Tattoo was awesome

A travel blog entry by dambaa on Aug 09, 2013

Edinburgh Tattoo was great. A bit short as in not alot of content but was an awesome backdrop with the castle in the background. The NZ army band were great and the marching team from Wellington were very great.
Had a great look around Edinburgh with the hop on hop off bus.

Edinburgh amazing place

A travel blog entry by dambaa on Aug 08, 2013

FlightDublin to Edinburgh.
Great taxi driver from airport to hotel.
Downtown by 1:30pm with all the sites of the Edinburgh festival thousands of people everywhere.
world class comedians and musicians on every street.
The buildings are just amazing with the history mind boggling to a NZer.

... our way around the vessel.

The boat comprises five main decks. We start on the bridge and see the Admirals Cabin and then make our way down the various levels. The State Apartments includes the beautiful Sun Lounge and separate main bedrooms for each of the Queen and the Duke, each fitted with a seemingly very narrow single bed. Then there is the Honeymoon Suite which Charles and Diane used after their marriage in 1981 and this is more appropriately fitted ...

... hostel. Day 10 Canada day!!! Room was full again last night and they all left first thing in the morning. All but one guy that was passed out, pants and shoes in the middle of the room. It was an Irish guy that was here for a wedding. Said he went out and just got smashed. Lost his hat, saw a girl wearing it walking down the street next to a big dude. Apparently said " that's my hat" a few times arguing with this guy. But ended up with the hat and no black eye. Got up had a ...

    Awesome place to stay. Nice rooms and the best thing was the location.
    Close to centre of city and to Waverley St railway station. Would stay there again.
    They kept our some of our luggage while we were on an overnight tour of the highlands up to Inverness.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Parliament House Hotel Edinburgh

    A good place to stay

    from

    Stayed here for 4 nights over Hogmany 04/05. A fantastic location, everything you would want to see in central Edinburgh is within walking distance.

    The room was clean and tidy. The restuarant, MP's Bistro, was a bit of a hit and miss affair. One evening the food was awful, but on another evening the food was exceptional.

    I would recommend this place to family and friends. To sum up - clean, good location, old-fashioned service (in a good way), although the price per night over Hogmany (179 sterling per night) was a rip-off for what you got.

    Website is misleading

    from

    Parking in Edinburgh is a nightmare and webpage for hotel stated parking was available. What it didn't say was that it was several blocks away, around several one-way streets and that the cost was not included. Room was good size, but bathroom needed serious cleaning. Mold growing in grout, door that wouldn't slide, etc.

    Cosey Hotel and Great Location

    from

    My then Fiancee and I took a weekend trip to Edinburugh in April this year, I had never visited it before, I must say the Parliment House was a great hotel and very well positioned, not too far away from the centre but far enough for peace and quiet. We found the staff very helpful and co-operative. I would not advise anyone to have the full breakfast as it's too expensive for what it is, we complained about the eggs being underdone and we got a refund.

    We are going back to Edinburugh next year and will be staying at the Parliment House no doubt.

    Fine if you like stairs!!

    from

    We stayed in this hotel from 24-27 September 2004.

    Overpriced for what is on offer

    from

    Good location but the hotel doesn't really offer anything that a good B&B has on offer, hence we actually stayed in a B&B on our return to Edinburgh 10 days after our intial stay, which gave same room comfort level and standard of service!

    That being said it appears hotels in the area are no better -and we were generally disappointed at value for money that you can get from a UK hotel compared to France.

    So a good choice as long as its not during festival..as the hotel doubled room price once the edinburgh festival started -!

    Classy and comfortable

    from

    I stayed in this hotel on business and was very impressed. Great decor, comfortable rooms, and a huge bath I could have slept in!It's my first choice whenever I'm in Edinburgh.

    Cosy hotel in convenient central location

    from

    Very comfortable, reasonably priced hotel (cheaper to book via totalstay.com then directly through the hotel), just off the main Princes Street. The rooms were clean with 'quaint' decor - different patterned carpet and curtains! The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from Edinburgh's main attractions and shops, but be warned about the steep hill you need to walk up!

    A Bit Overpriced!

    from

    We stayed in the Parliament House Hotel over the August bank holiday weekend and were charged 160 Stg per room per night. This did not include breakfast. I found this to be a bit on the expensive side. The hotel is in an excellent location but is a bit dated and lacks facilities eg Bar. We were also a little astounded on the last day of our visit and having checked out one of our party wanted to buy a bottle of Coke. She was told she could not as she had already checked out and was no longer a resident!! V. Strange.......

    "My" hotel in Edinburgh

    from

    I have found the perfect hotel in Edinburgh: The Parliment House Hotel. This is where I will stay whenever I return. The rooms are excellent, very cozy decor and wonderful shampoos and soaps. My needs are simple though, all I desire in a hotel is: warmth, cleanliness, comfort, safety, good location breakfast and friendly staff. The Parliment House exceeded my expectations by fulfilling the above needs beautifully. It is very close to Waverly Train Station which makes it convinient, but it is also hidden away from the main traffic. The included breakfast was very satisfying with toast, fruit and cereal but I could have opted for a cooked breakfast too if I had wanted ( I didn't). The breakfast room had fun decor that really woke me up in the morning! My travel agent also got me a great deal on my room, great value for money. Yes, it is true that it takes awhile for the front desk staff to get to you but when one person is doing all the jobs required at the front desk I fully understand. Once the staff was able to get to me they were VERY friendly and VERY efficiant. I just can't say enough good things about this cozy, small and simple hotel!

    Good deal for its position

    from

    Good value off-season breaks at this hotel. Helpful staff. Quiet rooms despite closeness to Princes St. MORE than adequate continental breakfast so would not go for the overpriced cooked one esp. as there are some cheap eat-as-much-as-you-want breakfast places close by if you really want to stoke up. 5/10mins from the station so the dragging the case option is viable if you arrive there. Good starting point at the end of Princes St. for all sight seeing. Well positioned for that after breakfast jaunt up Calton Hill to clear the whiskey out of the brain!
