Top tips for finding the perfect Scotland hotel

  • If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Scotland, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper accommodations in Scotland in January and November.
  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Scotland if you stay on a Saturday. The opposite is true for, Thursday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • Book at least 55 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your Scotland accommodation.
  • The cheapest 3-star hotel room in Scotland found on KAYAK in the last 2 weeks was R1 357, while the most expensive was R2 697.
  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their accommodation in Scotland for 2 days.
  • Scotland is a country which is well renowned for its impressive golf courses. If you’re planning on teeing off when on holiday, you should look for hotels that are closer to the coast, rather than the centre of the country, as this is where more golf hotels are located. For example, Maryculter House in Aberdeen and Piries Hotel in Edinburgh are two hotels that offer golf as an activity to guests.
  • If you are planning on visiting Scotland to celebrate New Year’s Eve, then you should be aware that this is a peak time to visit the country, especially in the capital, Edinburgh. With thousands of people visiting to enjoy Edinburgh Hogmanay, many hotels will be more expensive to book and there is likely to be less choice available to you.
  • Throughout the year, popular tourist cities in the country such as Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness are busy places to visit. To avoid disappointment and to have good hotel deals available to you, it is advised that you book as far in advance as possible.
  • Scotland is a very romantic country and a great place for couples to visit, with many hotels offering spa facilities. Some of the main features of these types of hotel are spas, steam rooms and saunas. Some hotels also offer a range of treatments you can choose from too, such as massages and facials. An example of a hotel that offers these facilities is Dalmahoy Hotel and Country Club in Edinburgh.
