Went for a hen-weekend, after a friend recommended it. I was not disappointed! Everything about this place was fantastic. Rooms are excellent, great size, well kitted out, and uber modern. Food was fantastic, and even on a Saturday night when we were late for our table - they never rushed us, and kindly found us a booth in the bar area after our meal, which you will never get unless you reserve one due to their popularity. The bar areas and lounge are just stunning! Fantastic array of cocktails and drinks menu - great offers on cocktails/wine on a Friday night worth remembering! The nightclub under the hotel (Lulu's) was great - and attracts a variety of ages, Friday's crowd seemed much younger than Saturday's. Breakfast was amazing, and would highly recommend breakfast in bed for an extra treat. We did the Girl's Weekend offer which was great. Lunch at Ricks was fantastic, the Chamomile Spa was lovely, and Caroline the make-up artist who takes care of the make-overs was so lovely, and very good! However the biggest selling point at this place was everyone who worked there. Superb customer service from Richard - a fabulous concierge, the girls on reception and in the restaurant and bar - they were all fantastic, and I just wish I knew all of their names to name them - they deserve it, and are a credit to the hotel. Will definitely be going again!!

Room Tip: On a weekend - try and stay on the top floor - less noisy!

Overnight stay was a lovely treat. Deal included bottle of fizz and a meal plus entry to LULU. The breakfast was one of the best ever. Great room with huge walk-in shower. Brilliant little touches including little jug with fresh milk in the fridge, candles in the bathroom. Can't wait to go back!!

Stayed at this hotel for one night using an 'itison' deal which cost £145. The deal included one nights stay in a double room, a sharing platter for two with a glass of wine each, a three course dinner meal and a cocktail each. On arrival we were given a complimentary upgrade to a luxury double room.
The staff were welcoming and friendly at all times and went out of their way to help.
The rooms have ipods which you can use and also GHD straighteners which is great. We also had breakfast in our room in the morning, it arrived when we asked it to and at no extra cost.
Albeit it was an 'itison' deal we were not made to feel out of place in anyway apart from our evening meal when we were placed at a long table seating 10. It felt like I was out dining with others (that i didnt know) rather than just my husband. The customers who were obviously paying full price were seated in the more private booths. Also the length of time to wait between courses was rather long as the restaurant was extremely busy.
Overall though a great stay in a funky, boutique hotel. Would defo recommend and we will return.

Tigerlily was a fantastic stay for a bit of luxury. Great locatation, modern clean room, fantastic food and drink and a few little touches that make a good stay and great one.

The downsides are a lack of parking (but expect that in Edinburgh), no bath (though a great shower) and a crazy room light system that meant I couldn't work out how to get the bathroom light on, without the main light being on.

I have stayed here twice, once on business, once on a city break. It suits both purposes: tailored towards a younger crowd, but not so achingly hip that it can't appeal to a range of tastes. The breakfast is good, the dining menu reliable - but since the large, open bar area becomes a club at night, it's hard to forget over your morning croissant that just hours before your seat was getting sloshed by a Cosmopolitan. That said, it's one of the better places for a drink in the area - whether a quiet bar drink in the early evening, or a loud night out until the small hours. Ask the helpful staff for a room that best suits your needs: whether as a well-located base for meeting up and going out, or for getting some proper rest.

Room Tip: At weekends, the higher the floor, the further you are from revellers; the reverse is true if you wa...

We stayed at the Hotel having been there for a meal previously and we were not disappointed, from the moment we arrived until we left everything was perfect.
Our room was very spacious and fitted out to a very high standard, given the choice I would rather stay on the upper floors as you could hear the music from the bar area, although it was just backround noise.
We had not booked a time for our meal in the Restaurant and were told 10pm which was a bit late for us but the staff managed to swap things around and get us into the Restaurant at 7.30 and our meal was really good.
It's a great Hotel in a cracking location.

Booked as a bed for the night whilst visiting The Kitchin for a 40th birthday treat. This is so much more that somewhere to rest your head. Staff were amazingly attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The decor and ambiance was out of this world! Beautiful in every aspect. From the amazing bar and restaurant area to the huge mirror balls that dominate the hotel stairwells. The room was unbelievable. Like something from a glossy designer mag. The bathroom was the size of a usual hotel room! Brilliant. Will definitely visit again.
