The Staff don't speak a word of English. I wouldn't serve the food to my dog it's that crap. The beds are so uncomfortable and the pillows are to thick so you wake up with neck ache if you manage to sleep. The only upside is the hotel as clean and you have access to the leisure facilities

We held our family New Year's Day meal at the Capital Hotel - as we have done for a number of years. Each year it gets better, and the staff excelled themselves this year. A sign of it getting even better than the good of previous years was that the Dining Room was very busy - word must be getting...

We got there and the deluxe room wasn't booked so got placed there for no extra cost. Rooms were gorgeous & lots of space. Bathroom was very modern and we drove down Edinburgh and it's right near the zoo ( 10 min walk) & 10 minute drive to city centre. Fab X

We arrived late and the staff was very nice and helpful! The room was very clean, space and comfortable. Exactly what we needed after a very tiring day. They even gave us a bucket full of ice for our warm beers! The location is not the best but definitely a great hotel!

As on previous visits, we were booked straight into our room and baggage carried by the kind staff. The first thing on our agenda was a lovely dinner which provided a wonderful first and comfortable night during the harsh December weather. Bedding was just fantastic; puffy pillows, fresh quilts and most importantly: warm! The room was cleaned each and every...

Staff were friendly and the rooms were ok, found a big clump of hair next to bin and found a dirty sock in the sheets.... anyway the hotel Is in a bit of an awkward area about 20 min bus journey to Edinburgh town centre! We enjoyed are stay here but wouldn't stay again.
