We arrived after a long drive to be met by Ian who carried bags up to our room. Friendly and informative we were given maps, timetables and discount cards to make our stay in Edinburgh as enjoyable and trouble free as possible. I arrived not feeling too well and the staff made me feel that I was looked after and... More

Our host Dave is very friendly & helpful with tourist information. Bus to Castle is right outside £4 for all day. We did the city bus tour... More

Our room was a twin in the attic. On first entering there was a very strong smell of fusstiness / damp. We opened the windows... More

We are pleased you had a lovely stay at A-Haven. Yes, our beds are some of the most comfortable and expensive beds money can buy. Our food comes from only the best supplier in Edinburgh so I'm surprised those two things are high on your likes. It's a bit strange to hear about a musty smell in your room. There... More

A nice little gem of a b&b/hotel. Firstly excellent customer service always happy to help & give advice. Free secure parking which is a bonus for Edinburgh as it can be expensive to park. I emailed before I came to ask if I could drop car off midday & come back later to check in which wasn't a problem, then... More

They couldn't do enough for us and anything we ask was never an issue. The rooms was very cozy and homely and bed extremely comfy. The breakfast was lovely and plenty on... More

A perfect B&B, spacious clean, amazing fresh breakfast! What makes it more special.... all the staff is sweet, hospitable & genuinely caring.
