“Accommodation was not up to scratch”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2011

Room was very tiny with bed against wall. Bed light not working. No where to sit. Room was not serviced for our two night stay. Caretaker did not know about local attractions, or where to eat. The worst place we stayed at in our two month visit to the UK. Would not recommend. Good location and street parking.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2008

Our stay at Camerons Guest House for two nights during our recent trip to Scotland was very nice. There was on street parking available, and the bus stop to get downtown was located 50 feet away. The house faces a beautiful park area, and there were several restaurants within walking distance. Our hostess had a dog and a bird within the home who were quite sweet. We were also able to check in early in the day as our flight landed at 10 a.m....it was nice not having to lug our luggage and rental car around until typical checkin time of 4-6. We didn't use our rental car the entire time we were in Edinburgh - just wasn't needed. (we used it during the rest of our trip though).

  • Liked — Wonderful breakfast foods.
  • Disliked — Quality of room accomodations

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2007

Owner was not there upon arrival. Instruction on front door to find nearest phone and call for instructions to access B&B.
No one was inside, felt as though we were the only one staying there. Discover later during breakfast more than half the rooms were booked.
Our room was a family room for three. Our first impression after entering the room was that the room smell musty, old decor, uncomfortable beds, poor lighting, no place to unpack luggage and store away, old furniture, no place for toiletries, low on toilet paper, no tissues, only one bath towel per person, but provided fresh towels each day, light above sink did not work, ugly wall paper....need I say more?
Bathroom has good water pressure, but temperature is not hot enough. Bring your own soap. No place to put soap and shampoo in shower stall. Floor slant and squeaky. This place needs work.
Weak internet connection.
Met owner during breakfast. She apologized for not being there when we arrived. Good breakfast with plenty to eat. Owner also burned us a cd music we enjoyed listening to. Thanks for your kindness.
Street parking is difficult, but only a couple miles from Edinburgh Castle.

Stayed August 2007
