Walk to the B+B hotel from Haymarket railway station took about ten minutes with our luggage in tow. Walk to the Waverley railway station took about half an hour with luggage, walking in leisurely pace. As others have noted, restaurants and shops are just in the neigbourhood but the road in front of the hotel is not busy with traffic.... More

A ten minute walk from Princes street. On arrival we were upgraded to a larger room for free by an extremely polite staff member. The room was spacious and modern. It overlooked the city so the views were great. Very quiet on a night but still close to pubs and restaurants. Breakfast was nice although not unbelievable. Would definitely stay... More

just a stones throw from the new town and the west end of princes street ..this old Georgian terraced building is deceptive as a hotel. You can spot it by the ornate wooden facade at street level. It's a beautiful building and inside it just feels rather posh. That's if you ignore the rather out of character modern desk at... More

Beautiful old building, tasteful décor and spacious well equipped rooms with stunning views. Staff were great, we were late for breakfast but they still accommodated us. Great location - only 10 mins walk from Haymarket and 10mins from George Street. A great little find in a quiet area. Will definitely be back.

Thank you so much for taking time to review - it is very much appreciated. Arriving to Edinburgh by train is recommended - both stations have great taxi service to help with luggage and once you are here, you can walk everywhere in the city. Our team are super knowledgable about eateries, attractions and shops so please ask our advice!... More
