I've Officially Been Possessed By a Ghost

... that I am the best at passing out. Nearly a pro. I told my mom that I was having a panic attack. I wasn't sure what was happening. I think it was a combination of the small quarters, large amount of people, and lack of fresh air. After a few minutes, I was able to sit and calm down and return to normal body temperature. However, it totally could've been a ghost.

Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

A travel blog entry by eric.suzy

In a city so ancient and so compact, there is an unbelievable amount of public green space! There are over 100 local parks in Edinburgh, some are fairly small like Charlotte Square or Granny's Green, while others are very large like The Meadows or Princes Street Gardens. The city of Edinburgh values this space recognizing that ...

Edinburgh = Auld Reekie and the nastiness

... which is hard to believe in all the success she has found recently. She is said to be the richest lady in all of England including the Queen.

The coach let us off, and we made the last bit of the climb on foot. Kirsten took us into the stands of what would be the setting of the Military Tattoo parade grounds. It was most unfortunate not to have booked the tour for the following week, in that the next group of Cosmos travelers would be experiencing ...

... Edinburgh, I had forgotten how prominent the castle is in the centre of town. Granted last time I was in Scotland was 1996. ( I didn't even have an email account back then). The first stop was SuperDrive to get my travel vaccinations (nothing like leaving things to the last minute). So after a typhoid shot, I am now out at ...

... Wood....yes the one Shakespeare wrote about in Macbeth ( there was a Scotish King Macbeth Shakespeare knew about)....the village of Dunkeld is a dream....we walked to the Cathedral...a beautiful structure....but it's surrounds are breath taking...lush lawns with elegant trees sloping down to a fast flowing wide river which, hit by the mid day sun...was covered in diamonds....we sat and ate a very memorable lunch on a bench seat ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Bonham Edinburgh

    Some dusting would not go amiss

    from

    This hotel is in a fantastic location - within walking distance of everything you could want to visit. It could do with some tender love and care. There are certainly housekeeping issues - it is superficially clean but our bathroom was very disappointing cleanliness wise. My daughter wrote her initials in the dust and a previous guest a week earlier (who had dated their name) had done the same. Behind the doors and under the radiators were white with dust. Typical hotel breakfast sitting out on burners. It is not particularly nice putting your bacon, which quickly cools, on to an unwarmed plate. We reported that our wash basin would not drain but it was not rectified during our stay.

    Great location

    from

    Just returned fron a weekend break at the Bonham. After reading the previous reviews we went with trepidation....... However, the hotel was great, nice large room with walk in wardrobes and a lovely bathroom. Breakfast was excellent and plenty of choice. The only gripe was the room was not as clean as one would expect, dusty radiators and skirting boards. Apart from that, very helpful accomodating staff and great location.

    Was I in the same place as other reviewers?

    from

    Very disappointing and more just about a 3 star rather than 4 star hotel in need of an overhaul. Problems from a far from clean bathroom which needed attention on arrival to giving up on a request for a second cup of coffee at breakfast. Limited and smokey public space which means you can be confined to your room. In November it was not appreciated that heating to the bedrooms was off most of the day. Failed on the detail eg hair wash bolted to the bathroom wall so you could not use it in the sink!

    Best avoided until they can sort themselves out. It could be so much better than it claims to be. Suggest the manager looks at Devonshire Gardens in Glasgow to see how it should be done!

    Brilliant

    from

    I recently came back from a long weekend at the Bonham, and would not hesitate to stay there again, in fact I have even recommended the hotel to my parents.

    The hotel staff were very helpful, and really went out of their way to provide and excellent service. The breakfast was lovely and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel was also within easy walking distance to the city centre and castle.

    Pleasant, but a disappointing

    from

    I booked for a romantic weekend away (via lastminute.com.....). On arrival the place looked great, well lit, stylish and in an excellent location for shopping, nightlife and general sightseeing in a quiet Edinburgh square.

    Chic and Stylish!!!

    from

    Quite location on the West End, but still close enough to walk to main attractions. Excellent breakfast. Rooms stylish with tall ceilings and interesting decor. I agree with the previous reviewer that the hotel could use alittle spring cleaning but other than that, I would definately not hesitate to stay here again.

    Excellent Hotel, but housekeeping needs attention.

    from

    I have just spent three very enjoyable days at the Bonham. The friendly staff could not be more helpful, and the food is excellent. My only criticism is that the housekeeping should be tightened up. Both my room and that of my companion were superficially clean, but on closer examination, could both have done with a spring clean. Drapes and upholstery were dusty, and the carpets needed a deep clean. Some of the common areas were showing signs of wear and tear too. A shame in such an otherwise wholly recommendable hotel!

    Great hotel. Got a great deal on the Hotel's own website. Lovely decor, very classy in a quiet area though very close to the city centre. The staff were very friendly and unobtrusive. Made my stay in an already great city even better. Fully recommended.

    Style/Comfort/Good Quiet Location

    from

    Booked this 1-night stay Monday 07.28.03 via the hotel's website.What a find! Good location, great decor, terrific staff, the most comfortable bed/pillows/linen.High tech:full satellite cable tv, complimentary internet access. Will stay again & have recommended it to everyone I've spoken to since my stay. Edinburgh is a lovely town to visit.

    Travelling solo or w/others.

    Terriffic hotel

    from

    One of our best hotel experiences within recent memory. The rooms were very tastefully decorated, the staff could not do enough for us, the food was wonderful, and the whole experience was quite special. An easy walk to Princes street yet totally removed from the city noises.
