Edinburgh city offers stunning places to stay, covering of two worlds, one new and one old and both full of mystery.
There are endless options for a luxurious and unique place to stay in Edinburgh. Let's look at your options.
Where two worlds collide
Visiting Edinburgh at any time of the year brings excitement and intrigue.
Edinburgh is a city of continuous innovation. Built on history, hidden pathways weave through the old town, whilst new skylines grow from the latest building developments in new town, and there is always something happening in the plethora of bars, restaurants and venues.
Edinburgh offers stunning insight into two worlds, one new and one old and full of mystery.
Gone are the days of staying in bland hotels with faceless decor.
Edinburgh's unique history and modern outlook provides a wealth of unique accommodation, to suit your individual tastes.
For a stay with elegance, Edinburgh is blessed with unique holiday homes in both old town and new town.
The architecture lends itself to a classical look, with high Victorian and Georgian ceilings, ceiling roses and traditional cornices.
Staying in these traditional homes, provides characterful spaces seeped with long history.
For something a little different, Edinburgh has opened its architectural doors to creative new spaces, tastefully designed homes, and architect-designed accommodation.
For an Edinburgh stay with an architectural influence, a number of existing locations have been sensitively designed to blend into historical surroundings, whilst presenting award-winning designs that are entirely liveable, yet breath-taking.
If you don't want to venture far each day, choose to stay in a stunning holiday apartment within central Edinburgh.
Edinburgh is where two worlds collide with old meets new, history meets contemporary, and traditional meets modern.
The old town and new town both offer a unique place to stay within the heart of Edinburgh's cultural city centre.
These holiday apartments are tastefully decorated to help you relax, whether you've been immersing yourself in Edinburgh's culture and entertainment, visiting family or travelling for business.
Staying self-catering accommodation doesn't mean that you have to surrender your luxury.
Edinburgh loves a little luxury, and historically has created a luxurious style for those who could afford it.
Period restorations have tastefully upgraded the properties with modern conveniences, whilst maintaining a luxurious charm.
You'll see this luxury in Edinburgh self-catering accommodation, in particular in the townhouses, starting at the entrance.
Architects know that an experience starts with dramatic entranceways, and have designed the sweeping staircases to be flooded with light from the skylights.
Throughout the luxury self-catering accommodation there are luxury touches, from the overall design of the properties, to the little touches, that create a luxurious stay.
But luxury isn't for townhouses alone.
From apartments to cottages, and country manors to castles, there will be luxury self-catering homes to suit your tastes.
Edinburgh is well served by public transport, linking the outskirts and neighbouring towns with a wealth of transport options.
With a good network of roads surrounding Edinburgh, it's easy to drive into the city, or use the various Park and Ride options, built to reduce city traffic and improve air pollution.
Edinburgh's beauty stretches throughout its outer limit, and into the neighbouring towns and countryside.
Edinburgh does coastal towns well, so staying in St Andrews in Fife, or the areas around Gullane, Haddington and North Berwick in East Lothian can provide you with that beach feel, just a short distances from Edinburgh.
If you're more about the rural views, then look no further than Dalkeith. With beautiful scenery, flowing rivers and the greenest of hills, you can be in the countryside, in the city and back home within the day.
As Edinburgh is a compact city, it tends to offer smaller accommodation within the central area.
If you're planning a stay in Edinburgh with your extended family, or a larger group of friends, you may need to look outside of Edinburgh city limits for your ideal location.
There are plenty of options to stay just outside of the city or in a neighbouring area with your large group of friends and family.
