This place is a rip-off, very small portions of lukewarm food. If you want extras such as chips or vegetables you will have to pay for them. It's as if they said how little can we serve and get away with. My husband ordered chicken which was just that - a piece of chicken. My risotto was cold, tasteless and... More

Stayed here on combined business / leisure, one night only. Needed to stay near Edinburgh and know the immediate area. Good Location Accommodation was fine. Did't get a sea view room, they were all booked. (View recommended) Service / attentiveness from ALL staff was well above average. 10/10 Whoever owns this place clearly looks after their employees, or at least... More

I stayed at the Orocco whilst on business in the area. Due to the lack of normal rooms I had an executive room. I must say that all the staff are lovely, the room was nice and the view across the Forth is one of the best you'll get. The reason for only 3/5 is that the Orocco seems to... More

We had a lunch with kids and friends. Very busy with a wedding party but the restaurant kept the tables for restaurant visitors away from the busy area (opposite side), so it was ok. Lunch was a big portion. I had fish and chips. Pleasant waiteresses (I found waiters a bit arrogant and not very friendly), good views from the... More

We stayed in a room looking out to the bridges and it was awesome. Best check in service we have ever experienced and such friendly staff throughout our stay. The full scottish breakfast was truly amazing. Fabulous venue fantastic staff!!!

My partner and I stayed for 2 nights at the Orocco pier 13/14 August. The hotel was advertised as free wifi in all rooms, not so in my room (number 6) I either had to stand in the hall or go down to the reception area. When we went to have dinner in the Samphire restaurant we sat down at... More

We were thrilled with our wedding on 2nd August 2014. Orocco Pier handled every area of our wedding exceptionally; from planning to the actual day. As we don’t live in Scotland it was really important that we could communicate regularly via phone and email as we only had a few opportunities to visit face-to-face. The team got back to us... More

We had our wedding in Orocco Pier on 24th July and it was absolutely fabulous. We both work abroad, so planning a wedding in Edinburgh could have been difficult if Orocco Pier hadn't been so efficient. The wedding co-ordinators Alison and Laura were organised, brilliant at communicating and pretty much sorted things we hadn't even considered! On the day Jason... More

My boyfriend and i stayed at Orocco Pier recently when our friends got married. Wedding wise it was a lovely venue (although bar prices were quite expensive.) The food was lovely and the location with its views of the bridges was perfect. Hotel wise, our room was lovely. It was quite small but fine for one night. I'd be tempted... More
