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.

Well, on Thu into Fri morning Greg lay down, watched golf, Tour de France and read Ric************s biography while I went out and saw the sights. At least the rest combined with anti inflammatories seems to have worked. Our apartment in Grassmarket is very central, 3 big floors up and no lift of course but a good size. Nice couch for Greg. My travels took me to St Giles church and graveyard where hundreds ...
... was too cute for my little 'be normal' gland to handle. The castle was really interesting, and talked a lot about the rich military history. Not something I was all that huge on (war that is), but I have to say I felt rather patrioticly Scottish walking around there with my pale skin and McPhee to my name. I am clearly born to be Scottish. After that, I headed back towards the hostel and decided to spend my last evening of ...
So after another late night we had a wonderful sleep in, spent some time being lazy and enjoying one of our last chances to be in holiday mode. Julie's friend Katie came to say goodbye before we headed off to catch the bus to do some last minute shopping and browsing around Princes street and beyond. We stopped to have a look at The Dome but the line outside deterred us from going in, we saw a beautiful Aston Martin on the street and decided though we would of liked it there ...
... there for a bit in the evening, though another early night.
And another early morning! While I had planned on getting to the trade fair (everything was free) early, the allure of talking to people back home and showering was overwhelmingly better. The line was way too long once I got there, so went to a bargain store instead to look for some stationery and other bits and pieces I couldn't bring with me.
The highlight of Monday was definitely knitting night. The people ...
... Did lots of
walking as the city is so compact. Went to see the Britannia on
Thursday afternoon. Interesting inside, but definitely not over the
top like some of the Royal stuff we saw in Paris. Ate a Haggis and
steak pie for lunch one day … what a culinary delight. Certainly
compares favourably with a South Dunedin mutton pie !!! ...
