Had a lovely few days at this guest house. Being 8 months pregnant we were given room 4 with en suite which was a lovely spacious room and very convenient. Breakfast was yummy and huge although the black pudding could be fried to improve it. I'd highly recommend the pork sausage though! Also very conveniently located being just a 10... More

Stayed here for the Marathon. Nicely located for walking to the start areas(25-30mins), also several good restaurants within 30mins walking distance. We also found it easy to walk into Edinburgh centre from here. Danny and Jasmine are great hosts and serve a lovely breakfast. We had an en-suite room which was good value for money, you also get coffee/tea making... More

Stayed here with friends during a long weekend in Edinburgh. 2 twin rooms, both on the top floor with a shared toilet/bathroom. Only having 1 set of facilities between 4 people did mean there could be a wait for the toilet in a morning if someone was in the shower, and there are no other toilets that can be used... More

Danny and Jasmine were helpful and friendly. I stayed in one of the two rooms on the top floor sharing a bathroom. Which had its advantages: a decent sized (twin) room and a decent sized bathroom, both with lots of natural light, rather than the compromise of squeezing a shower into a cupboard. There was a small sink in the... More

I stayed here for two nights on my return to Edinburgh to see my football team play in the Scottish Cup Final. Accommodation was difficult to find because of the clash with the Edinburgh marathon but I am glad that I found this little gem. Immediately after booking, Danny had provided details by e-mail on the buses to catch from... More
