“Very Friendly”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

Stayed here for a night whilst in Edinburgh to see the Lion King at the Playhouse. We found all the staff to be very friendly and informative as to where places were and how to get to them. The room we were given, 206, was large and well equipped with plenty of tea and coffee available in the room. Breakfast offered a good choice and service was good but a minor complaint for us was the music being played throughout breakfast at a volume which was not acceptable.
There is a very good and frequent bus service from just outside the front door into Prices Street.

Had a wonderful lunch with my pardner and her father. Extensive menu, I had gammon steak with home cut chips and veg, well presented and cooked to perfection, my pardners father had cottage pie, came in a metal dish, perfect as he was recovering from two recent strokes, my pardner had a salad and was more than happy with this choice. The restaurant has recently been refurbished, the place looks very impressive. Will return again as It was very relaxed but professional in its delivery.

Our long weekend in Edinburgh was made all the more enjoyable as a result of our stay in 'the house'. Our room was top notch complete with contemporary four poster and rainfall shower. Great breakfast too! The staff at the Murrayfield were extremely attentive and the team should be praised for their excellent service and attention to detail. The Murrayfield is within walking distance of Edinburgh Zoo (a birthday treat to see the Pandas). If you want to explore other popular attractions like The Castle, Calton Hill, the Botanical Gardens etc then just hop on a bus. A frequent bus service ensures that you are only 20 minutes away from the main attractions.

Room Tip: I would recommend that at the time of booking specify that you would like a room in the main house.

We enjoyed the most superb afternoon tea today in The Bothy. There were only the two of us but there was enough for four people - 8 sandwiches, 4 cream scones and 8 cakes - so we were given a 'goodie bag' to take home. From the minute we arrived were impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the lovely decor. We shall certainly make a return visit to sample their lunch menu.......can't wait!

Really happy with this hotel. Breakfast was great, & the bar was great in the evenings. If i was going to be really picky i would say the rooms could be a tad larger, and it is a bit of a trek into the city centre - however buses are cheap & regular.
Overall really happy with our stay here.

The Murrayfield Hotel was a pleasant surprise for my self and a friend to stay Hogmany and New Years day for £140 each bnb. Although the hotel ground floor is stunning and very modern the bedrooms could do with being updated. Although comfortable bed and clean room was and always is my priority.

Speedy and polite staff both at reception, bar and breakfast and couldn't fault there attitude, The breakfast to a high standard with cheeses, hams and pastries as well as a full Scottish breakfast.I also, stupidly, left my house keys in the room when I checked out and after ringing them they were posted out to my and received within two days. I would stay at the hotel again and would really like to go to bistro for a meal as we had pre arranged plans.

As said the room isn't anything special and does look a bit tired but everything else including housekeeping standards are fantastic and great value for money.

We were invited to the Hogmanay Party to bring in the New Year. After a recent refurbishment this was a complimentary evening, however it was done very well, there was a piper who piped in the New Year at 'The Bells', and a disco playing great tunes all evening. Not overly advertised, there was no crush, and service was very good. There was a very friendly atmosphere and we had a great evening.

The Bothy Restaurant was also open, and this provided a slightly more relaxed and calm version of the party next door. Great music, and great service, dancing beside the bar if desired, and altogether a very good night.

At weekends the Bothy usually hosts a live band who play a variety of tunes live, and the band 10.04's have two members who occasionaly play here. We have attended some fabulous nights at the Bothy, with this pair really getting the whole bar going with their interpretation of some great tunes, classic and modern.

The Bar Staff (Gents) and waiting Staff, Maureen and Kirsty are very kind and professional, and deserve a mention for their hard work and dedication to the smooth running of this venue.

We have eaten at the Bothy in the evening, and had lunch there too, and the food is very nice, the service very attentive and friendly. Kirstly again going the extra mile to be helpful, and Maureen very welcoming and attentive.

We did not stay at the hotel, so therefore I cannot review. However the ease of obtaining a taxi outside this hotel is fantastic as you get all the taxi's coming back into town so frequently that you never wait more than two or three minutes, and it is only five mins drive to the city centre.

We had a cracking new year here at the Murrayfield and guests like you helped us do so, many have commented on the two different areas and how they enjoyed going from "the party" to the more relaxed bothy.

I hope to see you again before this new year.

Have a great 2014
