After bragging to my long-time girlfriend about how wonderful Edinburgh is, I finally convinced her to take a long over due vacation with me from our home in California.
With the pressure on me to deliver, I researched B+Bs in Edinburgh and found One Royal Circus here on Trip Advisor. I could not have made a better choice!!!
Upon our weary arrival after a long flight, we were warmly greeted by the owners Mike and Susan. They instantly made us feel personally welcomed into the amazing, centrally located New Town property.
Though historic on the exterior, the interior has a very distinctive modern appeal while still preserving its original character of high ceilings and crown moldings. A large skylight situated over the central stairs crowns the tastefully appointed B+B. Our beautiful bedroom featured a totally comfortable bed with luxurious linens. The bathroom had a cool, minimalist feeling.
Breakfast was fantastically prepared and we made new friends every morning as we sat in the kitchen area sipping some great, great coffees. Mike and I ended up sipping a couple brandy's together late at night, and I enjoyed playing pool in the Parlor area with him while listening to some hip music on their wireless system.
All in all, I must say that we were totally sad when we left One Royal Circus after our week in exciting Edinburgh...but hey, my girlfriend and I have since became engaged and we are planning on incorporating some of their design ideas into our own home as a fond memory of our stay!!!
