Information about The Principal Edinburgh George Street Hotel

Stay in a beautiful Grade 2 listed building in the heart of Edinburgh, a short walk from the Castle, National Museum of Scotland and Queen Street Gardens, at the 5-star The Principal Edinburgh George Street. Curl up in your colourful room, which is fitted with a flat-screen TV, with cable and on-demand movies, wifi access and private bathroom. After a major refurbishment the hotel's restaurant and bar, The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen opened in late 2015. The vision for the restaurant has been developed by one of London’s most respected restaurateurs, Des McDonald. With over 20 years’ experience running some of city’s most high profile establishments, he has shaped every aspect of The Printing Press from the concept, design and menu to bring a new restaurant experience to Edinburgh’s dining scene. The restaurant on George Street nods to the capital’s rich literary heritage: number 25 George Street was home in the 1780s to the acclaimed novelist Susan Ferrier, the equal of Jane Austen, according to Sir Walter Scott, and Robert Burns was a frequent visitor; late, in 1840, records show one John Oliphant living there – and Oliphant’s and Ferrier’s descendants founded Oliphant, Anderson and Ferrier, one of Scotland’s most prestigious publishing houses.
