Dave and Liz are fantastic hosts! Location: can catch a bus from right outside - 10min and your in town. Cheap taxi to town also. Room: Spacious, cosy, clean and the bed was very comfy. Breakfast: Superb, freshly made and presented. Definitely will not hesitate in staying here again. Thank you Dave and Liz :)

The location is superb, walking distance from the centre, or alternatively a cheap bus/taxi fare away. The room was big and had a double bed and a single bed.... More

Had the absolute pleasure of staying at this stunning b&b. Would recommend without hesitation. Fantastic central location and we were made to feel so welcome by the owners Liz and Dave. They made our stay so enjoyable and were on hand day or night if needed. They gave great advise on where to visit in Edinburgh and were so welcoming... More

The place is just horrible - it is located right on a street with heavy traffic so it is extremely noisy. Cheap plastic windows can't be closed so you feel like you are sleeping in the middle of the street. The house smells some insect poison. The wi-fi is sporadic. The interior of the room is cheap and trashy with... More
