The first impressions of the building were not great, it was slightly unwelcoming. The owner of the B&B was lovely, very welcoming and accommodating. However the room was not as expected. It was very small and cramped, The pictures we had been shown were of other features of the house that were not in the guest rooms. The bed is... More

Lovely host who kept herself to herself. Room was small, but it was all we needed as we were out for most of the day and evening. The shower however was epic. Had tea and coffee facilities and breakfast if you wanted, but with an addional charge of £5. Took about 20 minutes to walk into the city, but there... More

Lovely little B & B within walking distance of Leith and City Centre, very clean and tidy. Owner was very pleasant and welcoming. Room was small but perfect for our one night stay, great shower equipped with everything we needed including luxury toiletries. There were a couple of wee down sides in that there were no extra pillows or blanket... More

First impressions were not great - the location and entrance was not welcoming at all. However things did not improve. The room was tiny and freezing. Dirty curtains and thin bedding. The owner was doing improvements which meant we also had no electricity. The hotel walls are paper thin so you therefore had no privacy whatsoever and we were woken... More

I've stayed 2 nights in this place with my sister. We are Thai in our early 30s and travelling a lot all over the world. We went to Edinburgh to attend a wedding ceremony so we just look for some reasonable place to sleep. I must say this place has impressed us with a great hospitality of the owner and... More

It is nice experience of living in this Cambridge House, Edinburgh. My room was on the second floor, the room was very clean and nice. The bathroom had a window upabove, so it was good-lighted and no bad smell at all. Plus, the shower was great. What's important, it is not expensive at all. With that price, it's totally worth...

This b+b is basic but was fine for us as we were only really in the room for sleeping. The room was small and very very hot, even with the radiator turned down and the window open. It was clean and tidy enough although there was a stain on the duvet covers. Had to pay extra for breakfast which we... More
