Portobello Dental Clinic

274 Portobello High St, Edinburgh EH15 2AT, UK – 0131 669 1193

In a parallel universe, where my e-mails were replied to, I should probably have every reason to be satisfied with the Portobello Dental Clinic. Now, there is really nothing difficult or complicated about a request for a copy of the estimate for my dental treatments. ‘Could I please have a summary of the cost estimate for my root canal treatments?’ is a very, very, very straightforward question. Why, even a plain ’No, you cannot’ would at least be an answer — promising twice, when asked, to give me a piece of paper (that is, one sheet of paper) and subsequently forgetting all about it, on the other hand, is not an answer. Only people who have something to hide do that.

As a nervous patient I was not looking forward to my first dentist visit in many years, and as I had recently moved, but was suffering with some pain, I had to quickly search the Internet to find a practice. Luckily this practice was the one that could see me the soonest, and I have to say that I was very happy with my initial, and subsequent visits. The staff are very friendly and the dentist very quickly put me to ease. I have always been very sceptical about Dentists telling you that fillings, etc are needed (££££) when they are not, but this was not the case, and instead the dentist took time to talk me through what I should be doing to prevent the need for any further work. Overall, a very pleasant experience and I have since convinced my partner to go who had similar reservations about the dentist, but have since been singing their praises.

The Baronscourt Surgery

89 Northfield Broadway, Edinburgh EH8 7RX, UK – 0131 657 5444

Just recently moved to the area, and was fairly ominous about registering at the practice after reading alot of reviews but I can honestly say from my first encounter the staff receptionist included were all very polite and extremely helpful. I wanted to make an appointment after registering but was informed it takes two days to be registered. After explaining the situation the receptionist very kindly said she would get me registered so I could make an appointment the following day. The next day my appointment was made without fuss and I was seen by a very professional doctor.

I have been with this surgery all my life, almost 34 years. The original old doctors were amazing but they have now all retired or left. There are a couple of doctors there who are very helpful but like other reviews have said, the receptionists let the place down. They sound aggressive over the phone, answer you back face to face when I was nothing but polite. No need for this. Asking simple questions seem like an inconvenience. I have waited an hour and a half past my appointment time to find the receptionist hadn't marked me as waiting. This has happened twice that i can think of. I don't think I've ever been taken on time. 30 mins plus past your appointment time is normal but don't dare be 1 min late or the aggressive receptionist will have something to say! If the receptionists were as they should be then i would have gave 4 stars but i have instead given a generous 3 stars

Milton Surgery

132 Mountcastle Dr S, Edinburgh EH15 3LL, UK – 0131 549 7300

Excellent practice. In my experience the doctors show a genuine personal interest in patients. Caring nurses and very pleasant staff.

I can honestly say the treatment I have had from the Dr's in this surgery as been the best.All the staff from the receptionists, the nurses and the community nurses has been 10 out 10, I have had a few medical issues from 2012 which included a few hospital admissions, dressings ect with the nurse and for the last few years the district nurses. .At one point I was housebound for quite a while. With the support of my Dr and the district nurses I am getting out with family and friends again , my health is better and I can't express enough the outstanding care I have had. I have to say a special thanks to Dr Cameron and the district nurses . I would not be where I am today without them

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Royal Infirmary Edinburgh

51 Little France Cres, Edinburgh EH16 4SA, UK – 0131 536 1000

Have to praise the staff at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. From the moment mum was taken in on Monday, the care and attention she received was outstanding. Particularly the nurses of base 4 in the Acute Medical unit. Those girls were awesome. They made a difficult week much easier to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The whole family was looked after and mum got the best care possible. Words cannot express how grateful we are xx ❤

Couldn't be more happier with the care i received from the Royal this morning. I had a check up to see if everything was okay and Cathy one of the student nurses was so helpful and very efficient. Very friendly. All the best with your future. Xx

We received an unbelievably wonderful service from everyone at the simpsons, especially in the neo natal unit. We'll never be able to thank everyone there enough.

Absolutely fantastic care from all the midwives at Simpson. They couldn't have been more kind and caring at a difficult time for our family. We'll never forget it.

Household Waste Recycling Centre

Fillyside Rd, Edinburgh EH7 6RD, UK – 0131 529 3030

I have always found most of the staff here very helpful. However, I tried to phone direct about something and was sent to a general council number and put on one of the council's interminable loops of numbers to press - none of which were relevant to my query. A direct number and a person to speak to would be far more useful.

Helpful staff! Nice layout. Very quick

Nice clean restaurant, good food, offers really good. We had 2 mains for £10.00. Staff really friendly and helpful. We visit on a regular basis as we love the atmosphere in this restaurant.

We went for my sisters birthday lunch the first guy we were greeted by seemed a bit grumpy however the next guy who we think was the manager was great and very friendly and happy. The waitress was great too. First time here but will definitely be back great job!!!

Beefeater The Lady Nairne

Staff are very friendly and the bar area is a clean and comfortable place to have a drink

Always liked the Ladynairn but on the last couple of visits there were a lot of things not available on the menu (very early in the evening). I chose the Caeser Salad which had a good portion of chicken but the lettuce was warm and the only other thing in the dish was croutons. Dont think I will be ordering it again!

Not a huge fan of chain restaurants, but with voucher cloud offering 30% off, it's OK for a quick bite.

Kids Grilled Chicken Skewers would just like to say that my 2 children who had these have been sick all night and day from these as my other child who had the cod bites is fine was a really good meal very very nice staff and place but needed to tell you about my kids experience from eating the Grilled Chicken Skewers
