Hotel du Vin

4 star rating 11 Bristo Place

Edinburgh Old Town Midlothian EH1 2QN

The fine Egyptian linens and luxury handsprung matresses add a magical dimension to a night in Edinburgh Old Town. Sleep easy at the Hotel Du Vin.

The Hotel du Vin in Edinburgh’s Old Town is one of those hotels that takes the lodging experience to a whole new beautiful level. Those arriving in Edinburgh’s Old Town will be struck by an almost ‘Potteresque’ or ‘Hogsmeade’ quality to the district, a place best defined by an ethereal, almost magical property and buoyed by a dazzling abundance of tea-shops, cafes, taverns and old curiosity shops; a veritable paradise of cobblestones and cornices, bistros and broomsticks. Oddly enough, just a minute or two down the road you'll find 'The Elephant House' a delightful little cafe where Rowling wrote her famous novels.

Edinburgh Old Town is a peculiar but no less beguiling blend of deeply gothic mystery and medieval romance and the fact that Hotel du Vin is built upon the site of a former city asylum only adds to the intrigue. The 47 timelessly styled bedrooms and astonishing suites with their lavish handsprung mattresses, fine Egyptian linens, deep baths and powerful drench showers, plasma TVs, DVDs and air conditioning offers a tantalising glimpse of a life less ordinary.

Unexpected and slightly eccentric highlights include a cigar bothy, whisky snug, an intriguing Laroche tasting room and an exceptional wine cellar. Matt Powell Bistro du Vin beats at the heart of the Hotel du Vin, a restaurant that offers a rare combination of classic French elegance and something a little more casual and laid-back.

Guests at the Hotel du Vin can dine on the finest produce the Lothian region has to offer with ingredients sourced locally from D.R. Collin Fish, The Mellis Cheesemongers and the 'birth to butcher reared' lamb and pork of Peelham Farm – R4U
