Located with easy access to city centre (bus stop is only a minute or two away - we walked approx 25/30 mins.). Hosts were helpful with local information and services. Would... More

Worth a return trip to visit with Jerry and Bill. They give personality a whole new meaning. Talk about people with no issues in life. You start the day feeling great just seeing them and head out to explore Edinburgh. Many of the most famous sites are within a short walk. What I liked was just how clean everything was... More

Great hosts, great room, great breakfast and great location. We highly recommend this quiet B&B. We were warmly welcomed upon our arrival and briefed on nearby eating places and the 3 bus routes from the nearby stop to down town and the Royal Mile. The room was very comfortable with almost instant hot water in the bathroom. The breakfast was... More

A great stay, lovely hosts that recommended great places to eat. Room and amenities were good with an excellent cooked breakfast. The location was excellent within easy reach of the town centre. I would highly recommend this hotel.
