Christmas Gift Guide 2019 – Hotel Stays

I hope you enjoyed my previous unisex fragrance Christmas gift guide. The next part of my Christmas gift guide is Hotel Stays. One gift I love to receive at Christmas (or at any time of the year) is a surprise night away in a hotel, even if it’s within the city I stay in. Edinburgh has an abundance of stunning hotels catering for everyone’s needs and I have been lucky enough to stay in some of them. Staying in a hotel for the night allows you to escape day to day life and create memories that will last a lifetime. So go on, treat your partner, friends or family to a lovely evening in the Scottish capital and if you’re finding it difficult to choose, here are my top favourite hotel choices.

Lane Hotel – Bruntsfield Boutique


Situated in the exclusive area of Morningside in south Edinburgh is The Lane Hotel; an exquisite boutique hotel owned by Mark and Amy Kerr. Housed in two beautifully renovated Victorian buildings, there is a choice of individually designed classic, deluxe and luxury rooms to choose from. This small but impeccably formed hotel makes the perfect base for a city trip, whether you are a tourist, business traveller or simply need a little treat to escape the hustle of everyday life.

Originally constructed as three separate townhouses in 1872, the 19th Century property has witnessed many transformations over the years. It wasn’t until 1998 that it was turned into the lavish Bonham Hotel, introducing the city to the boutique hotel concept.
