“Do not trust the 4 Star rating - very poor and not worth the money!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Paid £91 for one night. 4 Star rating (both AA and VisitScotland) so thought it was a safe bet. How wrong. Advertised Wi-Fi in rooms - signal was too week in room 3 to be of any use. TV also had a poor signal, so half of the chanels didn't work. The bathroom was tired looking (though at least there was hot water). The real cruncher came with the noise from neighbouring rooms. Its not like people next door were talking loudly - you could actually hear them walking about the room! Walls must be paper thin. 4am when the neighbour started snoring really finished things off. I am not precious - but when you pay that kind of money at least a decent sleep without feeling like you are sharing it with your neighbours!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

A good small B&B, clean and tidy, and with all B&B compared to hotels, sometimes a bit worn around the edges e.g.the odd worn carpet and mold, but generally not disappointing. Recomended despite the honest review above. Watch rooms 2 & 3, smaller and not very instulated. We had a snorer next door all night !!! Can't comment on insulation of other rooms.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 2 & 3

Great location, free car parking and bus stop just outside to take you into city centre in about 10 mins (long due to tram works and diversions)
Very comfortable nice rooms and a good size, with a nice range of toiletries supplied.
Far better than some of the larger hotels I have stayed at in the city centre, and greater value for money.
Nice breakfast, and a wide and good choice available, cooked to order so be patient.
Highly recommended, and will be back.

Room Tip: maybe suggest a rear room we were at front and heavy traffic, but really did not notice it.

Stayed here for one night in Feb as a couple. Checked in quickly and the man behind the desk was so friendly, took our bags upstairs and was happy to help with directions and tips. Bus stop right outside takes you straight into town, or just a 10min walk. Room was big and very clean. Breakfast the next day was brilliant. Would definitely recommend and stay here again if I went back.

Thanks to Andy for his friendly welcome and his hospitality shown to us on our stay .We thought our room was very nice and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed a hearty breakfast cooked to perfection in a lovely breakfast room.We were fortunate to be able to leave our car at the Hotel whilst we caught the local bus into Edinburgh City to site-see. This was very much appreciated and we would highly recommend your hotel to any-one looking for accommodation in your city.Thanks again.
