wedding at Minto Hotel. It is such a shame when despite all the planning things go wrong. We arrived in the afternoon as guests of a much looked forward to wedding. BAD start only one staff member at the very busy bar. She ran out of change and the queue was quickly out the door. There was a definite lack... More

Mum phoned the reception and we talked to Melanie, who was really... More

Stayed in this "hotel" for three nights while visiting Edinburgh. During the visit, the sheets were not even changed once not was the room cleaned. The mattress was of very poor quality and there was a gap between two single matresses on a double bed. The room size was just a little bigger that the bed itself with hardly anywhere... More

I was booked this hotel for work and stayed 2 nights (Monday and Tuesday). When I arrived, I realised I'd stayed here in the past, a number of years ago. The hotel is ok, but just ok and it could be much better. There are no major issues, there are however a number of small things which just let the... More

I stayed at the Minto hotel last month and had a great experience. I was not happy with my bed sheets so they changed them immediately and an apology letter was given to me for the inconvenience. Excellent customer service and I will definitely stay there again.

We were invited to this hotel as part of a wedding reception. The suite was tastefully decorated however that is all I can complement. The drink prices are absolutely ridiculous, I can't believe that for a bottle of beer and a small bottle of prosecco it was £13.80! The prosecco was warm and a cheap make so I can't for... More

Arrived at the Minto Hotel to be informed our room had been altered. Unsure what to expect we walked into the beautiful honeymoon suite. The staff were fabulous. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable. The location was ace bus stops right outside 10 mins to the city and parking facilities. We couldn't have asked for anything... More
