Stayed with my partner for Hogmanay, we booked in Apr last year through a hotel search site, fortunately it allowed us to book for 1 night rather than the minimum stay of 2 or 3 nights that other places were charging due to the New Year. We gave them a call in Oct to confirm our booking and was given... More

We got shown to our room which was an ensuite with twin beds, the only room with an ensuite all the other rooms had showers etc in a separate room next to them. The room was really dusty and... More

We were a group of 6 people and we were accommodated very nicely across different rooms - some of which were ensuite and some had a private bath outside the room. The rooms, corridor and kitchen were all very... More

Come up from Manchester and stayed weekend for a 64th birthday treat in a twin ensuite room. We arrived at Waverley Station and walked 25mns easy up the main street and Sakura is the first house in West Preston St, really easy to find. It is in a safe area with shops, restaurants etc. It is close to the walk... More
