There are a few option one has - one can choose to stay indoors and enjoy a hotel stay or one can choose to explore a beautiful and culture rich city of Edinburgh and pick a cozy B&B for an English/Scottish home feel...I chose the latter one on my 2nd visit to Edinburgh.
I tumbled upon this guesthouse on laterooms as I was struggling to plan a last minute 1 night/2 day trip from london before my sister went back to India.
A cute little Victorian house and reasonable priced for bank holiday, I sure wanted my sister to feel the Scottish welcome, and she got it indeed!
Situated only fifteen minutes walk from the heart of the city as they say, I bet that we Indians walk that 15 minutes for atleast half hour.. Nonetheless, an easy taxi ride from rolay mile/coach station/princess street, this warm and friendly family run guesthouse had a small (cute again) room with twin beds on the top floor.
The inside is floor to floor carpet(royal eye pleasing red if I remember), feels like you are actually staying at someone's house.
I think every floor has 2-3 rooms, apparently the floors have common bathrooms that is something I had not known. Nonetheless, everything was nice and clean, in the room, bathroom and the dining area, so I have no complaints there.
We had to check out at 6:00am to do a highland tour and the breakfast generally starts later than that!
The gentleman who attended to us was very reasonable and attended to us on our odd request of getting something to eat at 6am as well.
The window were the slant ones, and it did win my little sister's heart when she saw the most eye pleasing pitter patter of rain!
There is bus service that connect you every 3-5 minutes to the city centre, the neighbourhood is quiet and away from the hustle bustle, so the chances of getting a good night rest is always on the cards indeed..
