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

At the time I type this review, I still don't understand how we payed only 50 GBP for a night's stay, including breakfast, in this wonderful B&B. I'm just sorry that I didn't retain our host's name, a very polite and friendly lady. She gave us a warm welcome and led us to our room: an amazing room, yes, amazing... More

Stayed from 26th Feb 2014 for 3 nights. Was greeted by Morag the host on arrival. Found the place to be spotless. Excellent continental breakfast. Room was spotless as was the entire building. Host was very helpful and went beyond the call of duty. I cannot believe that I have found a place to stay so close to all amenities,... More

We booked here on the quality of reviews read. What a wonderful little gem of a place in the crown of Scotland. We were a little apprehensive of the shared bathroom before arriving but in actual fact this didn't pose a problem at all. Our room was lovely and although on the top floor it paid endless dividends with working... More

Really friendly owner. I stayed 1 night for a 2 day symposium at the Royal College of Physicians with a nice continental breakfast. Good location in the central of Edinburgh, within walking distance to Waverley station. Bedrooms well equipped and clean. Bathrooms basically have everything you need. A really satisfying stay overall.

My friend & I were in Edinburgh for the UKIPT (poker tournament) from the 14th to 18th of Jan 2014. We chose this hotel because it had good reviews on trip advisor & was 1 minute walk to the Assembly rooms where the tournament was being held. On arrival, we were greeted my an extremely friendly Morag (who reminded me... More

Simple B&B located in the centre of Ediburgh, near the castle. Warm welcome, nice staff and good room. Comfortable room, well-equiped and very clean. Bedding was ok. Bathroom clean with all you need (shampoo, soap, cream,...). Very good breakfast with a great choice of cold food. Excellent value for money. This B&B is a very good choice if you are... More

We only stayed here for one night but got a very warm welcome from Morag... its not very easy to park but she happily ran round the street trying to help us find a space (thanks for that).
