Sparkling under the autumn sunshine, Edinburgh is looking absolutely gorgeous.
The leaves are turning in the parks; the city’s many fine restaurants are making the most of the harvest season and the theatres are buzzing.
It’s the perfect time to pay a visit.
Enjoy everything Edinburgh has to offer with today’s Big Deal on an overnight stay for two at Brooks Hotel on Grove Street in the West End.
Given a top-to-bottom refurbishment in 2013, Brooks has a fresh, contemporary feel, while retaining many of the fine period features of the house.
A welcoming, family-run hotel, the rooms are sumptuously decorated with designer wallpaper, plump bedding, impressive artworks and a unique blend of modern and vintage furniture handpicked from Edinburgh’s independent shops.
Afternoon tea and Prosecco
The offer is for an overnight stay in a double or twin room with a full cooked Scottish breakfast in the morning. A late check-out to 12.30pm means you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast.
Afternoon tea on the day of arrival is included as is a chilled bottle of Prosecco in your room – the perfect start to your Edinburgh getaway.
All of the 46 bedrooms are en suite and have recently been beautifully and sensitively renovated. Original features, such as the delicate Victorian crackle glaze bathroom tiles, have been carefully preserved and are enhanced by the vintage pieces that decorate each room.
The stylish contemporary furniture, bold designer wallpaper and up-to-date essentials such as free Wi-Fi, digital radio alarm clocks and flat screen televisions add a fresh and modern feel to the rooms.
In the elegant dining room you’ll be treated to an excellent breakfast. The full Scottish breakfast includes award-winning haggis from a local butcher, while simple classics such as boiled eggs and soldiers are always popular.
So too are the delicious jams with toasted English muffins or thick slices of artisan bread, freshly delivered each morning by a nearby bakery.
Handy, given the current Indian summer, the attractive courtyard offers the perfect place to relax among the flowerpots with an ice cold drink from the well-stocked honesty bar.
On more chilly days, guests can retreat to the comfortable lounge and relax in the warmth of the fire with a wee dram from the honesty bar.
The elegant lounge is also a tranquil spot in which to enjoy your afternoon tea, served every day until 4pm.
Brooks Hotel enjoys a great location from which to enjoy Scotland’s capital. The Castle is just a mile from the front door and it is a gentle ten-minute walk to the labyrinth of historic, cobbled streets of the Old Town, including the famous Royal Mile and Grassmarket.
Alternatively, Princes Street in Edinburgh’s New Town is only a five-minute walk away, offering an exceptional shopping experience amid its broad and handsome Georgian streets.
Brooks Hotel is a five minute walk from Haymarket train station and there is an underground car park just behind the hotel. On-street parking is available just off Grove Street and is chargeable between 8.30am and 6.30pm Monday to Saturday, but is free of charge overnight and all day on Sundays.
TripAdvisor users have left many enthusiastic reviews of Brooks Hotel:
‘Lovely place! Easy walking distance from Haymarket Station and from the centre of town. The staff were very helpful. The rooms were well presented. There was a good selection for the breakfast cooked and cereals etc. The best part was the lounge with an honesty bar, very comfy couches and selection of board/card games.’
‘Wonderful little place – had a great stay here… Despite having to change our booking, the staff always remained helpful and polite on the phone… atmosphere in this place is lovely. The room was a good size, the bathroom was very clean, and the beds were comfortable… we particularly appreciated the sunny courtyard where we could enjoy pre-dinner drinks… The lounge was very cool, too, and the staff at breakfast quick to take orders and deliver.’
This Big Deal would be ideal for a pre-Christmas shopping trip; a romantic city break or a great excuse to stay over after seeing a show or catching a concert in the capital.
