A beautiful hotel with a serious parking problem.
Arrival was extremely stressful because of a lack of valet parking. A hotel of this caliber should not force guests to drive half a mile in wild traffic to a public lot, and then walk back to check in.( I am almost 80 year's old, with a bad back, and had driven for several hours.)I would not stay at The George again if this problem remained. The bathroom in room 405 was the size of a small closet--it was difficult to turn around. Also, the door stop was right in front of the sink, and both of us hurt our feet standing on it or stubbing our toes on it. The breakfast oatmeal and the tea was lukewarm. (After complaining, they were reheated, and we were not charged.)

Good hotel in centre of Edinburgh, so easy to walk to attractions , shops and restaurants. Room and bathroom small but a very quiet room. Josh on the door was very friendly. Breakfast was ok.
