Boutique Hotels In Scotland
There are dozens of so-called boutique hotels in Scotland, and they make a refreshing alternative to the large and sometimes characterless chain hotels. They range from properties in Edinburgh and Glasgow offering urban style, to country retreats offering a relaxing escape. Scotland is the home of golf, of course, so it isn’t surprising that some hotels offer golf packages. Boutique hotels became popular in the 1980s; today, they are more popular than ever with travelers looking for something a little different. A boutique property is typically small, and offers a more intimate feel than the larger chain hotels; they also focus on personalized and attentive service and may have eclectic or unique décor and furnishings. If that all sounds appealing, the good news is that a boutique hotel won’t necessarily cost you more than a stay in a bed and breakfast or larger chain hotel.
