Exclusive! Big Deal fans in dinner, bed and breakfast shocker in luxury Edinburgh hotel!
Inside today’s super soaraway Big Deal, we bring you the inside story of how to:
Enjoy an overnight stay at the exclusive Fraser Suites.
Eat in the boutique’s upmarket bistro
Have a Royal Mile sightseeing romp
OK. OK. We’ll stop with the tabloid headlines. It’s just that today’s Big Deal has an inky twist.
The offer is for an overnight stay at Fraser Suites Edinburgh on St Giles Street, just off the Royal Mile.
Years ago, the street was Scotland’s equivalent to Fleet Street. Among many other papers, The Edinburgh Daily Mail and The Herald used to have offices there.
These days, life in the Fraser Suites boutique hotel is less about frantic deadlines and much more about relaxation.
All rooms and suites feature designer furniture, plush carpeting, kitchenettes, Villeroy & Boch Bathrooms with rain showers and a host of other features. Depending on your choice of room or suite, you can enjoy fireplaces, original wood panelling, historical stained glass windowns (unearthed during renovation), twillled silk curtains and bespoke paintings commissioned from the Edinburgh College of Art. Just some of the modern day essentials iPod docking stations, broadband internet and luxury bathroom amenities.
Only a five minute walk from Edinburgh Castle, the hotel is ideally located off the Royal Mile to explore Edinburgh’s historical attractions as well as its vibrant galleries, theatres, concert halls and museums.
The property features 24 hour reception and concierge, a gymnasium and a restaurant called, naturally, The Broadsheet Bistro.
The kitchen specialises in seasonal dishes such as starters of pan fried sea bass with gooseberry compote or a chicken and wild mushroom terrine served with pickled shallot and wholemeal toast.
Typical main courses from the regularly changing menu might be the stuffed quail with Scotch egg, stir fried vegetables and chunky chips or the roast rump of lamb with fondant potatoes and curried lentils.
