Spring Time

April 21st, 2012 · No Comments · edinburgh

The Easter holidays have flown past here at Edinburgh Festival Apartments we were so busy with all different kinds of guests coming from all over the world. We had a lovely couple from Venezuela staying in our apartment in the Royal Mile for a few days whilst they explored the city including taking in one or Hidden and Haunted Ghost Tours beneath the city vaults and sampling some unique Scotch Whisky at the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society followed by a superb lunch.

In our luxury penthouse we had a lovely family from Italy who chose this apartment in the Haymarket area so that they had easy access to the city but also could hire a car (car parking is provided) and explore the Highlands and North on day trips. They also took in a visit to Edinburgh Zoo to see the Pandas, but remember if you are doing so its a good idea to book your tickets in advance as they are still a very popular day out and spaces are limited whilst the Pandas settle in to their new home in Edinburgh.

We had many visitors from China over the holidays who stayed in several of our apartments and also our townhouse which during the week we can provide en-suite rooms at a fantastic room rate of only £25 per person a night. Unfortunately we have no rooms available at the weekends  because the townhouse is so popular with our stag and hen parties we are fully booked most of the year.  So if you are looking to organise a hen or stag party for next year make sure you book as soon as you can – a deposit of 15% which usually is about £20 each will secure the date and means you at least have a base before you start sorting out what you all want to do.

Every weekend we have all different groups of excited girls, predominately dressed in hot pink with fluffy antennas ! The girls most popular choice of weekend usually consists of a girls night in on the Friday – where our hot sexy butler in the buff comes along for an hour to pour drinks for the ladies and more often than not they ask for “Condor” to be dressed in a kilt – no top of course!

Then on the Saturday many opt for our Pamper Day at a great salon where they have the choice of treatments which include a back, neck and shoulder massage  or a fantastic facial both of which will leave you feeling relaxed and fresh ready for some fun. Or you can glam yourself up for the big night out by having your eye lashes done or a file and polish on your hands or feet.  The girls in the salon are all professionally trained and are used to hen parties, they really go out their way to make sure you have fun and provide nibbles and bubbly too!

After they are all ready to go the big night out things usually start with our fabulous cocktail class where you will be taught by our expert mixologist on a range of cocktails whilst sampling 3 each and the bride to be will be given the chance to make her own unique cocktail.

You can follow this with dinner in a choice of different venues – all of which we have sample menus. The restaurants we book are all friendly towards large groups and don’t mind fancy dress.

At this point we know you ladies will be looking to have a dance and we can gauarntee you all entry to a whole range of bars and clubs with our VIP club pass at just £5.00 each for the two nights and if you like we can even reserve you an area for your group and if we ask nicely they will very often through in some free bubbly for your celebration.

The really great thing about a weekend like this is that you are all in one place, you can relax and enjoy each others company, bring your own booze which cuts down on spending when you are out and about – a package tailor made to suit your group but similar to the one we have described includes 2 nights accomodation, butler in the buff, pamper treatments, cocktail class, dinner and nightclub entry will come in at an inclusive price of just £170.00 each – so with just a little bit extra for drinks when you are out you can have a fantastic fun filled weekend for under £200.

We can also organise the same kind of weekend but during the week – our midweek breaks are slighted cheaper and you can do the same kind of things for about £50 less each which is great for all you groups that are on a budget or maybe not looking for such a wild time.

We are always available Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm to help sort out your unique holiday so give us a call if you are unsure what you want to do.
