Rooms are small, but clean, and have a great shower! The people running it are not very friendly or welcoming, and the place could do with a few air fresheners. We never bothered with the breakfast, so I can't really comment on it, but it did just look like cereal and toast, so I wouldn't pay extra for it. It... More

This is a nice bnb and you get what you pay for. We were greeted by a friendly woman who had no problem in giving us extra tea bags, milk and sugar. The rooms are small and simple with all amenities you may need. It was cleaned to a high standard and perfect for a short budget stay in Edinburgh.... More

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...
