I’ve had these photos almost year, can you believe? A weekend stay that we had at the fabulous, bijou, boutique hotel called Tigerlily in Edinburgh.
We went up for our wedding anniversary and I just had to save these for my blog. I had been procrastinating you may remember if you’ve been in with me from the start but better late than never!
I make no apologies that this post is picture heavy. I still drool over their loveliness quite often on my phone and vow to try it again as soon as we can.
I lived in Edinburgh for a year when I got my first job and so I have very fond memories of it and have tried to go back there whenever I can. I’m lucky that Mr Bbed loves Edinburgh as much as I do.
So .. here we go …
Our Room For The Two Nights
One Of The Many Cosy Areas In The Bar
And This Is Me Feeling Very Relaxed After One Or Two Cocktails!
This was another venue that is owned by the group called Montpeliers just a 10 minute stroll from Tigerlily in an area of the city called Bruntsfield. We enjoyed a late afternoon snack here before we departed on the Sunday. Very chic!
And this is a photo that I can’t actually believe I took and it was raining! It’s an area of the city called Grassmarket and is full of quaint pubs, bars and shops. It’s lovely to meander along which we did interspersed with a few Guinness pit stops along the way of course!
The great thing about Edinburgh is that it’s so easy to get around. The hotel is on historic George Street only 5 minutes from the train station. Everywhere you look there are cocktail bars and what Mr Bbed calls ‘posh shops’. One mustn’t forget Harvey Nic’s must one? One call you must make is The Grill Room at The Dome. It’s glass dome is a wonder to behold and I’ve tried to give you a glimpse of it’s splendiferousness here .. you find yourself gazing up constantly.
I’ve checked Tigerlily’s website and they still have the same offer we stayed on the ‘Winter Warmer’ — £150 per night including a contribution to an evening meal in the restaurant. We took advantage of this both evenings because it really was value for money. The staff are all cool and hip but were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. It had a buzzing, vibrant atmosphere and of all age groups. Highly recommended.
Let me know in the comments if you’ve stayed or where you would recommend in Edinburgh — I’d love to hear from you.
