A cosy and quiet B&B. The single room was adequate, nice high ceiling and big windows (with shutters). A small sink in the room. The shared bathroom for the two single rooms seemed newly renovated and was very convenient and clean. It had a tiled floor and walls and a shower with good water pressure and was located right across... More

The proprietor was friendly, and the breakfast was good. However, I did not like the room. I could feel the bed springs in the bed. The wallpaper is peeling and old. The bathroom is carpeted and there were drips of *something* on the carpet next to the toilet. Overall, the rooms need a facelift and new beds. There was one... More

The location is close to the main tourist attractions and nice restaurantes are all in walking distance. If necessary a bus station is right accross the street. The rooms are relatively big, the service is friendly, the breakfast not more than average, limited car park infront of the building. Nothing really to complain about but that for the price you...

This B&B is very good value, and very central. There are nice restaurants and bars nearby, and walking distance from the main tourist attractions. I stayed there while attending a conference at the Edinburgh Conference Centre, and it was a perfect location, only a few minutes walk. Ruth and Agus (owners) were very helpful and friendly and accommodating to my... More

Had a wonderful time staying at the Burns Guest House. Ruth and Agus were excellent hosts. They even made special breakfast accommodations for us so that we could make our early flight. The house is right on the busline. The neighborhood is safe to walk even during the evening. There are some local interesting pubs nearby. The room was clean.... More

“The rooms at the front of the house are a little noisy due to the road, but once you find the shutters, the noise is almost completely blocked out!! Although some rooms don't have an en suite shower, the bathroom is only shared with one other room and has an excellent powerful shower.”

“We had a double ensuite room at the top of the house. I got the impression that rooms on lower floors had shared bathrooms. Our room overlooked the back garden, so was quite quiet”
