Masson House is located on a campus of Edinburgh University and is therefore not a traditional B & B or a hotel, more like converted student halls. This is certainly worth bearing in mind. The room was not particularly large and I felt the bed was quite small, but then I had been in a newly built Premier Inn the... More

Clean and simple room, a slight halls of residence feel but very comfortable. Staff very friendly and informative and an excellent breakfast. A 10 min bus ride to the centre with very regular buses. We walked to the centre and took 20 mins, plus a great pub opposite.

Masson House When we booked back in Australia we did not know that this superb B and B was part of the Edinburgh University's halls of residence. This is a really good place to stay. Its strengths are its location (bus stop outside, or 20 minute walk into Royal Mile, next to fantastic Arthur's Seat running and walking tracks, next... More

Superb breakfast selection! Absolutely nothing short of perfect! The room however was not very big and the shower temperature was inconsistent, but a nice bed and nice and clean. Definitely recommendable.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days and my overall rating is very good for a short stay. The breakfast was very nice and generous in its quantity and the staff was very helpful and friendly. I do not give an excellent rating as the room could be improved. The room is a student room with new furniture. The... More

It is a very good place to stay for a short break. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was basic and clean, but the shower drain was blocked. There is a typical scotland coffe break. It is a good hotel for the price!

Few nights stay after a Hihglamd hiking vacation. Typical accommodation, bit worn out and you could hear the doors opening and closing. Own bathroom/WC was a plus. Bed was good and breakfast really fullfilling. Breakfast was served in University cafeteria buffet style. Bus stup just few meter away from the yard area, good connection to city center. This is kind... More

We stayed at masson house for a night as it was the only hotel that we could find on a late booking. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was basic but clean, the breakfast was excellent. A good choice and the fry up was fab. We will definitely stay again.
