          The Old Waverley Hotel is right on Princes Street across from the park and the Scott Monument. It was easy to access from the airport via the tram which stopped just two blocks from the hotel. Reception was up a flight of stairs but there was help available with bags if you needed it. Our room was a family room on the back of the hotel right next to a construction site. It was very noisy during the day. Luckily there was air conditioning so we could close the windows and still have it cool enough for sleeping. The room itself was lovely with a great bathroom. There were three single beds which suited us just fine. The hotel did not offer a free breakfast of any kind. We bought our breakfast at a Sainsbury's grocery store just around the corner. We had to hand in our key when leaving the hotel and show a paper at the desk to get it back. Being there during the Tattoo and the Fringe Festival it was very noisy with people out and about at all hours and fireworks going off from the castle every night but that is part of being there at that time. The hotel is very well situated for walking to the old city and the new city. It is close to shopping and restaurants on Rose Street.

          ... I was quite happy to drop it off and let her do it for only a few extra quid. I walked home from the launderette with 2 nearly empty bags, and eventually met up with Kev and Erin at our B & B. The place was quite nice, with about 10 rooms and a dining room with a nice eastern European chap (Damien) who ran everything. Our room was quite large, however had a double bed and two single beds so most of the room was taken up by the beds. We got ourselves organised and headed in to ...

          ... attached to the ends, and she had never seen a gun before and every time they moved the guns from one shoulder to the next they shouted something unintelligible. It was intimidating, but she persevered. The entrance sign said admission was 16 pounds, and we weren't in the mood to spend money on anything that wasn't food or souvenirs. Deciding that we were ready for food, we traced our steps back down the Royal Mile towards where we had seen a place where the food was cheap ...

          ... at home. Ross, the owner, is lovely and so welcoming and helpful. Great first Bed and Breakfast!!

          Yesterday (Tues) we spent a lovely morning exploring the Royal Mile, seeing where our Tattoo seats are, counting countless Cashmere shops and we also went on a short Vaults tour. That tour wasnt all that interesting and we think the guide pretty much made things up as he went along (we were the only ones onn the tour).... we plan on a better vaults tour tomorrow.
