We had read some good reviews on TripAdvisor, so we decided to try this b&b. It's relatively inexpensive and in a quiet neighborhood. But you have to take a bus or taxi to the tourist attractions. The room was small but clean and the food was decent, but the hosts Maxx & Annette should learn how to be more welcoming... More

Stayed here for three nights. The room was clean, beautifully decorated, very well equipped and comfortable. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and very good. The hotel was located in a quiet and peaceful neighbourhood and within easy reach of buses to Edinburgh centre (10 minutes), and local restaurants. The proprietor was very helpful and welcoming.

We spent 3 nights here on a short visit to Edinburgh and were very satisfied with the accommodation and the service. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and ready to help and advise on things like restaurants nearby and provided little extras like bottles of water for our return home. The breakfasts are excellent and although the coffee was... More

We arrived needing medical attention for my husband which was swiftly offered vià annette. She quickly rearranged her staff's work so that our room could be prepared for an early check-in. A medical centre was within a five minute walk and my husband was seen by a doctor who had done some of her general practitioner training in our home... More

Annette was extremely helpful a great resource for restaurant suggestions and different places... More
