A maximalist design-led hotel just off Edinburgh's coveted Royal Mile, with an award-winning restaurant

Edinburgh addresses don’t come much smarter than the Royal Mile, and this is its only five-star hotel. An iconic landmark in its own right, G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh cuts a striking dash in the historic heart of the city. From the outside, you can’t miss its modern presence, or the doormen kitted out in the hotel’s hallmark tweed kilts. Interiors make no less of an impact, with geometric patterns, polka dots, Crayola brights against punchy monochromes and graphic artworks. 

This kaleidoscopic fantasy is now part of the exclusive Quorvus Collection. There’s an expert concierge on hand to give insider tips on the best nightspots, exhibitions and eateries, and its own award-winning restaurant, Cucina, serves up Italian fare in designer surrounds and is well worth a try. The intimate hideaway spa offers a range of top-class treatments, and there is even a small boutique gym. Needless to say, the hotel scooped a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Good to know
