The novelist Alexander McCall Smith has said that Edinburgh ‘is a city of shifting light, of changing skies, of sudden vistas. A city so beautiful it breaks the heart again and again.’
Fall in love with Scotland’s capital with today’s Big Deal at the cosmopolitan Radisson Blu.
Royal Mile location
Brilliantly located on the Royal Mile, this four star hotel is ideal for visiting well known attractions such as Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace as well as exploring the historic vennels, wynds and closes of the Old Town.
If you would rather explore the capital’s shops, Harvey Nicks and the designer boutiques of Multree Walk are only a short walk from the Radisson Blu.
This Big Deal is for two people to stay in a twin or double room and enjoy the hotel’s super breakfast buffet in the morning.
Of course, guests are also welcome to take other meals (not included) in the hotel’s stylish Itchycoo Bar and Kitchen.
From smoked salmon to Aberdeen Angus beef, the menu offers a great taste of Scotland’s natural larder as well as more exotic choices from around the world.
Designed in a welcoming, contemporary style, the rooms at the Radisson feature free WiFi; a drinks tray and luxurious Anne Semonin bath products.
As part of this Big Deal, you can also take advantage of a late check out until noon and free parking – particularly useful in Edinburgh.
In addition, the Radisson Blu has a state of the art fitness centre complete with a swimming pool and sauna which you are welcome to use during your visit.
The Radisson Blu on the Royal Mile has no shortage of fans. This is what a couple of recent guests had to say on TripAdvisor:
‘What a location! Bang on the Royal Mile and a five minutes walk, on either side, to the Castle and Palace. All other attractions and start points of walking tours etc are all at their door step. Cant think of a better location for those wanting to be at the middle of it all.’
‘Fabulous. Definitely one of the best hotels I’ve stayed in :) All the hotel staff I came across were really helpful and friendly… The breakfast staff were also very bubbly and accommodating; always at hand to help you. The whole hotel experience was fabulous. From a comfy bed, brilliant cocktails from the bar, excellent room service, awesome customer service, brilliant buffet breakfast and a trendy looking hotel. What more could you ask for? :)’
This Big Deal writer is an Edinburgh local and I love the capital in winter. Looking across to the Castle from the Bridges after snow has fallen is the sort of sight that would make Mr McCall Smith wax lyrical.
If you know someone special who would love to see Edinburgh sparkle in the winter sun then snap up today’s Big Deal.
With vouchers valid from the beginning of February to the end of April 2015, this would make a fantastic Christmas gift.
It would also be perfect for a day trip to Edinburgh or as a very convenient stop over if you were in town to catch a show at the Playhouse.
