A wise woman once said that a mini-break means true love—and it does if it's this week's Escape to beautiful Edinburgh. Sweep your beloved off their feet and whisk them away to a city of theatres and art galleries, castles and cocktail bars, fashionable shopping and fine food and drink—all courtesy of The Place.

This week's Escape is so good you'll want to kiss us: two people will stay overnight in a luxury Suite at the elegant Georgian townhouse for £149 (up to a £297.90 value). Alternatively, really set the mood with the same package for two nights for £229 (up to a £495.90 value). Prepare to fall head over heels for your attractive accommodation: think expansive room with lounging space, large TVs, en suite, and spacious, sumptuous bed—not to mention the romance package of Prosecco and chocolates in-room on arrival.

The food of love includes a full Scottish breakfast each morning of your stay and a two-course meal on the first night—both taken in the chic surrounds of the restaurant, with its sophisticated dark-meets-neutral décor and coolly contemporary seating and light fittings.

There's something to bring every couple closer in the UNESCO World Heritage City, and plenty of time to woo your other half with it all since checkout isn't until midday. Culture lovers will adore the myriad theatres, including The Edinburgh Playhouse, this year showing Derren Brown, Disney's The Lion King, and more; history buffs will take a liking to Edinburgh Castle and the iconic Arthur's Seat; literary types will be besotted with The Elephant House tea and coffee shop, where J.K. Rowling wrote Harry Potter; and outdoor types will lose their hearts to scenic walks such as the John Muir Way.

This Escape is for two people, with availability for all seven days of the week. Limited parking is available for £12 per day; enquire with hotel at time of booking. Got a question? Contact our Travel Concierge at escapes.uk@livingsocial.com, with the name of the hotel as the subject.

  • "Blessed with an outstanding array of scenery, Scotland's capital drapes over seven hills and is crowned by Edinburgh Castle, a dramatic and brooding landmark, with the bucolic Princes Street Gardens running through the city center."
