A quirky stay at a vibrant five-star hotel in Old Town Edinburgh, mere steps from the iconic Royal Mile

Edinburgh addresses don’t come much more stylish than the Royal Mile, and this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner is the only five-star hotel you'll find on the famous thoroughfare. An iconic landmark in its own right, G&V Royal Mile Hotel cuts a striking figure in the historic heart of the city. From the outside, you can’t miss its modern presence or the doormen decked out in the hotel’s hallmark tweed kilts. Interiors make no less of an impact, with geometric patterns, polka dots and Crayola brights blending seamlessly with punchy monochromes and graphic artworks. 

This kaleidoscopic fantasy is now part of the exclusive Quorvus Collection, and it boasts the type of high-end touches you'd expect from a member of this elite group. There’s an expert concierge on hand to give insider tips on the best nightspots, exhibitions and eateries, and the hotel even houses its own award-winning restaurant, Cucina, which serves up delicious Italian fare in designer surroundings. You'll also find an intimate spa offering a range of top-class treatments, and there are a small boutique gym and a DVD library available, should you wish to enjoy a cozy night in.
