If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen that I was in Edinburgh at the weekend. As you know I love to travel, so I thought I would share with you where I stayed! Locke hotels is a small chain of aparthotels located in London (Leman Locke) , Manchester (Whitworth Locke) and Edinburgh (Eden Locke).
I flew into Edinburgh Airport and the hotel was only a 25 minute drive, it’s super easy to get to. If you’re getting the train it’s only a 10 minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley station.
Eden Locke hotel is a Georgian townhouse located on George Street in the heart of the new town. It’s within walking distance from the cities major attractions such as Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street as well as being near to lots of bars, shops and restaurants. The location is great as you have everything on your door step! I thought it would be a little noisy at night-time but it was extremely tranquil and I had such a great sleep.
The interior is definitely a major selling point of this hotel – everywhere is so instagrammable. The rooms are finished to such a high spec and are extremely modern and sophisticated. I stayed in the Mezzanine Studio Apartment which looked out on to George Street – the room had huge windows and high ceilings which made it very bright and airy.
The rooms are a decent size each with a mini lounge area, corner sofa and kitchenette. There is plenty of wardrobe and storage space in the room which is ideal. They also have an ironing board / iron , hairdryer, robes, slippers and ear plugs. All rooms also have complimentary WiFi and a Smart TV.
All of the apartments come equipped with a kitchenette which has everything you need including an oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and kettle. They even leave tea, coffee, milk and porridge pots in the kitchen so you have everything you need.
There is also a cafe located on the ground floor which serves fresh coffee, juices and home-made pastries as well as cocktails. This is great if you’re on the go and just need to grab something on your way. I loved the decor of this space, very cool!
If you are visiting Edinburgh, I would highly recommend staying at Eden Locke. I hope to come back very soon….
