Stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of March and would recommend the hotel to anyone. Rooms were clean, spacious, comfortable and have everything you could need. Breakfast which was included was also great. The hotel itself is around a 5-10 minute bus ride from the centre of town with the bus stop being almost right outside the hotel,... More

Wonderful and recommended to anyone! There is such a lovely family atmosphere the minute you walk in and you are made to feel so welcome. Such good value for money and the breakfast is amazing! My daughter and I couldn't choose there was so many options! We will definitely go back.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights before Chtistmas. We booked online and got a really good offer. I traveled with my husband 9 month old. When booking it didn't give a child option so we booked a twin room for 2 adults as they weren't any doubles available. We got a very warm welcome and they didn't even... More

I booked this hotel on the basis of earlier ratings on here and that it sounded like it had some character and of course the view of Arthur's Seat from rooms at the front! It was perfect for us! Thomas (a different owner from when we booked) was waiting for us on our arrival late on the Friday as unfortunately... More

We chose this hotel for a rugby weekend because other Edinburgh hotels had really bumped up their prices. It was quite difficult to get a parking space. The owner was pleasant and helpful. The room was OK - well stocked with tea / coffee +toiletries. Bed comfortable. Good variety for breakfast. 25 minute walk to Princes Street - which was... More

Thomas, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful. The location was quiet and only 10 mins from the city centre on the bus. The rooms were large, well furnished with comfortable beds. Great Breakfasts.

A great location around the corner to the Common Wealth Pool. Quiet and homely feel with great beds and hence a good night's sleep. Excellent breakfast menu catering for all tastes but nothing before eight at the weekend. Will provide a 'packed' breakfast if requested. Very helpful owner. A short convenient bus trip to the city centre, a number could... More

Lovely place. In a quiet location yet not too far from the center. Buses are regular or walk it in 25 mins. If you catch the bus its the stop after the commonwealth pool. Views to Arthur's Seat. Rooms are clean, big nice and warm. Great bathroom and breakfast. The owners and all staff are nice and very helpful. Thomas... More
