Edinburgh has many accommodation options, but none quite like The Principal Hotel. It can be difficult to find the perfect family friendly and more importantly kid friendly luxury accommodations, but The Principal goes above and beyond for family travelers.

As soon as we arrived I knew staying with The Principal was going to be a fantastic experience. The property is located right in the heart of Edinburgh and you can even walk to all the main attractions and sites. We parked our car and never even went back to it until our stay was done. It was great to be able to be within walking distance of everything!

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
