Great location and hosts incredibly welcoming and helpful. An excellent place to stay when in Edinburgh. Room was lovely with a view of Arthur's seat. Breakfast was top notch. The property was very very clean and well looked after, pride in the appearance was clear to see.

I stayed here for a couple of nights in August and was very impressed. My single room wasn't ensuite but I had my own private bathroom, with key, just along the corridor. The bedroom was furnished simply, with single bed, small armchair, wardrobe and desk and wasn't huge but certainly spacious enough for a single traveller. The high ceilings made... More

Staff/owners are really kind and thoughtful. We felt very welcome. Breakfast is delicious and the room very comfortable. A very nice surprise for a special occasion also. It's warm, it's like a home away from home. Will be back someday for sure. Thank you!
