with an additional drink. After the meal we went to the bar area and had more cocktails and then went to our room. The fire alarm went off at midnight 😒 noone came to check and we made our way to the fire check point to find out it was the smoke machine and it had happened previously. A short while later we went back in and back to bed. The shower is amazing and the fact they use refill bottles for shampoo etc made me happy. The breakfast was amazing and I would like to praise all the kitchen staff as all the meals were spot on. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will be back.

Hi Snow-quee. Firstly thank you for taking the time to leave a review, I love that we were part of your honeymoon celebration. I'm delighted to know you enjoyed your valentines dinner with us, as you could see we were extremely busy but we were working very hard to make sure all food and drink we out as quickly as possible. It is disappointed to hear your experience involving the fire alarm, we have spoken to the night manager to ensure all guests are aware of the false alarm should the same issue occur again. IT does however seem like your overall experience was a positive one which is fantastic to hear. All negative aspects of your experience have been noted and will be actioned by our managers. I'm looking forward to seeing you again and hope we can build on your positive experience. Thanks, Tigerlily reception

We came for a family dinner and simply loved it, The food at Tigerlilly is absolutely top notch, Well cooked, well presented and fair pricing. It's fine dining, without advertising itse;f as fine dining (and with decent portions!) The staff couldn't do too much for us, they made sure we were ok and had all we need, we definitely felt cared for. Looking for somewhere to have dinner in Edinburgh, this place is highly recommended. We stayed here back in December too, and the rooms were clean, confortable and well appointed.

First visit, won’t be the last! Visited with my teenage daughter as a post-exam treat. We stayed in a beautiful suite on the third floor, just perfect. Service excellent, personable staff who clearly enjoy what they do - nothing too much trouble. Great, central location for shopping. Looking forward to out return.

Was really looking forward to this booking for the Gin Hendricks bar then dinner with family for my mum's birthday. Firstly told no sash etc as not allowed and arrived and there was a hen party in with sashes on and a veil as well as other birthday sashes so absolutely ragin to beginning with. Booking in Hendrick from 615 to 7 but at around 640 they came in and started to decorate for an event which left is feeling very uncomfortable and unwelcome. I was told when booking we had to leave for an event at 7 but no mention of this being organised while present. Awaiting surprise guests for my mum's birthday restaurant staff room is to the table claiming they knew nothing about this. Bit of a shame. Really loud party somewhere in the place with a woman's laugh for 40 minutes during dinner which was really irritating even my 10 year old commented on this. Poor service difficult to get anyone for drinks round and the bill. I was expecting better given the reputation and review. Only positive was the bouncer Alan who went above and beyond and I mean this for helping out elderly relative get downstairs and into a taxi what a gentleman with such wonderful patience and communication skills made our night. As for the rest of it a bit of a met down. I had advise of this being special for my mum's birthday no mention to her of a happy birthday not even a wee note on the table or a prosecco or anything to make it special was really let down and spent over £300. Looks beautiful for photos shame about the service doesn't seem to match .

This is our first stay at Tigerlily and what a lovely stay we had. Everything is just class - beautiful decor throughout hotel, huge comfortable bed, large bathroom with big walk in shower. Breakfasts we could not fault, everything was tasty and cooked to perfection. We didn't have dinner here but will if we return. Staff were up there with the best. They were all very attentive, professional and friendly. Would love to visit again.

Visited the restaurant with the family. This is the second time we have gone there and it was surprisingly much quieter than last year. Busy enough but not quite as many customers. Service was OK but again, not up to the last visit. Wrong drinks brought, very slow (despite not being as busy) but the food was up to the same standard. We may have just hit it on a bad day but given the fantastic decor, general vibe, it was just a little disappointment but maybe we were expecting too much. Certainly would go back.

Everything apart from one thing was amazing the hotel is gorgeous rooms are amazing restaurants fantastic staff very friendly and helpful well recommended but we booked through 5pm and we had a £20 off food but when I booked I asked if this would affect the great deal they were doing 50%off there main meal and the girl said no so we booked dinner and had a lovely meal but on check out they said you couldn’t do the both so that put a bit of a damper on the night as we wouldn’t have went there for dinner and overcharged £32 but as I said before just watch as I will the next time I go back

Hi there, I hope you are well and thank you very much for your feedback! I apologise for the communication issue - as a general rule we do not join two offers together - but I understand it was our mistake during communication with you - for which we are sorry! We take your feedback seriously and I will discuss this matter with the team, to ensure it doesn't happen in the future. I am glad though, that you enjoyed other aspects of your dining experience with us and I do hope to welcome you to our venue again! Best Regards, Tigerlily Management

Really really disapppointed with our stay over the New Year which we extended by one night just to stay here. We were woken twice by false fire alarms and then kept awake until after 3am by loud music! Had been looking forward to staying here but we only got 3 hours sleep as we had to be up at 7am for flight home. Complained to reception and were told to email as manager was off sick but 3 weeks later havent had any kind of response, very poor for a hotel of this standard. Wont be staying again which is such a shame!

Hi Janice, Thank you very much for your feedback and I apologise for all the issues with your stay! I apologise for the delay with response to your query - this might have been caused by some personnel/structural changes. I can only apologise for that, as it is definitely not the Tigerlily way of dealing with complaints from our guests. If you would like to discuss it further, please get in touch with me personally and I will be happy to resolve that matter - you can email at michalj@tigerlilyedinburgh.co.uk. I do hope, we can turn your experience around and welcome you to our venue again! Best Regards, Tigerlily Management
