    We were upgraded to a large room with a view of the castle. Really couldn't have been better. The Reception staff were great and recommended a great Indian Restaurant within walking distance. We would definitely go back.

    Old Town
    Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
    labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
    this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
    visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
