The best part of the stay would be the freshly prepared breakfast, it was delicious. Despite booking.com clearly stating the room was ensuite, the private bathroom was a 6 kilometre journey, hardly what you want when recovering from a 7 gram class A come down. Other than this and the vertical drop between the two singles as a double bed,... More

Booked this B&B for two nights through the Scottish tourism website (mid November) The owners were kind enough to reduce the stay to 1 day after we changed our plans at the last minute. Under 2 miles to the city centre. Accommodation was on the 1st and 2nd floor. Comfortable beds. Good wireless connection with wifi boosters on each floor.... More

Extremely comfortable accommodation, large well furnished room in the front, in-room services and free in-room Wi-Fi. Excellent selection of breakfasts, cooked breakfast marvellous. We found the service and attention to detail of a very high standard and we could not have been made more welcome or comfortable. Access to Princes Street , the city centre, was a short walk and...

Our stay was excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff. Internet works very well, room size is as described. Everything was very clean. Breakfast was delicious and served in a very nice terrace. Enjoyed my stay very much and will probably repeat it in future visits to Edinburgh

Well situated, friendly, high quality interiors and bedding, with attention to detail, lovely breakfast in pleasant atrium. Good value. There was a little bit of noise from passing traffic but nothing disturbing. We spent two nights to visit the university - a short walk to the Science campus and then we caught a bus to the main campus but it... More

We desperately needed a weekend break and was originally going to stay in the centre, but not being a golf fanatic didn't realise Gleneagles was on at the weekend, so couldn't find anywhere, glad we couldn't really cos we found this place for the Sunday & Monday night. Absolutely lovely room, right at the front (no 'noisy traffic'!!) I'm quite... More

Our experience was great. The room was large and very comfortable. The Scottish breakfast was the best we'd had. The owners were so cooperative and helpful. It is close to the bus lines to the Royal Mail so didn't need to use our car at all.

To come on the second floor was an adventure, also to move in the bathroom. But in total this was a very fine hotel, We slept like in heaven (the room was very small but the bed was great), and the breakfast in the morning was really good. All this to a very reasonable price.
