Edinburgh
Hotel was lovely. We had a standard double room and it was a good size with plenty of storage , the bathroom was great, with separate shower and bath. Bed was really comfortable. We had not been to Grassmarket area of Edinburgh before and there were so many restaurants, bars and unusual little shops on our doorstep. We had a fantastic time and would come back to this hotel again.
