Wedding at the Glasshouse Hotel Edinburgh

The first place we went for a "wedding show round" (as they call them) was the
Glasshouse Hotel in Edinburgh.

This hotel is right in the centre of Edinburgh between the Playhouse and the Omnicentre and just a few minutes walk from Princes street.

It's quite a new hotel, with a listed building front, which is quite small, so the size of the hotel is deceiving and it is actually much bigger than you think it is.

The reception area was very modern and clean, although I can imagine that in a few years time it will look a bit dated.

The hotel has a big roof garden with views of Calton hill and it's possible to actually have your wedding ceremony outside (if the Scottish weather holds up).

The room that they use for the ceremony and the reception only holds around 60 or so people and personally I found it pretty small and holding a reception for 60 people would be quite claustrophobic in my opinion. There is also a Marquee which holds over 100 people, but I didn't really like this, especially as they were charging 1500 for the pleasure of using it.

The hotel rooms and suites were very nice. Half of them overlook the city and the other half overlook the roof garden.

In my opinion this is a great hotel for a weekend break in Edinburgh, but not for a wedding. However, if you want to get married outside, or have a reception inside for a smaller number of people then it may suit you.
