Glampotel Dundas Castle: Tentalow with free parking and barbecue grills. Guests give the location a thumbs up.
There are a few things we can think of that are on the list of any intrepid explorer: climbing a few mountains, scuba diving a few reefs, and of course, going on a safari. Getting up close and personal—but not too personal—with some of the world’s most weird and wonderful animals should be on the bucket list of anyone who likes the Great Outdoors. But just because you want to get in touch with nature doesn’t mean you have to sleep like a wild animal. We’re sure you’ve heard of glamping, and maybe even tried it. If not, then a Edinburgh safari tentalow is an incredible way to start. If you have, we’re sure you’ve never done it like this.
What even is a tentalow? We’re glad you asked. These luxury tents are the middle ground between camping and hotels, with everything you love from each. You’ll wake up to a cool breeze and chirping birds as if you’re roughing it, but find yourself on a plush, pillowtop bed. You’ll have the stunning, uninterrupted views of a wilderness outpost, but still start your day with a nice, warm shower. And forget cooking things over an open fire—with a tentalow, it’s all about gourmet meals and hot brekkie. It’s amped-up camping. It’s over-the-top tenting. We don’t know how else to say it: Luxury camping in Edinburgh is unrivalled.
Ready to take a walk on the wild side? You’ll find everything you need to plan a glam camping trip to Edinburgh right here at Wotif. You can leave your sleeping bag and billycan at home for this one. We got this.
We were rather surprised at the quality of the hotel after reading reviews online. However smaller details of the hotel impacted our experience. No parking onsite (a 15min walk away at Edinburgh Castle), the wrong size duvet (double) put in a king size duvet cover, general wear and tear and cleanliness ...
Situated in Edinburgh, this hotel is 0.8 mi (1.3 km) from Royal Highland Centre and 2.9 mi (4.6 km) from Gyle Shopping Centre. Edinburgh Zoo and Edinburgh Park are also within 6 miles (10 km).
The luxurious surroundings, the finish with in the rooms and the great service from everybody involved
Great place to stay for access to transport system to tourist sites.
