This Edinburgh based hotel sits just off the bustling Royal Mile in the Old Town, between Edinburgh’s iconic castle and Holyrood Palace. You're right on the doorstep of fabulous shopping, impressive museums and galleries, the striking Georgian and Victorian architecture and during August, the world's biggest arts festival – the Edinburgh Fringe.
Once a poorhouse, then asylum, then science lab, and now a stunning luxury hotel, the building has taken many guises since it was built in 1743. Bursting with character, the hotel features 47 distinctive rooms and suites. They’ve been designed with the kind of luxury you’d expect from Hotel du Vin, with custom made sleigh beds, hand-sprung mattresses, soft Egyptian cotton bed linen, fluffy towels, robes, and a monsoon shower or in-room roll top bath. In the summer months, the central courtyard transforms into an al fresco dining area, but don’t worry if the weather’s not on your side – keep safe from the elements at the Bistro du Vin kitchen. Enjoy afternoon tea, a catch up in the bar with a cocktail, a cosy nightcap in the Whisky Snug, or a cigar and tipple in the heated Cigar Bothy.
If you’re looking for somewhere a little different for a business meeting, a private party, a family get-together or wedding celebration, their characterful and unconventional function rooms are just the answer. For business or pleasure, it has to be Hotel du Vin Edinburgh.
