My son and I stayed here for 3 nights during the Commonwealth Games. Excellent location for restaurants, coffee shops and tram/ trains. The owners were extremely helpful with directions and local knowledge. Clean accomodation, decent breakfast and polite and friendly staff.

The staff were friendly although the breakfast man could of been a little bit more accommodating. Everything basic was there and it was clean. Although the very annoying thing is that in order for the light of... More

Caravel is in a nice part of the city right on the edge of the "old city" and close to the tram stop (though up a good hill). We were greeted very warmly by the manager of the B & B. The rooms were spacious enough but no thoroughly cleaned (lost of dust on top of things). It was a... More

Booked 3 nights at £110 per night during the Fringe. This B&B is reasonably priced. On the plus side the room was large with a double and 2 single beds...for the 3 of us. Room and bathroom clean, and the outside road quiet.Only problem was the light only comes on once you shut the bathroom door...a real pain. The breakfast... More

This was the most reasonably priced property I could find when looking for somewhere to stay whilst watching the Games in Glasgow and even though it was in Edinburgh we found it more than suitable for our needs. It's only about a 10 minute walk from the train station and there are places to eat and rink withing 3 minutes... More

The location is not too far from the city center, it takes only 10 minutes by bus. Very good service. Nice and clean room. I and my family really love the interior design and decoration of this guesthouse.

The guest house was incredibly reasonably priced for such a central location. Stayed here for a weekend with some friends, the staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms, while not of a modern decor, we're spacious and very clean. There was a great range of breakfasts to choose from. I would definitely visit again.

Our room was clean and spacious. The wi-fi worked in our room and the breakfast which included a hot items was good. The host was friendly and helpful. The... More

Value for money in the heart of New Town, very nice staff, great breakfast. I just booked this place without really knowing anything about it and I couldn´t have made a better choice! I highly recommend this place!
