Self Indulgence at Edinburgh Hotels
Why not tantalise your taste buds this Christmas and indulge yourself in a winter retreat to the Scottish capital. Here you will find an array of boutique hotels and luxury five star living quarters. If you want to really spoil yourself you should stay in the Rocco Forte Balmoral Hotel or the Scotsman Hotel. Many other hotels provide an excellent five star service, with guestrooms that allow you to truly immerse yourself in deluxe living.
The Rocco Forte Balmoral Hotel boasts an ideal location very close to the city centre. In addition to this, it has a fully functioning health spa, which is ideal for pampering yourself away from home. The cuisine that the hotel offers is more than tempting, with both a restaurant and a brassiere that will serve your every need. If you still find yourself peckish after hours (and if you’re feeling particularly self-indulgent) you can enjoy a scrumptious meal from the room service menu.
The Scotsman Hotel is one of Edinburgh’s finest and was restored and converted in 2001. The hotel’s private health club boasts a solarium, a steam room, a sauna and a 15-metre swimming pool. For a delicious menu you can visit the North Bridge Brasserie, which provides a luscious and eclectic menu. The hotel is particularly appropriate for business meetings or family affairs, possessing eleven meeting rooms that can each hold one hundred people.
So, if you fancy a cosy retreat this Christmas you should take advantage of the five star Edinburgh hotels. It seems to be the only real way to escape the hectic modern lifestyles that so many of us endure these days. Spending a few days in a boutique hotel in Edinburgh will provide the necessary comfort that will enable you to carry on with another year of hard work. It is also very appropriate for Londoners, as it is a reasonable distance from the city and there are plenty of cheap flights on offer. You can get that holiday feeling without even having to leave the United Kingdom!
For an extra special treat in Edinburgh you can take part in the Scotch Whisky Experience that will give you an insight into the production and history of whisky in the city. For a scrumptious meal after, you should take advantage of the Michelin star restaurants in the city. For the Michelin experience within your hotel visit the Number One restaurant located within the Balmoral Hotel. Edinburgh hotels have so much to offer. You will not be disappointed.
