An Overnight Stay in the City of Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a city that should be on your list of places to visit while in Scotland; a great place full of charm and fascinating history. On a recent visit there, I stayed at the Sheraton Grand Hotel – the hotel is in an excellent location, only a short walk from the restaurants, bars, shops and the sights.

The highlight of my stay was a visit to the Thermal Suite located in One Spa at the hotel; you are able to enjoy the different spa experiences in the thermal suite that include a gently heated Laconium, the blissfully scented Aroma Grotto, the warming Tepidarium and the Rock & Bio saunas. You also have access to the Hammams, the rain forest showers and the rooftop Hydropool. There is an extra cost for use of the Thermal Suite – for a resident to utilize the Suite, it will cost an additional £25.00. I would say it was definitely worth the additional amount, it is a great relaxing experience and I would recommend this to anyone.

After an afternoon spent rejuvinating in the spa, I visited Edinburgh Castle which offers an interesting history and is always a ‘must-visit’ while in Edinburgh. I enjoyed drinks and dinner at The Living Room located in George Street, a short walk from the hotel. Excellent food; classic dishes that I would call home comfort food.

The evening was finished with a night at The Stand Comedy Club – never a disappointment and great end to an excellent night in Edinburgh.
