“Almost ruined my vacation!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2003

Accomodations are good but the proprietor (though to be fair, only the husband and not the wife) is incredibly rude and inhospitable. We had to terminate our stay there due to his abominably ornery manner and upon request of a receipt of our payment for the one night we did stay refused to procure one; we actually had to report him to the Scottish police! I would avoid this one at all costs. As I found out, the hard way unfortunately, there are other much better Guest Houses or B&B's in Edinburgh, at better prices and closer to the center of town.

Very friendly and relaxed, with good Scottish breakfasts (including a vegetarian option). Our en-suite double room was clean and cosy. Good value for money.
