Me, my husband & three small children stayed here for 2 nights. The family room was lovely, large with en suite and very clean. The breakfast served was lovely and they went out of their way to cater for our small children. The couple who run the b&b were fantastic, so friendly and went out of their way to make... More

This house is well located close to downtown, but in a quiet location. Bus services connect to Royal Mile in least than 10 minutes. In addition, rooms are charming, clean and comfortable enough. Service is of good quality and employees are really nice and helpful for tourists. Breakfast could be heartier but is served in quantity. As you can see,... More

No hairdryer, extremely poor parking facilities. Host was 1/2 hour late for breakfast even though it was only served between 8 - 9 am. Very poor... More

The lady who answered the phone spoke very little English and couldn't work out the price for 4 nights, especially as I asked for it at the price I had seen on the internet and not what they... More

Really friendly staff, and although the sign and entrance filled us with a sense of dread, we were pleasantly surprised at a large, clean, en-suite room. No problems getting to the heart of the city, 25 min walk or 5 min bus journey (with buses every few minutes, bus stop right outside the bnb). Continental breakfast simple but adequate, with... More

The b&b is still a work in progress; the ensuite bathroom was new and it was obvious that some works have been going on. Still the window in the hall were half broken, the furniture a bit tatty, the carpet on the stairs quite precarious. There was nobody based at the b&b so if you don't phone them the exact... More

Arrived at this guest house to stay for 2 nights. Myself and two friend were visiting the Edinburgh Festival. There was a large skip at the front of the house. All the upstairs windows were open and it was quite obvious that it is being renovated. We were shown to a ground floor room that was not up to the... More
