All About George

The George Hotel in Edinburgh recently underwent a big refurbishment and to celebrate they held a big party which we were luck enough to be invited along to.

In true Scottish style, we were greeted at the entrance by a Piper, although it was raining this provided a true sense of arrival.

After being greeted in the lobby we were directed into a lovely intimate space, The Library, for arrival drinks. A perfect space to mingle and chat away before dinner.

Dinner was served in the impressive Kings Hall with it’s stunning flight chandelier centrepiece. I was pleased to see the tables were set around a small dance floor (dancing later confirmed!) with a stage to the front for the entertainment.

Lots of thought had clearly gone in to the evening with tables named after famous books such as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. Our table was James & The Giant Peach. Several copies of the story were on the table as little keepsakes.

Once we were all seated and comfortable the evening started. It was the perfect setting to learn all about the refurbishment including the new coffee shop Burr & Co and the new restaurant The Printing Press. We also got to hear about some famous Guests, most recently George Clooney! who was one the first guest to stay in the newly refurbished suite and apparently he loved it. The evening went on with some great pre-dinner entertainment from The Jerseytones, a barber shop style band who got people up dancing even before the food was out.

The food was provided by The Printing Press, and showcased fresh Scottish ingredients which they serve. Salmon Terrine followed by a trio of Beef, which was beautifully cooked, and finally, my favourite, a very tasty fruity Cheesecake. ALL of the food was beautifully cooked and presented – I will definitely be back for seconds!

We also had the opportunity to have a sneaky peek at newly refurbished bedrooms, including the George Suite (named after George Clooney). The rooms are beautiful, with big comfy beds and contemporary décor.
