The wedding went brilliantly, there honestly was nothing negative to say about it. All the staff were amazing food was perfect would not hesitate to recommend this as a wedding venue to anyone. The setting was lovely just the right size and also great that some guests could go and sit in the quieter area. The thing that nearly everyone commented on was how attentive hardworking and efficient the staff were. The breakfast the following morning was also excellent and the perfect end to our stay.

Everything was perfect! From all the help we received from Fiona when booking and organising through to checking out the day after, we really couldn't fault it. The arrangements were all straight forward which really put us at ease. So many of our guests came to stay for the whole weekend and have all complemented the staff and the food. The hotel was beautifully decorated and The Cardoon suite was stunning. The staff took care of every detail on the day, always friendly, helpful and Thomas was fantastic. Our meal was excellent, absolutely delicious and there were lots of happy children. The DJ that came with the package was great, everyone enjoyed the playlist. We had the most wonderful day ...

Gosh where to start! Literally the best experience from start to finish. The staff at the hotel could not have been more accommodating from arranging the rooms to suit our needs to bringing things we needed to the room to help us get ready for the wedding. We had a fantastic 3-course meal and plenty of Prosseco the night before the wedding. Fiona our coordinator was just lovely and every meeting and phone call was a pleasure, nothing was ever too much hassle. We were helped into our cars and greeted and complimented by the events staff and Ian the duty manager which gave us an extra boost of confidence. On our return from our ceremony at the castle, we ... Read more

We had the most amazing Wedding day at The Bruntsfield Hotel, Edinburgh. Fiona, Ian, Thomas and the team made sure every detail was exactly as we had planned it. Such a gorgeous setting in the conservatory for our ceremony and the Cardoon Suite, everything in one place. The food was fantastic, we are receiving compliments from all our guests. Everyone was so organised. Thomas was a huge help to my husband Colin as there were sentimental touches we wanted and he went beyond the call of duty to ensure everything was right. All the staff were lovely and friendly. We would highly recommend it for your special day! Veronica & Colin Miller

We had a very special day made all the more special by The Bruntsfield Hotel. The attention to detail on the small things is very important and you carried them out flawlessly. The staff without exception were professional, helpful and friendly, all our guests had the most amazing day as we did too. We took the feedback from our wedding guests seriously and they all agreed with us that the setting, meal, and friendly personal venue were all a major factor in making our special day a success! The wedding suite was beautiful, large spacious room and very clean and comfortable. The glorious weather was the icing on the cake and being able to enjoy the rear garden area was ... Read more

I want to say a massive thank you firstly to yourself, you have been amazing throughout the whole process of planning the wedding. You were absolutely amazing and put my mind at ease on so many occasions!

We had a wonderful experience with the team at the Bruntsfield Hotel. We were supported by friendly and helpful staff from the day we booked the venue until the big day itself. The staff were flexible and happy to work with the vision that we had for the wedding. On the day we didn't have to worry about a thing; the staff made sure that everything ran smoothly and there was never a moment when I felt like I didn't know what was going on. The food was excellent and I don't think I've ever had such a hearty meal at a wedding before. Several of our guests had food requirements which were catered for without any problems. My mother ...

So our big day was 17/12/17 and what a day it was... We visited the bruntsfield in July & set the date there & then, it was perfect... only 5 months to plan everything... From the day we booked to the end, the wedding coordinator, Fiona Brown, has been fantastic, she is helpful & approachable and replies to all correspondence... I had complete faith in her from the start. On the day I was met by Ian, the duty manager who from that moment, him & his team ran after us to ensure everything ran smoothly... cannot praise them enough. the hotel looked absolutely beautiful & all my instructions were met to the finest detail. I literally just had to ... Read more

We had a family reception in the Cardoon Suite to welcome my son and his wife who were married abroad a few weeks previously. It was easy to set up, with Fiona being friendly and flexible in tailoring arrangements to our needs .We also had harpist Sarah Macneil who played beautifully and added a touch of refinement to proceedings before it was time for the disco to start On the evening itself, the suite looked lovely - beautifully decorated with white tablecloths and elegant furnishings. The evening ran smoothly, and we lost count of the number of guests who remarked positively on the atmosphere and facilities. The bar staff looked after us well and couldn't have been more helpful, with ... Read more

We got married on October 21st 2017 at Bruntsfield Edinburgh. We only had 10 weeks to organise the wedding as we decided not to waste time once we had decided to tie the knot! When we first arrived to meet Fiona, who was the wedding organiser she put us at ease and talked us through all the wedding plans, nothing was to much trouble. When we arrived at the hotel for the wedding weekend all the staff made ourselves and family feel relaxed and welcome. The whole day was fantastic and exceeded our expectations. All our family and friends said it was the best wedding venue they had ever been to , so I think that sums it up!
by Gerard Murray on Fri, 28th July, 2017
My partner and myself had our wedding reception at the Bruntsfield Hotel on 1st July 2017. Also, most of our families & friends stayed for 3 nights. The standard of service, helpfulness and friendliness of staff, and quality of food was outstanding. It went way beyond our expectations. The venue offers a lovely balance of professionalism and subtle homeliness.Our wedding package also included a DJ and disco which was fantastic. The overall feedback from our guests for our choice of venue was 1st class.

We had our wedding here on 03/10/15. It was perfect. Fiona Brown (Events Organiser) was exceptional, very professional and friendly, nothing seemed to be a bother to her. She helped us with every aspect of the wedding and made everything so easy. The Manager on the day was Thomas - he worked so hard to make sure we were looked after and that everything went as smoothly as possible. A huge thank you to them both and all the staff for making our day so special. The wedding - I stayed the night before with my mum and we were both treated like royality.

Hello Myself and my husband (!) used The Best Western Bruntsfield , Edinburgh to host our wedding reception back in September. From the moment we contacted Fiona at the venue to enquire and view nothing was to much trouble. As point of contact communication was quick and helpful and every question along the way was answered. The entire team could not have been better and our every need was catered to both on the run up and on the day, thank you to Tomas who gave us a much needed glass of fizz and ten minutes to ourselves to take it all in. We were made to feel special as were our guests and the staff genuinely went out of ... Read more

I couldn't think of anywhere else I would have rather had our reception. All members of staff were attentive and available to assist with any matter, no matter how small or trivial. We had seventy persons at our wedding, the food was delicious and there was no waiting time. We were even able to have a small drinks reception in the Lounge which our guests appreciated as it was quite a chilly day! Overall, I would recommend the Bruntsfield Hotel as somewhere you can guarantee to have a beautiful and well managed reception. There was literally no stress imposed upon us from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Five stars.

We couldn't be happier with our experience at the Bruntsfield Hotel on 15th November 2014. From our first viewing to the day of the reception, everything went smoothly and the staff were very friendly and professional throughout. We were having an evening reception for 90 guests after being married abroad, the Cardoon suite was perfect for our needs. The bonus of having its own entrance separate to the hotel, which allowed wheelchair acces, a full bar in the room, a good sized dance floor and a quieter area to the back in the conservatory ticked all the boxes for us. The venue also recommended the DJ and the booking was in the overall price paid to the hotel, which helped ... Read more

We arranged our wedding reception at the Bruntsfield Hotel with their events management staff and we were very impressed with their efficiency and professionalism. The day itself was splendid and the staff did their best to make us feel very welcome on the day. In particular, the attention given to ensuring that guests needs were adequately met was most appreciated. Everything else about the day was meticulously planned and flawlessly executed, from the delicious hot meal to the assistance by the duty manager with arranging guests for the photography. Particular mention must be made of the salmon served as the main course, which was complemented by many guests on the day. In addition, the hotel staff coordinated with their recommended ...

Having stayed at The Bruntsfield several times before, we have always been so taken with the friendliness of all the staff and the excellent quality of service. We therefore knew, when we decided to get married, that The Bruntsfield would be the perfect location. We were not disappointed! We were guided through every stage of the preparations by Fiona Brown, who has always been most helpful and attentive. The wedding itself was on 16/02/14, and everything about the day was wonderful. There were just over 40 of us in total so our ceremony was in the Cardoon Conservatory and our reception in the adjoining suite. The conservatory was a lovely, light and intimate setting for the ceremony, looking out onto ... Read more

We had our wedding on the 22/3/14 and our experience was simply amazing - the staff , the location , the food, the wine , the disco and the general organisation of the whole thing. Since then we have had countless messages from guests saying it was the best wedding THEY had ever been too, certainly it was the best day of our lives. We had 70 day guests and 120 in total in the evening. The evening before we were able to check the function room for layout etc and all was as we had asked . The room looked superb and was absolutely transformed into a classy wedding reception room. Many of our guests checked in the evening ... Read more
