    This was the second visit that my wife and I have made to this museum and it still fascinates both of us, predominantly as I am a veteran of twenty-four years service in the Army, and my wife was the daughter of a soldier. Our last visit was in October 2022, and although the museum was closed for the Winter, Ian, the owner, let us have a quick look around for free as we were on our way back to Leicester. This time the museum was fully open, and so much has changed in the few months since we last visited. There's so much to see, and as reported in my last review, if you are in any way interested in militaria then you will love this place. We would both highly recommend this museum, and it's certainly worth a visit if you are in the area.

    Highly recommend using this facility. the research catalogue is of top quality and the staff are the loveliest people who are always on hand to help and guide. the research rooms can get busy but everyone respects the other person so although the desks are together in rows they still provide a quiet and respectful environment to do whatever research is needed with your laptop/tablets/notebooks etc . just a 2 min walk from Waverly train station they can provide you with a all day research session for £15 and for a very small fee (you pre-buy credits) printed copy's of your ancestors birth deaths marriages etc. What i would agree with is that the online experience does not reflect the in person one and i do agree that its more expensive, every document you view, you have to use a credit so one name search can yield multiple names and you would have to use up your credits going through them to find your ancestor. my suggestion to put forward is charge the set fee of £15 a day which i am sure most people would be happy to pay and you could continue your research at home if you are unable to go into the building but i do understand the security of the documents. it would have been great especially in the pandemic. But i give the building, the employees and the facilities a 5 star review please try it. Thank you

    Attended to see the Socially Distant Sports Bar live show and the venue was great, bar staff were incredibly efficient and it was only five minutes from Haymarket.

    While our own meeting rooms are not large enough to allow for socially distanced meetings in large groups, we have been using ETCV quite a lot since we started meeting face to face again. Customer care is second to none before, during and after - people just cannot do enough for you and are very proactive in following up tentative bookings, making sure they have noted all your requirements, etc, while always accommodating late additions. You can hire all necessary equipment for virtual attendance and will receive any help required with regards to technical issues. Hot drinks and biscuits are free, and for only £4 extra per person, they provide a really nice buffet lunch. It goes without saying that everything is always very well planned, clean and safe with regards to Covid prevention. They`re not cheap, but they really do take care of everything for you - all you have to do is turn up. Only slight niggle is lack of parking but the central location is ideal for public transport - but who would have ever though that this would ever become one to avoid?

    Escape the madness of 'The Mile' in this wee pocket of peace.
    The fusion of old city wall and modern design is stunning .
    Welcoming staff . A vast collection of poetry , fiction and non fiction plus an array of tourist info. Great paintings of Scottish writers on display at the moment and a whole corner of kids' activities .
    Must return to spend a few hours on serious reading.

    This is - by far - the most striking building on the Royal Mile.
    The Gothic look of the building immediately attracts your look.
    The building currently houses a gallery and some conferences.

    Loved the Killers. The arena was a good venue for the size of the concert with great amenities and friendly staff. Would definitely go back, amazing memories!

    It is a great venue with good mix of space and helpful team. The large windows provided plenty of light and gorgeous views. Our participants loved it. Would use again. Scottish Recovery Network

    I've visited the Assembly Rooms on a number of occasions with my most recent one being for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It's a great venue which lends itself to various events. I've also attended ceilidhs and political talks in the run up to the 2014 referendum at the Assembly Rooms. They're a bit of an Edinburgh institution and definitely worth a visit.

    We visited the venue for our work Christmas party, which incuded a tour of the Zoo's Chinese lantern festival. A stunning old building, with a large area for dining, which doubled up as a dancefloor for the disco later on. Unfortunately, the bar was in a seperate room, which meant people drifted off to get drinks and didn't return to the main part of the venue. Staff were excellent and very professional. Great place for corporate functions, with breakout rooms over two floors depending on your requirements.

    This is a great place to start a holiday. It’s quiet and very comfortable and it also gets you away from the swarms queuing in the other airport bars. The staff are very friendly and service is excellent.

    It's okay library, near local pubs and restraunts near by. When your inside the library it's not the biggest of places and if you want to use a public computer or to print you need to have a library card. I'm not sure if they issue temporary ones?! I'm not sure if there is public toilets in this library and there is no cafe or anywhere inside here to get a drinks or snacks.

    The day was good, but the security at the entrance ruined it, making you walk around barriers , through puddles n mud, especially when there was no queue at all at the entrance gate, my 3yr old got soaked, this is what ruined the day, everyone was moaning about it, there was no need to walk around barriers when entrance was empty, I would say get it sorted for 2024 or change security
