If a cool Yule is on your Christmas wish list then you can stop writing that letter to Santa right now ‘cos we’ve got it covered.
Take up today’s Big Deal on an overnight dinner, bed and breakfast stay at Rick’s and you can enjoy a relaxing break in one of Edinburgh’s most stylish boutique hotels – perfect for a pre-Christmas shopping trip in the capital but also ideal as a very kind Christmas pressie.
Centrally located on Frederick Street in the heart of the capital, Rick’s has ten super chic bedrooms, a popular, innovative restaurant and a vibrant cocktail bar.
Part of the multi-award winning Montpeliers group, Rick’s set the pace for Edinburgh’s fashionable nightlife when it launched in 1999 and it still leads the pack today.
Ideally suited for a sleek city break, this offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in one of the ten designer-styled rooms.
As well as a full cooked breakfast, guests will enjoy a three course dinner in Rick’s buzzy restaurant. A bottle of chilled Prosecco will helfp you settle in to your room.
There is a £25 supplementary charge for Friday night stays and a £50 charge for Saturday night stays.
Chic and comfortable
With just ten rooms, Rick’s provides a boutique alternative to big corporate chains and that independent streak shines through in the decor of the bedrooms. Elegant walnut headboards; angora and lambswool blankets plus custom-designed furniture means that the rooms look great and feel just as welcoming.
Cable TV, DVD players and your own sound system mean that top notch in-room entertainment is available at the flick of a switch, and, of course, WiFi is available.
Fresh produce and local suppliers are at the heart of the menu in Rick’s restaurant. As well as a full Scottish breakfast in the morning, you will also enjoy a three course dinner from Rick’s contemporary menu.
Typical dishes might include starters such as the pork rillettes with caramelised onion bread toasts and onion jam or the smoked haddock fish cakes with lime and caper crème fraîche
Popular main courses include the hand made 8oz Buccleuch beef burger with fries and tomato relish as well as the penne pasta with smoked chilli, black olives, plum tomatoes and shaved Parmesan.
Rick’s is brilliantly located for the shops of George Street not to mention the temptations of Harvey Nicks. Major attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, the National Museums of Scotland and the Winter Festival markets are all a short stroll away.
While the fab location is a big plus point, what guests tend to mention is the friendly, welcoming service. This is what a typical and recent TripAdvisor reviewer had to say:
‘Wonderful experience. Our stay at Rick’s hotel was an absolute pleasure during our recent trip to Edinburgh. It was nothing short of inspirational to see such a young, customer focused team of staff with such a high level of professionalism. We were always made to feel at home, and nothing was too much trouble for the team at Rick’s.’
