Located in a quiet neighbourhood not far from the town centre. We settled for this place as we wanted kitchen facilities. In their defence, I must say the breakfast was awesome with local delicacies thrown in, The hostess is quite sincere and works diligently to keep her guests happy. She also helped us with directions and bus numbers to the... More

We stayed for one night and while the overall experience was good (fab breakfast!), the hotel is certainly rough around the edges, with more attention needed to fixtures (the lights in our bathroom weren't properly attached, and the shower flooded the bathroom). The room didn't have the little bonuses that are advertised, like hair straighteners, sweets and bathrobes, which was... More

Didn't have particularly high hopes after reading some of the previous reviews. Arrived about one and was shown straight to our room by a really friendly lady who asked if we had any questions about Edinburgh or needed any advice. Room was clean - big bed, lovely deep bath and nice powerful shower and we didn't hear a sound through... More

Hi, I'm sorry this has come to this but I really reccomending that you do not stay at this hotel. Not because the stay was particular bad but because if anything goes wrong they are completely untrustworthy. They charged me twice for my room in SEPTEMBER and they have still not refunded the money. I've been in contact with them... More

we stayed one night and found the room clean and warm. Free parking on the street outside the hotel in a bonus in Edinburgh. Easy access to the city centre and lots of interesting pubs cafés and restaurants on leith walk. Breakfast was great . We will definitely be back.

Myself, parter, mum and dad stayed here for 1 night. We were going to the theatre and the fact we could check in at 2pm and it was only a mile away swayed us! We arrived and found our keys were in an envelop on a chair in an unlocked hall with a nice note from the owners. This wasn't... More
