          The rooms were quite large however the beds were regular double. I do think however you could possibly fit 3 people and it should fit a cot easily as well. Hope this helps!

          Hi! Planning our first trip to Edinburgh (from the U.S.) and am wondering a few things: -Is complimentary breakfast included? -Are the rooms reasonable in size (not too extremely small)? -Are there Hairdryers, and Irons in the rooms? -What size TVs in the room? -Walking distance to 'main attractions' and plenty of shops/pubs/etc.? -Is it fairly quiet at night? Thanks so much from Portland, OR, U.S.!! :)
