A recent survey named Edinburgh as the second best place to live in the UK.
As any Edinburgh resident will happily tell you, probably at length, it’s a great place to live and a mighty fine city to visit.
Come and experience all that Scotland’s capital has to offer with today’s Big Deal at the cosmopolitan Radisson Blu.
Royal Mile location
With an excellent location 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.
The offer is for two people to stay for 1 or 2 nights in a twin or double room.
As well as a glass of Champagne on arrival, guests will enjoy the hotel’s super breakfast buffet in the morning. It’s the perfect preparation for a day spent sightseeing in Edinburgh or scouring the capital’s shops – Harvey Nicks and the designer boutiques of Multree Walk are only a short walk from the Radisson Blu.
Saturday night stays will be charged a £20 supplement.
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 2pm and complimentary parking – particularly useful in Edinburgh.
The hotel is only a ten minute walk or five minute taxi ride from Waverley station if arriving by train.
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.
Many guests choose to take dinner in the hotel’s 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.
If you choose to eat out, Edinburgh has more Michelin stars than any city in the UK outside of London. Of course, it also has many less starry but equally as inviting alternative dining options, not to mention some of the finest bars in the country.

The Radisson Blu on the Royal Mile has no shortage of fans. This is what a recent guest thought of her experiences:
‘Will be back. We stayed here over a weekend and had a fantastic time. The hotel is perfectly located on the Royal Mile with some amazing restaurants and bars within walking distance. Really friendly staff and great hotel room…fantastic stay and will definitely stay there again when we next visit Edinburgh.’
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 never fails to put a huge grin on my face.
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 December to the end of April 2014, this would make a fantastic Christmas gift.
