Excellent service from pulling up outside the hotel to check in to and fast check out. Room was spacious and featured am Nespresso machine with free soft drinks. The vertical safe was an issue as it limits the space so perhaps that can be a improvement for the future. Apart from that everything was awesome and the bar downstairs was... More

Had a really wonderful stay. The location is just perfect and I requested a nice view prior to arrival, and that is what really made the hotel for me. Enormous full-length windows with stunning views! it's also very refreshing to have luxury but not old fashioned and pretentious - the hotel is fresh, colourful, luxurious and inviting. I had booked... More

We stayed here for one night when we visited Edinburgh for the rugby. Fantastic location a short walk from shops pubs and restaurants. Very friendly staff always on hand to assist. I have to say my favourite part of the stay was waking up in the morning to the sound of the piper in the street outside. Looking forward to... More

Stayed at G&V with some friends to celebrate my 50th birthday. Had great time and found staff very helpful and accommodating. Friends were through from Glasgow and also commented on how good the hotel and staff were. Will definitely return to stay at G&V again!

We stayed at the G&V for my boyfriends birthday this October. Really nice spacious rooms, the shower was excellent (think I staying in it for hours!) and the team even bought me some plasters up to my room for my blisters! Free of charge! The staff can't do enough for you. The location is fantastic, very close to the castle.... More

What a find! My wife and I checked a few other foyers and prices in Edinburgh before deciding the G&V looked like the right place. And we couldn't be happier. Fabulous, generous modern rooms that make great use of space and colour. Nice touch with the complimentary extras including bottled water. Wonderful location - just a small canon shot away... More

Really nice hotel in a great location. Lovely room with lovely decor. Not a lot of atmosphere in the bar. Breakfast nothing special. Always wanted to stay here but wouldn't hurry back. I emailed the spa before I went & still waiting on an answer.

I recently visited the G and V hotel, Salvador has a great knowledge of Edinburgh, a very genuinely friendly manner and went the extra mile when assisting me with Edinburghs attractions. Edinburgh looked spectacular this evening with the fireworks and reminded me what a beautiful city it is.
