Booked on line thought it was expensive but expected reasonable accommodation. Stinks, very untidy, the tiniest of bathrooms, really grotty. Didn,t realise there was a festival on, so of course inflated tariff. They mentioned carparking, had to park a long distance away at a 25 pound for 24hrs car park. I,m usually easy to please but boy this is the... More

The en suite was more like a porta loo caravan style and smelled like raw sewage even though we left the door shut with the fan on we could still smell the stench throughout the whole room. This meant we used the shared bathroom which didn't smell but did flood if you shower for longer than 2 minuets! The sink... More

Staff friendly and cheap. It's OK if your just looking to put your head down for a night and not looking for anything too fancy. Could be doing with being updated. When we arrived there was a note on the door to say call a number to check in or go to another guest house across the road. We were... More

Ok. Well this visit started off really bad but improved from there. First of all, we could not get into the Guesthouse as there was nobody there to meet us on arrival at 12.30pm. Tried calling the number posted on the door but got no answer. Tried again a little later and got through to Alan, who turned out to... More

It is very cheap, it is very central but it is very very very basic. We didn't get to meet any staff, but spoke to a pleasant chap who had sellotaped his number to the front door who gave us full instructions. The room was not clean by most standards but was not filthy either, and the beds were comfortable.... More

Nice stay. We just spent the night in the room, as we were in Edinburgh to explore the city. Good location, clean and close to the main attractions, just at walk distance. Good quality for the price. Recommended
