Probably equivalent to a 3 star motel with regards to the fittings and facilities, however it is perfect for our purpose. We have had 4nights in a Family Room during the peak festival season for £125 a night including continental breakfast.
Bus leaves from right outside your door. The bus costs £3.50 per adult and £2 per child per day, so if you are only using the buses to get in and out of the city you should consider this part of your accommodation costs when comparing it. However, the bus system in Edinburgh is the best I've seen, buses e wry 10 minutes, everywhere, so this is also a cheap way to get around.
My favorite thing is access to fresh air, I hate air conditioned motel rooms, so it was perfect to have the window open.
Good, neat, clean and no fuss.

... scenic at the best of times, so our abrupt debouchment into the middle of the Royal Mile takes even me by surprise. The old grand buildings look particularly imposing with their spires disappearing into the cloud, and the spiders' lairs they contain, sorry, that should read shops, look as menacing as they in fact can be to the tourist unwary enough to get trapped in them. We eventually allow ourselves to be enticed into a coffee shop with espresso and ...
... on to the walking tour which took us past the literary museum, to the base of the Edinburgh Castle, to the grass market (the local execution grounds back in the day) and to the grey friars cemetery where JK Rowling found inspiration for her character's names from the gravestone (a Tom Riddle in particular for all your Harry P fans). Again I was a big fan of the walking tour as our guide was excellent. After our tour ...

... to have the best Guinness in Edinburgh. The next day I went off to play cricket while the others went to the Sunday markets and lazed in the sun up at Calton Hill. That night before they hopped back on the bus, we went for a feed of fish and chips and sat in the park, watching a million dogs pass by. A good end to the weekend.
Fireworks went off every night for the whole month around 10.30pm which after the fist few days found out it was part of the performance ...
... rooftops look like stone lace. The struggle to knock them down again during the two centuries of the Reformation and the destruction of such wonderful buildings seems so God-awful senseless.
And…there are so many of these sites. Barb, Les and I, in deciding where we would get off the beaten track found ourselves saying “oh, its just going to be another destroyed castle and
abbey”! Each one ...
