... SUNDAY - OUR TRAVEL BEGINS. My morning started with taking skye the dog a walk, a regular morning routine that I quite enjoy, weather permitting that is, can't have rain where the dog is concerned..lol. Both Rich and I then packed our bags and loaded the car with our belongings and bedding and headed to my brother Richards to pick up the cycle rack, we then went to my Dads and loaded up the camper. With everything just about done I shot off to pick my Mum and Arnie up to then come ...
... br> Train travel certainly is a painless way to get around the UK. Dave and I found it quite enjoyable. And we liked traveling first class as well. The scenery, for the most part, was beautiful with rolling green hills, small villages and farms and then along the coastline with some stunning ocean vistas.
When we found out we crossed into Scotland via train, we welcomed each other with a kiss. Finally, we're here! Arriving ...
... all that remained to visit was the outside bits,not an easy feat as by now we were getting wet ourselves and started to dodge more umbrellas. At one stage, while we were walking in the rain taking in all the scenery, we just stopped and looked at each other and burst out laughing. the whole situation was mad, " no way would we do this at home " we said to each other. So there we stood, wet and shivering, but we completed our visit to the ...
... included was fantastic. We left out with full bellies to discover Edinburgh.
We went towards the royal mile after riding the bus into town. We wound up in the Scottish national gallery and took a quick trip through. We saw works of art from the 1500's and before by artists that even a bore like myself had heard of! I actually saw a Davinci painting, several Monet's, etc. Really cool stuff. Then up the hill towards the royal mile. At ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Bruntsfield Edinburgh
We just returned from a two day visit in Edinburgh. The hotel is not what we thought it to be. The receptionist gave us false information regarding breakfast times. Said until 10.00 but it was indeed only until 09.30. She did know know what Wi Fi was! She gave me a modem cable instead...... The room we got was on the top floor, with a very small window. The shower did not work! The bath had no hot water. Called the manager, he said the boiler was down. Next day we were moved to a larger superior room which was very cold, so we were supplied with a very old portable electric heater. The hot water arrived only after 6 minutes of running the water. The manager was kind to offer a free bottle of wine for all our troubles. Was rather disappointed.
Stayed at the Bruntsfield for 3 nights, weekend prior to Christmas the hotel was fantastic, breakfast was very good with a large choice tried eveything which was all good, I can recommend giving the Haddock a go. The hotel facilities were very good, nice cosy area in the room adjacent to reception to sit and have a drink before or after dinner. The King's Bar downstairs was very good, great atmosphere and popular with locals which was very nice. All the staff we encountered were polite, friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. We hired a car so it was great to have on the doorstep parking, we walked into town most days and it took no more that 20 minutes, walking leisurely, through a very pleasant area. We took cabs in and out of town in the evening at a cost of approx £5 each way (with tip). Would recommend the hotel without hessitation and would definately stay there again myself.
wonderful hotel, we stayed 2 nights in a huge room wonderful breakfast and dinner. Excellent for access to main shopping area and theatre district.
Will definetley be staying here again.
The staff was wonderful. My friend and I had originally booked two nights in a hostel over a very busy weekend, but due to a "booking malfunction" were left stranded. We then tried the Best Western which was also full, but the receptionist was nice enough to call several other hotels - all booked. She then arranged for us to stay in the room that they usually reserve for the night manager. All of the staff were extremely kind and helpful. The room was nice and spacious, the hotel was very clean, and breakfast was delicious. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Great Hotel, Big Rooms, Big Breakfast
We stayed here for two nights over the weekend. Room was huge by anyone's standards, certainly the biggest that I have stayed in Europe. Very clean, quiet and the staff were friendly. Breakfasts were excellent. Location is great, easy walking distance to all the main tourist magnets. Would strongly recommend and will definetly stay here again.
On a side note, there is no air-conditioning in the rooms so may not be too good on a really hot day.
We had a wonderful two night break staying at the Bruntsfield. Room was lovely, staff were friendly, location was excellent, bar was nice serving really good food and we would definately stay there again.
Brief one night stay at the hotel, very reasonable prices, hotel room was large and very spacious and had views of the park to the front, the decor on the other hand was a bit dated and could do with an overhaul, the bed was king size and was one of the most comfortablle beds we have ever slept in. Not a bad bet for a brief visit just dont expect anything too fancy.
Very nice room and the breakfast was awesome.
A very pleasant stay and I would certainaly stay again.
The access to the city centre is good too and in walking distance if you feel fit for a 20 minute walk.
Plenty of buses from the town or A Taxi for just over £4
Traditional Edinburgh Hotel
Very comfortable rooms and friendly staff. We had a rental car so enjoyed having a car park at a hotel so close to the city centre. The breakfasts were superb and we dined in the restaurant one night and enjoyed Scottish beef.
Comfortable and good location
We had a very comfortable short break in this hotel in April 2002. It has a lovely location looking over a park which you can walk through to the Castle and all local buses stop at the hotel. Bedrooms were spacious and well equipped (ask for one of their new wing rooms) and the restaurant served great food. The Kings Bar was very stylish and got very busy on Saturday night. All in all we couldn't really fault the hotel - the staff were great too.
