Very comfortable and well situated for city sightseeing. The Castle and Royal Mile are right on the door-step and Princess Street/central districts and rail stations within very easy reach. All the staff, at every level, proved to be very helpful and informative. The room we stayed in was a little tired but still of a pretty high standard. The only... More

The best service I have and believe I will have for a very very long time. A huge thanks to Henna and Ann (Henna in particular as she has worked really hard to make both visits memorable). This is the second visit we have had this year and I can be sure in saying we will be back soon.... X

visited Edinburgh on 19 December. Booked Gand V as my daughter had stayed there before. Asked for quiet room but when we were shown there, we could hear a whistling noise coming from somewhere. Without any hesitation, the duty manager moved us to a higher grade room which was superb.This set the scene for our few days there. A few... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, the weekend before Christmas. It was our second visit to this hotel, and again it has exceded our expectations. Everything was perfect. George was very friendly and confident in his job role which immediately made us feel relaxed and comfortable. We will definitely return again in the Summer.

We had 2 nights in this lovely hotel last weekend and left feeling great! The hotel itself is lovely. Great location, lovely decor, delicious breakfast etc but what really made it for us was the staff. Every interaction with a staff member was pleasing which is so often not the case anymore. From the staff who checked us in to... More

Few days in a beautiful hotel. Fantastic view from the room (508). Perfectly located. Several pubs and restaurants nearby. Castle few hundreds meters away. Downtown in 10 min (walking). Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Difficult to ask for more. Do not hesitate!

My partner & I stayed here for one night & would thoroughly recommend it. We arrived & got checked in straight away & had someone take us to our room (would recommend this as the lift can be a bit confusing to use as you need to use your room card!). Our room was lovely and couldn't fault it. We... More

I was booked into the hotel as a thank-you present with a bonus facial and massage the following morning. The staff certainly made you feel welcome from the doorperson to the Spa. I have previously stayed twice at The Glasshouse and noticed the staff treatment of guests at G&V was much more friendly. The room had a modern sophisticated feel,... More
