We stayed here bank holiday Aug for 2 nights. We were greeted by the very friendly owner who checked us in promptly. Our room i think was once a corridor with a backdoor next to one of the very clean and comfortable albeit a bit sqeeky single beds. The shower played up and went from being freezing to boiling for...

Booked this hotel for 2 nights after reading mixed reviews. I am a firm believer that what someone else likes someone else will hate, so went there with no expectations. The location wasn't so bad with buses running regular into the town centre or a taxi ride costing around £7. We knew when we got there that our Bathroom was... More

Room not clean. Shower was filthy. Discovered (too late) that sheets had blood on them. TripAdvisor won't let me go into details. We always try to stay at independent accommodation instead of Premier Inn but we are re thinking that policy! Please read the reviews before booking.

Clean and comfortable with complimentary tea and toast in the mornings. Very friendly. It was a 20 minute walk into the city centre, or there was a bus stop just over the road if you didn't want to walk.

The Mayville is an absolutely brilliant guest house. I had a couple of special requirements and they went above and beyond to make me feel welcome and special and give our stay that personal touch. The whole experience was top marks, if you're looking for somewhere to stay in Edinburgh you can book here with absolute confidence. Late check in... More

It was reasonably priced and food was good. ..The manager was helpful in providing information for site seeing in the area .We had 3 pleasant nights sleep in a... More

We booked this last minute and found it very good value for money for what we received. Our room was extremely spacious, the bed comfy and our host welcoming. The room wasn't as clean as I'd have liked, but for what we paid, I didn't expect much more. There have been some very harsh reviews on TripAdvisor, however I feel... More

The Mayville Guesthouse was ok and the manager very pleasant. After finding the guesthouse on lateroom.com we decided to go ahead despite some of the reviews that we had read. On arrival the Manager was very pleasant. The bedroom was clean enough but the bathroom was very tiny. Had I been there for Marie than one night I've have asked... More
