G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh appoints Martin Scott as GM

Martin Scott has been appointed general manager of the five-AA-star, 136-bedroom G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh.

Scott was previously general manager of the Cairn Hotel Group, where he oversaw the launch of Hotel Indigo in Edinburgh, in addition to running Juniper Edinburgh and Twenty Princes Street Grill & Smokehouse. He will now head the completion of G& V Royal Mile's extensive refurbishment, which began in 2015 and includes the launch of a new bar later this year.

He said he is "buzzing with anticipation" at the completion of hotel's transformation from what was previously Hotel Missoni. "There is a very high energy in the team at the moment and we are looking forward to putting G&V on the map as the number one venue to visit in the city," he said.

Malcolm Rann, regional director, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, added: "Martin is known for being a young talent, known for his creativity and entrepreneurial flair, and we are thrilled to have him on-board."

The redesign of the hotel has included a new look for the hotel's nine suites by six leading creative talents, including fashion designer Judy R Clark, artist Christine Clark, design duo Timorous Beasties, artist and textile designer Hatti Pattisson and furniture designer Holster.

As well as the creation of a new bar, the ongoing refurbishment will include a new look for the hotel's lobby and restaurant, Cucina.
