          This is a very nice Hotel and the staff so very friendly and helpful.
          My room was very comfortable.
          I would recommend it for it's cleanliness, comfort, and close proximity to the train station and also walking distance to many historical places.

          It was central and right next to the train station, but not very nice. The staff kept on making mistakes with our booking and trying to charge us for things that we didn't order. Don't be fooled by the images on the website either.

          This was simply a small weekend trip to Edinburgh, where we simply strolled around the streets of central Edinburgh - sightseeing, eating and drinking, and shopping.

          However, it would be better to have a few more days to see a few other sights like Arthur's Seat and the other museums.
          A car we also be very useful because we could've …

          We just did some more wandering around after everyone else finished up the tour, we went to some cool art gallery, but only got about 15 minutes to explore it, because it was closing up for the day. We decided to walk back to the hotel instead of taking ...

          ... and out. Typical palace with the tapestries and gilt framed paintings, oak paneling and stuccoed ceilings. The highlight was the suite of rooms occupied by Mary Queen of Scots, where her secretary met his grizzly end. There is a brass plaque that marks the spot where he was stabbed multiple times. The palace grounds are also lovely, and we went outside to see the ruins of the Augustinian Abbey established by King David I. Done touring, we went to the cafe ...
