Restaurant Host - Principal Hotel Company

The Principal Edinburgh George Street

George Street is the smartest address in Edinburgh’s New Town, and The Principal Edinburgh George Street lives up to its location, thanks – in particular – to the recent, multi-million pound renovation of the entire hotel. Elegant designs by Goddard Littlefair are respectful of the original, listed Georgian townhouses that form the heart of the hotel, but provide all the comfort and convenience of modern travel. A brand new restaurant, The Printing Press, champions fresh, seasonal, Scottish produce, whilst Burr & Co. is a lovely little coffee shop. At the heart of the M&E portfolio is the grand King’s Hall, originally built for the Caledonian Insurance Company.
