Old Waverley Hotel in Edinburgh City Centre - Gallery | Competition

Traditional Scottish Hospitality

Located in the heart of Edinburgh the Old Waverley Hotel is a vibrant merger of Victorian charm and modern comfort. Distinguished by our traditional elegant decor the Old Waverley Hotel offers both leisure and corporate guests the perfect place to stay in the heart of the capital.

Situated on Princes Street, The Old Waverley Hotel is just a 10-minute walk from the Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace, a 10-minute walk from the banking centre of the city, and a 10-minute taxi trip from the EICC and Edinburgh Castle. We are also within walking distance from Waverley Train Station and a short drive from Edinburgh International Airport.

Due to the location, age and characteristics of the property sadly access can be challenging to those who have limited mobility.  

The hotel is a listed building and as a result, we do not have lift access from the entrance which is at street level. Therefore guests are required to climb 27 steps to access the reception which is located on the first floor. Lift access is then available to every floor above. If you require assistance with your luggage then please locate the bell at the stairs to call for a porter.

There is no onsite car parking available at the Old Waverley Hotel but our guests are entitled to receive a 40% discounted partner rate at the nearby QPARK Click here to learn more.


Planning to stay with us for Hogmanay this year?

The Hogmanay Street Party is now extended along Princes Street and will unfold right in front of The Old Waverley Hotel. For convenient access, a dedicated lane runs alongside the event arena, accessible with our provided access passes. All hotel residents and non-residents with confirmed restaurant reservations on December 31st will receive these passes.

If you’re eager to join the Street Party, be sure to snag a separate ticket for the event which can be purchased here
