    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 …

    We headed off to an early dinner and we found this really great Iranian restaurant. I had Chicken Shish kebabs. They were really tasty and the naan bread was huge. After dinner we headed to a place called the Whiskey Trail where we were given a very interesting lesson on how whiskey is made. We were put into a barrel shaped cart which moved through the building showing how whiskey is made. It was explained to us by a ghost. Quite neat really. After the tour ...

    ... we went to Oink, a highly recommended roast pork roll establishment. We took our lunch to Princes Garden and ate among the locals also enjoying the sunshine. Scottish law permits shops to open on Easter Sunday which was good for us as tourists to have a look at the shops in the afternoon. In the evening we went to a local pub for dinner which had very cheap meals. We finished the day with an Easter egg! Yum! Monday 21 April For our last day in Edinburgh we decided to take it ...
