The time of year people are full of love. The heart-eye emoji gets massively over used and your Facebook is full of posts of people declaring their undying love in huge long rambles that you give a like or heart reaction to (let’s be honest here…) without really reading! So we’ll skip the epic love story part and, simply tell you that Edinburgh is the city of love and if you think Valentine’s at the Dunstane was good last year, wait till you experience it post-refurb!
We have to start with what we all really want for Valentine’s…a lie-in! A morning where we can wake up slowly, perhaps turn on the smart TV, or link our phones and Spotify accounts to the stylish Roberts radio, or order a full Scottish breakfast to your bedroom door. Then flip the sign to “Doonie” (please do not disturb!) and while away the morning in peace and quiet. Using any excuse possible to remain in the world’s comfiest bed. OK, we made that accolade up, but personally we think it’s true!
Explore the city together. Get lost down historic streets, wander round the Botanic Gardens or hit the bars! There are plenty of bars and cocktail venues to visit on your romantic break, and Edinburgh is never short of a little table for two. Try the Jolly Botanist, a midway point up to Princes Street, for an incredible selection of Gins. Consider Copper Blossom, The Dome or Le Monde for a high-class cocktail on George Street. If you’re looking for less Valentines and more craic, many in Edinburgh are currently celebrating the return of live-music Irish bar Malones! Or head down the Grassmarket to BrewDog Edinburgh or any of the great bars in that area. There is something to suit any night out. Our team are always happy to recommend places too, so just ask.
With Edinburgh being one of the most beautiful cities in the world, it isn’t hard to find a spot to fall in love along our cobbled streets. Paris may be the city of love, but we’re titling Edinburgh the city of romance, where the love happens. Swap the Eiffel Tower for the even more beautiful, and interestingly historic Scott Monument. Climb to the top here, visit the esplanade at Edinburgh Castle or head up Arthur’s Seat. As dusk falls, you’ll the perfect romantic atmosphere, perhaps the perfect setting for those 4-words on Valentine’s Day in Edinburgh – just saying, Champagne is waiting back in your room after all…
So treat your loved one. Wine and dine your Valentine and enjoy our candlelit dinner for two on the 14th February. Or toast each other any time, with our all-day dining a menu. The Dunstane is the perfect setting for your Valentines evening, whether it’s on the 14th or not! The Dunstane has the perfect recipe for a Valentine’s Day in Edinburgh.
