Royal Terrace Hotel has one thing that has so far tainted every other place we’ve been too, Blythe. She’s the lady who’d be looking after our wedding for us and we really liked her. She was lovely, open to any suggestions – even bangers and mash for the wedding meal – and was extra accommodating. We could do anything we wanted and she could organise it, or we could do it jointly, anything at all.
Don’t panic parents, the bangers and mash was just a joke. Although there might be something of that ilk at the buffet!
What is also going for the Hotel is that it has some superb gardens out the back, just like Edinburgh town gardens, which are all joined together in one. They’ve even had a Bedouin tent out there for the wedding meal. There are some great spots for photos too.
The suite we could have for our wedding night has a centre bathroom, it’s all glass with blinds obviously, and it does look wonderful. So the evening stay would be great.
However, and there is a however, it’s a hotel and nothing spectacular in the other rooms we’d be using. It’s also very near the centre of Edinburgh and that brings with it pros and cons.
It’s very handy to get to and from, but then it doesn’t have that feeling of being somewhere away from home.
This one is a difficult one because it does have so many great things going for it, and the things that aren’t so great aren’t really deal breakers. It is a lovely location and a lovely hotel, and what I keep coming back to is the excellent wedding coordinator we would have.
More venues to come.
