Here at TLE we love winter time, there is nothing better than finding a nice bar with a log fire and warming up with a glass of red wine. Edinburgh is the TLE base, and what a base to be in! With more boutique hotels and 5 star accommodation than most cities, anyone coming to the city for an overnight or long weekend is spoilt for choice. So here we bring our collection of the 6 bolt holes in Edinburgh worth warming up this winter in.
1. The Glasshouse
The Glasshouse hotel is located right in the heart of Edinburgh’s city centre, which makes it perfect for sightseeing, shopping, dining and nightlife. Most of the spacious suites include floor to ceiling windows to provide you with a breathtaking view of the city right from your bed. The Glasshouse is full of contemporary art, which makes the space feel more like a home away from home than a hotel.

2. The Bonham Hotel
The Bonham hotel has just 49 rooms available, which ensures that every guest that comes to stay is able to receive personalised attention from start to finish. Although the Bonham Hotel is convenient to many major attractions in Edinburgh, it is located in a quieter section of the West End. This is ideal for those who simply want to relax, escape and get away from the routine and bustle of everyday life. Be sure to try the Restaurant at the Bonham, an incredible eatery serving up beautifully-plated gourmet French cuisine.

3. Hillside by VieAmhor
For a true getaway, consider a luxury private apartment rather than a hotel room. VieAmhor provides a variety of luxurious apartments to call home for a few nights or even a few weeks with the Hillside residence being the jewel in their crown.
4. Hotel du Vin
For a hotel with some impressive character, the Hotel du Vin perfectly fits the bill. Once an asylum in the heart of the city, the boutique hotel is now home to just 47 incredibly decorated suites and rooms for guests. You will love the location (in the heart of the old town), the wine cellar, the cigar room and the amazing staff.

The rooms at the Scotsman hotel are luxurious and designed to put guests completely at ease, but you will also appreciate the incredible amenities on site. The hotel boasts a large fitness centre, spa, screening room, business centre, bar, restaurant and brasserie.
