A night at the Dalmahoy Country Club Edinburgh

 When planning our trip to Disneyland we needed to find a hotel close to Edinburgh airport, we did the usual travelodge and premier inn search then we stumbled up on this beauty, the Dalmahoy Country Club and Hotel. The price for one night was just slightly higher than that of a standard airport hotel, meaning there was no way we were missing the chance to stay in a fancy hotel with a spa, two golf courses and a nature trail the night before we flew. It turns out the hotel is only a 10 minute drive from the airport and super easy to find and the drive up to it is beautiful, the whole place is beautiful! We checked in very quickly with some lovely service and headed to find our room, this place is massive so if you stay I'd definitely recommend using the map they give you!
We opted for a basic double room since we'd only be staying the night to be close to the airport and weren't expecting too much. However the room was absolutely massive, with views of the grounds and the comfiest bed EVER. The room even had a mini fridge which we were buzzing about since we could use it to stash our Irn Bru and chocolate haha. We quickly hurried out though as we wanted to do the nature trail and wander the grounds before the sunset. 
The grounds are beautiful, so much to see! The hotel have their own honey bees and the hives are so cute, they have a pond? or a lake I'm not sure which is classes as since it was massive and a bird hide so you can watch all the swans and geese. Although when we were wandering there were a few geese upon the lawns! The grounds are very big and pretty definitely worth a trip to wander around, after an hour or so we headed back to our room to warm up a little before heading for dinner, we got lost looking for the brasserie so I'd 100% recommend using the hotel maps. 
The food was so yummy and reasonably priced it was well worth a visit. After dinner we were exhausted and decided to head back for an early night since our flight was super early and we had to be at the airport for 6am. Our stay at The Dalmahoy was wonderful and I'd love to go back and try their spa out. My only issue is they woke us too early with the clocks changing but I can forgive that since clocks going back confuses everyone. 

I cannot wait to share my Disneyland trip and Paris trip with you all over the next few days, but first I had to share the Dalmahoy because it was such a lovely stay!
