We visited G&V Hotel as a group of friends, and we all really liked it. The staff were professional and polite, and the hotel itself was lovely. I was a little disappointed that that Nespresso machine in our room didn't work (the one in our friends room didn't work either) but this wouldn't stop me from visiting again, although some... More

I had wanted to stay at this hotel for some time, after hearing good things about it. Unfortunately a broken Nespresso machine, cracked door mirror and mediocre shower made it less than impressive. There are better places in Edinburgh to stay.

The stay here was something of a surprise as our party was originally expecting to stay in the Radisson Blu a little way down the road, but a change of plans found us at the G&V instead – and while unexpected it does sound like we benefitted greatly from the shift. Colleague staying in the Radisson were far from complimentary... More

If your looking for an excellent hotel in Edinburgh then you can't go wrong. This may not be the cheapest hotel but as soon as you walk up to the entrance you realise why. The hotel is modern and the staff were excellent with nothing being too much trouble throughout our stay. Ideally located on the Royal Mile within 2... More
