It is very well located, just 20 minutes of straight walk to the Royal Mile. It is comfortable, but without any luxuries; it has parking place at the back, witch is very convenient if you are renting a car. The employees are very nice and helpful.

The staff here is awesome. Very friendly and helpful. The room downstairs was a bit dark and sometimes quite chilly, but they would always turn the heater on for my grandma. We could always use the breakfast room. Breakfast is ok but you shouldn't expect a lot of variations. The room was cleaned every day but sometimes I had the... More

Clean rooms. Close to the city. Private parking. Friendly staff. Possibility to have breakfast, but is not included in the price. Private bathroom. Nice restaurants in the neighborhood. Close to Arthur's seat.

Thrums is located within walking distance of the city on Minto Road and easily accessed. I had a sprained a kid but managed the walk easily. There are cafes and pubs within... More

We really enjoyed our stay there. We stayed on the main floor so didnt have tons of stairs to climb with our luggage, Edinbrugh is one of the best cities we've ever been to! This place has a great location on a main street and yet it was very quiet! Only negative thing was i found it on a "B&B"... More

Recently stayed as part of a city break. I really feel that I can't complain too much as the place is just so cheap but there are little things that would have made or stay far more conformable. For example the headboard was thick with dust, as was the mantle and with little scuff marks on the walls you really... More

I had read some of the bad reviews before booking so I was dreading the trip. However, when arriving I was met by a young friendly who showed me to my room and explained what was available.They have no Sky TV, but hey it's a holiday. The carpet was new and smelt so, the bathroom was adequate although the shower... More
