Why Edinburgh Holiday Lets are Better Than Hotels!
Gone are the days where the only option was to stay in a hotel when you went on holiday. Thankfully, over the years there’s been a move towards new styles of lodging and this includes the exciting possibility of holiday lets! If you’re planning to visit Edinburgh, keep scrolling to find out why we believe staying in one of Dickins’ Edinburgh holiday lets is a much better way to experience Edinburgh rather than opting to stay in a hotel!
1. Experience Edinburgh Like a Local
Imagine waking up in Edinburgh, in a beautiful and comfortable home knowing that the day holds boundless exciting possibilities and adventures for you. After you’ve enjoyed your morning cuppa and are ready to head out to explore the city, you’ll be walking out the front door of a real home and not a generic hotel reception! What a great way to start your day as a traveller and not just a tourist. Also, we think there’s something special about knowing you have your very own Edinburgh home, however briefly, to return to after a day of wandering down cobbled lanes and soaking up the city’s history.
2. Bring The Kids (and even the Dog!)
Edinburgh is the greenest city in the UK and with a range of family-friendly attractions, it makes a wonderful destination to visit as a family and we have a range of fabulous family friendly holiday accommodation. Similarly, there’s no need to leave your beloved pooch behind as we have a fantastic selection of dog friendly holiday apartments too!
3. Cook up a Storm and Relax!
There can be something very indulgent about enjoying a meal out or ordering room service, but, if that is your only option the treat can quickly turn into a bit of a chore. By staying in one of our short term lets, you’ll have a lot more space and you’ll be able to make meals in a well-equipped kitchen without having to eat sitting on your bed or get dressed up every evening to go out for dinner. Plus, if you’re here with your family you can make your children the food they like and once they’re in bed you can relax in your sitting room.
One of the best parts about staying in one of our gorgeous Edinburgh holiday lets is you are staying in someone’s home, which in and of itself is unique. You can expect a homeliness that is often sorely lacking in hotels as they are built to accommodate everyone, which can make them bland. As we manage a large selection of beautiful homes, there is a range of styles to choose from, as each holiday homes reflects the personality of their owner and their tastes.
5. Peace of Mind
Holidays are meant to be memorable for the right reasons, so there’s nothing worse than the sinking feeling you get when you read a text message from your Airbnb owner when you get off the plane saying that their boiler is broken and they are going to have to cancel your booking.
When you stay with Dickins, you can relax from the moment you’ve made the booking because if a problem arises before or during your stay, we’ll be on the case to resolve it quickly and if that’s not possible, then we’ll move you to another of our quality holiday apartments in Edinburgh. We pride ourselves on being great problems solvers.
6. The Freedom to Entertain
If you are staying in Edinburgh for several weeks or months and fancy spending time with friends, you’ll have the option to invite them over to your home, open a bottle of wine and cook for them from the fully equipped kitchen. Not to mention several of our Edinburgh holiday lets have a real fire, so you’ll be able to curl up and relax on a cosy couch with a glass of wine and enjoy a wonderful evening with friends.
7. Pay Less than a Hotel when staying in any of Dickins’ Edinburgh Holiday Lets
Lastly, as well as all the great reasons we’ve listed above, we’re sure you’ll be delighted to hear that when you stay in any Dickins Edinburgh holiday lets you’ll always pay less than a hotel of the equivalent standard!
