The Howard Hotel Edinburgh
The hotel is small, with eighteen bedrooms, which are named after streets in Edinburgh. They are all quite different and our traditional double room was Melrose and we loved it, with its large canopied bed and tasteful drapes, little writing table, and comfy couch and most of all the three windows overlooking George Street. It was spacious and relaxing with a lovely bathroom with a great big tub and also a shower…
Read the feature on the The Howard Hotel Edinburgh – highly recommended.
Some great trips further afield
“‘Le Selve’ looked just fantastic, remote and peaceful with plenty of space, a lovely pool and incredible views. The villa was beside the village of Castiglione – a very old place built high in the mountains of Garfagnana and situated a few miles beyond Castleneuvo, the main town of the Garfagnana region. A little path from ‘our’ place provided a short cut to Castiglione, John and Liam got into the habit of strolling down each morning to pick up some fresh bread and milk at one of the few shops/cafe. They quickly struck up a friendship with the locals and often the boys brought back a little gift like some lovely butter or a special type of bread.”
