          Lovely decor and a great attention to detail with all sorts of little touches that made our stay really enjoyable. Delicious traditional Scottish breakfasts: we especially enjoyed the smoked salmon with scrambled eggs! The owners love what they do and provide wonderful hospitality.

          I really felt like being at home. The people were friendly, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, and the breakfast really delicious. Moreover, the guesthouse is well located, close to the old town of Edinburgh. I highly recommend this place.
