      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 …

There are over 49,000 performances of more than 3,100 shows in the Fringe Festival, not to mention the Art Festival, which is on at the same time. We wandered around for a while just taking in the sights, and then came across a chap handing out booklets for all the free shows. We recognised him as Carey Marx: ...

      ... within the Terminal building, which also comprised lots of retail shops.

      From here, we move onto the Edinburgh Zoo, a 30 minute cab ride away. After our experience at the Wildlife Centre in Montrose Basin a few days earlier, we were expecting big things from this visit. We were not let down. There were plenty of animals to see and Patsy was greatly impressed by the layout of the Zoo and the standard of the animals enclosures. There were plenty of ...
