From the moment you arrive at Pillars House till the moment you leave, you can be sure of hospitality of the highest order. Our visit coincided with the Edinburgh International Festival, a time when many hotels charge inflated prices. Not so, Pillars House. For the usual summer room rate, we had a perfectly comfortable, quiet bedroom with our own, adjacent, beautifully appointed bathroom. The room had fridge, microwave, safe and tea/coffee-making facilities. A nice added touch was a little bag of Edinburgh rock, a local delicacy. There was a parking space, kindly reserved for us at no extra charge, very useful in a city where parking is always at a premium. But best of all was the breakfast. Five different nationalities sat round a big table in the kitchen. Every conceivable taste was catered for. While I tucked in, with gusto, to the Full Scottish Breakfast, my wife had poached eggs on brown bread toast - all freshly cooked to perfection. There was also a great selection of fruit, juices and yoghurts, etc. for those who wished them, and lots of good natured conversation around the table. The whole experience, presided over by owner, Edna and her lovely assistant, Maggie, was a bargain and a delight.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Pillars house was originally built and owned by Crawford which were offices and a spirit store in the late 18th century. Most of the building still has a lot of its character left as you can see as you walk in through the main entrance. The courtyard where our free parking is situated was traditionally used as the delivery entrance where the horse and carts brought the whiskey from the highlands to be blended. ... more less
