This hotel was a bit out of the city but had really excellent bus service (#44). We were in a double bed room at the top floor and found the room small but comfortable. We appreciated the coffee/tea making facilities in the room. Breakfast was adequate, we had to miss it one day and were given buns and apples to... More

I had the room next to the kitchen, as a result I could here plates clatter while I was trying to get to sleep. Also nobody bothered to make the bed or clean the room while I was out. The toaster does not work properly and they are stingy with the bacon. Shall not be using them ever again.

I hate to give only one star, but i was so disappointed when we arrived at drumorne that i just have to share this. the bed were aweful, the breakfast scarce and the guesthouse is located about a mile off the central quarter of edinburgh. the staff was anything but helpful and i guess you can find a better value...

Stayed here for 1 night, and would highly recommend. The host is very nice and welcoming, and as you would expect from any b&b, you really do feel at home. My room was bright and spacious, with plenty of room to store luggage, and the restroom was clean and well equipped. Came here on short notice and although the other... More

We have stayed 4nights in the hotel and can not find anything to complain about. The owner was really friendly and easygoing. Krystyna - the waitress / maid / receptionist - was also doing terrific job, always had a nice word for us. The hotel is not in the centre, that is rue, but easily accessable by bus and absolutely...

We stayed at Drumorne for 4 days, and found it a basic but comfortable base from which to explore Edinburgh. The B&B is 1 minute from a bus stop that takes you into the centre of town, which is about 10 minutes away. There are some small stores within about 5 minutes walk. Our room was large, with 3 beds...

I stayed here for a month, and I have to say it is a great place to stay. Very warm and friendly, while also giving you your own space. Abi is a great host and is a very genuine and sincere person and is a great source of local information. The rates are very reasonable and a bargain. I would... More

The host, Abby, and his assistant, Charlene, were very pleasant and accomodating. the room was small but very comfortable as was the bed. The breakfast was delicious. they went out of their way to make me feel welcome and comfortable. The guest house is about a 25 minute walk from downtown Edinburgh, a very pleasant walk I might add and... More

I stayed there with my mates when we visited Edinburgh for Hogmanay. The owners were fantastic! Really helpful and friendly! The room prices were unbeatable and the hotel was situated in a location very close to city centre. I would definitely recommend it. Even though it may have not the luxury of a five-stars hotel the warm and friendly atmosphere... More

The owner of this bed and breakfast is very helpful, and gives you a warm welcome. The rooms are small, but clean. It is basic , but comfortable. You do need to get a bus into the city, but the bus stop is just outside. The area is not noisy and we had a peaceful nights sleep, after hectic days... More
