“Best hotel......ever!”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

I have never written a review on tripadvisor before but this time I had to. Stayed at Tigerlily for one night with the itison deal. Everything was perfect, we had a luxury double room which was gorgeous! Massive bed and beautifully decorated with an equally lovely bathroom with wet room. Had dinner in the restuarant, waiter was very polite and could not do enough to please, complimentary bread and olives was a nice touch. We both had different dishes which tasted in one word delicious!. As residents in the hotel you get free entry to Lulu, great music and once again really lovely staff. Breakfast in the morning did not dissapoint, plenty of choice and best eggs benedict I have ever had. Only complaint, we couldnt stay another night. Thank you Tigerlily for a wonderful time, we are already planning our next visit which will be very soon. Why this hotel is not 5 stars is a complete mystery.

Room Tip: Im sure all rooms in this hotel are as lovely as the next!

Ahh we are just back from a weekend stay at Tigerlilys and I have to say it was without a doubt the best hotel we ever stayed in. The room was amazing and the extra touches really made it worth the money. The staff were young, trendy, gracious and eager to please. The breakfast was beautiful and served up to 12pm every day and all day on a Sunday. Imagine that!! According to 1 member of staff Saturday night was the busiest shift he had ever experienced but we didn't even notice as service from the table waiters was efficient and prompt! The hotel manager was really friendly and took time to ask us how our trip was and what we thought of the hotel, we honestly felt like we were the only guests staying there!! It was our first time away together in a few years and we both had the best nights sleep ever.
If you want romance, great food, experienced and super friendly staff, delicious cocktails and an amazing central location to all Edinburgh has to offer then staying in Tigerlily is a must!! Cannot wait to go back and my husband and I agreed that we will definitely return same time next year.
I just don't have a clue as to why this hotel could be rated any lower than 5 stars, hope this helps if you are in two minds about booking this fab hotel :)

Room Tip: Choose a 2nd or 3rd floor room as you will be guaranteed a good nights sleep.

I recently stayed here on a work trip and had a fabulous time. The room itself was fantastic and catered for your every need - ipod, ghd's, robe and slippers to name a few of the extra luxuries which made it feel like home from home. The staff were great too, always friendly and wearing a smile with nothing being too much trouble. I would definitely stay here again due to the central location and would recommend it for business and well as a romantic break away.

Stayed for one night a treat after buying a deal on itison. Only one word to describe it - fantastic! Extremely helpful staff, gorgeous rooms, gorgeous food, great location. All the additional touches such as ghds, keeping our ice bucket topped up in the room, fantastic room service, etc, made it even more special. An absolute must if you are staying in Edinburgh.

I was lucky enough to stay at Tigerlily on a business trip and it was a truly lovely experience. The hotel decor is very of the moment and my room was beautiful. However it was the staff who really made the experience. Everyone was friendly, warm, welcoming and did a great job.

The only fault I could find is that some of the prices in the bar were a wee bit too high, but again the bar staff were great.

My friend and I stayed on a dinner, bed & breakfast package in a Junior Suite.
The room was very spacious with a comfi bed and amenities like an ipod, a dvd player, board games, comp water and fruit and a huge power shower as well as ghds.
We shared Afternoon Tea with bubbles and enjoyed a delicious three course dinner in the stylish restaurant. All staff were attentive and friendly and I would recommend the chocolate fondue to share for dessert. The cocktails are pricey but worth the money and you get free entry and a queue jump to Tigerlily's nightclub Lulus. The Night Manager even made us sandwiches when we returned to the hotel after our night out. We had breakfast in our room for no additional fee and rented a dvd to watch in bed in the morning also comp. All in all a perfect stay and we didn't even have to leave the hotel for 24 hrs as it was cold and rainy outside - Tigerlily have it all.

Room Tip: Junior Suite is the way to go
