I once stayed in a Premier Inn for a week when on a training course for work and it really was nice, just like Lenny says. Staff were lovely, rooms were great and beds were so comfy. So I have found that the Premier Inn are a brand that I can trust.
I would choose the Princes Street location as they have great views of Edinburgh Castle and 'The Kitchen' restaurant looks good too. They also have a score of 4.5 / 5 from their customers so far which you can's argue with!
Now onto how I would spend my 48 hours and 500 fantasy pounds at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe ...
Having never been before I have only been able to have a look online at what the festival has to offer and as the largest arts festival in the world there is A LOT!
In all honesty if I had 48 hours and £500 I would probably start out getting one of the famous rickshaws into the city centre and having a walk around to see what shows and delights the festival had to offer. I would live spur of the moment not planning too much and see what the place has to throw at me. The freedom of letting it wash over me would be exhilarating.
The Fringe website seems to offer three main thoughts - each of which I love...
- Be Inspired
- Get Carried Away
- Enjoy Every Second
I've discovered that Edinburgh has more Michelin starred restaurants than any other city in the UK outside of London so if I had the time and money I think we would have to stop into one of them. We have never dined anywhere with a Michelin star so it would be a real experience for us. As well as that I would make sure I found some more down to earth Scottish cuisine, maybe not haggis (as a recovering veggie!!) but I've never tried a deep fried Mars bar either! Yum?
Fingers crossed that some of my Edinburgh Fantasy comes true one day.
