The Old Waverley Hotel on Princes Street Edinburgh is one of the Edinburgh’s oldest and best loved hotels. A hotel has stood on this site since the first half of the 19th Century, and is much a part of Edinburgh’s history as Princes Street itself.
Built as a temperance hotel by Robert Cranston, it was originally known as simply the Waverley Hotel. When Cranston expanded his empire in 1868, as well as building temperance hotels in London and Liverpool, he built the New Waverley Hotel at Waterloo Place. From then, to this day, the original Waverley hotel on Princes Street became known to one and all as the Old Waverley Hotel.
We are confident you will experience a welcome as warm as you would have received 150 years ago.
The Old Waverley 3-star hotel in Scotland is now part of The Edinburgh Collection. For further details please see www.theedinburghcollection.com
