Wedding at the George Hotel in EdinburghWe did visit one more hotel in our seach for a Wedding venue - The George Hotel, in George Street Edinburgh.
We had actually been to the Balmoral Hotel earlier on the same day and decided that this was our Hotel of choice for getting married in, but we had an appointment an hour later for the George Hotel, so went along to this anyway.
The hotel has recently (in 2006) had a £12 million refurbishment, so overall it was a lovely hotel, with modern features, but still retaining it's traditional architecture. The bar area in the lobby was very pleasant and all the public areas of the hotel that we were shown on our tour were very nice.
We started off by looking at a possible room for our ceremony, which was downstairs and had no windows. After just being in the lovely ceremony room in the Balmoral we knew there was no way we would change our mind for this one! Next we were shown a huge room upstairs (I believe it was the King's Hall). This was a beautiful room, but absolutely massive, so would look a bit odd with less than 150 people in it I imagine.
Finally we had a look in a couple of bedrooms, which were modern and spacious.
It's actually hard for me to say much more about this hotel, as we had just been to the Balmoral and decided on it, so I guess I wasn't paying as much attention as I should have been. Overall, I would say this was a great venue if you have enough guests to fill the King's Hall, but if not, then the other rooms are nothing special.
