            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!
