    Rooms were very small, en-suite absolutely tiny and not the cleanest of places. Staff were very rude taking breakfast plates away before finished with and no interaction at all. Won't be staying here again!

    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
    neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
    Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
    citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
    grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
    crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
