It was lovely. The room was clean, the owner is very friendly, and every morning there was a nice breakfast. We enjoyed our stay and will come back.^^ The walk to the city center is quite a longish one but interesting and absolutely do-able.

We paid a relatively low rate and for that money we couldn't complain too much. However, the b & b needs a LOT of updating. The room was a reasonable size and although we had private locked bathroom and toilet, they were a walk down the corridor and we didn't like this, or find it convenient. They should really be...

My fiance and I stayed here in September 2011 and I have to say, the staff made it a very accommodating experience. It is a little far from the action of Edinburgh, but there is a bus stop directly in front of the house and only takes 5 minutes to get to the mile. Rooms were large and pretty well... More

Stayed with my father for a trip in Edinburgh. For the price, it's a great place to stay. The woman who ran it was friendly, the breakfast was decent, and the room was clean. It was a reasonable location, a short bus ride from city center or a good walk if the weather is nice. The woman who ran it... More
