The location is very close to the Royal Mile, so you can walk to many things. IF you are taking a car, be prepared to walk a bit to and from it. The parking is down the hill from the hotel at Waverly Station, and the walk back up can be taxing. Also, the entrance to the car park is a bit harrowing. The bed was too hard for me, and the pillow choices weren't much better. The reception staff were alright, but the restaurant and bar staff were loads of fun (except for one).

My friend & I were breaking up a long drive north with a stop around Edinburgh with our stop here. The rooms were very comfortable and it was a great place to rest for the night. The hotel restaurant was really good and the prices weren't crazy.
My only complaints are a couple issues with some of the staff, most of whom seemed pretty unfriendly. The first issue was check-in where the lady working the desk was a bit gruff. I'd booked the two twin bed room with the option that came with free parking as we'd have the car. We asked about parking as there was a ticket gate and she said it would be £4. I said I booked our room with free parking but she claimed they didn't offer that on Expedia. I used the mobile app to pull up my booking and showed her where the included amenity on my booking stated free parking. She begrudgingly agreed to give in to the free parking and seemed pretty surly about it.
Our second issue was on check-out with the room charges when I questioned the total as being more than we spent. The problem was a bill from stopping in the hotel bar to get hot chocolate to take up to the room. We didn't notice when we signed the bill the evening prior that a £50 tip had been included on the bill for our two hot chocolates (that were £5 total). I pointed out the exorbitant tip on the bill and the staff on the desk said it was probably an accident from when the bill was keyed in and quickly took the charge off the bill.

Great clean and spacious room, lovely staff, only problem the heating was not working, would only blow cold air out!, they did bring me a portable radiator, but my room was cold. Would stay here again as it is a lovely stay.
