Situated in the landmark India Buildings in Edinburgh’s Old Town, a stone’s throw from Edinburgh Castle, the hotel features 222 Chambers and Grand Chamber Suites and multiple dining and drinking outlets, all with their own unique space and distinct design.
This includes Commons Club, Virgin Hotels’ flagship restaurant and bar that acts as a modern day social club; and Eve, a vibrant, all-day dining space, offering a progressive approach to late night entertainment in Edinburgh. The hotel site is also home to a 19th century church, now known as Greyfriars Hall, that has been beautifully restored and repurposed as a special event venue. In addition, the hotel offers a rooftop sanctuary with unobstructed Edinburgh Castle views.
Spanning across 10 floors, guests have plenty of choice when selecting a Chamber or Suite, with 15 unique categories including the signature suite, Richard’s Flat with beautifully restored architectural details and furnished with contemporary pieces in order to strike the perfect balance for Sir Richard’s home away from home and the Eve Branson suite, found under the bell tower of the restored mediaeval church where the dramatic architecture is tempered with a muted pallet in rich textures.
The ever-charming suite is a nod to the Virgin founder's late mother. For guests looking for something a little different, there is the Moroccan-inspired Kasbah Tamadot Suite, a nod to the prestigious Virgin Limited Edition property in the Atlas Mountains, with a secret second floor lounge tented in traditional fabrics and adorned with festive lanterns and sumptuous furnishings.
