I stayed at this beautiful hotel with my girl for 9 nights. Our room was at the ground floor and it was big, quiet and comfortable. I booked in advance and one week before I decided to spend some days visiting the Highlands. Maxx and Annette were too kind and arranged the new dates while letting us keep us big... More

The hotel is situated in a pleasant residential street, and has a very peaceful atmosphere. The decor is very tasteful, and there is a quiet garden to the rear where we were able to leave our bikes. We received a friendly welcome. Our room was not huge, but had a high ceiling which added to the feeling of space and... More

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights. Located in quiet resedential street within 2 mins of major bus route. We found room to be fairly spacious and clean. Breakfast was very good with friendly service. We found bed too soft, due for replacement mattress? We reported a fault in our bathroom on arrival. This was resolved by the owner... More

Sometimes when people are tired on arrival even simple things can weary on them, yes you did report a leak under the sink and I said to you that I will do my best to get it fixed but as it was the week-end I told you that it would be very difficult to get a Plumber quickly, I also... More

I stayed in a single ensuite bedroom, which I thought was great value for money. The room was a good size, and very comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic, a really great range, and you can taste that it has just be cooked for you. Excellent location, in easy walking distance of holyrood park and the city centre.

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

Dear Reviewer I am puzzled by your review, you said that you Booked us because you had read previous Guest's reviews of the Hotel, many Guests have commented about our Location being not City Center, the problem is, if we were in the City Center the prices per room would be a lot higher so all in all we believe...

Reading all the good reviews I was a little bit anxious that it will not live up to it.But it did. Had a nice welcoming at midnight when we arrived.
