“So much better than expected”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 via mobile

We selected this place based on tripadvisor comments.
Believe them. This place is great and much better than we thought. Should be number one of the city!
Check is fast, rooms are amazing! Large beds, huge nice bathroom.
The restraunt and bars are best in town.
Very nice design furniture all around the hotel.
Can't wait to get back to this place!

Booked into the Jnr Mini Suite (room 6) for a Saturday night. The room was fantastic! Couldn't fault it, massive bed, beautiful shower area and suite area with a wall mounted wide screen tv.

On first arrival we were met at reception by friendly and helpful staff with everything running like clockwork.

The food is amazing! Personal recommendation is the scallops then the three little pigs. The Irish male waiter (sorry didn't catch his name) was brilliant. Very attentive without being overbearing, with a enthusiastic attitude. I'm generally a pint of beer kinda guy but the cocktails were amazing.

Thank you very much to the staff for a wonderful stay, will definitely be back again.

We stayed at the hotel for a Saturday night in July, arrived around 1:20pm (while check-in time is 2pm) to a snobby receptionist.The receptionist promised to give us a call when the room was ready so we walked around George St., Princes St., spent some time in a park before we headed back to the hotel around 2:40pm (this time served by another snobby receptionist) and still had to wait until after 3pm. From the other reviews this seems like some kind of systematic problem.

The room was absolutely beautiful and clean, a big separate bathroom, very comfortable beds, amazing furniture.

We spent the night in a close-by venue watching a great local band and returned to the hotel around 12:30am. The hotel entrance and the bar were completely packed, the music was exceptionally loud and the elevator was blocked by round about a dozen drunken guys trying to party inside the 4-prs-elevator cab. So we had to find the stairs up to our room.

In the room it was way too loud to think of sleeping, it felt like the loud bass made the bed swing. There were people walking around the corridor, doors clapping every now and then and even some people trying to open our door. After the music stopped between 3am and 3:30am there was still lots of noise coming in from the corridor.

The receptionist on checkout next morning was friendlier than the two guys during checkin.

Having lived in Edinburgh my whole life and tried nearly every venue the wee burgh has to offer, Tigerlily is surpassed by none. After a long hard week in the office, some much needed catch up time with friends was over due and Tigerlily is the place to go! The experience starts at the door with the friendly and welcoming door staff. On entry the atmosphere is electric and the decor is stylish and chic! Given it is a popular venue you're not always guaranteed a seat but the staff will do their best to accomodate. Being served is not a hassle, the bar team are friendly and efficient. Drinks are reasonably priced given the location and the quality of ingredients used. If you're struggling to pick a drink the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. This may sound a little "too far" but you know you're in a nice place when the bathrooms are well kept! This may be down to the cheery toliet attendant, who is always doing spot checks. Throughout the evening we could see the door staff and hostesses keeping a watchful eye so safety is never an issue. After a few delicious cocktails, it was on to the nightclub underneath which upholds the same expectations and highstandards of tigerlily. On exiting Tigerlily the door staff greeted us and thanked us for our business. These little touches are what make Tigerlily such an excellent venue to attend. Highly recommended.

We stayed one night via secret escapes deal. We were supposed to check in by 2pm but the room was not ready until 3pm due to a busy period the day before (complimentary tea given but not the point). Our bags were taken to our room however we initially told room 22 but was given room 16 (our bags were in room 22). Apparently there were double booking entries. The ipod in the room did not work as it would not charge and this reported to reception but was not changed. The meal at night in the restaurant was lovely (good atmosphere) and well recommended and the staff were great. At breakfast, the haggis was not on the plate as advertised and when we queried this we was told that it should have been and we were provided with a side order after the meal had finished. Just the little things that added up that spoilt the whole package.

Great hotel, great location, the staff were really friendly and helpful. Room was a great size, lovely big bathroom and bathtub!
Breakfast in the room for no extra charge was amazing, one of the best hotel breakfasts I have had, and the pre order the night before made it realy easy! Would defiantly go back, hopefully for longer next time!

Room Tip: We had the Georgian suite and it was lovely!
