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

Now, which is the greatest asset of this place? The quiet location a couple minutes walk from Princes Street? The charming and serviceminded young landlady Morag? The tidy and well maintained premises? Hard to choose... An excellent choice for a short visit to Edinburgh at a favourable price. Breakfast is included and fully adequate - most of what you need....

Morag was a very generous and welcoming host, knowledgeable on the locale and attentive beyond the call of duty. The room was large, well appointed and comfortable. The location in the centre of Edinburgh was perfect for our walking exploratory jaunts - close to museums, galleries, shops, good restaurants and pubs. Waverly train station is a short walk away, as... More

Stayed one night at the guest house and would definitely come back. Started out very well with the owner (I presume - didn't catch her name, unfortunately) lending me a pound for the parking meter so I could go and find a bank. Very kind! Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable, and the bathroom (en suite) in perfect... More

The guest house is in a cobbled lane between Queen and Prince Streets. My room was comfy, the bathroom spotless. The star of the whole operation is Morag, the hostess. She couldn't have been more kind and helpful and though my holiday was cut short it was the best one ever because of feeling so happy to be 'home' each... More

We recently stayed at this guesthouse. The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast offers a good choice and the service is excellent. The only downside of our stay was that, the street outside being made of cobblestones, it can be noisy if your room has windows on the street. Since the guesthouse is located in a very quiet... More
