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.

We had a superb wedding experience at the Intercontinental Edinburgh Hotel, in spite of the additional complexities of Covid-19. The organisation and planning of the wedding was seamless and the Events team super helpful. We felt at ease and in great hands throughout the run up to the wedding. Our wedding day was a magical occasion. The venue looked wonderful and the staff could not have been more attentive. All of our guests had a special time and particularly loved the food. We’re extremely pleased that we chose The George for our Big Day and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it to others looking to create an extra-special occasion.

Stepping into the Grand Hall at the Intercontinental the George Edinburgh for the first time confirmed our search for a wedding venue was complete! Even without any wedding decor, there in its simplicity it was stunning! Working with Lauren, planning and organising our day was easy and enjoyable and nothing was too much to ask. That attentative and caring nature spread across the whole staff and we generally just felt welcomed on every visit and onto the big day itself! All the staff really went above and beyond for us and made our guests feel relaxed and special. As for the food, what can I say, from our first bite on our menu tasting to the last on the wedding day itself, not only did it look fantastic but tasted delicious too. Overall, a fantastic venue and we couldn't have imagined being married anywhere else. We hope to be back to celebrate our 1st Anniversary next year.

We honestly cannot thank Lauren, Gemma and the rest of the team at the hotel for everything they done to make sure we had the most perfect day. From start to finish, we couldn’t have asked for more. The continuous support, communication, suggestions and excitement shared from all! Everything was honestly perfect and we wouldn’t change a thing. The team really made our dream wedding a reality. Any questions were answered to the full, any personal requests were fulfilled, nothing was a problem or too difficult to provide. We really are so grateful and thankful and would recommend the hotel for anyone thinking of having their wedding or function. We just wish we could do it all over again!

Let me just start by saying, you guys smashed it out of the park. We couldn't have asked for anything more. From how personal the service was leading up to it to everything going perfectly on the day I literally have nothing but praise for Lauren and Gemma and the rest of the team. You guys made us feel so comfortable through the pain that was reorganising this wedding 2x through the pandemic. Everyone we've spoken to has nothing but praise for the beautiful venue, the food, the staff, and we have only you guys to thank for that. I know I said it already but thanks again for literally the best day of our lives.

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.
