I suppose they do not want business from outside the UK.
I guess that we have never booked them from outside the UK before. This year and last we have spent several months here, plus we have a UK bank so I never noticed that problem before. Sorry about that.
I've used Travelodge here before as well, and they are also good and inexpensive. Don't know about booking from abroad. If you Google "Accommodation Edinburgh" you'll get a good selection of hotels. Sorry I can't give any more specific names.
We are on our way out now to walk another section of The Cleveland Way. Good luck marra, and do let us know how you get on.
