The guest house is in a great location, it's within a short walking distance to Edinburgh city centre, has a number of nice restaurants and pubs nearby, and offers parking. My husband and I were impressed with the double superior room, which was both spacious and comfortable. The staff were also very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Overall, a very pleasant... More

It is VERY clean (everything smells freshly laundered), fresh flowers everywhere, had a delicious breakfast with lots of selection, very comfortable beds. The owners were away but Chris was there to help. He is very friendly and provided an... More

From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome. It began with a long explanation about all the possibilities and things to see in Edinburgh + explanation about our room. The hotel is located 13min away from the centre, quite close to the tram line which takes you to the airport. The street in which the hotel is located counts... More

A very nice family owned B&B place, each room has its own bathroom, TV set, hair dryer, towel warmer and heated blanket. Internet access was flawless (at least in our room). Breakfast included, provided both by the owner (Mr Clive, a delightful host) and a very charming and helpful young lady. You even get to taste haggis, if you dare..... More

This a lovely guest house to be based for a stay in Edinburgh. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Our room was a very large family room at the front of the house with a large fireplace, 3 huge windows and a beautiful ceiling. Traffic noise is evident but this can be minimised by closing... More

Hair dryer, fridge in the room, tv - even a towel warmer and heated blanket. They even put drinking water and milk for tea in the fridge for you every day. Everyone who worked... More
