Stayed here on Monday night taking the opertunity to experience the fringe. I was not disappointed in any way. The owners were warm and friendly and the facilities were great . The location for exploring Edinburgh and Leith is perfect, and can be all done on foot.

My friend and I stayed there for the military tattoo. We were greeted by the friendly Mirella upon arrival, and our room was on the ground floor so no pulling heavy bags up the narrow staircase like some B&Bs I had stayed before. Great location and central to everything, a mere 15 minutes walk (uphill) will get you to Princes... More

A warm welcome when I arrived at thus B&B. the room was clean, bathroom small but clean apart from some black mould in a small area round the bath. The shower is very poor, ideal if you are around 5 foot, no pressure and kept changing from hot to cold. Great breakfast. 15 minute walk from the main railway station.... More

I will echo the positive comments from others regarding the great and friendly service from Mirella. Yes, the house is a bit old fashioned, and the breakfast room is basic, but I was very comfortable, and there was everything I needed in my room, and for breakfast. It was a perfect location for touring the East side of Edinburgh, and... More

I hesitated before writing a review but ultimately decided it could help other guests book a better room if they decide to stay here. We were here one night during our Edinburgh holiday, and although the host Mirella was very pleasant, we were less than thrilled with our room- due to size and location. It looked onto the street, and... More
