You can't fault Morag's service or friendliness at this very centrally located B&B - only small complaint was no cooked breakfast but the continental offer was very generous. I had a massive room with full bathroom but some of the others did look a bit cramped and had shared bathrooms. Would stay again - good value for the location (walkable... More

We stopped here for a short stay in Edinburgh, I wanted something central and it was easy to find and within 10 minutes walking of the centre of Edinburgh. There was a very warm pleasant welcome, and Morag was always helpful and friendly. I was very pleasantly surprised and would recommend it to any. We are hoping to return, and... More

I was so pleasantly surprised upon arriving to this little B&B tucked away down a narrow side street. We were warmly welcomed by the beautiful and chic owner, Morag. Our room was SO NICE!!! I loved the modern decor and the luxurious amenities (lovely scented soaps and lotions). The location is very central in Edinburgh and the room rate was... More

Arrived to a warm welcome and the carrying of my overpacked bags to the second floor - very gracious and kind. Morag offered to move me the next day to one floor lower if I wanted - she is a very accommodating host. The breakfast is lovely with many choices. She even offered to pack me a lunch as I... More

A friend and I stayed at Morag's lovely B&B for two nights and I wish we could've stayed longer! We arrived fairly early on a flight from Belfast, but having emailed ahead of time, Morag was ready for us, offering us both breakfast and letting us decompress for a bit before heading out to explore the city. The B&B is... More

I loved it! The hotel located at the center of the city on a peaceful street. I got a really nice room on a third floor. It was clean, well decorated with bright pillows and paintings. I had 2 very clean and soft towels (changed daily). I was able to program TV to wake me at 8am in the morning!... More

Just returned from a fantastic long weekend in Edinburgh with a few friends. We spent three nights here, and stayed in room 14. The beds were comfy (our twin room had a double and single bed), the linen and towels were clean and the room was perfectly equipped for what we needed. There was a hairdryer in the room, and...

Very conveniently located town house. Warm welcome from Morag and a very healthy breakfast. A bit of a climb to the second floor but well worth it. Yes some rooms have shared bathrooms so best to book ahead if you want your own!

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 :)
