Attended a wedding 25 August and stayed for one night in an executive room. The hotel is modern and stylish . The food is of a very good standard and the hotel seems to be run efficiently. Amazing views of the Forth Bridge . The room that we stayed in was very smart , spacious and spotlessly clean with a very comfortable super king size bed. The bathroom was large with bath and double walk in shower. Good value for money and if I was in this area again would not hesitate to stay in this hotel again. There is no car park but free parking fairly close by.

Stayed here for a couple of nights as I couldn't get a room in the city during the festival, but was happy i did. Room 15 was a fantastic room, massive bed, luxury bathroom, big TV with DVD player and above all a fantastic view of the bridge.
The staff were great and helped out in sorting a booking mistake and were genuinely helpful. Excellent breakfast all prepared to order. French toast and fresh fruit and cream was a top way to start the day!
The one downside is the terrace from the bar is under the room and people out drinking at 12.30 to 1.00 when the bar shuts makes an early night a challenge.
There is a free car park a few minutes walk away.

Unlike the millions in Edinburgh this weekend we were not here for the festival we were here for my wife to have corrective eye surgery. Having scanned the hotels for weeks, most were full and every one was overpriced, the choices were limited so it was either the airport budget hotels or travel out of town.We were lucky to get the last available room at the Orocco Pier, and were genuinely looking forward to our stay.

We arrived at 3pm and the room was not ready, although this is a little on the late side the description did say checkin 4pm, we descended on the restaurant to fill the time. The place was vey busy and were advised there was a delay in ordering food, we ordered drinks and sat overlooking the magnificent Forth Rail Bridge, when the food arrived it was excellent and both of us enjoyed our order.
We ventured no further that the hotel bar in the evening and again have no complaints, we rounded off our trip with a full Scottish Breakfast, a read of the Sunday papers and of course overlooking the Firth of Forth.

I have read the reviews of others and most of the poor ones seem to be in 2012 and beyond, I can only assume there has been some work done on things because on the whole we could not fault the place.

The photograph is taken from our bedroom withe camera balanced on a coffee cup !

Room Tip: go for the executive rooms and try and get a bridge view

The food was excellent and waiting staff suitably attentive. As for the views - well they would be hard to top anywhere. The only gripe I have is the waitress's repeated use of the word 'guy' when referring to me - as in 'Was everything alright for you guys?' I resisted the temptation to point out that I have two substantial mammary glands attached to my upper body that make it more than clear I belong to the female species! A simple 'Was everything alright for you?' would suffice!

Absolutely wonderful food, beautifully presented and staff are very nice. So delicious I would go again. Gorgeous views over the forth as well. Couldn't fault it! Lamb was succulent and lovely. Couldn't fit a desert in unfortunately

Lovely little rooms, with all you need for a weekend stay. Staff were very polite and helpful. Breakfast was amazing, lots of choice and we even sat outside looking over the water.
Surprisingly quiet, considering the late opening bar downstairs.
Paid £120 per night for double room, but booked last minute (day before) so not to bad at all!
