“Clean, pleasant and a good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I was stranded in Edinburgh after missing my train, and was fortunate to be sent to Hanover House when our usual hotel had no vacancy. It was quiet, very clean and reasonably priced, and Jasmine's kindness made it a comfortable experience. Breakfast was good, and while the room was perhaps a bit small it had everything that I needed, including a heated towel rail to dry my damp socks. It's a short walk to the train station, even closer to the bus terminal, and less than 10 minutes to the Royal Mile. The bed was a little too firm for my preferences, but I still slept well. I would definitely stay here again.

We've spent the new year in edinburgh. We know that in these time of the year is very hard to book a place to stay,especially if you decide few days before the date. The price was a bit higher then we expected compared to the quality of the rooms(a bit old,with some cracks on the walls). Altough,it's very central and the breakfast is great.

This is a very welcoming place that gets the basics right. It is close to the city centre and Calton Hill. Although the room was small, it was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was very good and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

This place is the best. Jasmine cooks excellent breakfasts, the rooms are spacious and nice, and the location couldn't be better. Cafe Marlayne and Phuket Thai right close by are excellent food options. You're a five minute walk from the city center, and the accommodations couldn't be better. Highly recommended.

We Stayed here for the last weekend of the fringe and we couldnt fault it,the room was spotless and really pretty with a huge window and high ceilings. The breakfast was really nice and Jasmine is really helpful and makes you feel right at home. Would definitely recommend, our only problem was struggling with opening the huge door at night!:-D

We stayed for the second time at this B&B for the Fringe Festival during August. Felt very welcome and relaxed. Lovely breakfasts - just say what you want! Instructions and help on parking outside. Friendly and laid back, not too fussy, just clean and comfortable. We will be booking a third trip very soon. Jasmine is doing a great job.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem good to me.

Delicious breakfast served in an attractive, clean dining room. Jasmin is the ultimate hostess with the mostest. She was very helpful and accommodating. She went way above and beyond in making sure that we had what we needed -- it made all the difference in the world to us. The room was spotless. The location was within walking distance to everything. I can't say enough about the hospitality shown us by Jasmin and her family. We had a great holiday and a large part of that we owed to our stay at Hanover House.
