Salisbury Green Hotel
Travel Blogs from Edinburgh
We started out around 9am and walked into the city, but did the Royal Mile - a road that goes from Holyrood (where the Royal stuff is on show) and walked up the hill to Edinburgh Castle. The sun was shining all day for us and it was lovely.
Edinburgh Castle was magnificent, they were setting up the seating ready for Edinburgh Military Tattoo …
Edinburgh is probably our next favorite place. The city is "brilliant" as the British would say, and we'd have to agree. It seemed like as soon as we crossed the border from England to Scotland the whole area changed. What was once very clean cut farm land and pastures, soon turned into forests and rolling hills. There were still the cut out areas …
... our next stop was Edinburgh 1½ hours away, or was supposed to be, however, the Royal Edinburgh Show was on and it seemed just about every Scot was headed for the showgrounds which we had to pass on the way in so we were held up in traffic for a while.
Finally we made it to Edinburgh but for such a short time. We only stayed one night and decided that our focus would be the castle, and what a focus. It was easy to spend hours there ...
... for the Australia v. Scotland game, Nick was telling me how good the atmosphere would be. He was soo right! It really is a unique experience compared to the rest of the sporting world - or what I know of it, anyway. When the national anthems are played, everyone sings. EVERYONE. And they all take such pride in it. Even the biggest of "manly" men (whatever that really means anyway) will be at a match, singing their **** off! As the opening ceremonies ...
... Lungburn St. To get up to the Royal Mile aka tourist street and where all my tours are leaving from, I have to do the very gradual winding climb. I posted a pic of a flight of stairs on FB which are the step equivalent of the street. I generally will stop once or twice to 'window shop' aka try to stop hyperventilating. So while I feel pretty sludgy and blah with the diet etc, I am actually doing a fair bit of exercise. There ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Salisbury Green Hotel Edinburgh
We stayed at the Salisbury Green for only a night as our final destination was close to the west coast of Scotland. However, it was a wonderful experience and we would definately stay there again.
Bon rapport qualité prix
Nous n'avons pas été déçus et nous avons déjà réservé au Chancellors Court via le même site pour le mois d'août. Cependant, ils nous ont prévenu que le parking gratuit n'était pas garanti, ce qui est dommage parce que c'est un avantage important.
We were not disappointed and have booked again in August for Chancellors Court on the same site. However, they have warned that free parking is not guaranteed which is a shame as it is a great bonus.
I have just returned from a romantic weekend stay in Salisbury Green (which is owned by Edinburgh university). I read many reviews and couldnt find any negative ones so I was expecting alot. I was going towards Pollock halls to check in but was glad to have been met at the entrance of the hotel by an extremely helpful and friendly staff member.
Loved Salisbury Green..Excellent
We stayed in Hotel Salisbury Green in April 2007 fm 6 th to 8 th..It was an wonderful experience.Beautiful modern rooms with huge bathrooms & excellent facilities..it is very well connected with the city centre as bus stops are just outside hotel..Bus nos 30, 33, 86 & few others take u to city centre..Breakfast was just too good..We also find customer service to b simpley great, as we lost our cell phone & Emily fm customer desk actually took the trouble to send my phone back to my address, for which I am so greatful to her..I absolutely loved this hotel & would recommend to everyone visiting Edinbourgh & is looking for a hotel to stay..Thumbs up to Salisbury Green..
This hotel will score good points on almost everything but for the reception and the fact that it is inside university halls of residence. Luckily we went on easter holidays and there were hardly any students about. There is no reception at the hotel and you have to check in and check out at pollock halls reception. If you are taking a taxi, make sure you tell the cab to take you to pollock halls reception. Bus no 30 and 33 take you right there from princes street. If you are checking in late, do let them know in advance - which is what I did.
been to edinburgh and stayed up there a few times. on this occasion we were going to see the fab damien rice and since it was around anniversary time I wanted to book somewhere nice.
I have just returned from an overnight stay at Salisbury Green and have nothing but praise for this superb hotel!
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night during a 4day tour of scotland. The hotel is a beautiful old building, with what looks like a fully refurbished interior. The rooms are kept to a very high standard, the garden views were lovely, the bathroom was high spec and we even had a small side room to be used as a dressing room with wardrobe and mirror! The staff are very friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious!
Lovely guesthouse in Edinburgh
Lovely big room with view over back garden. Ensuite was huge, great traditional Scottish breakfast too. Friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended!
