The Principal Edinburgh George Street

The Principal Edinburgh George Street

Beautiful events and meetings venue and hotel recently awarded Edinburgh Events Hotel of the Year & Edinburgh Wedding Hotel of the Year at the 2014 Scottish Hotel Awards. Located on George Street, one of the finest streets in Edinburgh and taking prime position in the heart of the city, The George Hotel boasts one of the most prestigious locations in Scotland's capital.

In the 1840s the building was remodelled by the architect David Bryce and again by MacGibbon and Ross in 1880, until finally opening as a hotel in 1881, making it one of the oldest in Edinburgh. The George Hotel is now owned by the Principal Hayley Hotel group and has recently undergone another transformation in the form of a £20 million refurbishment.

The venue offers a spectacular environment that combines stylish architecture across nine conference and event suites. Choose from the grand King’s Hall for large events with a capacity of 300 delegates, the elegant George Suite with seating for 100 or the unique Panorama meeting room, at the top of the hotel with views across Edinburgh ideal for boardroom meetings and private dining.

Add in cutting edge technology, Wi-Fi, a dedicated support team and dining options including a working Day Deli lunch, 3-courses in the Tempus Restaurant and free flowing drinks and snacks at central Coffee Stations and the hotel covers all facilities you need for hosting a successful conference, meeting, dinners, functions or training event in Edinburgh.
