This was our second stay and we can't fault the hotel. Lovely room, food and service ticks our boxes. If you want to spend extra £ for a quality hotel in Edinburgh that is near all the main attractions, then consider this fine hotel. We look forward to our next visit!

My 4th Hotel du Vin and no regrets, I'll definitely look for one in other cities I may happen to visit. The rooms are more "standard" than those in York and Henley, but the restaurant may be even better - not to mention the fabulous wine selection, and that the sommelier, Tomasz, must be one of the best in all...

Excellent location, near the University. Very nicely furnished and serviced. Room was well equipped but quite small. Staff were friendly. But it is very expensive and I found the whole concept and style a bit pretentious.

Exceptional service from every member of staff. A nicely restored hotel central to Edinburgh. Room was very comfortable if a bit on the smaller side. Everything you touch was top notch. Bar and bistro were both very impressive, breakfast was cooked to order, buffet options were good and everything seemed very fresh. Not your typical place, well worth a visit... More

The bathroom was stocked full of toiletries and there was a waterfall shower. Location is perfect for the Royal Mile. At £179 per night for a standard room,... More

Superb overnight stay to take in the amazing Slava's Snow Show at Festival Theatre. Took standby upgrade option and got wonderful Dom Perignon room at substantial saving. Bistro meal comprised Shetland scallops and a shared chateaubriand. The dining room has a great atmosphere and the meal was excellent, the flavour and cooking of the food was second to none but...

We had a midday flight from EDI and rather than travel up from Yorkshire to Scotland on the morning of the flight we decided to take it easy, travel up by train and spend the night in Edinburgh prior to flying out. The Hotel du Vin fitted the bill perfectly. We booked a special offer for Sunday night which gave... More
