good location, very close to city centre. 25'walk but there is a bus stop opposite the hotel. At first night, the room was pretty cold due to a window problem but we had an extra radiator and when we told the reception, they fixed the window immediately. The staff was very polite and helpful.

Stayed here on a recent overnight trip to Edinburgh and from the first minute felt really welcomed by the owner, Colin. The room and large bed were comfortable and clean. Although small the bathroom had a large walk in shower. Great cooked breakfast. Overall excellent value in a friendly wee guest house type hotel, on my list for future visits... More

We stayed at this hotel last night. Upon arrival we were greeted by Colin, he was so so lovely and helped us up to our room with our bags. He ensured we had everything we needed for our stay. The room (12) was spotless, and really nicely decorated. The bed was so comfy! The only tiny problem was the shower... More

The new proprietor Colin Chan is a perfect host and will go above and beyond to make your stay very comfortable. It's just a 30 min walk to Princes Street and frequent bus links. The only thing is I would have preferred a key to my shower/toilet which is clearly signed as private so it's just for the single room,... More

Generally used to budget hotels when on my work travels, this was luxury in comparison. I had just travelled up from Dumfries after a 10hr stocktake with a couple of work colleagues and were greeted with a friendly and smiling proprietor. He asked us to sign a register and then showed us to our rooms. My colleagues rooms were at... More

Stayed here after a work night out in Edinburgh. Very friendly attentive staff. Lovely clean comfortable stay. Will definitely be back and recommending to others. Breakfast was not amazing but was good and filled a hole. Only one thing I could have been doing with a bottle of water in my room.

I called and spoke to the new owners as I had stayed here a couple of years ago, and liked the location, as well as the service and building. I was very impressed with Colin, he took my reservation, and when I arrived, I was greeted with a great smile and excellent service. My room was fantastic, the staff wonderful,... More

Our room was nice and very clean however there was a couple of things that we picked up on:The website states that it has an 'extensive Continental Buffet to your liking. Our buffet hosts a choice of fruit juices, large selection of fresh fruit, cereals, croissants and pastries and continental cheeses'. There was actually only 3 fruit, croissants - no... More

This hotel has just taken new owners this weekend. I think it will be even better than the previous reviews. The new owners are friendly and enthusiastic to get things right. Now a family business and looking to improve the inside and out it was good value for money, clean, we felt well looked after and would recommend to friends... More
