With five Georgian townhouses dating back to 1775 at its heart, The Principal Edinburgh on George Street has been carefully restored to create a well-appointed hotel which retains its local and historic charm.

The 240 rooms and suites have been refurbished to reflect the heritage of the building, with luxurious materials like oak, leather, brass, and marble. The colour scheme was inspired by the works of the great 19th-century Scottish landscape painters. The period features, combined with stylish lighting and intuitive technology, make for a comfortable and convenient retreat.

One of the townhouses, which was home to novelist Susan Ferrier, is now The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen, where you can feast on modern Scottish cooking. The late-night bar serves up a variety of single malts, as well as local spirits like Edinburgh gin and Scottish vodka. Grab a fresh cuppa as Burr & Co, the hotel’s popular coffee shop.
