Events in Edinburgh
There are four types of occasion which cause all accommodation prices in Edinburgh to broadly double. These are Hogmanay (New Year), Rugby Internationals, the Festivals in August, and the Edinburgh Marathon Festival. The late September weekend can also be a time of extremely high demand. Other common restrictions at these times are three or even four day minimum stays. All other times of the year are price-sensitive in Edinburgh, but these should be the only times when it is difficult to find reasonably priced accommodation.
Given our location it's perhaps not surprising that we fill quickly for Hogmanay, we are one of a very limited number of hotels and guesthouses that are genuinely within walking distance of the big street party. Taxis are plentiful normally in Edinburgh, but with 100,000 people looking to get home with no bus services running, the maths isn't pretty on how long you could be waiting, and even if you do get a taxi; you will need to have had a few stiff drinks during the celebrations to handle the special fares charged.
Most guesthouses and hotels either serve some form of breakfast at the normal time or not at all on January 1st (despite how much you are paying!)- this is evidenced by the brisk trade in cooked breakfasts that takes place in local cafe's from 'lunchtime' onwards (when a £7 breakfast becomes £12!!). At the Valentine we offer unlimited filled rolls (sausage, bacon, egg) later in the morning in addition to the usual full breakfast options at a more reasonable hour.
Maps and a Street-party ticket for every guest can be included in our special Hogmanay packages (please ask for Street party tickets when booking). In order that we can avoid charging a vast amount for the 31st December alone, we set a package which entitles you to stay from your chosen arrival night up to the 3rd of January if you want. Up to four nights are included within the package: in addition up to 4 extra nights are available before or after your package nights for just £10 per person per night! (subject to availability).
All our rooms are individual and each has its own Hogmanay deal. Email us for details.
* Full Scottish Breakfast included on all mornings of stay, with special arrangements on January 1st. No maid service on January 1.
our rooms are individual and each has its own Rugby weekend deal.
In comparing quotes always remember location! Valentine is the closest Guesthouse to the Castle in the very heart of Edinburgh. The finest of full Scottish breakfasts is included every morning of your stay, entirely cooked to order, this is by no means standard in all guesthouses!!
