Edinburgh with Kids – The best hotels for families.

My boys enjoying the view from Old Town Edinburgh.

Edinburgh With Kids

  • Cheval Old Town Chambers is the best family hotel in Edinburgh. Large beautiful suites with kitchen, living room, nice views, and great central location close to the castle.
  • Lots of history to see in Scotland but if the kids need a fun modern attraction try Camera Obscura (not far from the castle). Lots of fun for the whole family.
  • The Devil’s Advocate is a bar restaurant just off High Street with great food, good bear, a fun vibe – and still kid-friendly (if you order food – the bar area is just for adults).

  1. Kid-Friendly Restaurants Near Edinburgh Hotel

    We are staying at the Old Town Chambers for 6 nights. We arrive late (about 7pm) on a summer night. Is there anywhere close to the hotel you would recommend eating? I know we have a kitchen but likely won’t have time to shop for groceries and with two tired kids will want to stay close.

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Zizzi is a pizza/pasta place directly next door to the Old Town Chambers. Nice outdoor patio and views (if you sit inside). Great food.
