Exciting Scotland

Short Breaks in Edinburgh

Planning a stay in Edinburgh? From £49 a night, our budget hotels offer a cosy, affordable base for a fun-packed weekend break or school holiday exploring Scotland's capital.

A city packed to the rafters with Scottish charm

Edinburgh is a city like no other. Stunning views, historic buildings and arguably one of the world's most famous arts festivals, the Edinburgh Fringe. But whether you're scaling the majestic castle or sipping whisky in the company of a band of buskers, you'll want a comfortable base where you can put your feet up and recharge your batteries.

Our lodges are great budget hotels with character, with all the home comforts needed to make your stay in Edinburgh memorable and relaxing. Each offers free parking and WiFi plus complimentary buffet breakfasts. If you want to go the whole hog you can order a hot Scottish breakfast too.

Corstorphine South Queensferry

So, what do you want to do? Here are some of our favourite Edinburgh attractions.

Outdoor activities for all

It's hard not to be active in Edinburgh, hilly as it is, so even walking the streets will keep you fit. But if you like a challenge why not head to Holyrood Park for a hike up Arthur's Seat? Our lodge at Corstorphine is nearby. The city boasts an intricate network of paths for cyclists and golfers are spoilt with Carnoustie and St Andrew's just a stone's throw from our lodge in South Queensferry.

Fun days out for families

Got a family to entertain? How about taking a picnic and exploring the winding paths and rock garden at the Royal Botanic Gardens, or take advantage of the Camera Obscura in Edinburgh Castle and enjoy the views of the city while you're at it? Then there's the zoo – always a favourite with the wee ones.

Enjoy a cultural capital

Edinburgh's never short on culture, especially during the summer festival when the whole city springs to life with buskers on every corner, comedy in every pub and a show in every theatre. Head up to the Royal Mile for the best in street performance or hang out at the bottom of Castle Hill to catch the best of the festival atmosphere. Plus there are the five National Galleries of Scotland for art, and the National Museum for history. Truly something for everyone.

If you're a food and drink lover, you're coming to the right place. Edinburgh is renowned for its diverse cuisine and award-winning restaurants, but if you really want to get to the heart of the place, try the Whisky Experience on the Royal Mile.
