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

Nice hotel in great location on the Royal Mile with close access to the castle, old town, whisky & ghost tours etc. Stylish and quiet rooms. Friendly and helpful reception staff at check in and throughout stay. Nice cocktail bar. Only disappointment was the in-house restaurant Cucina where the food was fine but nothing special and the service poor (failed... More

Stayed for one night and had a double room in the third floor. The staff were welcoming and very helpful and always had a smile on their faces! The room was spotless with modern decor and quality toiletries. Although the hotel is in the centre of the Old Town we didn't notice any traffic noise. Breakfast was plentiful and freshly... More

Perfect location, overnight stay after a concert. Staff very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Bedroom well appointed and everything spotlessly clean. Most comfortable hotel bed ever, slept like a baby. Double glazing and shutters ensured no street noise from the Royal Mile. Amazing waterfall shower and a lovely breakfast although the tea could have been hotter. Only complaint was... More
