After enjoying a fabulous lunch at Hotel du Vin one Devonshire we were looking forward to visiting Edinburgh. The outdoor area of the bistro is pleasant and what I saw if the hotel it looked nice. We had a champagne lunch voucher, this started off well enough and we made our orders. Starters were very small and below standard, we... More

I booked this restaurant, sight unseen, for a family reunion dinner in June. It was not easy to find a table for 9 on a Saturday night in high season, but I received excellent help and attention from Emma O'Hara, who coordinated the event for me. We emailed and spoke on the phone several times, and although I was initially... More

Candles and maybe some jazz or swing music could help this.. The staff were attentive enough- the service wasn't bad but feel for the standard of this hotel the staff are certainly not... More

Loved the hotel! Great room, comfortable and loved the toiletries! The Bistro was awful though. Staff were sleepy. Food was really bad!

Visited Saturday, 1.06.14 at 12. My party was an informal wedding party of 10 and we were there for drinks and food. We sat outside with the lovely weather being nice too us. It took us a while to get the coffee we ordered with even longer waiting for some tap water. We had to ask every time to get... More

We had drinks/cocktails here before moving onto a restaurant one night. The little courtyard is gorgeous and could be so much more. There was a waiter who seemed to pick and choose who he served outside and who he didn't! We had to go upstairs for service! The cocktails were pretty poor given the price of them. Really average but... More

Voucher purchased for Champagne Lunch for two people, booked 2pm on a Saturday afternoon for hubby and myself. Very relaxed atmosphere, given a choice of tables. Menu consisted on 4 starters, mains and desserts so sure there would be something for everyone. Our champagne was served and we gave our waiter, Sandy, our orders. We both had mackerel pate to...

We had afternoon tea here to celebrate a friends birthday. There were 11 of us and the hotel were very good at arranging everything in advance for us. We were given the Whisky snug ( small cosy room looking out onto the courtyard, with several sofas, chairs and tables and a fire) and a waiter all to ourselves. It was... More

I purchased a voucher for Hotel Du Vin for £29.00 for two people to have a 3 x course lunch, glass of champagne and tea/coffee after the meal, so my friend and I used it on Saturday for a boozy lunch. First impressions were good. The place had a nice atmosphere - very relaxed. Since it was quite warm we... More
