If you’re looking for unusual places to stay in Edinburgh you won’t be disappointed. Whether it’s city centre, farmhouse style or even a wonderful inn on the side of a beautiful canal, the city has it all.


City Centre Apartment

Whilst maintaining many of its period features, the neutral décor adds a contemporary feel and more than a hint of luxury is brought with crisp linens, an indoor Jacuzzi bath and a private chef (subject to availability).

The property is a short walk from the attractions of the City Centre and the bohemian Stockbridge area, with a plethora of restaurants, shops, pubs and a Sunday market.

Four Sisters Boatel

Close to the city centre, the Four Sisters Boatel is a purpose built static houseboat, which sleeps up to 6 guests with the convenience of a small supermarket and Italian restaurant (Zizzi) practically on the doorstep.

As you’d expect the accommodation is a little cramped, but the lack of space is made up for by the cosiness inside and feeling of space as soon as you pop your head through the hatch.
