Hotels with Hot Tub Suites

  • JustB Edinburgh Retreat – This hotel is a bit further out from Edinburgh, but the private outdoor hot tub in the Master Suite is worth the trip.
  • Nira Caledonia – This is the only decent hotel that has Jacuzzi Suites. Add a romance package and you’ll have a very memorable stay! While it’s pricey, it’s still cheaper than some 5-star hotels.
  • voco Edinburgh – Haymarket, an IHG Hotel – Firstly, this hotel hasn’t made our list of the most romantic hotels in the city. However, they do have a Queen Room with a jetted tub. Since there are so few hotels with hot tubs, this might be worth considering. It’s still a very classy hotel. Rooms are clean and the dining venue is very elegant.

Hotels with Bathtubs in Rooms

  • The Roseate Edinburgh – In the Roseate Suite, there’s a golden freestanding tub by the window. Just close the blinds if you need privacy, but the natural sunlight adds a nice vibe to the room.
  • House of Gods Royal Mile – Besides the golden bathtub in their Suites, all the decor is practically red! If you’re looking for an intimate stay, this is by far the most romantic room!
