The Edinburgh Minto Hotel plans to provide 25 per cent discounts on the advertised room rate which will be available to parents all year round.

More than 100,000 children pass through The Royal Hospital for Sick Children every year, being treated for conditions ranging from cancer to scoliosis surgery.

Tracey Robertson, general manager of Edinburgh Minto Hotel, said: “We really want to help out parents who have to travel from further afield whilst their child is seeking treatment at the Sick Kids in Edinburgh.
