New Year's Eve Parties

Of course, you can always extend your stay to take in New Year's Eve as well, which in many parts of Scotland and the rest of the UK, is almost as important as Christmas. For many edinburgh hotels new years eve is their busiest night, and one of the most profitable. Hotels all over Scotland offer New Year's parties, varying widely in cost and what you get for your money. Just like Christmas, most good hotels go out of their way to guarantee guests a memorable way of seeing in the New Year. Expect a festive atmosphere, often with a live band, DJ, or other entertainment, along with snacks and champagne at midnight. If you like the idea of being somewhere lively but don't have the time or energy to host your own party, spending the night at a hotel do is the answer. It also eliminates the problem of having a designated driver, or trying to book a taxi just after midnight - one of the busiest times for most taxi companies. Being able to walk back to your hotel room and not have the problem of getting back home is worth it to thousands of revellers.

The holiday season can be hectic and stressful, with never enough time to get everything done. Many hotels in Scotland offer Christmas breaks, Christmas meals or New Year's packages, and these can be a blessing for anyone too busy to enjoy the season.

Christmas Breaks 

The advantages of booking yourself into a hotel for a few days over Christmas are obvious; it can be an affordable and easy way to relax and enjoy the festive season. And letting someone else do the cooking, serving and washing up on Christmas Day is appealing; it's little surprise that many good hotels are booked months ahead of time for their Christmas dinner. Eating your Christmas meal in a hotel also means that you are assured of a traditional meal with all the trimmings - turkey or a goose, stuffing, vegetables, Christmas pudding or trifle. Many hotels go out of their way to make the occasion as festive as possible, with Christmas crackers, party hats, seasonal music and a visit from Santa. If you have a large family visiting, and just don't have the room, or don't like the idea of cooking for a dozen or more people, eating your Christmas meal at a hotel makes sense.
