The author Alexander McCall Smith has said that Edinburgh is ‘a city of shifting light, of changing skies, of sudden vistas’.
See Edinburgh in a new light with today’s Big Deal on an overnight stay for two at Brooks Hotel on Grove Street in the West End.
With its old architecture, mysterious wynds and cobbled streets, Edinburgh is a very romantic city and this offer could be used as a very romantic getaway.
Given a top-to-bottom refurbishment in recent years, 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. 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 WiFi, 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.
The attractive courtyard offers the perfect place to relax among the flowerpots with an ice cold drink from the well-stocked honesty bar, provided it’s not too chilly.
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:
’...The staff were great letting us use the fantastic lounge for a meeting and keeping us in coffee. Room was clean and comfortable with a desk. Shower was great and full Scottish breakfast first class! The team assisted with an urgent delivery on my behalf and helped printing boarding passes etc. Just spot on in every way! Thank you Brooks Hotel.’
‘Had a night’s stay during the Fringe festival. Check in was quick. Nice clean room with tea and coffee. Hairdryer provided and toiletries. Breakfast in the morning was very tasty. Buffet style cereals, yoghurt and fruit too. Would stay again.’
This Big Deal would be ideal for a romantic city break or a great excuse to stay over after seeing a show or catching a concert in the capital.
It would make a brilliant gift for a loved one.
