“Not a Star Villa.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2007

We returned recently from travelling Scotland, spending our last two nights at the Star Villa Guest House in Edinburgh.On arrival we were given a friendly welcome by Doreen, owner, who took us upstairs to our room.Entering the room the view from the window was of a building site.We said we must be in the wrong room as when booking we had been told we had views of the Castle.Told to look to the right.The view of the Castle was still not obvious to us.The room looked stylish on the net, but in reality it was bland & small with no warmth or charactor to it.The ensuite had areas/corners that were dirty,The towels provided were hard & old.Breakfast was quite good with a choice of cereals, yoghurts, waffles & a full Scttish breakfast.We had booked the Star Villa due to description, location & photos on the net,We feel disappointed in our choice & would not return.
