City breaks to Edinburgh
Edinburgh is a firm favourite for city breaks and has an excellent range of B&Bs in and around the town centre which are perfect for your stay. Relax in one of the City’s traditional town houses which often provide great facilities including free Wi-Fi, a guest lounge and licensed bar. Enjoy a locally sourced full Scottish breakfast and some properties can also provide evening meals by arrangement. There is a good choice of family friendly B&Bs and a small number will also take pets by arrangement. Stay in a welcoming guest house close to the Royal Mile for relaxing strolls up to the Castle or down to Holyrood Park. A B&B in the West End can also be convenient for Murrayfield or if you travelling to Edinburgh via the Airport.
Edinburgh romantic breaks
With a boutique range of B&Bs, charming castle and plenty of theatres to choose from, Edinburgh provides a superb base for a romantic weekend away. Choose from either contemporary or period accommodation with four poster beds and some properties offer other facilities including street parking and feature bathrooms. There is a good range of period B&Bs in Edinburgh city centre or stay close to the docks to take a tour of the Royal Yacht Britannia during your visit. Ride an open top bus tour and see the city in style, enjoy the wonderful views from Arthur’s Seat or discover all about Scotland’s history at the National Museum of Scotland during your weekend away.
In and around Edinburgh
If you wish to stay out of the hustle and bustle of the City Centre, Edinburgh has plenty of welcoming B&Bs set just a short bus ride away which often have handy facilities including free parking which are harder to come by closer to town. A B&B just away from the City Centre can also be ideal for business travellers wanting easy access to the M8 & M9 located just to the west of the City or for travellers heading north over the Forth Road Bridge. Enjoy hiking in the surrounding Lothian hills or explore the coastline of the Firth of Forth, an important conservation area.
