I have to agree with the reviews from 94Lisa and Triciaco - couldn't have put it better myself. In particular, the location is very good for access to the Grassmarket/Royal Mile side of town, although Princess St and the New Town are not that much further. There are also plenty of shops and eating establishment in the vicinity of the guest house, so after a long day walking, you don't need to go too far in the evening if you don't want - if you do, buses run past the front door.
The bedroom and en-suite were clean and tidy, with coffee/tea facilities, and the staff were particularly friendly and helpful, with good food and service at breakfast.
The only negative, and it's very slight, is that the dining room is not big enough for the number of guests - if you arrive for breakfast at the wrong time, you may have to wait for a table to become available.
We came for the rugby weekend, so prices were higher than normal, but still good value in comparison with other establishments checked.
All in all, a very good stay.
