Today we explored Edinburgh Castle. That's by far was our coldest day. The wind was absolutely freezing. We had a guided walk around this amazing castle perched on hard volcanic rock over looking Edinburgh. To warm our insides after the bone chilling coldness of Edinburgh Castle we decided to go on the Scotch Whiskey Experience. We learned how …

Hull to Edinburgh via Whitby

As there is nothing to do in Hull we left early in the morning especially as the driving time today to Edinburgh would be approximately six hours. We went away Alan suggested over the Yorkshire moors and out to Whitby. We're both so glad we took his advice is the drive was majestic and picturesque. I think Whitby is one of the prettiest sea side …

Castles, Haggis and Rugby, aye

... of the stadium is really different to home. When we got there, they were showing the Six Nations game between England and Italy on a big screen. All the drink and food was sold in tents outside the stadium itself, which is different to home. People just wander around before the game and it was an amazing atmosphere. We picked up some match programmes and Eddy bought a Scottish jersey. About an hour before kick off we headed to grab some food and then went to our seats. I bought ...

Our last day in Edinburgh

A travel blog entry by cbieri

...we arrived around noon and looked for about 1.5 to 2 hours before finding a little bed&breakfast.

Then we went to the downtown and experienced Edinburgh with sunshine and no rain at all :-) it was even pretty "hot" :-) hehe... although that wasn't over 24 celsius....

    Great location, average looking hotel


    Got a great last minute deal of 26GBP per night in a double room via their website, so that was excellent! The room was clean and spacious, but the building and the interiors looked dull.

    On the day of my check out, I didn't get back to the hotel until 4pm because of traffic conditions, by the time I packed up all my stuff and went to check out, it was already 5pm, but the staff there was very nice and did not require me to pay for an extra night. Will stay there again.

    Nice but noisy


    Stayed at this hotel Saturday night (06/11). Check-in was simple. We were travelling with a baby and asked if a cot was available. It was delivered to the room immediately. Room was clean. Tea/coffee facilities in room. Good location for tourist sights. Only problem was street noise late at night (until about 2am). You can hear the traffic and people talking in the street even with the windows closed and curtains pulled. The rooms on the other side of the corridor would be fine I imagine. We didn't request breakfast the night before and it was no problem to have it the next morning. We just paid at reception then went through. Breakfast selection (for 6.50 and kids free) was good - croissants, toast, tea, coffee, hot choc, sausages, bacon, egg, tomato, baked beans, hash browns, good range of cereals, yoghurt and fruit. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again if guaranteed a room that is not on the street side.

    Bargin Break


    Booked a bargin break with BMI baby and stayed at the travellodge. Cost £17 by taxi to get there and £13 return taxi if you dial the number they give you on arrival. Great location and rooms were clean and spacious. Recommend the buffet breakfast for £6.50pp which you have to book on arrival it was great value and it was eat as much as you like. Negative is to leave luggage there after midday on day of departure cost £3 per bag. We had a evening meal in The Wee Restuarant just around the corner which was really nice and cost £51 for 2 courses and 2 drinks which werent bad. Recommend the City of the Dead tour. If you want a great romantic meal try the Witchery Restaurant near the castle, did not eat there but it looked fab but a little expensive at £28 pp for a main dish, worth it for special occasions!!! The travellodge is what you expect and the in house bar is an added bonus and very reasonable.

    Basic, Central and convenient.Travel Lodge Edinburg


    My Wife and I stayed at the Travel Lodge in Saint Mary Street,Edinburg for two nights.Although the Hotel is basic accomodation.It was very clean and convenient to all the local attractions as it is just off the Royal Mile in the heart of Edinburg.

    I wolud stay there again with one reservation ,I would specify that I require a room to the rear of the Hotel as it is on a main cobblestoned street with lots of traffic through the night and should probably have triple glazing fitted to reduce the noise level from the street.

    The staff were very helpfull and did move us to a rear room for the second night when requested.

    Edinburg is a vibrant city steeped in History with lots to do and see.Found a great Tea shop called Has Beans in cannongate street on the Royal Mile

    Not Home From Home


    This hotel is relying a lot of the international Travelodge brand, a superb location and appearing to be cheap.

    Bare-Bones but Big Towels


    We stayed at the Travelodge for two days in mid-July 2004. The room had a queen bed and a sleepsofa. It was pretty bare-bones - for instance, there was one miniscule bar of soap, no shampoo, etc. But the towels were big and they had a towel warming rack.

    Clean, centrally located


    This hotel is nothing to write home about, but it's immaculately clean, cheap by UK standards, centrally located, and quiet. It's a generic hotel in an ugly building on St. Mary's, but within walking distance of everything in the city. We arrived by train and walked to the hotel. We stayed here two nights with our 17-month old and found the staff to be friendly and the accomodations well-maintained. There's a great vegetarian restaurant (David Bann's) across the street and lots of cafes nearby.

    Mildewy, noisy room in disrepair


    Convenient location, but our room was terrible. Bathroom vent was broken and thus the loo and the rest of the room reeked of mildew. We had to buy some disinfectant at the nearby grocery to cover up the stench. Almost impossible to shower without getting water all over floor. Rickety sink fixture felt as though it might crack off when you turned on the water. Very noisy location, with traffic and bar patrons audible until 3 a.m. Front desk staff not terribly friendly. Bed was poorly made-up when we arrived. If you must stay here, insist on an interior room. And if you are staying for 3+ days in Edinburgh and want inexpensive accomodations, consider instead a self-catering flat elsewhere in the city, which will cost less, give you more space/quiet/privacy, and will all-in-all probably be of better quality than this bottom-rung hotel.

    Location and Value!


    Maybe three blocks walk to train, half a block from the Royal Mile spacious room for UK --not the Ritz, but a good value for a family.

    Travelodge, fine for the price


    All things considered, a very good value. This is a plain and ordinary hotel in a great location, just a few steps off the Royal Mile. Very close to the Palace, the park, the train station, etc.
