            Day in Edinburgh”

            Excellent stay at Royal Ettrick. The hotel sports a very warm and regal look inside with all flooring nicely carpeted. Wooden staircase was very nostalgic of the old time army messes. The room was perfect for a single occupant with a clean look and apt storage to hold one's luggage. The bathroom was clean and well furnished. The shower could have been a little larger. All in all, it was a complete steal for the price I had to pay for it. Great place!

            We arrived very late at night but they waited! Although the room is a touch small, because it is actually at the attic, we loved the attmosphere being there! All service are good including the WiFi signal still OK at the attic! Breakfast is lovely with Alpen Swiss Style Muesli where I couldn't have just few days ago when I am at Kempinski, Geneva, at 500 quid a night! Finally found a hotel I will go back to...
