The best Edinburgh hotels with parking

Advice

There’s a reason why Alexander McCall Smith novels set in Edinburgh feature characters losing their cars. Finding parking can be fraught for residents, never mind visitors, which is why you’ll be advised to either leave your car at home or use one of the long-stay park and ride facilities on the city outskirts. But for those who need, or want their own personal transport there are plenty of good hotels who can take away the pain of city centre parking. And you’ll rest easy knowing you’ll be able to find your car in the morning. These are the best Edinburgh hotels with parking (you’re welcome).

Prestonfield House

Edinburgh, Scotland

8
Telegraph expert rating

Set in in lush grounds on the south-eastern outskirts of Edinburgh, Prestonfield House is worth the 10-minute drive from Prince’s Street. It’s one of the swankiest country house hotels imaginable – picture rococo interiors with velvet-hung four poster beds, silk toile wallpaper and silver chariot baths. Spend your time exploring the 20-acre private park at the foot of Arthur’s Seat, strolling to the ruins of nearby Craigmillar Castle, or feasting on Scottish cuisine at the candle-lot Rhubarb, one of Edinburgh’s favourite gothic-style restaurants. Staying overnight is recommended if you plan to indulge in the 800-plus list of wines. Parking is free for guests.

The Radisson Blu Hotel, Edinburgh

Edinburgh, Scotland

Telegraph expert rating

Don’t be fooled by this hotel’s 16th-century exterior – inside it’s contemporary all the way with a small spa, gym and pool, and a family-friendly ambience. It’s a slightly cool mid-range brand, with sharp-looking bedrooms – picture charcoal and white themes with splashes of acid yellow – and welcome extra touches such as a pillow menu. It’s a great option for a short stay, close to many of Edinburgh’s key attractions, on the famous Royal Mile. The handy on-site city centre parking is the cherry on top. Parking is charged at £12.50 for 24 hours.

Edinburgh, Scotland

Telegraph expert rating

An Edinburgh landmark for more than a century, The Balmoral was built as a railway hotel and is a prime example of Victorian Renaissance architecture. It’s beautifully luxurious – it’s the kind of place you’ll be greeted by kilted doormen – but there’s nothing old-fashioned about this quietly elegant Rocco Forte Hotels flagship. Luxurious bedrooms, a Michelin-starred restaurant, lavish afternoon teas and relaxing spa await guests, who will be treated to some of the best service in town. Adding to this excellence is the valet parking service, which is available for £35 a night.
