      Basic standard, attentive service

      The room was smaller and more basic than what we had expected - there was no table in the room and the fridge was miniature.

      Furthermore, the room had not been fully cleaned from the previous guest (there were a few stains in the bathroom). Upon leaving the hotel my son crawled in under his bed to pick up an item that had fell under the bed. When he came out he had grey stains in his hair from having been close to the carpet. Apparently, more frequent vacuum cleaning under the beds would eliminate this issue.

      On the plus side was the helpfulness of the attentive staff in advising us on what to do in Edinburgh. Also, the Scottish breakfast included in the booking was tasty and met our expectations.

      In summary - small room, cleaning that could improve a bit, a helpful staff and a tasty breakfast.

      Frukost på Star Villa med stadardmenyn - skotsk frukost (vita bönor, korv, bacon, ägg på toast, svamp, tomat, blodpudding). Doreen undrade hur gårdagens utflykt varit och vi lovordade Loch Lomond och övriga sevärdheter. Vi diskuterade dagens planering med Doreen som föreslog North Berwick. Vi övervägde mellan detta och att hålla oss i stans parker …

      ... against Edward for six years, eventually betrayed by one of his own, he was executed.



      At 220 feet, the Wallace Monument was begun in 1861 and completed in 1869. Funded by public subscription, the push to recognize the much acclaimed national hero came during a burst of national pride and urge for independence. The hexagonal "tube" up the left side of the monument is the spiral staircase with 246 steps, the only way up and the ...

      ... Fried Pizza we ended up at this amazing Italian place and I finally got Carbonara!

      After lunch we jumped on a hop on hop off bus to see the sights of the city before heading back to the hotel for a little down time before dinner.

      Dinner was provided by the hotel and was honestly horrible.

      A few of us headed out for a couple of drinks at a pub in the city. My first night out since I got sick!
      It was an awesome night with lots of drinks and SO much spastic dancing.

      ... could have access to their water source!



      After our whisky tours we headed further east to the town of Aberdeen where we found a hotel right in the city center and began our search for someplace to have dinner. Our tried and true method of just wondering around and seeing what caught our eye paid off when we found a great little speakeasy type restaurant called The Tippling House. This was by far our ...
