Edinburgh, where the buzz of Scotland's capital city sits in perfect contrast to the peaceful tranquility of the surrounding Lothians region. With Scotland's most famous castle dominating the city skyline, there is plenty to see and do with the perfect balance between all things traditional and contemporary. World-class museums and galleries, the …
... dance routines, but a touch of humour created much reaction from the crowd. Lochiel marching team also kept up to their reputation with some tricky moves and precise timing. I remember marching against this team when I was younger, of course not the same young ladies at the tattoo. They were the top NZ team back then too. Took lots of photos and after the show, caught the bus back to the campground (takes about an hour to get home on the late bus).
... the counter for a bit, he was a retired officer. I left them a patch and he gave me one that he had. He said that the uniform for the police in Scotland and England was nationalized and they got rid of patches so the only ones out there in circulation are old ones. He was not impossible to understand but it wasn't easy. He accent was thick and he talked really fast. We thanked him for his time and headed to Mary King's Close.

... much wiping out the clan system forever. That's kind of sad. We walked around the battlefield, where they had red flags lining one side, where the English frontline was, and blue flags for where the clansmen were, and all in between they had headstones for the fallen clans, clan leaders, and just graves marked with "mixed clans". It's a very sad story, and the wives and children of the clans weren't even allowed onto the battlefield to tend to the wounded. The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Edinburgh
This was everything I expected
This was everything I expected from a Marriott Hotel, as I have stayed in them before. Check in was quick and painless. The room was spotlessly clean with air conditioning and a king sized double bed, decent size TV, tea/coffee making facilities and the usual bathroom cosmetics.
I didn't eat dinner in the hotel but breakfast was brilliant with plenty of choice to suit all tastes and excellent service from the staff. The gym, pool, sauna and steam room were all clean and modern.
No complaints at all and I will always seek out a Marriott Hotel as priority as I have stayed in them in various countrys and found them to be consistent in terms of quality and service.
This hotel was great. The room was a little small but I wasnt in there that much so it didnt really matter. The really great thing was that the bus stopped right up the the driveway from the hotel. The bus came every 10 minutes so it was easy to get into the city and it wasnt expensive either. The hotel staff was wonderful. I would definitely stay here again.
Good for business travel
The hotel is well situated and even though the main Edinburgh-London trainline runs past the hotel ut didn't affect my stay.
The room are well appointed even if a tad small. I had an executive room where the only real diffeence was a desk in the corner of the room, as usual with these types of hotel the lighting could always be improved.
I cannot comment on the resturant as I only had a bar snack, which was pleasant but nothing out of this world.
It's a business mans hotels but would do for families having a short trip to the City
A modern hotel on the outskirts of the city with a lot of very good but also less good points.
My wife and i stayed here over the August Bank Holiday weekend 2004. The hotel is clean and modern and the room we were allocated was at the rear of the hotel overlooking a grassed area. The room itself was a good size and everything was clean and tidy. The staff were very helpful and approachable nothing seemed too much trouble for them.The gym and pool area is very nice and although the pool isnt that warm it was fine for me. The gym area is well equipped with all the muscle straining gear you could wish for. The only thing to watch out for in the hotel is the restaurant.We decided not to take dinner in the hotel after checking the prices (expensive) and ate out in Edinburgh for a lot less.Breakfast however is excellent in the hotel and i can heartily recommend it. Car parking is easy and plentiful and to save yourself a lot of bother get the bus into the city. It goes from outside the hotel on the main road about every 10 mins and only costs £1 it takes you bang into the centre of the city and is a lot less hassle than taking your car or paying large taxi fares.
We've stayed here 3 times now and we've always been happy with our stay. The rooms are spacious, and well appointed. The bar and restaurant offer a wide variety - the bar always seems busy on the weekends we've stayed there. There is a gym, pool & steam room, although the pool is not as warm as I would like, there is a hot tub you can jump into to get warmed up! The staff are pleasant and helpful - they quickly provided a folding bed for our child to sleep on which I'd forgotten to request when booking. Breakfast is an all-you-can-eat (hot & cold) buffet which kept us going all day!
Stayed here for 3 nights from 7th - 9th October 2004. Hotels located 5mins from the Airport. 15mins to the city centre by Bus.
We found the hotel good. The rooms were reasonable size and had been recently been refurbished. It has a gym and swimming pool though I didn't have time to try it.
Hotel also provided complimentary drop off to the airport.
I would recommend.
Great place to stay if you don't like to eat
We stayed at this hotel on October 4, 2004, our last night in Scotland.
Our room was fine and the staff was pleasant enough.
Our mistake was choosing to eat an $80 dinner in their main dining room. Service took forever, my soup was cold and my dinner salad was served without dressing. It almost took an act of Congress to get our check.
The next morning we received only one croissant with our Continental breakfast for two. We called to complain, but nothing happened. I said something at the desk while we were checking out, but no one cared. Well, I cared...
Okay if your desperate
The Hotel was about average for a 4 star, my room had a lovely view of the aircon unit from the Leisure centre so you can imagine the noise. The staff were help full but i think i would have prefered an adult instead of a child to serve me my £15.00 per head evening meal, which was not that special so on other nights i chose to eat out , by the way i think most of the other guests did as well.
On the plus side Breakfast was excellent.
Very Nice Hotel
A very nice, reasonably priced hotel in Edinburgh. The facilities were well-maintained and the rooms were very clean. We would recommend this hotel to others.
