    I'm thinking of booking a 2 or 3 night mid week break in December to Edinburgh. I want to get all festive and have something to look forward to and a few nights away from it all will be great.

    Has anyone ever been to Edinburgh in December? What's it like?

    Does anyone know of any good hotels in the city centre?

    Any advice welcome :D

    OMG :shock: The price of some of these hotels is shocking...I only wanna stay a couple of nights not buy the place.

    I'm going to do a load of research tonight while Hubby is out watching football. With a glass of Baileys of course =P~

    AG - Can I ask you a very strange question, are there any large cemetaries in Edinburgh centre? I have an absolute fear of them at night.
    Blame Michael Jackson. I know I'm wierd :oops:

    I was thinking along the lines of £200 in total for 2/3 nights.

    I've found a nice hotel www.inverleithhotel.co.uk only it's a bit of a walk from Princes St in the centre. About 20mins I'd say.
    That's £158 for 2 nights or £237 for 3 nights with a 4 poster room.

    There was another hotel that looked really nice The Ballantrae but the reviews are terrible, only £180 for 3 nights. One of the reviews the guests had their room changed whilst they were out and no-one knew where there luggage was and then the hotel lost the room key so if anyone had found it they could have walked in and robbed or murdered them :shock:
    Another guest says the Porter opened their door at 4.00am to let a drunk guy in who said it was his room. They were in bed (The Perv).

    So will keep shopping and see if I can get something classy but closer.

    My DH will tell you I'm hard to please :lol:

    Thanks Girls

    Not yet, I'm quite keen on the Inverleith Hotel but it's about 15/20 walk from the centre.

    I'm going to get DH to sit with me Saturday Afternoon and book something.

    I'll let you know what I book, ooh I'm so excited...it's nearly christmas :happydance:

    Thanks for all the replies girls and boys of course.
