“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2011

We stayed here for a couple of nights on a recent tour of Scotland. It was excellent value with a perfect location for Edinburgh city centre. The rooms were spacious and clean, simple but perfectly adequate. The staff were friendly and helpful and we would certainly go back again. The only negative comment I would make is about the cooked breakfast. We paid £14 for this and found it inedible (but we are very particular about good food).

The hotel is a converted house just 5 minutes from the main shopping area of Princes Street. It is very conveniant for all sightseeing in Edinburgh.
We had a triple room on the top floor which was very spacious and clean. There is no lift but I am sure that they would put you on the ground floor if neccesary. The staff were very helpful and although we didnt have breakfast it smelled lovely. Would recommend this hotel.

Place is located very close to all amenities, just a short walking distance from Princess Margaret str. Had a good breakfast and always were greeted with a smile. The owner is very friendly. We would most definately would go again, and also have been recommending this hotel to friends.

It is in a great location as it is close to waverly station and the city centre.

However I was very dissapointed when I arrived. It is not a hotel but rather a poor quality, run-down B&B. When we first arrived there was nobody at reception but a note with a number which I was to ring for somebody to come and check us in. The door was also randomly open which meant anyone could walk into the building which I felt anxious about. While the staff are very friendly they were seldom at reception when we neded them. There was no phone both in my room or even at the reception which I could use. There was no safety deposit box or ironing board and we had trouble trying to get the tv to work. The bathroom smelled of a fried breakfast every morning which was very strange and unappealing. There was also a problem with using the code on the door which really needs to be fixed.

Travelled with my partner and his parents for a weekend to do some Christmas shopping. The owner called me beforehand to say they owned a house next door to the B&B and that they had upgraded us to stay in that so we had it to oursevles! It was fantastic, the rooms were huge and we had much more space that we would have in a hotel. The owners were friendly and helpful and did a great fry up in the morning! Only thing is to watch out for parking as I think its double yellows outside, but there are places within walking distance.
