We stayed at the Old Waverley simply because it was across the road from Waverley Station and we were catching a train the next morning. The hotel is old and a bit tired. Our room did have great views across to the castle and was...More

Edinburgh is a great city of magnificent views, history and institutions. It also has the Fringe Fest! The hotel was a haven after long walks, bus tours and dealing with lots of people. The menu was a delightful variation on Scottish recipes and the food...More

look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
