I recently stayed at Hotel Du Vin in Edinburgh with a group of friends where we had arranged a private dinner in the hotel's 'Burk and Hare' dining room. There were 20 of us who came for a 3 course meal and 10 of us stayed in the hotel. The staff were very accommodating to help sort out menu choices, arrange rates on accommodation and on the night, the service was excellent. The food was very tasty, although perhaps a little heavy, and the portions were very generous. The Burk and Hare room is a lovely venue for any groups wishing to arrange a private area for dining and was reasonably priced. We were also able to have a private drinks reception in the hotel's Whisky Snug, which started the evening off in a gorgeous setting.
As for accommodation, we had originally booked a studio room for 3 to share. When we checked in however, we were upgraded to the Dom Perignon Suite, which was incredible. It was a stunning room, with huge bed, balcony, free standing bath, monsoon shower etc. Other guests in our party stayed in the standard rooms or studios which I think were a little on the small side. The breakfast the next morning was super- plenty of choice and the hot breakfast was made fresh to order.
Overall the best thing about the stay was the service from the staff- they helped out with every aspect of our stay.
The one negative thing I would say about this hotel is there is no parking and not even a convenient place to stop and unload your car- double yellow lines outside the hotel.
