Stayed here for 1 night last week, arrived later on into the evening, no hassles. Bed was a single, room was clean and tea and coffee were provided.Central location and easily a 10 to 15 minute walk to the main nightlife in Edinburgh, which i was happy about.

The guest house was good value for how cheap it was. Very very basic room and shower. The breakfast had a great variety with cereals, yoghurts, fry up, porridge, juice and tea/coffee available. It was very Scottish with tartan carpets, had swords on the wall and plaques about William Wallace everywhere. I would see it as a place to put... More

This was very good value for a single room with shared bathroom at £30 a night. I had no problems with maintenance issues, the bed was comfortable, tv worked well, and shower worked fine. The breakfast offered a reasonable choice of cereals and juices, and the full cooked menu was generous and tasty and included haggis, which I do enjoy... More

Had a nice one night stay in this b&b. There were 5 of us in the one room and we didnt find it too cramped. Everything was clean except the sink seemed to be leaking in the bathroom. Its very good value for money and in a good central location. We didnt get up for breakfast so I cannot review... More

Only one word: amazing! We enjoy the room and the Scottish breakfast. Room was cosy and welcoming. The hotel was close to centre so we walked all over. We were surprised compared with how much we paid. We recommend it to everyone.

Stayed here in September for one night. Was amazed to find a place in central Edinburgh which was relatively cheap but wasn't disappointed. The owners were a lovely friendly family, very helpful and put on a good breakfast. The room furnishings were not great, a little run down but for one night it didn't matter. A bonus was they also...

Convenient location, comfortable bed (double) and clean linens. The place is worn, but ok for a short, no-frills stay. Breakfast was lacking fresh fruit/veg, coffee was weak. "Vegetarian" full Scottish included an over-processed, greasy, previously frozen mushy fish cake, yuck. And the mushrooms seemed canned (from a tin) yet were sautéed in oil/margarine (at least the tomato was fresh). Breakfast... More

We booked a twin room for 2 nights. The lighting was dim & 1 bathroom light was not functioning. The room safe was not safe to use as it was not fixed & left on the floor so it could be carted away with our valuables! We used the safe as a table as there was no table for drinking... More

I stayed here in the triple room with a couple of friends for three nights to see the Fringe. We found it to be one of the most reasonably priced accommodations near the centre of Edinburgh and was fine for the price. The guesthouse was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very nice... More
