Inns and Restaurants with Private Rooms in Scotland

Whether you love a Michelin-starred meal, a foodie feast, or great comfort food in the pub - if you're passionate about food, why not book an overnight stay at a restaurant with rooms or a traditional inn in Scotland?

What Can I Expect at a Restaurant with Rooms?

What could be better after a great meal than simply strolling back to your sumptuous room for a sound night's sleep? No designated driver or taxi required - plus you're guaranteed a great breakfast the next day. A restaurant with rooms will offer four and five-star rooms on-site, either above the restaurant, in a separate building, or maybe even in a luxury bothy! With a maximum of twelve rooms, you'll be sure of a personal welcome and a fabulous night's sleep after dinner.

As many restaurants with rooms in Scotland hold AA rosettes or even Michelin stars, they are immensely popular places to eat and stay - your booking will normally guarantee you a table for dinner.

Check-in is similar to a hotel or a B&B - you simply call in at reception to register and pick up your keys on arrival. Breakfast is served the next morning, either in the restaurant or in your accommodation.

What is staying in a Scottish inn like?

Most of Scotland's traditional inns date back 100s of years and the historic buildings are full of character. Staying in a pub in Scotland offers a great blend of history along with good value for money and modern facilities.

  • Staying in a traditional pub or a country coaching inn offers accommodation with an on-site bar or restaurant open to both residents and visitors for lunch, dinner and snacks in-between
  • Accommodation in an inn is usually suited to those on a budget, with the accommodation provided above the pub, but some 'gastro pubs' might also offer more boutique or luxury accommodation
  • Breakfast will usually be served in the bar the next morning

Where to Stay - Inns in Scotland

We've got over 100 inns to choose from right across Scotland, including pub accommodation in Edinburgh and Glasgow, country pubs with accommodation in Dumfries, St Andrews, Stromness on Orkney and South Uist in the Outer Hebrides - and Scotland's oldest inn in the heart of Perthshire.

Most of Scotland's traditional inns date back to the days when people had to use a horse and stagecoach to get around - and come complete with long histories, tall tales and traditional architecture.

In the past, travellers would have to make overnight stops at inns along their route to change horse, so you'll find traditional coaching inns or drovers inns (as they were traditionally known) located throughout the length and breadth of Scotland. This makes them perfect places to stay on your next road trip around Scotland.
