We held our wedding at The Scotsman last weekend and cannot thank the hotel enough for a truly amazing time!
First night - I checked into the hotel on the Friday afternoon and the doorman were superb in assisting in bringing our many bags and boxes into the hotel and moving them safely into the various function rooms. Reception were super friendly and I was checked into my room very quickly. The suite was beautiful, very spacious, clean and as I was spending the night with my two bridesmaids, they had made a sofa bed up in the 'living area'. The suite included a large bedroom, living area, a dining table with 4 chairs, dressing area, large bathroom with separate bathtub and shower, lots of wardrobe space, two televisions and lots of little 'special touches' like a filled whisky decanter with shot glass, slippers, robes, privacy hatch etc. Lots of space for getting ready on the morning of my wedding and lovely views of the city. The bed was super comfy and I enjoyed a great sleep!
Our Wedding - Held in the hotel, was perfect. We are so happy that we chose to hold our wedding in this iconic 5* hotel that really lived up to it's reputation. The staff were so helpful, especially Leah and Willie, who could not do more for us. The reception rooms are tastfully decorated and little touches, like the candle lit marble staircase were the perfect backdrop for our special day. The cocktails were absolutely delicious and our wedding meal was super. We are still receiving compliments from our guests on how good the food was (especially the Butternut Squash soup!! I've lost count of how many people have asked if I can get them the recipe!!) The service was outstanding, such friendly staff and I know our guests will be talking about our wedding for a long time to come!
Our Wedding Night - on our wedding day we were advised that we had been upgraded to the Penthouse Suite (OMG!!!) such a lovely amazing surprise. The suite is utterly beautiful, complete with balcony views of Edinburgh castle, a huge roll top bathtub, sauna, spiral staircase, thee comfiest bed in the world, walk in closet and the most spectacular views of the city. Breakfast was served in our room and was very very yummy!!
I am now talking my now husband into booking us up for our first year anniversary!!
