Edinburgh Hotels

All year tourists swarm Edinburgh in droves and, needless to say, finding comfortable accommodation is a high priority for them all. With that, it's no surprise that Edinburgh has come to boast a wide selection of wonderful hotels. There something here for everyone, from families to hipsters to romantic couples.

The best hotel to catch a glimpse of a celebrity is still The Witchery by the Castle, whose rooms and dining areas feature Gothic opulence at its best. But preferred by the likes of Britney Spears and J.K. Rowling, the Balmoral Hotel on Princes Street might be the one to beat in luxury and grandeur.

For couples looking for a romantic hideaway, the Bonham Hotel is the best boutique hotel in Edinburgh. If you want breakfast to come with that bed, the Ardmor House is a gay-owned but straight-friendly B&B within walking distance of the best of the city's nightlife.

In the Old Town, the landmark Scotsman Hotel shares the name and was once home to the headquarters of the city's newspaper. The Howard Hotel in the New Town is heralded as the most "discrete" hotel in the city. At the very least it boasts some of the best bathrooms in Edinburgh.

If you need to embrace nature, romp in the woodlands and pastures of the 17th century Prestonfield Hotel, which has hosted the world's best and brightest from Benjamin Franklin to Sean Connery. If you'd rather frolic by the waterfront, then the hip Malmaison by the docks in the place for you.
