Wedding at the Apex International Hotel EdinburghToday we went to have a look at the Apex International Hotel in the Grassmarket in Edinburgh.
This hotel is a modern 4* hotel in the centre of the Grassmarket with views of Edinburgh castle.
The Heights restaurant in the hotel is used for the Wedding Breakfast and this is a good sized room with wonderful views through big glass windows on to Edinburgh Castle. This is a restaurant at night so can only be used for a Wedding Breakfast in the afternoon/early evening. The menu selector was one of the most extensive I have seen with lots of choices for the starters, main courses and desserts at very reasonable prices.
The room for the evening reception was a good size, but quite dark with no windows, but you have the alternative of having your evening reception down the stairs in what is normally the Metro Brasserie, with use of the lobby bar.
We also had a quick look at the bedrooms and these were modern and nice enough but nothing special.
Overall we thought this was a very nice venue but I wasn't that keen on the location - right in the middle of the Grassmarket on a Saturday night could be pretty noisy. We didn't like the evening reception venue without the windows as much as other places we'd seen and felt that the alternative of having the evening reception downstairs was nice, but probably too big for our numbers.
So, the favourite so far is still the Radisson.
