This is the second hotel du vin I have stayed in, the first being York which was very enjoyable and set a good impression of this hotel chain. However, I was not as impressed with this hotel. The hotel opened in 2008, and the reception, lobby areas and bedroom look fantastic. Unfortunately some times they are not so good if... More

There was a lot I liked about this hotel and it is not hard to find things to commend. Firstly, the location is excellent being just a short stroll to the centre of the city and just yards away from the superb National Museum of Scotland. Secondly, the ambience is excellent. At every turn there is an interesting piece of... More

Given £50 HDV voucher for 50th birthday, decided to book Sunday night offer in a superior room. On arrival we were given an upgrade to a suite. The room was gorgeous with the roll top bath and huge walk-in shower. We couldn't fault anything staff, room and food in the bistro were first class! Will be back.

Where to start! I suppose that I will have to start with the Room! I stayed in the Veuve Chateau room. The one word I have is wow! The old style Victorian bath tub in the window of the room is just to die for, the bathroom was massive and with an incredible rainfall shower head feels like your somewhere... More

Had to re-visit Hotel du Vin in Edinburgh. Stayed in one of the suites (upgraded) Brought our dog (brilliantly catered for) and ate in the bistro which was fantastic. Wonderful selection of wine along with the suitable knowledge. Made for a great stay. Highly recommended

We stayed for 4 nights, we had already paid to upgrade to a Superior room, but on arrival we were given a free upgrade to a suite. Hotel staff showed us to our room, and explained the history of the hotel on route. The Bistro staff were also excellent, and went out of the way to provide perfect service. We... More

Booked 6 rooms here as part of a wedding party, mixture of standard and superior rooms to be honest there was nothing between them, the hotel overall was nice but the lounge bar is high up open plan above the restaurant and unbearably hot, I did ask if there were fans and was told only behind the bar and during...

After reading some good reviews, I booked an afternoon tea as an early Mothers Day treat for Mum & I. The hotelier lovely & is in an unusual, quirky building. We were sat upstairs overlooking the reception area, which was nice & comfortable. Glass of fizz plus proper leaf tea was brought whilst we waited. 45 MINUTES LATER the afternoon... More

We have just returned from the Hotel du vin in Edinburgh where we had booked the Sunday Evening deal - with us combining an overnight stay with the Sunday brunch. We upgraded to a larger room. Its fair to say the entire stay got off to a pretty terrible start. Our first impressions were not good - having called the... More

Dear Fiona M, Thank you for your review of hotel du vin and i am disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay. Upon investigation regarding your Brunch booking, you had booked the hotel room and lunch under 2 different names hence your reservation for lunch could not be located. This was later noticed when a table did not turn... More

The friendly and knowledgable staff will help you pair a cigar (available from the bar if you... More
