Edinburgh makes for a fantastic family trip destination and there are plenty of great hotels to choose from in this famous old city. Home to the largest performing arts festival in the world (the Edinburgh Fringe) at the start of August, the population of the city doubles during festival time, so beware hotels can be scarce at this time of the year! Luckily Edinburgh has a lot of choice and many of the city’s hotels offer great family facilities and services. If you’re planning on seeing the sights and staying close to the hub of things then you can’t go wrong with Best Western’s Edinburgh City Hotel. Based in the heart of the Old Town with many of the great attractions, theatres, bars and restaurants nearby this is a clean, comfortable Victorian hotel with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. A little further out of town is the Braid Hills Hotel which is in a spectacular location offering fantastic views across the city, the Firth of Forth as well as the Fife hills beyond.
