Had a beautiful sleep last night. Really getting the hang of this holiday. After breakfast Kate will meet with us and we will go for a walk. Then we will meet Mo at one of Kate's favourite cafés. Walked the Edinburgh Botanical Gardens caught a taxi to a cafe called the Rose Leaf to meet Mo. Such a lovely lady and so kind. We were given hats to wear as you will see in the photo. Also Mo rang Bling and asked me ...

... 8217;s mom) are anxious travellers, so even though I was more than two hours early for the flight, they were already checked in and waiting for me at Costa Coffee.

I checked in, we breezed through security, did some duty free shopping, and found our gate without much anxiety. We had a standard flight to Paris, two hours, no delays, and found our way on to our connecting gate with tons of time to spare. Lee and I wasted time by watching movies on ...

... I’m glad this isn’t something I have to deal with on a regular basis.

Anyway, with 15 minutes left to spare I made it to the train station and hopped on board for the trip to Edinburgh. The train journey itself was fairly uneventful. I wish I’d had a better seat, because occasionally the views were breathtaking. After arriving at Edinburgh Waverley station slightly ...

    What a surprise - good

    from

    I recently had the opportunity to chaperone students who performed in the Easter Parade. I was very concerned about the hotel that was booked for a large group that consisted of junior high-high school students. What a surprise upon our arrival at Menzies. I was pleasantly surprised. Throughout our entire stay the staff was very helpful. And, we did have some unusual requests - kids needed to practice their instruments, we needed plastic bags plus wet towels for those who tended to get motion sick on our bus trips, and we had bagpipers and dancers come in for entertainment. The breakfast buffet, which was included, offered a lot of variety. Our room was a double that adjoined a double. It was well appointed and comfortable. The student I was chaperoning had only one problem - the shower is in the tub, and the glass partition is only a partial one - she "flooded" the floor when she took her first shower. I then showed her how to better point the shower head and no more "floods." I am hoping to return to Edinburgh with my husband in October, and I am thinking of returning to Menzies.

    A good choice

    from

    We have just returned from a stay at the Menzies Belford and would definately recommend it. We booked direct with the hotel and got a fantastic deal for 2 nights including breakfast and dinner on both nights for a very reasonable rate.

    Great Stay

    from

    I recently stayed at the Bedford hotel in Edinburgh and was pleasantly surprised when i checked in. The room was lovely and had all the amenities required. Breakfast was great, alots to choose from and service was good. The hotel is lovely and the rooms are nice and warm. We had a relaxing and peaceful stay at this hotel.

    Excellent Customer Service

    from

    I booked this venue with some concern, having never booked over the internet before. We stayed at the venue for a long weeked with our one year old daughter. I was very pleased with my choice. Believe nothing you have heard before about the Scots....

    Glad to check out

    from

    If this is a 4 star hotel i wouldn't wish to stay in a 3 *. This hotel claims to have been newly refurbished, I find this hard to believe as the window was badly cracked, carpet stained, duvet cover stained, wallpaper torn and only tepid water in for the bath to name but a few problems. For the price they asked and what they say they offer on their web site I was very dissappointed. Certainly not value for money. I'll not be back!

    Great breakfast

    from

    we stayed 4 nights and the place was comfortable and the breakfast terrific. The food and drinks at the adjoining pub/bar (?unrelated although recommended by staff) were both expensive and ghastly. the hotel mistakenly allocated our room to someone else who walked in with his bags whilst we were there which was unnerving. the rooms were very hot and staff didn't let us know until the day before we left that we could get them to fully open windows (after signing a disclaimer if we fell out).

    The heat is on!

    from

    We stayed in the Menzies as a birthday treat. The staff were friendly and the bar and lounge surroundings were very pleasant. The breakfasts were varied and we wold not have any complaints but for the tropical climate of the room. The windows provided little relief and we were awake all night. We got a fan from reception but still the heat was stifling.

    Aside from this we would return to the hotel and found the staff a great credit to the hotel!!!

    Thanks for a wonderful time

    from

    This was a three night city break arranged as a birthday treat and we weren't disappointed. The taxi driver who took us to the hotel from the airport commented on our good choice of hotel so we were happy that we had chosen a fairly decent one. When we arrived we were greeted warmly and check-in was very easy and efficient. Particularly appreciated the phone call from reception after we had been in our room for a little while to check that it was all to our satisfaction. Reception area, lifts, rooms, in fact entire hotel was spotless, very modern and tastefully decorated/furnished. You can tell it has recently been refurbished with no expense spared. We loved the room. We asked for a quiet room and were delighted with it. Lovely big comfortable bed and ample space for two. Agree with previous comments about stuffy rooms but in my experience unless rooms are air-conditioned hotel rooms are always stuffy. Window opened enough to provide some ventilation though.

    Fantastic time in a fantastic hotel!

    from

    The hotel is situated in a brilliant setting for a quiet stay in Edinburgh. It is around a 10-15minute walk to Princes Street with a few brilliant views along the way.

    Good hotel but !!

    from

    Food excellent but pricey, Drink prices exorbitant, Scottish staff good, room allocation poor (ashtray and smoke smell in a n/s room), rooms too hot (even in January). Reject a room near reception if you want a good nights sleep !!
