Not as bad as some make out,clean enough,the breakfast is not cooked but you know that.Owners were nice with us.We did not like the beds because we are spoiled by the one we have at home.To be honest if this was costing about £30 that would be fine,but because it was Edinburgh and festival time,and no where else to stay...

I stayed here for one night. Cost me 50 pounds. There is a shared bathroom. This place is closer to the Edinburgh Airport than other hotels. Breakfast was a cold one: 2 fruit cups, 2 juice boxes, box of milk, two packets of cheese, two croissants. Since I was only staying for one night, it was good for my needs.

Our accommodation was effectively 'tacked on' to the garage. This 'lounge' was a lean-to conservatory with a corrugated plastic roof. The carpets were stained and peeling off the... More

We stayed there for one night. Had a room on the first floor. The room was very very cramped with no space to move about, we had to be sitting on the bed all the time. The common bathroom and toilet was probably bigger than our room. We checked in at noon and was given the breakfast for next morning... More
