Pocket Guide: Hotels near Edinburgh Airport

Whether you’re interested in a family-friendly hotel with childcare facilities, or a business hotel with meeting rooms and AV equipment for hire, good-value Edinburgh Airport hotels are in plentiful supply

Where to stay near Edinburgh Airport

Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is rich in history and tradition, yet it boasts a very cosmopolitan outlook. Ancient architecture is elegantly combined with prestigious boutique shops, fine-dining restaurants and a fantastic roster of cultural attractions. If you’re searching for hotels in Edinburgh you’ll find an excellent selection available throughout the city.

Many visitors will choose to base themselves in Edinburgh’s attractive Old Town, a Unesco World Heritage Site, with a notoriously lively nightlife scene. Overlooking the Old Town stands majestic Edinburgh Castle, from where the Royal Mile extends down to the Scottish Parliament and Holyrood Palace. Whether you’re interested in shopping, dining, drinking or just admiring the stunning architecture, the Old Town is the place to stay.

Other popular neighbourhoods of Edinburgh in which to base yourself are the vibrant South Side area where there are many good restaurants, hotels, B&Bs and guesthouses, and Haymarket in the West End, known for its superb and diverse eateries.

If you are staying in an Edinburgh Airport hotel then you are also just an hour from Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland. Here, the sobriety of the magnificent Victorian architecture belies Glasgow’s effervescent nature. Once the country’s industrial engine, this edgy port city is rife with acclaimed cultural institutions and a party scene that would make most other European cities green with envy. There are many excellent value Glasgow hotels available that will put you right in the heart of the action.

Edinburgh Airport hotels are also within easy driving distance of Dunfermline, which is just 30 minutes away across the Forth road bridge. The birthplace of legendary industrialist Andrew Carnegie, Dunfermline is also the final resting place of Robert the Bruce, who lies in the graveyard of Dunfermline Abbey.

What not to miss near Edinburgh Airport

Visitors staying at a hotel near Edinburgh Airport are close to all of the city’s many great attractions, while avoiding the crowds and potentially saving considerable sums on the cost of accommodation.

There are plenty of unmissable sights in and around Edinburgh, the principal one being of course Edinburgh Castle, a Scottish icon that occupies a dominant position atop Castle Rock. Families will love exploring the old prisons, the Great Hall and the Stone of Destiny, as well as witnessing the traditional firing of the One O’clock Gun. If you are bringing the kids along, you will have little difficulty finding a suitable family-friendly hotel at Edinburgh Airport.

From the castle you can move downwards toward the Royal Mile, which along with Princes Street is one of the liveliest streets in the city, and runs all the way down to the 17th century Holyrood Palace. Take a tour of Holyrood Palace and you can see the former apartments of Mary, Queen of Scots, who lost her head during Scotland’s turbulent history.

Other popular visits in Edinburgh include the beautiful Royal Botanic Garden, which can offer moments of tranquillity even at its busiest, and the National Gallery. Showcased in this prestigious building are treasures from Scottish artists including Wilkie, Ramsay and Raeburn, as well as works of art by Cezanne, Van Gogh and Botticelli.

When to visit Edinburgh

If you plan to arrive in Edinburgh during August then ensure you book your accommodation well in advance, as the world-famous Edinburgh Festival spans the whole month. Actually a conglomeration of many smaller festivals, the best known of which is the Fringe, the Edinburgh Festival is among the cultural highpoints of the year in Scotland.

Another popular time to visit Edinburgh is during Hogmanay, or the New Year celebrations, when wild parties take places in bars and on the streets across the city. The torchlight procession down the Royal Mile is a major highlight.

Should you be partial to a wee dram now and again, then why not try a spot of whisky tasting in Edinburgh. You can sample it in bars, distilleries, and even the homes of locals throughout the year.
