I wish I'd read the reviews before booking! I'll start with what I liked, and that was it was somewhere to get me out of the cold weather outside, and somewhere to charge my phone. Having a bus stop for route 25 right outside is most useful (bear in mind a single into Edinburgh city centre is £1.50 as of... More

Firstly, not the most welcoming people thy seem pretty weird. It's very deceptive from the outside. It's looks nice until you walk in. We booked a double room and ended up with 4 beds. The shower was pathetic, had to bodge it to get hot water but it would be easier to shower using the sinks tap. Untidy, old fashioned,... More

This was one of the poorest B&Bs I've been in. The room we had (no. 4) was half of an original room divided by a partition which didn't deaden sound at all. Very noisy - when people in the next room (no. 3) walked across the floor there was loud creaking and our bed went up and down. Room was... More

Stayed there two nights for leisure. Upon arrival I've been told about the 5% charge for debit/credit card payment. Room clean-ish but definitively in need of massive refurbishment: furnitures and carpet pretty worn, bathroom door didn't close and the handle was dangling (likewise the toilet paper holder and mirror's shelf). Stingy continental breakfast with processed cheese slices single packed (i.e.... More

Miserable, overpriced, and poor quality 'breakfast' and service. Towels were not changed daily, wifi was poor and additional charges for luggage store. Cannot be classed as a 'Hotel'. Would never recommend.

I stayed at the MHH during the Edinburgh festival and left somewhat disappointed with the general standard but particularly the service provided. During our 4 night stay, we were once provided with fresh towels (on the final day), and were surprised not to be charged for the privilege. Additional charges imposed for leaving luggage after checkout capped off the whole... More

The price may have been because of the festival occurring a few days after we visited but this hotel did not compare at all to the value we have received at other places we stayed. The room had a strange odor that smelled like gas. The floor in the bathroom was carpeted and moldy. The carpet in the room was... More
