There are few gifts that make the recipient more giddy with excitement than being whisked away to Scotland’s spectacular capital.
Even better when it’s for a stay in one of the city’s most glamorous hotels.
This gift is guaranteed to make the lucky person who receives it squeal with delight on Christmas Day. It’s for an overnight stay with dinner and cocktails in one of the country’s most chic destinations – Tigerlily.
One of the world’s top hotels
This boutique hotel, cocktail bar and restaurant that kicked off the George Street boom in Edinburgh, it is no exaggeration to say that Tigerlily is one of the capital’s most fashionable destinations.
But you don’t have to believe us. Condé Nast Traveller has called it ‘One of the coolest 65 hotels in the world’ while the Times Travellers’ Magazine named it ‘One of the world’s top 100 hotels’.
Take up today’s Big Deal with Tigerlily and you can indulge in a stay in a classic double room, enjoy dinner in the restaurant and sip on their mixologists’ famous cocktails.
All the ingredients for a perfect Edinburgh city break.
Just ten minutes from Waverley Train Station and a twenty minute taxi journey from Edinburgh airport, Tigerlily has 33 individually designed boutique rooms that make for some of the most intimate and luxurious living spaces in the city.
This offer is for an overnight stay, Sunday to Friday, in a classic double room. Friday night stays have a £25 supplement.
At Tigerlily, they believe it’s the little details that make the biggest difference which is why all the rooms feature complimentary organic fruit, bespoke art works and fresh flowers.
You can also look forward to cool wallpapers and fabrics, polished hardwood floors, duck-down quilts, sumptuous pillows and luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets.
There are also plenty of toys to play with from widescreen plasma televisions with an extensive range of digital channels; pre-loaded iPods and salon quality hair dryers and GHD hair straighteners. WiFi is complimentary.
Tigerlily is a hip city centre hangout. As well as a full Scottish breakfast in the morning, you will enjoy £20 to spend in the hotel’s restaurant.
The exact dishes on the menu will change regularly but typical starters might be the salt and pepper squid with Vietnamese salad and rice wine vinegar or the Scottish game terrine served with a quince purée and caramelised onion toasts.
Popular main courses include the pan-fried sea bass with Jerusalem artichoke and apple purée, smoked bacon, red chard and green beans or the Ayrshire pork belly with Maris Piper mash, cider and a caramelised onion sauce.
Desserts to die for include the sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and ice cream or the warm chocolate and cherry pot with ice cream.
Definitely a place in which to see and be seen, the bar areas in Tigerlily are very popular. Of course, style without substance is useless.
Fortunately, Tigerlily’s bar staff are some of the hottest cocktail shakers in town and this offer includes two of their inventive creations.
This gift from Edinburgh’s Tigerlily is a winner.
The hotel is located in the heart of the city’s new town, close to all the major shops and attractions, making it the ideal base for exploring the capital.
