When the person sleeping on the inside cannot get out of bed without crawling over the other one, you know the room is small. Tiny, actually. We had two different rooms, with a break in between, and both were just big enough for the bed, no side table, a very small upright cabinet, and the door to the (need I... More

Not a bad place. Really friendly staff. Rooms are a bit small with uncomfortable out dated beds. Walls are very thin. Overall, it wasn't bad for our one night stay. Beautiful location.

After booking this hotel many months ago (and paying ) as I was running the Edinburgh Marathon, I received a call ONE week before the marathon to tell me my room was not available and they were refunding my card! They had the cheek to list a number of hotels where I would get alternative accommodation but spent a fruitless... More

I found this hotel through Late Rooms.Com (although I didnt book through them as I wanted to look at the hotels own website prior to booking). I phoned up ahead of booking to ask a few questions as Im not a seasoned hotel user and Kevin answered all my questions in a friendly manner. So despite negative reviews I had... More

This hotel was a huge disappointment. The service was poor, the bathroom had not been cleaned , including the toilet. They tried to charge me 5 pounds to look after one medium sized suitcase for 3 hours after I had checked out. A rip off. The room was very very small with no chair, the only place to sit was... More

Trouble with rom booking, (me and my spouse placed in two single rooms/had to change rooms during stay). Still no refund or redused fee. No space, no place to unpack, and smallest bath-"room" we have seen. WC places practically in... More
