I've just stayed for 2 nights for 2 people in the Queenferry hotel (overlooking forth road bridge) which joins Fife and the capital Edinburgh for just £57.00 and a possible 10 % via quidco!!! ((£5.70). Thats 2 people, for 2 nights with full breakfast!
NOTE THE SAME DATES ON THE HOTELS OWN WEBSITE IS £156.00!!! EG
The Queensferry Hotel - Select Packages. Arrival Date Monday, March 02, 2009 Number of Adults in one Room 2. Departure Date Wednesday, March 04, 2009 Children 0. Room Standard Double Bedded Room with En-suite £156.00. http://www.foliohotels.com/queensferry/
I've not included quidco in the price but if you do get quidco this makes this deal an absolute steal! As it would take another £5.70 off so basically a possible of around £50 for 2 NIGHTS FOR 2 PEOPLE WITH BREAKFAST! NOTE use promotion code 901660 to get 10 % off and so make the price £57 instead of £61.
The breakfast is a buffet style yes all the works full Scottish breakfast, plus cereals, juice, pastries, yoghurts, fruit salad and so on. I sat in a table near the window and got an awesome view of the forth road bridge.
I didnt eat in the restaurant at night but they have tables which give an awesome view of the forth road bridge.
Note this seems to be a 2 days for the price of 1 promotion and as far as I can see its only valid Monday to Thursday in march 09. NOTE if you want to stay four nights you must make 2 separate bookings.
NOTE other sites have the same deal eg gtahotels at £31 a night, travelrepublic £31.48 etc but with the 10 % off 31.50 at hotelopia and a possible 10 % quidco it makes it a better deal.
This links should hopefully take you to it but dont forget quidco!http://www.hotelopia.co.uk/search.jsp?indiceGP=0
Ive grouped together a few points I forget to mention which people have raised :
only 19 minutes into Edinburgh from north Queensferry by train. (costs £4.60 for an off peak return.
note if coming by train it may be cheaper to get a train fare to edinburgh (you could even spend teh day in edinburgh before journeying to the hotel later on - train to north queensfery only 19 mins - and then pay the small difference (about £4) to north queensferry. also note you may get cheap fares to inverkeithing (the next stop) and just get off one stop early.
also note if you do add on a Friday stay and travel into Edinburgh on a weekend kids travel free anywhere in Scotland with adults remember to ask for ithttp://www.nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares/promotions/pr53a4ffc35ce74101ed57e9b82fad4e/details.html
