We stayed to attend a gig at the corn exchange. Sandra, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful in offering advice on how to get there, bus timetables etc.Room was clean and tidy with refreshments including tea,coffee and snacks. We had out own key for access also so no worries about disturbing others on our return. Beautiful building and a... More

I stumbled across this amazing venue by chance after being annoyed by the travelodge i was staying at in the City Centre. The travelodge was more expensive with no parking and no internet access, and everyone is aware of the poor quality food that is served as breakfast, I got my keys to the room abd walked into a room...

Artii 100, who's write up slated the Old Schoolhouse B&B has their location completely mixed up! The location that was mentioned is a HOSTEL not a bed & breakfast. I can understand their being dissatisfied with that type of accommodation. The Schoolhouse B&B is a comfortable,clean,warm & cosy place giving above standard of care & attention.The breakfast was up to... More

Unfortunately my room was right by a busy road. I was woken up many times throughout the night. Apart from that it was lovely. Small but big enough. A lovely breakfast and nice snack by the tea facilities in the room. Great tv service as well. Lovely warm water in the shower. Bottled water available and home baked treats for... More

The only good thing about this hostel was the location and its affordable prices. The reception and the actual hostel are situated on different addresses so on arrival we stopped with the taxi to check in and get our keys but we are told that the person responsible for check in it is not there and supposedly he will come...

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful friendly family and a great apartment. I couldn't believe one of the reviews only awarded this place 3 stars. Of course we are all entitled to our own individual views of the property but if I was the owner I would be so disappointed. Disappointed because the place is very clean, comfortable and is complemented by the... More

From reading others' reviews I think the rooms must be very individual... We had a wonderful two room apartment with direct street access. Clearly 'fashioned' out of a basement space, a nice size sitting room was complemented by a bedroom dominated by a huge (and extremely comfortable) bed. It's been created on a budget, and the not the 'Country Life'... More

I loved this B&B. Colinton is a lovely and very green part of Edinburgh with plenty of free parking and bus service running every 15 minutes (even night busses running 'til 4am I believe). We stayed on a Saturday night and it was the only place we could find at short notice, and that didnt require a 2 night minimum... More

The room is entered from an outside door so one can come and go at any time. The peculiar thing is one walks directly into the shower room and then into the bedroom. As there are no opening windows or extractor fans the ONLY way to ventilate this toilet is by opening the door to the street. There is a... More
