Marco Pierre White’s concept is for his restaurants not to be stuffy and pretentious. His phrase is affordable glamour and he wants people to enjoying their evening, with excellent food and drink in luxurious, relaxed surroundings with music toned down. There was something to suit every taste and budget on the extensive menu and our attentive and knowledgeable waiting staff (Claire from Edinburgh and Karolina from Poland) greatly enhanced the overall experience. First impressions are important and the imposing facade of the iconic Hilton Carlton Highland Hotel, which was once one of Edinburgh’s leading department stores, dates back to the 1900s. It has, thankfully, remained intact but stepping inside reveals a contemporary, bright, spacious and stylish modern hotel ideally suited to 21st-century living. The 211-room hotel forms part of the link between Edinburgh’s historic Old and New Town and is perfectly placed in the heart of the bustling city, nearby rail, tram and bus links. The subtle design and use of colour – with white a crucial element - is impressive and the staircase leading diners to Marco Pierre White’s Steakhouse Bar & Grill on the first floor is an eye-catching dominant feature. Strolling through the spacious Nineteen Hundred Lounge, which houses the extensive bar area, towards the restaurant, one is immersed in an overall feeling of style. The menu has been exclusively curated by internationally-renowned, celebrity chef Marco Pierre White and includes Mr White’s classic French onion soup (Gruyere and croutons), beetroot and goats cheese salad with candied walnuts and Merlot dressing. He has included a pleasing mix of childhood favourites, like Mr Lamb’s shepherd’s pie and The Governor’s fried haddock and triple-cooked chips and mushy peas, with modern day delicacies. Steak is at the heart of the menu and the meat is sourced locally from a Royal Warrant appointed butcher. Alongside classic cuts including fillet, rib-eye and Chateaubriand, the 32oz T-bone cuts for two special is a sharing option. The Great American cheese and bacon burger sits alongside barbeque smoked babyback ribs. A range of vegetarian dishes is available including mushroom tartlets with poached eggs and a vegetarian sharer which includes baked camembert, roasted vine tomatoes, olives à la Provençal, Glamorgan sausages, baked sourdough, vintage balsamic and olive oil. Pam could not resist Welsh rarebit with a poached egg and the addition of mustard set this apart. My salt and pepper calamari with delicately-chopped chilli and spring onion scattered on the plate plus lemon mayonnaise dip was perfectly cooked allowing each flavour to make its mark. Pam then plumped for a classic chicken Kiev for main. It was visually impressive and arrived with triple-cooked chips with just the right amount of seasoning. Her knife sliced through the breadcrumb coating into a succulent breast with garlic butter. It comes with pommes frites, roast vine tomatoes and buttered peas. My market fish of the day (cod) was lovingly presented on a bed of spinach and sauteed potatoes with asparagus tips with a pleasing bite. We sidestepped a tempting Tiramisu and other delights including the trio of desserts for two (warm chocolate brownie, cheesecake and banana and caramel mess). Instead, we shared Mr Coulson’s sticky toffee pudding with a divine butterscotch sauce poured over the vanilla ice cream. Absolutely delicious. Collapse
Not getting off on the right foot...a disappointing start

Just arrived from over seas...made it to the hotel at 1130a. During check-in mentioned to the young lady at the desk that we were coming from overseas and that I had been up for 36 hour and if the room could be made available early. She checked a room was available but it wasn't cleaned yet. She said she would ask them to put a rush on it and took my cell to contact me when it was ready. I waited several hours and finally went back to the front desk where another person (more senior) waited on me...she was rude, explained it wasn't ready and I highlighted it had been available for 2.5 hours for cleaning and if should could check on it...she explained check out was only at noon (like I didn't know that, the room was available at 1130a) and I would likely have to wait until 3p... So at 305p we got our room...only 3.5 hours later and when essentially every room should be available... It's a beautiful hotel and I'm here for 9 more days...hopefully the rest of my stay isn't of the same caliber... Bob Collapse

A group of friends and I stayed at the Hilton. Great location and walking distance to most attractions. Rooms were well appointed and very comfortable. Customer service was excellent. I should state that Molly, front desk, was not very friendly and should have customer service training. However, eveyone else was awesome. Would stay again. Thanks for being so accommodating to me and my friends. We enjoyed our stay. Collapse

I stayed with my wife on a Saturday night on points. Room 249 was clean and had a decent bathroom. Checking was uneventful but reasonably efficient. Bedroom window was filthy on the outside as if they couldn't get to it to clean it. The music from the live band was very loud and whilst we didn't mind, it would have been good to have been warned as it didn't finish until midnight and it made the room bounce. I also had to ask twice for the complimentary water that should have been in the room. Nothing major here but the overall feeling was that the management just want to get their hands on the big money from weddings and are not bothered about the small fry. Collapse
