Why did you choose Gilmerton House for your event?
“It was the most suitable venue in the Edinburgh region for the size of group we were planning for, as approx. More than 80 guests were expected. Other venues were either too large or too small, or didn’t seem to have the setting we were looking for.
“Gilmerton House was the first choice after our internet research and stayed in this position after having seen it and quite a few other locations. The Gilmerton team were very efficient and competent. Our guests all loved the venue and entertainment.”
How would you describe Gilmerton’s ambience?
“Superb – the open fires in the downstairs room made you feel very welcome – like arriving at a friend’s house. A really warm welcome.”
