Abbots House in near the wharf area in Leith, a suburb about 3km south of Edinburgh. It is an old guesthouse that has seen better days. Our room has an ensuite (as long as you don't want to get 2 people in it). There is a skylight that doesn't have a cover. When I reported this I was told that they knew about the problem and would fix it tomorrow (which they didn't). I am not sure why they didn't fix it before we got here.
The breakfast was OK but not as good as those at the other places we have stayed at in the UK.
Abbots rated as 3 star on Bookings.com. I am surprised that they got such a high rating.

Not many people are out on the streets at 9am on a Sunday morning, so a lot of them ended up looking a bit apocalyptic. I kept expecting ...
... a good result at the end of the day.Having arrived in Colombo it was soon apparent that it was going to be a rough night. There is a hotel adjacent to the Terminal but was full so it was the seats for the night.I then headed to try and get some money to find that the nearest Cash machine was through immigration.
I went to the Sri Lankan Airlines desk to ask assistance and passed them our boarding cards for the last leg of the journey ...
... ruin but a very well kept place. We received little radios that if followed correctly gave us an informed tour around which was quite good. It told us about some of the history from the most famous owners which were the Percy family who wielded some kingly power in the north. After we had finished our tour I bought some delicious tasting raspberry curd which I had sampled on previous visits but caved to the temptation of smothering my toast for breakfast. We then hit the road again ...
... I would have something to envision it for the readers.
I started to set foot in the National War Museum of Scotland, also located at the top of the castle grounds, but decided to spend my time elsewhere since it seemed to only deal with the history of World War I and II. I later found out that it had other parts that went back four centuries of military history, and would have been quite interesting. Instead I went into the Prisons of War recreation. ...
28/12/12 Today was shopping day. Sarcastic yippee! We found some cheap stuff in Gap and Primark(?) (they're shops) including some blue leggings. Later Grace, Lauren and I went on the Ice Maze (a ride) at the winter festival then we went to watch the Hobbit. Its 3 hours and its only part 1. Unbelievable. ...length I mean. It was a good movie. -Caitlin Shopping day - yay - got some bargains. ...
