Outstanding customer service
We booked the Royal College of Surgeons for our wedding earlier this year. Unfortunately, our celebration wasn’t able to go ahead as planned. However, we had such a fantastic experience with the venue in the lead up that I had to write a review!Sent on 22/07/2020
Throughout the process, everyone we met was incredibly friendly, professional and helpful. We were amazed by everything that was included in the package, by far the best we came across in Edinburgh and real value for money. Another thing that stood out for us is that the profits go back into the College, which speaks to the whole ethos of it as a venue.
We had the most wonderful menu tasting (honestly, a real highlight of the year - we’re still talking about it!) and were able to tour the beautiful reception rooms a couple of times. The staff made us feel so special and we were blown away by the quality of food and service. Fiona and Sandra, our event coordinators, were always on hand to answer any questions and went above and beyond for us.
We could not recommend this venue enough and are heartbroken that our plans had to change. We feel certain that we and our guests would have had the most special day celebrating there.

Made Us Feel Very Well Taken Care Of
We cannot thank Valts enough - he did an absolutely fantastic job planning the event and putting everything together for us. We are based in Australia, and so apart from a visit to Scotland in October and a couple of phone calls everything had to be done by email. Valts was extremely efficient and we never had to wait more than a couple of days for a detailed response to our queries. He was extremely professional throughout and made us feel very well taken care of.Sent on 19/07/2019
The venue was absolutely beautiful, and several of our guests said how much they enjoyed it too. It was a really good idea to have the Ceremony / Meal, Drinks Reception and Evening Reception in different rooms as it allowed our guests to circulate around and have a change of scene every couple of hours. The decoration in the Fellows Library and Playfair Hall was great - we did not have any flowers or anything on the tables, and we didn't miss having them at all because the rooms were so lovely anyway! The Wolfson Hall was a great venue for the evening dancing, particularly the ceilidh, as it was more spacious.
We loved the food, and again we had several compliments from guests. All the serving staff were very friendly and attentive.
We had the absolute best time and honestly cannot think of anything we would change.

Dear Valts,Sent on 15/07/2019
I have filled in the survey but both Amalia and I wanted to express our thanks in a separate email to you and the whole team.
From the moment we agreed the venue and date, you and your team provided fabulous support, which was always positive and friendly with a sense that nothing was too much.
The day was wonderful, with everything as we had hoped and planned and all delivered by smiling, positive, supportive and encouraging staff
The day and indeed the planning could have been fraught with anxiety, but we were filled with absolute confidence during the 9 months of planning that the day would go as we had planned. Indeed it did.
All the guests commented on the venue and the excellence of the delivery of the wedding plan. Our favourite and indeed the best word used to describe the day by many guests was 'exquisite'. We agree, it was!
Thank you an unforgettable day.
Carl and Amalia
