Hotel for Edinburgh Tattoo


I'm looking for somewhere to stay when we come to see the Military tattoo. My thoughts are maybe just to spend a night or two in Edinburgh and then stay somewhere out of town for a few days to see some more of Scotland.

Does anyone have an suggestions of reasonably priced accommodation that is easy to get to and from the tattoo from and also for other sightseeing

1. Re: Hotel for Edinburgh Tattoo

The Tattoo is only one of the many large scale festival and arts events in the city in August. http://www.edinburghfestivals.co.uk/ so all accommodation is at a premium and many places set a minimum 2 or 3 night stay. You could get loads of recommendations of hotels here and in the review sections only to find that they are all fully booked at this stage- many get booked a year in advance! Therefore at this late stage I would recommend you use a booking site like www.laterooms.com or www.trivago.com to show you where there is availability for your dates and take it from there. Good luck.

< reasonably priced accommodation >

Not in August in Edinburgh - it's by far the busiest time of the year in Edinburgh with several festivals (each AT LEAST the size of any normal festival) occurring at the same time.
