    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.

    ... Liz wanted a country home feel. She and Phillip had single beds each in their separate cabins, but the bed linen was made to their individual specifications. The first double bed on the yacht was brought on by Charles for his honeymoon with Di, and it was only a double! We had free time in the afternoon and we met up with baby girl for lunch. We climbed up Calton Hill (nearly had a heart attack!) for more spectacular views, then walked back to our hotel along ...

    ... to the weather, but this morning in particular was beautiful. It was sunny with bright blue skies and not too chilly. This made for prime picture taking and I was able to truly capture how amazing Edinburgh is. One of the coolest attractions at Calton Hill was an acropolis that was partly built centuries ago. The Scots thought that Edinburgh would be the next Athens so they tried to imitate their architecture. However, millions ...

    King for a Day. When he won big at Stirling Bridge in 1279, Wallace became "King of Scotland." A year later he and his forces lost big at Falkirk. He was on the run for the next seven years.

    Wallace wielded this sword in battle. As one man said, his DNA is still on the grip. If so, with the things they are doing with DNA today, it might be possible to trace his lineage to his progeny today. He is supposed to have had ...

    ... a bar. I was concerned that my Scottish mum would worry about me, so Olie offered to let me call or text her on his phone. So I did so. I let her I know that I my next bus wouldn't be by for another hour and not to wait up for me. She offered to come pick me up, but I insisted on taking the bus home. Then I went to Hive. One of the guys stopped to grab food, and he shared his chips (huge french fries) with me. They were covered in mayo, which tasted weird. I explained fry sauce ...

    Today we walked to the High Street, the main street, in Edinburgh and toured Edinburgh Castle. The Castle is located on the highest point in Edinburgh and overlooks the Firth of Forth, a tributary of the Forth River that leads to the North Sea. While it has been a refuge for royalty when under siege, the Castle's main purpose was as a defensive and military structure. As such, today it houses ...
