A view of Edinburgh

Book one of Hotels.com’s family hotels in Edinburgh and you have direct access to the world-famous Scottish capital. With its medieval Old Town, cobbled alleyways and Edinburgh Castle standing proudly above the city at the top of the Royal Mile, there is no shortage of things for children and grown-ups alike to explore and discover. The city is famously surrounded by a chain of dormant volcanoes, and a walk to the top of Arthur’s Seat in Holyrood Park – Edinburgh’s highest point at 251 metres - gives great views across the city. Holyrood Park is also home to a large, preserved fort; the 15th century St Anthony’s Chapel; Salisbury Crags – the rocky slopes and cliff faces which dominate Edinburgh’s skyline; and Duddingston Loch. Refuel after your day of sightseeing and walking with some of Edinburgh’s famous buttery shortbread, and of course, Haggis if you’re feeling brave!

Tips for making the most of your family trip to Edinburgh

When you book with Hotels.com you can be completely confident that you are choosing from the widest range of family hotels in Edinburgh as well as securing the very best prices in the travel industry. And you can also rely on our vast knowledge and expertise in planning family holidays to ensure you know the places to go. Children will love to explore Edinburgh Castle – time your visit to see (and hear!) the firing of Mons Meg cannon, one of the most famous medieval cannons in the world, at 1pm Monday - Saturday. See Edinburgh from a different perspective all together by taking a trip underground at Real Mary King’s Close. Costumed characters guide you through a warren of hidden streets buried deep under the Royal Mile and frozen in time since the 17th century. And to escape the hustle and bustle, visit the native Shetland Ponies which roam free in Braehead Park, just outside of the city, or see the UK’s only Giant Pandas at Edinburgh Zoo.
