On the outskirts of the fabulous city of Edinburgh, but well serviced by bus. The staff - my boyfriend and I encountered - were mediocre at best. Even more mediocre than the staff was the food. Positives aspects are: the quality of the hotel building, the rooms, the pool area and the reasonable price of accommodation.

I found the staff friendly and helpful. The restaurant menu, while not exactly gourmet (it's not that sort of place) is highly decent and contains something for everyone, as does the breakfast buffet. I like the gym as it contains four treadmills along with other equipment (I'm one of those workout addicts who is only happy if I can run!)... More

Hotel is kept in very good condition, it's clean and looks stylish. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with all the usual commodities. Bathroom was nice. Often in hotels these can be hit and miss but it was great. The leisure facilities are brilliant, just missing a jacuzzi. Sauna and steam rooms are fab. Staff were polite and friendly, especially...

Very Disappointed by the customer service in refusing to allow a change of date when couldn't travel due to poorly child, even when the proposed alternative date would have been a more expensive booking for the hotel. Needless to say when we do make the rearranged trip it won't be to this hotel. Whilst accepting that the booking was supposed... More

Dear Reviewer, As advised at the time of the hotels closure back in April last year this was a forced shut down due to a main water pipe leak, this left the hotel with no running water and we had no other choice but to close the hotel. Whilst I appreciate that this was far from ideal the team did... More

Eighteen of us in a family group had an excellent New Year's Day Meal at the Capital Hotel. The food and the service were excellent, and everyone in age range 86 years to 10 months were catered for in a friendly and positive way. All the staff were positive and customer-centred, but I'd particularly mention Nitin, the Restaurant Manager, who... More
