Full Description
InterContinental Edinburgh The George has been welcoming hotel guests since 1881. At its heart are five listed Georgian townhouses, built in 1775 as homes for Edinburgh’s most prosperous citizens. Presented with the Gold Laurel Award, City Hotel of the Year and Scottish Hotel of the Year at the 2017 Scottish Hotel Awards, the hotel’s interiors combine luxurious natural materials such as oak, marble and leather with a palette of colours inspired by the great 19th-century Scottish landscape painters. A nod to Edinburgh’s rich literary heritage, The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen was once home to acclaimed novelist Susan Ferrier (an equal of Jane Austen, according to Sir Walter Scott). Records from the late 1840’s also show one John Oliphant living here—and Oliphant’s and Ferrier’s descendants founded one of Scotland’s most prestigious publishing houses in history. At InterContinental Edinburgh The George spectacular 18th century architecture and stunning details come together to set the stage for a beautiful wedding day.

My wife and I had our wedding here last week and we definitely had the best day of our lives!!! This was all thanks to Oskar and his team at the hotel!! He has been amazing this whole year when we have been planning our special day and on the day Oskar and Kamile were amazing at keeping us both calm and making sure we didn't see each other on the run up to the ceremony. We felt like nothing at all was a bother to any of the staff and even when my little nephew fell and hurt his mouth the day before they came to the room to check on him and the concierge service was amazing too. The little touches in the room for the children was amazing and my 4 year old niece was so happy with her little toys. The breakfast in the hotel was really lovely and we had our own private room for our guests the day after which was amazing. All our guests have and still are commenting on how great the day was and how beautiful the hotel is. We would very highly recommend this venue to anyone getting married in the future and Oskar as a wedding coordinator. Thanks again to you all for making our day extra special we really appreciate everything.

We would like to thank you most sincerely for the wonderful reception you organised for Georgina & Ken at the Principal. We were delighted with every part, from the very beginning to the next day when we collected all our accessories from the Dundas room. The food was delicious, the service exceptional and it all seemed to go like clockwork. Please thank the concierge, Piper and all the staff who were so polite and efficient. We had the most fantastic day as did Georgina & Ken.

We were very impressed by the efforts of you and your team both in the run up to our wedding and on the day itself! We could not fault any team member. The impressive dinner service in particular was commented upon by our guests. I also appreciated the regular updates provided by staff throughout the day. Please pass my thanks to the two heads of staff and the master of ceremony. I want to thank you for all of your hard work on the run up to our wedding and on the day itself. As I mentioned to you on Saturday, I appreciated your prompt reply to all emails and the general feeling that ours was the only wedding you were involved in organising (when I know you have many to organise!)

Our whole experience from you and your team, from the initial booking, until we checked out on the Sunday morning was superb. Throughout the planning and on the day we felt well looked after by everyone we came across and their patience, assistance and courtesy throughout was well received. We particularly appreciated being notified when individuals were finishing their shift and handing over as it clearly identified to us who to speak to should we have any issues. During the tasting day we felt well looked after and your attention to detail during the final planning meeting the week before assured our confidence that the day would run smoothly and prompted us to think of things we simply hadn’t. The night before and on the day it was clear that everyone (from doormen to managers) knew what to do and their aim was to ensure our day was as stress free as possible. All our guests commented on the quality of the food and the venue. Everyone was impressed with the service and I heard only compliments about the food, please pass on my regards to the kitchen team and the table staff. Sarah and I would like to express our thanks again for you and your team’s efforts in providing such a memorable day for us and would kindly ask you to pass it on to everyone that was involved.

The team at the Principal Edinburgh George Street were absolutely amazing. If I'm honest I wasn't too sure what to expect on the lead up but everyone has been so accommodating. You have been amazing at keeping everything under control and organised. The service at dinner was spectacular and on point. Each member of staff that I had the pleasure of dealing with was so welcoming and courteous. I would particularly like to thank yourself and George for making this a stress free day. You are both a treasure to the hotel. You have always been quick to reply on the lead up. Your communication has been great. There were no issues whatsoever! And your organisational skills were brilliant. Even when we were running late you made everything smooth. Every time I spoke to George throughout the evening he was calm and collected and just fabulous. There was so much going on and so the pressure was on and George held it down like a pro!!! You are both amazing gentlemen. The food was amazing and so thanks to the Chef for that. Christos was also amazing as well as Ansten who helped is out with our luggage. The overall customer service was fantastic and I would not have chosen another venue. It was perfect!!!! Thank you all so much for making our day special, stress free and above all thank you for your great service and making us feel welcome. I had never came across such great customer service before!! And such an amazing kind people!!!

Where do we start? We had the most fantastic, amazing, magical day we cannot thank Oskar and the staff enough. It went perfectly and the service was second to none. No wonder you win awards every guest at the wedding said it was the best wedding they have ever been too and they have been to a good few weddings between them all. I wish we could do it all over again I will be shouting from the roof tops on recommendations to anyone I know getting married in the future. From the second we booked the wedding through Hana who provided first class service to then be taken over by Oskar when Hana went on maternity leave. Everything was in great hands and all taken care off without any confusion with our new wedding co-ordinator. Nothing was too much trouble and I truly believe we would never have had a day like I did on Saturday 20th May if I had our wedding anywhere else. We will certainly be back on anniversaries the Principal Hotel will always be very special to us.
