Find a Place to Rest Your Weary Head near Edinburgh Airport

Edinburgh Airport isn’t the largest in the world, yet an impressive 9.8 million travelers pass through its departure gates every year. Many of these flights leave very early or very late, and people also pass though on connecting flights with only a few hours to spare. Edinburgh is a short tram, bus, or taxi ride away, but you don’t have to go into the city center to find a place to stay, some great hotels close to the airport offer rest, recuperation and a quick bite before you fly off to far flung places.

Norton House Hotel and Spa is a great choice if you want to hit the gym or enjoy a relaxing spa treatment to straighten out the kinks after a long flight. For a real treat you could book one of the luxury suites, have a three course meal in Ushers restaurant, or take high tea in the conservatory, followed by an aromatherapy massage and soak in the hydrotherapy pool.

Alternatively, head to the Bridge Inn for a relaxing meal on board the barge, a pint in the award-winning pub and a good night’s sleep in one of the charming traditional rooms. In the morning, the generous cooked breakfast will set you up perfectly for the journey ahead.
