My partner and I visited the restaurant for valentines day. We were in the room just off the reception which was very nice and atmospheric. I've eaten in the main room before which is excellent too.

We had the valentines menu and we were both happy with our food. The service was also very good.

To treat ourselves for our wedding anniversary we just had a midweek break in this charming hotel.
It's in a really great location for the castle, the Royal Mile and Grassmarket as they are all in easy walking distance.
We had breakfast included and took full advantage enjoying both the buffet style continental offering and the freshly cooked hot food.
Having seen previous comments about noise we asked for a room facing the courtyard. I think we probably sacrificed a larger bathroom and floor space for a good nights sleep, but it was well worth it.
This hotel would be ideal for anyone wanting to explore Edinburgh.

It was a pleasure to have you as our guests last week for your Wedding Anniversary and I am delighted to read you had a pleasant stay. Our hotel is a great little quaint hideaway and usually noise free, however I am glad you had a peaceful break.

I do hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back again in the very near future.

Just returned from a great 3 day weekend at Hotel Du Vin Edinburgh.

We arrived to find our room had been upgraded to a junior suite to our great joy. What a great hotel we could not fault the service we received and would like to Thank Sandy in the bar for helping to arrange table bookings for us at the Shore where he recommended two great restaurants.

We also had Sunday brunch in the Bistro this was excellent both staff and food. Nothing is too much trouble.

Thanks HDV for another great weekend we will be back.

Stayed here for a wedding anniversary treat and HdV was the perfect place for such a special and romantic break. We know Edinburgh quite well but haven't stayed here although my wife and I have enjoyed their fabulous selection of wines on several occasions. When we arrived we were informed that we'd been upgraded to a Studio Suite, that made our weekend right from the start. When we entered the room we found strawberrys dipped in chocolate and a beautifully presented red rose for my wife! Lovely!

The staff are so courteous, pleasant and do their utmost to give you a warm welcome. Cátia dealt with our check in/out and showed us round the suite to make us feel at home. She clearly enjoys her job and is a credit to HdV. There are lots of cosy places in the hotel to relax, read a book or magazine and being just a relatively short walk to the centre it's location is perfect.

There are so many places to stay in Edinburgh but after this weekend we really don't need to go anywhere else even if we stay in a standard room which look stunning too. Thank you Cátia and HdV for a beautiful stay, you made us feel so special!

Wonderful hotel hidden away in one of the quieter areas of Edinburgh city centre, albeit close enough to walk up to the Royal Mile and the Castle.

Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and upgraded us to a suite for nothing! Our room was overlooking the street but the double/triple glazing meant that this was not an issue.

Breakfast was great, plentiful and of a high quality. Didn't eat any other meals in hotel so am unable to comment.

Already planning another stay in the Autumn!

Room Tip: Doubt whether there is a dodgy room!

My husband received a 'Whisky Tasting Experience' for his 60th Birthday at The Hotel Du Vin & Bistro in Edinburgh, this voucher enable both my husband and I to enjoy this experience, the hotel holds these on every 2nd Friday but, as we would not be able to go in the week due to work commitments, the hotel very kindly allowed us to us this on Saturday 15th Feb 2014, we booked a weekend to enjoy the city of Edinburgh, and went along at 3pm, we met our host for the tasting a Wilbert Fernandes, and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience, my husband loves Malt Whisky but I am not really a fan, so I was a tiny bit apprehensive, Wilbert set the table up with 5 Malt Whiskies, Water and some samples of the dried ingrediants and peat, and began the story of how all the different Malt Whiskies are made. To say he was informative was mild, he was brillliant!!!! , no question unanswered, he is a mind of information and made our experience wonderful. He advised me to add tiny drops of water to lessen the harshness of some of the whiskies, suffice to say I really did enjoy them. Wilbert was friendly, made us feel very comfortable in his presence, we felt at the end as if he were an old friend, nothing was too much trouble and I hope this review will help others to make the decision to take part in this experience. The Hotel Du Vin has a jewel in the crown, in having Wilbert as one of their staff.
