I booked this on the basis of it being the cheapest last minute 2 night deal I could find within a 2 mile radius of the Waverley station. The very reasonable rate and the vehement negative reviews I then read on here gave me pause for thought...
...but this was completely unfounded. The owner was lovely, a really nice guy who couldn't be more welcoming and helpful, despite my arriving near to midnight (thanks, Flybe). My single room was small but cosy, and most importantly, was spotlessly clean, warm, and had an ensuite bathroom with a really good powerful shower and plenty of hot water.
No, the decor isn't muted shades of ecru and grey, and it's not all modern or ironic. It's a beautiful old building, and it's got decor to match the building's vintage. If you want modern, go stay in a Travelodge. If you want a good, honest, clean and welcoming bed & breakfast in Edinburgh, this is the one. My 2 night stay was just fine, and I'll definitely use them again next time I am in town.
