Rooms are reasonable, Would be unfair to expect more for £50 a night on a Saturday so close to the city center. We were placed in the Gilmore after there was a mix up with our rooms at a sister property. There didn't seem to be anyone around when we arrived but we had been given access code prior to... More

This place is unbeleivable, dirty, dated and inadequate, 1 bathroom between 8 bedrooms, our room was a double, with a dirty sink in the corner which could have done with some bleach down it as it stunk to high heaven, there were plug extensions everywhere, cigarette burns on bedside tables, carpet had seen better days, when I got up in...

The location is fairly good, 5 minute walk to Fountain Park, 10 minute walk to Princes Street. I walked up to the door, knocked it, wrung the door bell and followed the instructions given but could not get in without phoning for the entry code. The woman on the phone was pretty arrogant and came off very rude. Upon entering... More

Very good service and friendly staff, extremely noisy at night as it is facing a busy road, very hot at night and rooms are very dark and in desperate need for refurbishment. Our room was nothing like the photos on the website.

We stayed at the Gilmore recently and found the guesthouse to be fairly decent overall. The room was adequate and comfortable, and the price was reasonable. It's in a good location, within walking distance of the main sights. However, the check in policy is unusual - if you are checking in after 4pm you need to call a number to... More

The location was ideal as I was in walking distance to the city centre and local shops. However, due to work beginning done in the breakfast roomI was unable to have a breakfast. Though was given options locally. Additionally, on the website it stated I could request a radio. When I asked I was informed that it was available. But... More

No breakfast options although there are breakfast menus with timetables in every room. When we asked for breakfast in the morning they said that they no offer it any more. Taxi to the airport was already booked the previous night, so no time to have breakfast in other place. Check in time only from 1:30pm to 4:30pm. They requested us... More

We found a good price for double room, so we got it. Our room was ok: comfortable bed, clean bathroom, we had an adaptor for our mobile phones and other facilities. The owner, an indian guy, was kind, as well. Unfortunately we couldn't have breakfast: the fridge was empty, the breakfast room was absolutely tiny and there were towels on... More
