Are you looking for a cheap hotel deal for your stag (or hen) trip to Edinburgh in 2015? Well I have a couple of beauties here for you. Both offer great room rates, both are very stylish and both will put you bang in the heart of Edinburgh’s lively nightlife scene. Oh, and did I mention that both have their own bars, which happen to be some of the best bars in the city for stag groups.
So which hotels are there? Well, they are the Grassmarket Hotel and Stay Central Hotel.
- The Grassmarket Hotel was totally refurbished a couple of years back, and was transformed from a chap and shabby hotel, to a cheap and super cool destination hotel. Set right on the corner of Edinburgh’s legendary Grassmarket, guests won’t have to venture far to experience the lively bars and superb restaurants that the Old Town of Edinburgh has in numbers. The Grassmarket Hotel is conjoined with the legendary Biddy Mulligans Irish Bar. Biddy’s is a venue that most stag groups will visit whilst in the city, and rightly so, the venue is bouncing at all times.
Back to the hotel itself, The Grassmarket Hotel rooms are wickedly kitted out in contemporary Scottish designs and full of smart wee gadgets and space saving kit. There are loads of quad rooms available too so you can drive down those per person rates for your stag weekend. You’ll love the room experience at this great base of a hotel.
But don’t get me wrong, this hotel is not all about stag and hen groups. The hotel is fantastically family friendly too, and looks after hundreds of corporate guests throughout the year.
* Stay Central Hotel has been refurbished even more recently than The Grassmarket hotel and is looking extremely swish. The BIG plus for stag and hen groups is that the hotel has rooms to sleep six, which makes your per person cost a breeze for your group members. The second big plus is that the hotel is located right on the Cowgate so you’re only a short walk from all the brilliant bars, nightclubs and restaurants in the Old Town of Edinburgh – don’t bother getting a taxi anywhere around here, just walk. Thirdly, the rooms are cool and a pleasure to hang out in and get ready in before the big night out. Fourthly, the hotel has its own restaurant downstairs where you’ll be served up magnificent breakfasts, dinners and teas.
Stay Central Hotel is right next to the lively Three Sisters Bar, one of the city’s best known bars – best known for being a magic night out, and a great place to catch football, rugby or curling matched on the telly (there are lots of tellies, many of the enormous).
The beauty (or should I say one of the beauties) of Edinburgh in recent years is that standards at cheaper hotels have risen tremendously, whilst room rates have remained pretty much where they are, so you get a lot more bang for your buck. The Grassmarket Hotel and Stay Central reflect this very pleasant trend – well done guys.
