    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.

    Edinburgh - Simply Stunning

    We had heard many great things about Scotland - the wonderful architecture, stunning scenery and intriguing history. So we couldn’t wait to see what all the fuss was about!

    From the moment we drove across the Scottish Border, from England, we were not disappointed. The sun was shining and the feel of the crisp Scottish air meant we were true heading north! As we drove up form the border ...

    ... the tops of my meals so far.

    Now it is time to take a train back to London and then a 9 hour overnight bus ride to Paris! It is going to be nice to sit and do nothing the rest of the day, I am exhausted. Looking back at my time in Edinburgh, I can honestly say that this is my favorite city so far. The architecture, history, and walkability of the city makes it a great place to visit! I will be back some day!

    Until next time,

    ... escaping into the closes was known to cause hallucinations. Urban legends say that the hauntings originated with plague victims being quarantined and left to die in the close, or with their bodies being used to build the walls.

    The owners of The Real Mary King’s Close tours took advantage of the inaccessibility beneath the City Chambers and its haunted reputation to conjure up a fine recipe for the historical mythology that the citizens of Edinburgh and ...

    ... to be the flattest. I've never felt so deceived. Of course we chose the
    most difficult path with a vertical climb at the end. But this was the best route to get a view of the surroundings so that made up for it. After meandering to the summit, with Chris in thongs no less, we were welcomed by a breathtaking view of all of Edinburgh and even some of the surrounding loch's and highlands. After many, many ...

    ... to political, and social heroes, and and some less deserving "heroes" are scattered throughout the city. We walk past a statue of Adam Smith, the father of capitalism and Chris responds to Elizabeth's historic reference with "So that's who we have to blame." Multiple monuments are dedicated to Sir Walter Scott, a national hero here in Scotland, including a tall stone spire reminiscent of a church tower in the Prince's park, which you can climb for a view of the city-for a ...
