“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

We stayed at this beautiful and hip hotel in 2010. It was a little pricey but we were only there for a couple of days and it was so worth it. The hotel itself was gorgeous with its lounge, bar, restaurant and breakfast area. The breakfast was AWESOME and very American, which is great because it Europe breakfast is normally not what we are used to. The staff were all very polite, spoke perfect english and accomadating. The room was AMAZING!! It was huge with a huge and very comfortable bed. I believe it was the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept in. The rainforest shower was also wonderful. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel, our stay here or Edingburgh. It was a truly wonderful experience

Stayed at Tiger on Monday night, beautiful room to relax in, soft towels, quality soaps etc, they had reserved a table for my meeting which was quiet, staff could not have been more helpful, decided to stay for dinner (one of the good decisions that day), food was exquisite with excellent choice of wines. Woke the next morning refreshed and ready for the day. Overall a very restful experience with very attentive staff a venue not to be missed if coming to Edinburgh!

We stayed in a luxury double room with Tigerlily's spring break offer. The room was very clean and spacious. It had good lighting and mirrors and a proper hair dryer! Very important to women (take note other hotels!!) We were offered breakfast in our room free of charge which was a real bonus. Our deal included a bottle of wine each night delivered to our room and a 2 course dinner. The food was delicious, the staff very pleasant and helpful. The bar and restaurant was buzzing and lively. Cannot fault our experience and thoroughly recommend.

I booked Tigerlily in Edinburgh as a weekend treat for me and my wife. We have both stayed there previously in a luxury double room and I had booked the same type of room again, but we received a bonus of being upgraded on check-in to a Junior Suite. This room was amazing and it was a shame we were only staying for one night as you could easily spend a week in this room to make the most of the features and space. It came with a flatscreen TV on the wall, a DVD player and iPod and dock. The bathroom was enormous and had the largest walk-in shower that I have ever seen. Our room, on the third (top) floor of the hotel was very quiet. All of the incidentals, such as towels, dressing gowns, cushions, etc. were of a higher quality than you usually get in hotels.

The bed was enormous, although it was 2 twin beds locked together so there was a seam in the middle and I wouldn’t say it was the most comfortable bed I’ve been in. However, the various lounge seats were very comfortable. We had breakfast in the room, served at the table and chairs. When eating in the room it seemed like the chairs were too low for the table and not the most comfortable eating positions.

These are however very minor points and overall the experience was fantastic and a real feeling of luxury and pampering. We had a couple of drinks in the bar before heading out onto George Street for the rest of the night. That’s another great thing about TIgerlily – it is in a fantastic location. The Tigerlily bar was busy but easy to get served. It has a great range of beers, wines and cocktails. The bar staff were efficient and friendly and would most likely mix any cocktail drinks you ask for.

The hotel staff were also very friendly and nothing seemed too much bother. Breakfast was brought up by 2 members of staff in the morning and the food was hot and fresh and, although the eggs were a little overdone, the breakfast was very nice.

We look forward to going back to Tigerlily again and highly recommend staying here for a romantic break or for something different to the usual hotel chains.

Stayed in one of the suites, and it was so beautiful! Loved the red track lighting and the fireplace. Great service, close to a lot of the Edinburgh nightlife (one of the more underrated things about Edinburgh) and a fun stay. Would love to come back here.

I first tried Tigerlily about 18 months ago and love the place.

The rooms are fantastic. The service is great. The food is awesome. You can party till dawn or go to bed early (in a peaceful room with a comfy bed) easily. Whatever takes your fancy.

Room has nice snacks, mini bar, great bathrooms, comfy beds, great towels, great slippers, great gowns, irons that work ... As I said .... It the little things! Really, they make all the difference.

Fantastic location too.

What a find. What a great place.

If in Edinburgh, stay here at least once. It's good. Nah, really good.
