Not coming back

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 13, 2005

Bad: feels really old and not in a good way, desperately needs quite a lot of renovation (for a 4* property) and, for what it is, overpriced. Certainly doesn't live up to the InterContinental brand name - no wonder they are selling it off.

Good: pleasant bar with a good selection of drinks (but hey - you're in Scotland!!), very nice staff and good location - smack in the middle of New Town.

For what it's worth, Blondie (yes, the band) stayed there for the 2005 Hogmanay :-)

200 year old ambience in Edinburgh hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 19, 2004

The hotel is very old, and it shows. Designed by Robert Adam over 200 years ago, the corridors have a truly old feel to them, and the floor presses down a little under the carpet in many places.. most rooms are somewhat renovated and have medium-aged furniture etc., but the plumming caused problems and the TV picture was bad. The public areas however, are top-notch all the way. As was the service.

Unique Quality: 195 rooms, bar, restaurant etc.
Breakfast was excellent! Try to get a room rate where it's included as it can cost quite a bit otherwise. Prices around / both sides of GBP 100 per room per night depending on the time of year.

Directions: Near city centre, excellent location, near Princess Street

Georgian style on George Street

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 12, 2004

We stayed here because we belonged to the "Six Continents" program. We had a car to meet us at the airport as part of the plan. The driver was very understanding about my bag taking a while to turn up. Once at the hotel it was pleasant. The staff was great, except maybe at Breakfast. Breakfast was included but like all Inter-Continentals the buffet was ample but so-so. (Getting an herbal tea could take a while if ever.)

We enjoyed the Clans Bar. Good selection of single malts and light meal choices.

Unique Quality: Room very nice, comfortable style, everything you would wish for in a better chain setting.
