clean and comfortable, good staff.
No TV in the rooms and the front road is very noisy due to it being a cobblestone road.
don't stay here if you are driving, there no parking without have to feed a parking meter every 4 hours.

I made a decision not to take any photos this afternoon but just wander around and soak the place up. Sometimes it's easy to get so caught up in capturing the moment that you forget to enjoy the moment. So I just aimlessly strolled around admiring the buildings, laughing ...
... first really beautiful day since I'd been here, a 'sweltering' 27 degrees Celsius (do the math and you will find that is about 77 degrees Fahrenheit. But here, it is sweltering - the air is full of moisture and Oregonians know what a wet heat feels like.) I had taken my train to Croy and walked the few miles to Kilsyth where I stayed at the Boathouse Inn (silly me, I actually thought the hotel was ON the water, not BESIDE the water...). Anyway, in the morning, I started ...
... He took us around the old town of Edinburgh, past churches, parliament buildings, and statues. There are a lot of statues of people around the town, who had never even been to Edinburgh, and had nothing to do with the place! Apparently this is because Edinburgh was so pretentious back in the day, that they just put up statues of people they thought they were similar to.. Like Alexander the Great! We stopped for lunch in the grassmarket, which is a stretch of road with heaps ...
