I liked being about 12 blocks south of the center, it worked really well for us. Bus system is great and is less than a block from the stop. Wonderful couple running the place and were very helpful and kind. Breakfast was very good, freshly cooked to order and many options were there (including haggis). Be aware that the family... More

Friendy and helpful hosts, great breakfasts all set in a comfortable and cozy B&B. Just a great place to stay. I would definitely stay here agin. Edinburgh is a great city with lots to see and do. Climbing Arthur's Seat is a must.

Our best stay in Scotland! Lizzie and Gary are so friendly and they go out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. The room was clean, comfortable, and charming. Wi-Fi worked well. There were many breakfast choices and everything we tried was delicious. We would go out of our way to stay here again!

We spent a weekend at this delightful guest house, which is very close to the City centre. The rooms are clean, spacious and well-decorated. As mentioned in previous reports the breakfasts are a delightful treat. On Sunday the daily brekkers special was Eggs Benedict. It was much better than that served at top celeb haunt "The Wolseley!"

Gary and Lizzie are simply stellar hosts. Every accommodation was made, they readied our room early, breakfast was delicious, and they packed us a takeaway breakfast for our early departure. The room was plenty spacious for two, with a wonderful view as well (looking out the back of the house). Plenty of great restaurants and pubs nearby, and Gary &... More

We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed a great breakfast everyday. Gary & Lizzie are excellent hosts. In addition to the regular breakfast menu they also offered a daily breakfast special. They arranged for a cab for us, made change if we needed it for bus fare and packed us a take away breakfast the day we left early to... More

We stayed here for five days while vacationing in Scotland. Gary and Lizzie are the perfect hosts. The breakfasts are wonderfully prepared and vary each day. The room was a little tight but clean and tidied each day. It is easy to get to the attractions with the bus service just down the corner.
