... but it seemed a mighty shame to me. We moved on to a pub with a pool table and played about 4 games with a pint for each, then after I had used the pool chalk to draw a strange man on the black felt of the ceiling to which I vainly signed my name and the date, we called it a night and stumbled home.
Fighting off a splitting headache the next morning, I went straight to the castle first thing. I spent a good half a day getting a feel for the place, exploring ...
... Europe. So many sights and experiences will not be forgotten anytime soon. I'm sure I'll have many of stories left to tell about my favorite days and stuff I would never do again because of course I can't write it all. The near future of how or when I'll be home is still somewhat unclear, but I'm sure it will be just as much as an adventure as the last 6 weeks. "Every man dies. Not every man really lives."

Well today was the last morning to London and I can say that I am happy to be leaving. For one, I am excited to go to Edinburgh. And for two, London has been completely different than I expected. I have enjoyed my time here in London, but I can see that this is not a city that I would want to live in. The people here are very rude - something I expected when I went to France last year. And this type of city is just not for me. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Tigerlily Edinburgh
My husband and I have just got back from Tigerlily and mostly we found it to be a great place. The location is good in the middle of the New Town, reception, bars and restaurant all look great, and our room was similarly fabulous. We had a mini-suite on the 1st floor (room 2) which was actually recommended by the receptionist as being the best room when we called to book- and it really was lovely. Very large with high ceilings as it was in the original Georgian part of the hotel - huge and very comfortable bed - and minimal trendy bathroom.
Had a great night at Tigerlily. Have been there quite a few times to sample their fabulous cocktails but my husband surprised me with a stay over. The room was in the old part of the building, beautiful high ceilings and lots of unexpected extras such as The White Company products in the bathroom, candles and lights you could dim 'til your hearts content. The furnishing and finishing of the room was excellent. If you can't get booked for dinner try Time for Thai round the corner and if the bar gets too busy just get room service to deliver your Lavender and Chocolate Bellini and sit in your big comfy armchair with your fire switched on and listen to the music on the ipod they so kindly provide pre-loaded with great music (or bring your own). Breakfast was not included in the price, but the receptionist said she would throw it in for the price we had paid for the room. Whilst it was a lovely gesture you would think at £245 a night they could just include it. Service at Breakfast was very very slow but as we were in no hurry to leave it wasn't much of a problem. I would thoroughly recommend it and would love to stay again.
JUST TH BEST
we have just had the most amazing weekend at tigerlily. we have seldom had a better time in the uk. the hotel is truly superb, the staff spot on and the food (including breakfast ) fantastic. the room we had really had everything you could ever want, the fire, plasma and a very very commfy bed!!!. we felt like we never wanted to leave. the weekend was rounded of by us having a boogey in the very stylish club (lulu) downstairs. we have already booked to go again.
Simplement le meilleur
Nous venons de passer le plus merveilleux weekend au Tigerlily. Nous n'avons jamais passé de si bons moments au Royaume Uni. L'hôtel est vraiment superbe, le personnel impeccable et la nourriture (y compris le petit déjeuner) était fantastique. La chambre avait tout ce dont on avait besoin et un lit très très confortable !!! On ne voulait plus partir. Pour couronner le weekend, on a dansé le boogy dans la boite branchée (lulu) juste en bas. Nous avons déjà réservé pour revenir.
Great Girlie Weekend !!
Went on a girlie weekend to Edinburgh and we had booked 3 rooms in Tigerlilly. We had a fab time and all thought the rooms were of a very high standard, with wee touches that you would not expect to find in a standard hotel room. Each of the rooms we had were different, so had fun having a nosey round them all!
The only downside was that we could not eat there for dinner which meant that we had to leave for dinner and then come back as we wanted to have some cocktails in the bar and dance the night away in the club. The one consolation was that we didn't have to stand in line to get back in.
We would all go back and some of us with our other halfs for a romantic night or two away
This is a modern hotel with a real good feel to it.
Tigerlily Hotel : Style and Substance
Stayed at the Tigerlily for a longweekend in Edinburgh. It was love at first sight. For me and my style junkie friends it was a perfect mix of comfort and cool. The whole place shimmers and buzzes...a true flower in the garden that is Edinburgh. Loved the loaded ipods, roomy baths, fabulous (and long) ingenious cocktail menu. Only downside was a limited and not too fabulous room service menu, but there are loads of restaurants nearby, so that really should not put anyone off. Great Location one block from Princes Street means shopping and sightseeing a mere stones throw away. I would go back in a heartbeat.
On the same day I find myself compelled to post reviews of both the best and worst places I have ever stayed, the latter seeming all the more dreadful by its comparison with the former. This, however, is the good one.
There is nothing much to see outside Tigerlily, It looks like just another really busy bar on George Street. We were there on a Saturday night and the bar was jumping. If I hadn't already booked i might not have stayed but I am so glad I did. Entrance to the hotel is through the bar - if you arrive late skip the queue and let the doorman know you are staying at the hotel. Reception staff were welcoming and efficient.
