Marathon Hotels & accommodation information
With a fun filled weekend promised and good weather "ALMOST" guaranteed, why not book your accommodation and make a real break of it!?
Hop on a Tour bus to see the sites, visit the impressive National Museum and spectacular Edinburgh Castle. Take time out to chill in the buzzy street cafes and restaurants, or just meander a while through old cobbled streets and down the Royal Mile. There is always plenty to see and do, BUT don't just take our word for it - The "Lonely Planet" quoted Scotland as being one of the top countries to visit in the world! Click here for more on this.
If you don't know Edinburgh very well, or have never visited before, OfficialHotels.com (sister booking company to the Edinburgh Marathon Festival) can give you invaluable assistance and help make booking your stay in the Capital a breeze. Offering specially negotiated EMF rates across the City, in all types of accommodation from budget (but excellent quality) Youth Hostels, to 3, 4 and 5 star hotels convenient to the Race Start. Or if you want something quirky you can even hire a houseboat for the weekend or a Penthouse apartment big enough to hold a full Clan!
With over 30,000 entries for the EMF 2016, accommodation in Edinburgh does get booked up early, so it's strongly recommended to book in advance.
Hotels favour longer stay business and will offer better value rates for it too, so why not take advantage and stay two nights almost for the price of one!!
