Wedding at the Marriot EdinburghWe had never really considered the Marriott Edinburgh Hotel as a possible wedding venue, as every time I've driven past the hotel it has never really appealed to me with its grey exterior and close proximity to busy roads. However, I thought it was worth a look after speaking to one of the managers of the hotel at the Wedding Fair as the photos of the ceremony and reception room looked nice.
We were actually very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Despite the not so great location and exterior it was very attractive inside. The public bar/reception area was spacious and tastefully decorated and there was even a nice decked area outside at the back of the hotel. They also had a really good private bar area for the drinks reception. The ceremony rooms were all just standard meeting rooms, but had windows, seemed reasonably modern and the photos of these rooms when they were done out for a ceremony made the room look lovely.
The area for the reception and wedding breakfast was also very nice - more modern and nicer than the function room at the Radisson Hotel.
The bedrooms in the hotel were also well decorated and a good size and the wedding advisor that showed us round that day seemed very professional and experienced.
Overall we liked this hotel, but were put off a little by the location and preferred the Radisson Hotel in the Royal Mile to the Marriott Edinburgh.
