We stayed here 6 years ago and had a great stay and always wanted to return. Stayed on a special Sunday night rate with afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast. The hotel is clean in all areas. Nicely decorated. All staff we spoke to were very helpful and pleasant. Food was fantastic and room comfortable. Pool area was also good and... More

The Edinburgh Capital Hotel is a sleek, nicely-finished hotel on the outskirts of Edinburgh. On arrival the receptionist, Jovita, was very welcoming and informative. She was the staff member that stood out on our trip. The bedroom was a lot bigger than we were expecting with a lovely sized bed. The room was well furnished with a wide choice of... More

We stayed here for one night during December 2014. The public areas of the hotel are modern and fresh. Our bedroom, although quite spacious, was in need of upgrading. The carpets were dirty and stained and the room was generally very tired. The staff we spoke with were friendly and helpful. The pool area was fairly modern and was decent... More

My boyfriend booked this hotel for us to stay while seeing Wicked at the playhouse theatre. The location is about 20 mins outside the city centre but had parking which appealed to us. The bust runs very frequently and takes half an hour to get into town. The hotel itself is lovely. we were greeted by a beautiful christmas tree... More

Dear Reviewer, Many thanks for your 4 star rating, delighted that you highlighted the team members and over all facilities as being "good", obviously we cant do very much about the hotels location, but as mentioned by you the reception team will certainly book taxis and the bus service is also a worthwhile option.

The location of the hotel is convenient enough, with a bus running from close nearby, to the city centre reasonably frequently. The bus seems to stop every 50 metres on the way into town which makes the journey in seem very long. The journey back is a lot quicker. The staff were, for the most part, pleasant, helpful and efficient... More

This one is 20 mins from City Center.The bus # 26 is close to the hotel but not very frequent. An average hotel and wouldnt say a value for money one too.

Stayed here a few times now... This is a lovely hotel situated about 25min from the city centre and pretty close to the Airport... The hotel is large and has a good restaurant and bar facilities for meals.. Meals are more than enough to suit most people... Breakfasts are lovely with more than enough choice even for the fussy eaters... More

The hotel is about 15 minutes drive from Edinburgh and fairly close to the airport. Rooms are large and comfortable with everything expected at this grade of hotel. The gym is very well equipped and a 17m pool is bonus. A steam room and sauna are both worth a visit. Breakfast is more than adequate, with a wide choice of... More

I stayed for one night on business and it is a perfectly adequate hotel for that. Judging by the fact that most of the people at breakfast were business people it seems like this is the market they are going for. It's not an ideal location for tourists. There were only 2 things that I did not like. Firstly the... More
