Spent a fantastic 3 days in this beautiful city centre with a friend celebrating 2 "BIG" birthdays!. The Thistle is a lovely small hotel set in the West End of Edinburgh. Far enough away from the noise/bustle of the city centre but not too far to be able to walk to all the major attractions. Annick (the owner) was very friendly and helpful and always prepared to have a little chat with any of her guests - she also willingly provided maps, suggestions of palces to visit and travel information. Having lived in the city for many years she obviously has alot of local knowledge! The room (22) was very spacious with 2 double beds and was on the 1st floor next to the breakfast room. Continental breakfast was included in the room charge and included tea/coffee, fruit juice, cereal, fruit salad, yoghurt, toast, croissant - perfectly adequate to start off a day of sightseeing! The staff were very friendly and attentive and always greeted you with a smile. There was even a bar to have a drink and relax at the end of a busy day! Edinburgh is a wonderful city and this hotel is a perfect place to stay whilst you're there!
