Birthday Weekend is Booked - Edinburgh here we come !!

After spending hours and hours trying to find a weekend away for my birthday in March, it is now finally all booked. All through one website too. 
I always search through as you can book flights and hotels. I booked EasyJet flights very easily and then after two days of searching for the best value hotel, I booked the ibis Edinburgh Centre Royal Mile – Hunter Square. 
Booking.Com has excellent reviews for it, stating that it has the best location, fantastic staff and really good facilities, aswell as it being extremely clean and comfortable. 

The Ibis is actually under the umbrella of Accor Hotels, so I am very happy with my choice - its funky and modern in the Old Town of Edinburgh, and just a 10 minute to the castle and 5 minutes to everything else. It is on a high street with bars and restaurants, so a very short stumble home in the evening. It's a three star hotel, so it has everything that we need for the weekend. 

Here take a look

What do you think ? You can have a look at their direct website below.

So all I need to do now is sit back and relax and wait until we go. I actually can't remember the last time myself and the husband had a whole weekend to ourselves...infact, I think its been 9 years. We've had nights, and he's had a few weekends and weeks away but I've only ever had one night away from the children. Oh my ..... you could actually call this our minimoon. Which I find very amusing, considering we've almost been married 6 years. 

So....this weekend is well needed and actually deserved. 

Have you been to Edinburgh ? Feel free to comment or email any suggestions of places or restaurants to visit.
