G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh has been rebranded to Radisson Collection Edinburgh Royal Mile https://www.radissonhotels.com/en-us/hotels/radisson-collection-edinburgh-royal-mile
This beautiful boutique hotel in Edinburgh City Center is the only five-star hotel on the Royal Mile. The lobby is cozy and stylish with a modern Scottish feel.
The unique and colorful Cucina restaurant is upstairs from the lobby.
This chic newly re-designed restaurant incorporates colorful wallpaper, wrapped pillars, soft cushions and booths. Here Chef Mattia Camorani offers award winning, seasonal and contemporary Italian dishes in an elegant restaurant setting.
We chose Cucina’s unique and innovative afternoon tea.
To begin the afternoon tea experience you are presented with a box of different teas which you can touch, smell and decide which one is just right for you.
When the tea is brought to the table there is a lovely 3-4-5 minute sand timer so you know when your special pot of tea is properly brewed.
