FINDING THE HOTEL
I do like Edinburgh as a city but, like any big city, if you don't know where you are going then you are a major danger on the road.
After irritating several drivers, we saw Festival Square.
We were there!
Or were we?
It transpired that whilst we could see the hotel, there was no way we were going to get to it with ease.
A signwe saw a sign for the hotel but then nothing more, and ended up in a car park which belonged to another hotel.
By keeping the hotel in our sights and with a lot of positive thought, we got to the car park, and in we went.
At first sights, it was not encouraging. The car park is one of those very dark very dingy car parksvery square and not at all easy to drive roundthe kind where there are 3 spaces the a column on each side so you always thin someone's car will get scraped.
Once we were out and about and got our bearings, it was obvious that we had made a good choice.
the exterior is well mainatined with an imposing entrance and the hotel is close to many local amenities:
City Centre 0.1km
Princes Street Gardens 0.1km
Museum of Scotland 1km
The Royal Mile 1km
Museum of Childhood 2km
Ediunburgh Castle 1km
So...not far to walk!
