Went to watch a Edinburgh capitals game with my dad and it was great but the seats were sore and it was way colder than any other arena in the league.so if you're going wrap up and bring a cushion

The place is old and smelly, but it's a great place to watch hockey! The staff are friendly and helpful and welcoming. The views from the away block were great. The only thing I found annoying was that you couldn't take your beer down into...More

Yes the rink is very dated, the seats are wooden and it's colder inside than out in march, but it's a great night out, good announcer, cheerleaders and mascot? Some food/drinks available but no alcohol allowed inside! There is a bar outside and upstairs with...More

Every time we come to Edinburgh (from Australia) we always book to see an Edinburgh Capitals game. The arena is a little dated but well maintained. Lots of snacks and treats available during the games. We love it here.

I love coming to Murrayfield for the hockey, and I'd really recommend doing so to anyone. The action is fast, furious, entertaining and the fans are terrific. Even when the Edinburgh Capitals are losing the fans are great and the players really put in the...More

Murrayfield Ice Rink is very good, fun place to go with friends and family. Staff members are very good at helping customers. But t has be said that the 1930s building Is in need of some renovation.

We visited the rink last week for a major national ice dance competition. I love this old rink, it has a character that is just missing in these modern rinks. People are always friendly and welcoming. But it is important to bring warm clothing. Plenty...More

Hi, Food is limited to simple things, chips, hotdogs, stovies etc. The food is okay so it depends if you want something to keep you going (rink food) or a proper meal (eat first)

Hi, a bit late now but we sat in the Gold 19 section, which is where most away fans sit. There are plenty of available seats, and the Caps fans are welcoming.
