          We stayed for four nights and felt we paid a fair price for a 4* in a great location. Our room overlooked the park and castle; amazing view. Room had a nice seating area , shower/ bath, tea/coffee facilities. Breakfast was solid but not spectacular.

          Princes Street and Gardens
          Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
          is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
          But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
          are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
          look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
