Hotel Overview


On the Royal Mile, a five-minute walk from Edinburgh Castle.

Rooms at G&V Royal Mile Hotel

The 136 rooms and suites have retro kitsch lighting, bold colours and playful patterns, alongside sleek luxury bathrooms and stunning views of the historic capital. The George Suite is a showcase for extravagant life in the city with exquisite fabrics, brilliant artworks and, as it’s at the very top of the hotel, a picturesque vista across the city, over Arthur’s Seat and towards the Firth of Forth.

Food and facilities

With a menu of slow-cooked lemon chilli chicken and pork fillet in “sarmoriglio”, the award-winning restaurant, Cucina, is an effortless conjunction of Italian and Caledonian influences, fusing Scottish sustenance with Italian craftsmanship. From early morning lattes to late night cocktails, there’s no need to travel far with the trendy Bar G&V on the ground floor. Try the Victoria’s Secret cocktail, a sultry little number that combines Scottish gin with almond Grappa, house vanilla syrup and rhubarb bitters to produce a robust citrusy concoction.

Activities at G&V Royal Mile Hotel

Once you have tested the hotel’s dynamic gym and relaxation spa, venture out and balance retail with culture by leisurely walking through Edinburgh’s cobbled streets towards the castle and the vibrant shopping district.
