I find it difficult to categorise this hotel as on the one hand it is looking for business travellers whom it charges quite handsomely, but then it seems to be a thriving wedding and events location and then on top of it all it caters to busloads of tourists. As mentioned before by others it is quite difficult to sleep... More

Dear Reviewer, Naturally I am concerned and disappointed to read that you have left the hotel with such a negative impression. As a full service hotel we do indeed serve as more than just bedrooms, and yes this includes weddings and coach groups, not really that strange unless your comparison is with a rooms only establishment. In regards to the... More

I stayed at the Edinburgh Capital Hotel around 1 1/2 weeks ago, and have since been looking for a medium to voice my concerns, I can only hope that my spiel may save a family or two from having their holidays severely affected in the future. The hotel itself is OK, it does not provide the luxury you may expect... More

Dear Reviewer, Naturally your feedback makes for a disturbing read, whilst its true to say that our full service hotel holds over 80 weddings plus various other celebrations events we do not intend for other guests to be disturbed by other guests using the facilities, I am therefore sorry to hear that on this occasion it has. The conversation you... More

We used the Edinburgh Capital Hotel to host a training day for 20 of our customers. Really pleased with the result. The staff were spot on - couldn't have been more helpful. Bacon butties in the morning, hot buffet at lunch time. Three of us stayed the night before. No fuss evening meal. Just what we wanted. We would certainly... More

Driving up from Cumbria, we were met with a stylish reception and very helpful staff. The room we had booked wasn't quite ready when we arrived, but that didn't matter as it gave us chance to stretch our legs and see what the bar had to offer. Once our room was ready and we were all checked in, we headed... More

Our experience of the Edinburgh capital hotel almost ruined our holiday. We booked our hotel room on the 12th November for one night on the 18th of June. Six months in advance and at a cheaper rate than we should have paid as it was the week of the highland show. To be told when we arrived they had over... More

Good room, good food. Great friendly, helpful staff. Magda at reception went out of her way to be of assistance and it was much appreciated. You can take a very pleasant walk down the hill to the village, it takes about 20 minutes. It’s a bit of a steep walk back but buses are regular and stop just around the... More
