    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 …

    ... at a very trendy pub called clerks bar that did dinner for £5 and served boutique beers and cider very nice. I had to keep heading down the road to the laundromat as we were washing our clothes at the time. We had a fair few pints of the local and headed back to the room. Thrums B&B was a nice place to stay with an awesome shower! The staff clearly had a sense of humour as they short sheeted our bed lol. The following day we headed to ...

    ... Barcelona - Villarreal match before making our way towards the princes gardens to watch a fireworks show fired from Edinburgh castle to the backing of a symphony orchestra. Impressive to say the least. Our last full day in Edinburgh and we kept it relatively quiet. We spent a few hours in camera obscura a funny mirrors and fun things place and went out to our favourite pub on the mile 'the royal mile tavern' for a few ginger beers and a listen to some live music. Tomorrow ...

    ... will be performing 35 minutes worth of song. I managed to get permission to have everyone attend, so she will have a very enthusiastic performance. We will tape it and get plenty of pics.

    We also have another High Street performance today. I wish our High Street Performances were earlier in the day. It would really help boost ticket sales.

    Well Off on another adventure!
