I booked and paid for two nights but couldn't stay after the first. The hotel was awful, tiny bed, completely different from what I saw on the websites. Rooms had a very strong smell. Left with a flu. Horrible horrible experience :(

This B&B is ideal for anyone visiting Edinburgh. You are only a 10 min walk to the centre. The lady who runs it is very accommodating. The rooms are tidy and clean. the beds were comfortable and the continental breakfast included is great for the price. Basically this place does exactly what it says on the tin; I was very... More
