“Afternoon Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

We had afternoon tea on a Monday afternoon using an Itison voucher and were very pleased with the service and quality of food. There was plenty to eat and we even had an extra person which they welcomed at no extra charge,
The Bothy Restaurant was very pleasant with plenty room and excellent service from the staff.
We will certainly be returning for more.

Hi John L

I am delighted that you had such a great experience, the offer you mentioned is going down very well indeed.

Next time your passing you should pop in for dinner and have the Lamb Shank Shepheards Pie, its amazing.

Have a great New Year

I decided to book this place as it seemed a good price at just £44 per night. We stayed for 2 nights. This was for one of the rooms in the main hotel. After booking i was unsure of staying here after seeing the pictures and was thinking of booking somewhere else. But i must say im glad i stuck with the choice to stay here. My partner & me were in one of the refurbished rooms, we were both impressed with the size of the room and how nice it looked. Also for the price, we couldnt have found a better deal anywhere else. The staff were friendly, we also had a few quiet drinks in the bothy which is also nicely decorated & a good place to chill out. We were in a room at the front of the hotel & we didnt have any bother with traffic or anything even though it was on the main road.The only minor fault i would say there was is that the blinds in the bathroom could do with replacing, but other than that cant fault anything about our stay. If we ever go to edinburgh again we would definitely book here.

Just stayed here for one night after booking on late rooms. We booked a luxury superior room and on arrival we were told these rooms were in a separate block two buildings away from the main hotel. My partner and I were not happy and asked if we could be allocated another room in the main hotel block. We were shown 2 rooms both of which were disappointing and we decided to stick to the room we initially booked which I have to say was excellent. We decided to eat at the hotel and ordered drinks which took 20 mins to arrive our food came soon after and was ok. After waiting some time for plates to be taken we tried to order dessert to be told the restaurant had finished serving food. we ordered coffee and after waiting another 30 minutes no staff came back to the part of the restaurant we were eat in so we went into the bar area I told a member of staff we had left the restaurant in search of someone to ask for the bill, he was very apologetic and gave us a discount the service and staff let this place down and lack of staff on hand was frustrating and disappointing.

We had previously visited this hotel in February and were left a little underwhelmed, but after finding a fantastic Itison deal we decided to give it another go.

On our previous visit we were in one of the smaller, more basic rooms and we don't know how these now look post refurbishment. This time we were in one of the 'luxe' rooms in the house as opposed to the hotel and it was fantastic. Amazing room, great facilities and a very comfortable bed. Very impressed with the helpful attitude of the staff both at reception and in the bar & restaurant. We had a couple of drinks in the bar before heading out to the show and they were great as was breakfast the next morning.

They've definitely pulled their socks up since we last visited and we are - without a doubt - intending on returning in the future.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in November to sample the newly refurbished bothy. WAW. What a job they have done. It looks fantastic. I would strongly recommend an "Old Fashioned" cocktail. Be patient though!
The food was fantastic, as was the service. The bar supervisor and his team are a credit.

Look forward to staying again!

As our first experience of the Murrayfield had been so good we decided to rebook for our Christmas shopping trip to Edinburgh. I was a bit apprehensive as I thought that it wouldn't live up to the high standards but boy could I have been so wrong!! The whole Bar and Restaurant has been refurbished to an exceptional standard. There was a new menu for us to try, I had the Shepherds Pie, FANTASTIC, and my still fussy hubby stuck to the Steak, TOP DRAWER!! We ate in the new Bothy bar in a booth, the live music after from Danny and Steve topped off the night perfectly. Staff, as before, were excellent and attentive without being in your face. A thoroughly enjoyable and chilled night after a busy day fighting the crowds Christmas shopping. The room in the house was as good as before. This is now our Edinburgh bolt hole, well done Murrayfield!!!

After visiting this new establishment over the weekend for dinner I felt I must share this review. I have never posted on these type of sites before but felt compelled to sign up.
From the minute we arrived the welcome was top notch no booking but no problem taken to a lovely table, clean and well presented. The "bothy" as I think it's branded was amazing, lovely decor delicious food and the most hospitable staff I have come across in a number on months!!
Can't recommend high enough will be back time and time again, ps have the lamb shank pie it's amazing
