We stayed for only two nights, and thank God for that! The room was damp and cold, the sheets were damp too, as were the towels, and they smelled of mold. The toilet didn't flush, and the water in the shower was barely a trickle, and barely warm. The breakfast was expensive, not worthy of the name English breakfast, and... More

We stayed for one night for my birthday as were were spending most of the day and night in the centre. We left booking a hotel too late so ended up booking MW guesthouse which I was very nervous about as I'd never stayed in a b n b before. When we arrived to check in and went to our... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, how this place got awarded 4* is a mystery! Placed on the corner of a main road and a cul de sac, the road is busy and noisy however its an easy bus ride in to the city centre. The rooms are drap and uninviting, the first room we were offered was at the back... More

Highly recommended. We were nervous about our booking at MW Townhouse because of the mixed reviews. After a three night stay we could not find one fault. The staff were friendly and really helpful; the rooms are spacious, modern and clean; and the location is perfect - only a bus ride to the city centre from the stop outside the... More

We paid 'Fringe' prices to stay at this Guesthouse and like others, I cannot quite see where 4* has come from. Maybe they are doing the minimum to achieve. When we arrived the host made it clear that there was a time slot of between 8-9am for breakfast and not to turn up at 8:45-9.. In other words we should... More

During the fringe time of year it can be very hard getting somewhere to stay in Edinburgh without spending a lot of money. The MW townhouse provided brilliant value for money firstly, because it was not overpriced. Secondly, it was a twenty minute walk from the centre of Edinburgh but a ten minute walk to the main fringe locations (Pleasance... More

I stayed at the townhouse for 3 nights on business. For a room to stay it just about makes the grade. As a place for a holiday I do think you would be disappointed. As a romantic break certainly not. The locations not great, being a 10 minute cab ride from town and on a busy road. It has no... More

Quite disappointed in Mw townhouse after having such good stays elsewhere in Scotland. It provides a bed an en suite and breakfast but not much else. The room is spacious but cold, and noisy (main road outside). The shutter for the window helps but there is no curtain/blind for bathroom. The bed is ok but cushions feel old and duvet... More

Location's nice, but loads of road noise & the rooms are tired and need to be upgraded. Shower's hot/cold indicators are the wrong way around and the mattresses are worn out. The breakfast lady was very friendly & there's a bus stop just outside.

We stayed in Spring 2013, whilst it is the coldest in years, these rooms are vast, and the heating isn't up to it. When we arrived we pressed the buzzer which gave us a Vodaphone announcement stating that there is no credit which is odd, so we had to call the owner which cost us a fortune when mobile roaming...
