... day we went to the famous Edinburgh Castle which was quite amazing. It is actually built extremely high up on an extinct volcano and held many prisoners of war and other important royal and military people. There were cannons lining the castle and lots of rooms inside full of history. The castle is still used for important occasions and even has a cemetery for dogs, which I loved. Next, was a quick stop at a cafe for a cheese and tomato toastie. After that ...

Harlem you what !

A travel blog entry by chrisandgail

... Harlem
today, if you can get passed the videos of students doing the "Harlem shake" -
or pretending they are, there is a real Harlem shake that is something to see –
then you will get the impression that there is a living splash of colour that
emerges from the standard city grey.

It’s also an area that’s up and coming in the cuisine that
it offers the Soul and Latin food that it is rightly ...

Fury and Redemption

A travel blog entry by dexterdriscoll


... were tragic. Almost none of our group enjoyed them. But none of our group myself included left them. Because it was by the Wooster Group and they are supposed to be "good" and intellectual. I'm so disappointed in myself for sitting through it.

After the awful films, one of the performers happened to show up and do another Q&A. It was as useless as the talk the day before. I honestly have nothing to say about any of the content I ...

Sunday and Monday in Lovely Edinburgh

A travel blog entry by rkzohm


... to provide focus to those that follow along. It was super fun to follow along the "fashion" guide as we located and learnt about different bits and pieces of clothing, accessory or otherwise associated with the fashion of the time. We spent 2 hours and then had to have tea at the gallery café to review our findings. My energy was flagging at this point and therefore we did take a pass on the Man Ray exhibit that was visiting and I think that I may regret ...

Last days in Edinburgh June 9 & June 10

A travel blog entry by nancya

Sunday morning bright and chilly we walk along the Leigh Walkway to the Botanical Gardens. We were early so watched dogs chase balls and greet each other..seems Scottish love their dogs and enjoy sports on Sunday morning - some tennis matches and runners. The gardens were spectacular well worth a visit. On our way back we chanced upon a street market where everything looked amazing. We grabbed a meat and ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Herald House Hotel Edinburgh

    Oh dear - you have been warned!


    What can I say - this was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

    On the plus side the staff were friendly and the breakfast was ok.

    However, the hotel is a bit of a way outside the city centre and situated beside a brewery which stinks out the whole area. The room was grotty and the mattress felt as if it was 100 years old. I simply could not sleep. We were on the ground floor, and could hear everything going on on the street outside. To top it all off our room was beside the laundry room with its numerous comings and goings and the world's loudest washing machine.

    Don't go here!

    Friendly and pleasant staff


    Have just had an overnight stay at this hotel. Room a little basic but adequate for the length of time spent in it. Shower and bathroom area was small but overall spotlessly clean.

    Brilliant breakfast - food excellent - served by pleasant and friendly staff.

    Our twin beds were clean and comfortable although the corridor outside our room was a little noisy late at night with other guests going to bed.

    I would have preferred accommodation closer to the city centre but during the Festival found I was out of luck. The Herald House Hotel came up on an internet search and I'm pleased to have found it. I can certainly recommend this hotel for a short stay in Edinburgh.

    Perfect for us!


    We were lucky enough to get tickets to the live 8 concert at murrayfield and this hotel was situated perfectly for us halfway between the stadium and the city centre.

    Our room was nice & clean; the bathroom was small but more than adequate for a 1 night stay.

    The breakfast was great.

    At £50.00 I think it was excellent value for money and would stay there again

    Quite nice actually


    Just got back from Easter holidays and 3 nights at Herald House.

    Skankiest hotel ever !!!!!!!!


    Oh my god!!! how did we end up at this hotel. Impossible to find. Not near to the city centre at all. Pretty average area. Rooms were poorly decorated and the shower was held on by elastoplast. Dirty tiles in the bathroom and dodgy smell. Nothing like the classy looking hotel on the website. Our advice is not to go to this hotel.

    We couldn't have asked for more friendly service...


    I chose this hotel purely by chance when looking for enough rooms to accomodate myself and 9 friends. On arrival we found the staff to be nothing but polite ane helpful, no matter how much we pestered them! I would definitely recommend this hotel for price, cleanliness and especially service. We all had a wonderful time in Edinburgh and vowed to come again. The fact that we had only good things to say about the accomodation was a great part of this. Also, Gerry the receptionist was very cute!

    Brilliant Little Hotel


    My partner and I stayed at the Herald House Hotel and I couldn't wait to offer feedback, as I chose this hotel over another based on the review at this web site. I'm happy to advise that we had a lovely time!!

    The staff were most helpful with any queries. The room was clean, neat and comfortable. The best bit was that the location is fantastic, just 10-15 minutes walk from town and if you're feeling a little tired, there's a bus stop about 1 minute away to get you into town. All this with a filling, tasty breakfast to set you up for the day.

    I would definately stay there again if visiting Edinburgh!

    Fantastic friendly place


    Family stayed here and thorougly recommended it. Staff were very friendly and happy to answer all queries. Disagree with above comments on breakfast, lots to eat and served very quickly.

    Pity about the breakfast


    Cheap but cheerfull hotel, good location but some rooms overlook the brewery. Room was small but at the price okay. could not sit on the john as it was against the shower and the wall, no leg room either side or in front.

    Pity about the Breakfast. It was advertised as a full scottish but was a half english. No dumplings, fruit pudding, black pudding or the like.
