Stayed February for the rugby, good location half hour slow walk to town, bus stop outside, rooms clean and comfortable, breakfast great and host's even better. Would recommend this hotel anytime and will be going back again.

Stayed for New Years and was exactly what we were looking for. A great central location with easy bus routes into the centre. Room was great and breakfast even better. Rhona and Brian looked after us so well, even lent us change for the bus when we didn't have the right money!

From the moment we arrived Rhona greeted us and couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortBle. Breakfasts were hearty and delicious and a great way to sort the day before exploring Edinburgh. Rooms were spotless and comfortable and very conveniently located with buses stopping outside every few moments. A very comfortable stay, thanks Rhona

Good value and the lady that runs it was lovely (checked the bus times for us when we arrived so we could get to the gig as we'd arrived late due... More

The B&B is not too far from the endinburgh centre, just alright. Our room was quit large, but what makes this place special, is the hostess. She is a very nice, warm and pleasant woman. The atmosfere was relaxed.
