I stayed here for 2 nights based on previous Trip Adviser reviews. I was not disappointed - it was exactly as described and great value for money. The room was clean and comfy and though I shared a bathroom it was no problem and I never saw the other residents. Morag was lovely and very helpful. A nice continental breakfast... More

Stayed here for 4 nights during the Fringe festival. Very, very good service from our hostess and very clean. Had a nice room and the guesthouse was in a quiet street close to princes street. I would stay here again for sure :)

We stayed at this guest house for one night for the Edinburgh Festival, and could not have been more pleased with both it and the friendly, helpful and quietly efficient Morag. There was no fuss and we had our own key so could come and go as we please.The place is spotless and stylish and the continental breakfast with hot... More

This small guest house is in a perfect place for walking all over Edinburgh! Just a couple of blocks from Princes St Gardens and all the delights of Edinburgh city center! We stayed for 5 nights in May and thought that Morag was perfect! She was always helpful and kind and went out of her way to assure that everything... More

My son and I spent 3 nights at the guest house. Morag was so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much and it was so close to all the Edinburgh attractions. The breakfast was very good and displayed very well. Yes it was a bit noisy with seagulls and traffic, but it would not deter us from returning.

We had a memorable two- night stay at the guest house. Its prime location, cleanliness and comfort- the cordial, considerate care of Morag- the ample breakfast, are all that impressed and endeared us,to the guest house. We would definitely recommend this place to any tourist to Edinburgh!

We spent 3 nights in this very well located guest house in the heart of Edinburgh. Owners were welcoming and availables. Our room was cosy and our bed comfortable even if we were awoken by seagulls at night. We had to share our bathroom which was a little drawback. However, we recommand it for its peaceful environnement, kind owners, good... More

Had a great time in Edinburgh with a group of friends and this guest house was the ideal location for all the main attractions of the city. The owner, Morag went above and beyond to make sure we had all we wanted and really could not have done more. A big thank you to her.

Right in the middle of the New Town and ideally placed to explore the many pubs, restaurants and shops nearby, not to mention the historic places of interest. Nothing was too much trouble for Morag who really went above and beyond in making us feel very welcome, from arranging for our bag to be received early in the day and... More

Central location, only a short distace to everything in town. The owner was very helpful and friendly. We stayed in a triple shared bathroom. It was spacious and the bathroom is next to our room so there is no need to walk far at all. Although, our room is next to the road. It was quiet enough even though we're... More
