The room was basic and breakfast was only served for an hour and the lady running it seemed very stressed. Family room was quite cramped and the bathroom was verging on poor. Not worth the amount paid.

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.

Very practical location, clean, friendly staff. Free wifi and spacious rooms. Early check in as our flight was in the morning the owners were very accommodating. We left a scarf behind and the owner very kindly posted same over to Ireland!!

Lovely place with lovely welcome and very pleasant to stay in. This wee B&B rescued us from staying in the Counan Guest House!! What a difference! Beautiful gardens and room was huge and had everything we needed, even a telly. Bright and clean and modern ensuite as well. Breakfast was just lovely as well and was a perfect wee stay... More

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
