This place is a hovel! How someone can rate this hotel as a five I have no idea! The place looks lovely in the photos but dont be fooled - it needs new carpets throughout, repainted and about 80% of the place needs new light fittings. We were in room 3 right at the top of the stairs - what... More

Small family run hotel. Not like a large chain hotel so didn't have things like a trouser press though had an iron. However the bedrooom was a large comfortable room (shower only though don't know if any of the rooms had baths). What makes this place special is that it is so very friendly - the staff are lovely.

It must be said, I don't go anywhere else but Edinburgh because I visit my daughter there whenever I can so I have no money to go anywhere else!

Stayed here for two nights, chose this hotel as I'd lived nearby in the past. Roon was nicely furnished and spacious. Made up as a double when we arrived and I'd requested a twin. This was quickly rectified with minimum fuss. The cooked breakfast was delicious and fresh. Cold breakfast buffet was limited but I thought this was fair given... More

When booking for 2 nights, it seemed to be fine....turned out to be OK. Noisy on a Saturday night with the bar directly below, luckily we were tired.
