Best Western Kings Manor Hotel

100 Milton Rd E, Edinburgh EH15 2NP, UK – 0844 387 6081

Pleasant twin room with slightly smaller bed than expected but comfortable nonetheless. Good spa and pool area with jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. Would have given it Five Stars if the spa booking had been taken properly, however they did not take my telephone number at the time of booking and one of the Therapists was unavailable so had to reduce treatment time. This was my hen do, so I was as you would expect very disappointed by this, however the treatments received were offered free of charge. The Therapist and reception staff were all apologetic and lovely. Did not dine or drink here so cannot comment on restaurant or bar. Would definitely visit again.

Extremely helpful staff. Rooms are a good size and very comfortable with lots of facilities (iron, hairdryer, TV, phone, desk and seating area in the room) The room I was given even had a playstation in it which I was very surprised to find. The hotel is also very environmentally conscious. On the downside the only negatives were, the bed was huge although this was two beds joined together which me and my partner never enjoy as you always get the gap in the middle of the bed. The room was also very warm, not that that is usually a complaint. Overall a very nice and well looked after hotel.

Ravelston House

182 N High St, Musselburgh EH21 6BH, UK – 0131 665 2478

I've stayed in 5* hotels that aren't as good s this hotel! A real gem. If I'd stayed in this hotel at the beginning of my Scotland trip I don't think I would have moved any further. Food /restaurant is brilliant.

Great freshly cooked food in nice surroundings with excellent service. Pensioner menu excellent but limited. If you decide on the fish in the main menu be very very hungry because it is xxxL in size.

Rockville Hotel

2 Joppa Pans, Edinburgh EH15 2HF, UK – 0131 669 5418

I've only ever been there for drinks as a resting place after my wife has taken me for a long walk! Very pleasant surroundings and the staff are very attentive. It's a nice place.

Great place for a meal and not too expensive Highly recommended

Pubs, Gastro Pubs and Bars

The Sheep Heid Inn

43-45 The Causeway, Edinburgh EH15 3QA, UK – 0131 661 7974

This place is lovely. It is quite a distance is you are coming from the city centre by foot but well worth the walk. Food was lovely, drinks were great and prices weren't too bad either. We had live entertainment outside whilst we were there as well as some lovely barbecue food. One other thing to add, it's also claimed to be the oldest pub in Scotland so is noteworthy stop off point for any Scottish trip.

Such a legendary place, amazing decor, really cosy, a hidden gem. But my god does the menu let it down. I've been about 3 times lately and the food always sounds fantastic on paper, but so disappointing in reality. The food really needs to sit at the same level as the pubs historic meaning and reputation. It's a shame as its my local, but it's never my first choice.

Guild of Foresters

40 Portobello High St, Edinburgh EH15 1DA, UK – 0131 669 2750

Food and drink reasonably priced. Good selection of drinks at the bar. Food is tasty and substantial. Atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed.

The perfect place! You are hit by the outstanding décor on walking in, and then you continue to be hit by the outstanding staff, beer and food and the atmosphere that wraps it all up like the cosiest hand made crochet blanket ever. I'm in love with a pub.

Travel Super Market search and compare prices for hotels all over the world. Could also be useful for you. I This said I was told by a hotelier that the way to get cheap rooms is to ring up the week before and ask for the weekend rate. You can usually get an absolute bargain as they will trying to book all the rooms that they have not sold! Could be worth a try!

If you would like something truly different you might like to have a look at Airbnb. These are mostly B and Bs provided by people on a very informal basis. The may have a spare room, a yurt, a cottage or a barge with space they can receive guests for a night or a month! The website is highly professional. You can really see what you are going to get. Very well worth a look. Airbnb also show 'conventional' B&Bs as well. Enjoy!

Holyrood Park

Queen's Dr, Edinburgh EH8 8HG, UK – 0131 652 8150

Great place for a nature escape in the city. The highest peak (Arthur's seat) is great for views of the city and a nice climb. The craggs (sharp cliffs facing the centre of Edinburgh) are also a great walk with beautiful views. Yet the smaller peak closer the shore direction is where I spend most my time. It is peaceful, generally with just a few locals walking dogs or running. And you can divert from the paths just a little bit, to find a secluded spot. I often head up here to sit, draw and relax.

Great for walks and short hikes. Wonderful views of the city and the sea (weather permitting ;) ) very windy at the top, so bring a jacket even on a warm day. Many different paths to explore which give you very different views/experiences!
