Our Picks Of The Top 10 Perfect Places For A Romantic Weekend Getaway
9. Hotel Missoni, Edinburgh
Channelling Italian glamour amid Edinburgh’s grey grandeur, Hotel Missoni is a resplendent rainbow-toned retreat, a bold and beautiful statement hotel close to the castle, with more shades and shapes to excite the eye than a sweetshop’s supply of pick ’n’ mix. The hotel’s restaurant and drinking den, Cucina and Bar Missoni, are attractions in their own right, providing hip hangouts for weary theatre-goers, bag-laden Princes Street-pilgrims and locals looking for luxury. The D’Argento Suite is the headline act, with views of the Old Town stretching beyond Arthur’s Seat as far as the Firth of Forth, and one-off Missoni-designed furniture, but if it’s old-town Edinburgh that sets your heart racing, ask for a room on the hotel’s 300-year-iold Royal Mile side.
