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 :)

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!
