We arrived in Edinburgh on the train from Glasgow at the Haymarket Station, which was just a block from the Grosvenor Gardens. The B & B is convenient to stores and restaurants, and more importantly, was within walking distance to Murrayfield Stadium, which was where we were seeing the Oasis concert. We had booked 2 rooms, one of which was a double. Since there were 2 doubles available, we were shown both and allowed to choose. The rooms were large, clean, and beautifully decorated, Each of the rooms was different, with antique furniture and big, comfortable beds. We were given our own keys so that we could come and go as we wished. The hotel is located in "New Town" (which we were told is only 400 years old!) so it was a rather long but very pleasant walk to "Old Town". We saw some very historic and beautiful gothic structures, graveyards and churches, and of course, Edinburgh Castle, which is perched high atop the city and visible from all over. Our favorite pub in Old Town was called "World's End", because it sits where the wall of the city had been in early days, which no one ventured beyond. After refreshments, we visited the Royal Edinburgh Gardens, which I highly recommend. Being a long way from Grosvenor Gardens by this point, we took a cab back. We had a nice evening followed by a second restful night, and were very pleased with the full Scottish breakfast, made to order, in the morning. The management and staff at the hotel could not have been more pleasant, helpful and friendly. They answered questions, gave directions, gave travel tips and were generally the ideal hosts. I would definitely recommend the Grosvenor Gardens and would be more than happy to visit again next time I'm in Edinburgh.
