My daughter entered a competition on Facebook for a Mothers Day overnight stay at The Fiddlers Elbow in Picardy Place, Edinburgh. On our arrival we were made very welcome by the staff and shown to our room which was on the top floor with stunning views towards the Forth. We then headed to the bar and all drinks £2.50. For...

We got this hotel through a voucher deal. When we arrived we were met by the staff and shown to our room which was due to be at the top of the hotel. When my wife said she had arthritis, we got shown to Room number 1 to make it easier. It was really clean and faced onto the main... More

My niece, who's 3, could have made a better meal. Only about 3 drinks on tap & even the first pint was off. Toilets not much nicer either. Terrible. Avoid like the plague. Shame as it used to be nice.

However, we had a great stay. The rooms were very clean and quirky. Yes there is a climb to the rooms, yes its very noisy... More

Arrived in Edinburgh on Friday afternoon, having booked a two night stay at this hotel a few months before. We were extremely disappointed, not to mention angry, having driven over 300 miles, to learn that the hotel did not have our booking. Apparently, the hotel was under new management, the previous owner had gone bust and the current owners were... More

Booked a table for two for 6 p.m. last Thursday courtesy of a Groupon voucher. When my friend and I arrived the pub was extremely busy and very noisy. OK, it was Thursday late night shopping - but the clientele were not all shoppers and were primarily young drinkers. To get us a table, a member of staff had to... More

The starters came with soggy salad which was very off putting and the goujons were prettly tatstless. My main of macaroni had no flavour either but did enjoy my dessert. The service was good but...
