look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old

Depends on the booking. I booked through a booking site and could choose between two prices - one with breakfast included and one without. Breakfast there is really good though, and well worth the price.
