      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 …

He led the group to the top of the castle where we had incredible views of the city and we were then able to tour around a bit on our own. We saw the Scottish Crown Jewels last on the head of Charles the second which were then lost for over a hundred years until found by Sir Walter Scott (quite the ...

I was lucky enough to catch some shows for free during the festival this year due to being a staff member at one of the venues. I really recommend a show that comes back every year called "Voca People" which is an A Capella group from New York who do covers of so many songs ranging from movie theme tunes to a timeline of songs from around the world! So there is ...

      ... other stone...except that this is the stone that is placed under the throne when the new monarch of the United Kingdom is crowned.

      That was where my tour of the castle came to an end, so I made my way out of the grounds and back down the Royal Mile to head over to York Street, where I was due to see the first of the comedy shows that I had pre-booked - John Robertson's Nifty History Of Evil. I have seen several of John's shows and they always make me laugh a lot. The chance to ...
