"Could be anywhere innit?" Sheraton Grand Hotel And Spa Edinburgh Tip by Kettleman

Sheraton Grand Hotel And Spa Edinburgh, Edinburgh: 2,538 reviews and 7 photos


Stayed at yon establishment on a business trip to asset strip some company offices and warehouses.

Hotel is okay and quite busy but there's hardly a Scot to be seen on either side of the client/employee barrier.

Unique Qualities: I was lucky enough to have a view of the house on the hill that the Scots laughingly call a castle.

Admittedly it was a partial view and entailed standing on a chair and looking over a nearby roof, but there was a view of yon Hoose.

VT Member Han85 doesn't agree with my assessment of the Castle. His opinion is as valid as the next man's, however, the Norman Castles such as Arundel and Warwick are far more imposing. Sorry Jock.
