First impressions for some might be that this shabby chic guest house is more shabby than chic however once you get beyond your first impressions, the guest house is very comfortable. The beds were perfect, hot water plentiful with a fabulous shower and if you're at the rear of the guest house, it is very quiet and so a good... More

We stayed in this guest house recently. Despite the most well meaning and friendly host this place is tired and run down. The furniture is sparse and rudimentary and the bathroom needed updating. The breakfast was plentiful but the pastries were stale. This place could be lovely and for the price it needs to offer much more. I would not... More

Overall if you are looking for somewhere to stay in an expensive city like Edinburgh then this place will do for a base on a short break. It is ideally located just a short bus/taxi ride from the city centre in a nice part of town. The place is clean and rooms are massive and the host efficient. However if... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with 2 friends. The room was enormous only the bathroom was small compared to the room but there was everything. Eatable continental breakfast and 20/25 minutes walking from the Royal Mile so a reasonable distance. We paid 80£ for night for all the room that I think it's a quite good price. The only... More

I booked a room months before I was due to stay at this hotel, on arrival I was told they didn't have a room for me that night, so I stayed in an apartment they'd found instead. Allbeit, they took me to the apartment and brought me back to the hotel, but for the inconvenience I was only discounted the... More

Good points: - Cheap. - Relatively close to city centre. Bad points: - Room was advertised as having a private bathroom but did not specify that this would be a separate bathroom on a different floor to the room. Would not have booked had this been made clear. - Breakfast was the worst we had on our week's trip to... More

Hi, I booked this place for 2 Nights for my family (Triple Room -3 Bed 3 adults). Was a bit sceptical about it first as it was my first trip to Edinburgh but was pleasantly surprised with the facility and the location of this place. Owner is courteous and gives a sense of warmth and affection which a family member... More

When we booked we received an email that the price would be doubled because of the 6 nations rugby game Scotland-Ireland. On arrival they didn't even know there was a game on and many rooms were empty. The, more expensive, extension at the back is newly built. You can hear every movement of the neighbours; you might even hear them... More
