Edinburgh Escape.

10 April 2013

During the month of December S and I took a few weeks away, one of which was to Edinburgh. We had a lovely time, burrowed into our beautiful room in the Caledonian Hotel and visited the zoo, Harvey Nichols, the Dome and the Christmas fayre - all my favourite tourist attractions obviously. We loved it so much that last week, with the excuse of some blogger events to attend, we decided to book it again - requesting the same room, number 150, that we had last time since we loved it so much.

Although I love to travel I'm not a huge lover of surprises so I tend to stick to hotels that I know I like, whether I've stayed there before or whether it's a chain that I know I can trust. With the Caledonian being a Waldorf Astoria I knew we weren't going to be disappointed, and when we realised we loved it enough to go back I decided it was definitely due some coverage on my little slice of the internet. Lovely, helpful staff, perfect location at the end of Princess Street, gorgeous surroundings, wonderful food and a beautiful bar. This one definitely comes in at no.1 in my top 3 Edinburgh hotels.

Although Edinburgh is a mere train ride from Glasgow each time we've gone there we really do feel like we're getting away and shutting the door on the outside world, which is just a lovely feeling and goes to show you don't necessarily need to book flights and weeks at a time off of uni/work/life to get a bit of much needed R&R. And if you happen to be taking that R&R in Edinburgh then go for the Caledonian, and book a deluxe king - the perfect room to come home to after a perfect day in Scotland's beautiful capital.

*Not a sponsered/requested/PR funded post - all paid for with our own money and getting a rave over here because we genuinely love it.
