The Admirals Inn is a really centrally located in Ogunquit. It has two heated pools, two jacuzzis and a really cool fire pit!
I stayed there for two nights this summer and it was a really fun and friendly place. It has a great location with the centre of town only a five minute walk away.
The staff are really friendly and helpful and the town is a beautiful place to stay.
Apartment accommodation can actually be a good way to save money and get better value accommodation in Edinburgh.
Most hotels cost around £100 per night but you can book three-four star apartments for around £90 per night and some of these can sleep up to four people.
This means it works out around £23pppn compared to the £50pppn at a hotel! Add to that the fact you get your own kitchen and lounge area and it can actually be quite a bargain!
Worth thinking about if you are going to be staying in Edinburgh.

The Missoni is the newest five-star hotel in Edinburgh and after spending a weekend there I have to say it is one of the most impressive.
You get a fantastic location for touring Edinburgh, it's in the middle of the Royal Mile a few minutes from the castle and about a 15 min walk from Princes Street.
The hotel is unlike other five-star propertys in that you get a lot of things free. These include unlimited movies, free wireless internet and a free minibar.
The staff were great, room was comfortable and all in all a great place to stay in Edinburgh.
1- Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum
Kelvingrove is the most visited museum in Scotland and the most visited in the UK outside of London. It recently underwent a massive refurbishment which has added new collections to its already impressive invitory.
2- Museum Of Transport
Everything from a horse and carriage to vintage steam trains are available here. A great place for kids or for a family day out, plenty to see.
3- Glasgow Cathedral
Worthwhile just to see the building itself, it is hundreds of years old and still looks magnificent, not bad inside either.
4- Burrell Collection
Located opposite the Kelvingrove Museum and well worth doing along with its more popular neighbor. Plenty to see from Ancient Egypt to information on Sir William Burrell who donated the collection.
This museum is one of the most unique and fun museums I have ever been to. It is primarily aimed at kids but if you are young at heart you can have loads of fun crawling in tunnels and through caves along with the kids.
The highlight is outside the museum where you crawl around wire mesh several hundred feet above the ground and cap it off by sliding down a roller slide!

Urquhart is one of the most picturesque castles in Scotland as it sits overlooking Loch Ness. The castle is in ruins but there is still plenty to see and some excellent photo opportunity's.
A must see on any trip to Loch Ness.
Edinburgh can be an expensive place to stay, but there are some budget options available. Rooms-in-Edinburgh have over a dozen hostels that have beds from £12 a night. There are also several budget hotels which have great city centre locations and are only £50 a room.
Loch Ness is a short drive from the city centre of Inverness and a cruise offers you a chance to relax and enjoy some breathtaking scenery.
There are plenty of beautiful towns and villages around the area such as Fort Augustus and Drumnadrochit that are worth a detour and Inverness offers a perfect base for exploring the area.
