Hi we are looking for clean hotel type accomodation in Edinburgh for late Sept of this year. We would prefer somewhere with parking as we will be hiring a car and driving to Scotland to include breakfast and ensuite facilities. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
VTer Beausoleil has a place that she likes but whether it has parking is another matter. You could email her and ask. Fyi, Edinburgh with a car is a nightmare - it is expensive and very difficult to park and totally redundant. You would perhaps do better to stay out of the centre and just use public transport to go in to the city centre. The Travelodge on St Mary Street is extremely centrally located, clean and so on. It does offer parking, at a price.as will all city centre accommodation. Travelodge are a budget chain but pretty good. You could also try the Travel Inn, Express by Holiday Inn, or any of the myriad BYB's. The visitscotland website has places listed, although you might do better just to google "accommodation Edinburgh" or "hotels Edinburgh" or "B&B edinburgh" and so on. Edinburgh accommodation is expensive. You can also try through www.booking.com, www.alpharooms.com and lastminute.com.
Try Alister Sawday B&B. Excellent recommendations.
Thanks Hawhead that was our plan I have looked at a place called Lochend Apartments. They look pretty nice but some reviews said the area is not very safe after dark? as we intend to bus into the city centre and possibly taxi home is this an issue any advice welcome.
I don't think you need to have too much concern about the location of Lochend Apartments; however, as it any city, just exercise the usual caution and be street wise. I personally don't know anything about the accommodation. I have looked at it on Google and it seems to be in a bit of a wasteland. I have always stayed right in the centre of Edinburgh, as it saves time commuting in and out. You have a car to take into the equation, so as the place provides parking, then it is an option. I would have thought, however, that somewhere more central would provide the same accommodation. The cost of taxis versus the extra cost of a central location would even itself out. I don't know how long you intend being in Edinburgh but it might become a bit tedious having to commute all the time. The one advantage of being central is that one can always return to one's accommodation mid-way for a bit of a rest and/or a snack! Have you tried laterooms.com? I know they list apartments and a lot of them have parking.......
