Meeting room (Rutland) set up exactly as required. Dining room (Gifford) looked great and guests were delighted with my choices from the events menu. Service very attentive but friendly. Every request satisfied. Nothing was too much trouble for the events team. We'll be back but next time we'll pre-order our table wines as the bar can get busy. Our delegates...

Stayed here for a friends wedding this weekend & it was lush, couldn't fault it. Staff were really friendly & helpful. Decor all nice and current, looked new. The wedding itself was set up brilliantly and we were never waiting long at the bar for drinks either. Planned to use the gym and pool in the morning but ended up...

Invited to special military anniversary evening in hotel. Food served at dinner was very good, service excellent. Accommodation was spacious and clean with good views from the bedroom. Public areas, hotel room corridors and carpets could do with some upgrading but the overall experience was good. Breakfast good and staff pleasant. Also good leisure facilities (gym, Pool).

Attended a private function on 11th March at this hotel. Venue was very good. A large bar area and adjoining function room were reserved for our group. The tables were beautifully decorated. The meal provided was excellent. Four courses, all delicious, and vegetarian options available. The highlight for me was the sticky toffee pudding - it was delicious. The hotel...

I had the pleasure of staying at the hotel from 9-12 March 17. The warm friendly manner in which my wife and I was received by the two immaculately dressed Reception Staff impressed from the outset and set the tone for what became an outstanding experience. We also attended A Celebration 50th Anniversary Dinner held in the Adam Suit. I...

We stayed here when we came to Edinburgh for the rugby. I booked it on Hotwire so was expecting to get a better hotel at a bargain price. It was ok - nothing to complain about, but nothing to rave about either. The room was fine and the breakfast was Ok, but they kept running out of things. It is...

I had a negative experience with a hotel I stayed at in Edinburgh at valentines. This was a bad experience as I was staying at Edinburgh Capital Hotel and from the moment we checked in the staff weren’t very helpful, they gave a brief instruction to where our room was but didn’t physically show us at all, this was a...

A group of guys travelled to Edinburgh for our bi-annual rugby trip this month. We required a hotel that had onsite car parking as we had a full car with five sets of golf clubs etc. This hotel offered everything we required and more. The location was fine - a healthy 50 mins walk to Murrayfield stadium and also close...

Hotel staff, very friendly, rooms comfortable and clean. Breakfast good but evening meal on our D,B&B package, terrible, must be the worst we have ever had, terrible food, terrible service and very small portions. My advice would be book B&B and eat out. There is a very good bus service into town from around the corner.
