Superb hotel. Very clean and spacious rooms. Polite and attentive staff. Breakfast was ideal with a large selection both hot and cold foods. Wonderful bar area. The hotel is a perfect location for many shops and bars. Not too far to walk from main tram station of Waverley. A note of advice: Take a slightly longer stroll up the winding... More

We have stayed at many 5 star hotels over the years of our travel, but must say this time I found the hotel not worth the price. We paid close to $600 US per night for a room that had the most inconvenient arrangement. It had a table at one end with NO lighting near it all so in the... More

This was my 4th time staying at the hotel during the Festival. It's a classy place but its also fairly expensive, but the location is great so I'm not one to grumble - until this trip. For the past three years they have always given me a room at the very very end of the hotel and facing the Royal... More

Dear WilliamAllen54, Please accept my sincere and profuse apologies that your returning stay did not live up to your past experiences at G&V and thus has prompted you to write a review online.

Stayed for 2 nights with my partner in Oct 2015. Excellent location, right on the Royal Mile. Very modern, comfortable, and clean hotel. Staff were very friendly, professional, and accommodating. Would stay again. Bathroom especially was of a high standard.

Where do I start, well how about asking how this hotel can be considered to be 5 star? We were a party of 25 business people who had booked the higher rated signature rooms on a b&b basis. 2 of the party were allocated disabled rooms. 2 tiny drawers and hanging facilities resulting in tops, casual shirts and underwear, etc....

The good: - Perfect location - Stylish rooms - Purple bathroom - how cool!! All shiny and pretty. Loved it! - Breakfast was amazing - so much to eat I left feeling a couple of pounds heavier. There are no negatives about this hotel at all. Totally spot on - loved the wallpaper in the rooms by the way!

Popped in here to have drink away from packed high street. Cocktails very nice and space to sit but bar really is too dark. Staff lovely and friendly but not necessarily the most observant and we frequently had to go and get them from bar for service. Had a couple of items off food menu which were fine but not... More

Spacious well accented rooms, dark curtains. Midday cleaning service a bit noisy in hall. Lobby bar has many fun imaginative 'Signature Cocktails'! Adjacent to Riyal Mile so LOCATION is tops! And friendly staff in the lobby and the bar as well as on the floor with housekeeping.

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
