Excellent find in Edinburgh , great hosts and wonderful charming rooms! Breakfast was really good too, with plenty of choices.. Situated in a lovely quite place with ample parking and not too far away from Edinburgh centre. Hosts were informative about attractions and bus routes etc... They couldn't be more helpful. A real Gem!

I've been to Edinburgh many times, but this was my first visit to this gem. Very friendly and welcoming. High standards in the bedroom, sitting room and breakfast room. Great service, even having a list of buses that pass the hotel going into Edinburgh central. Leave the car at the hotel and use the public transportation.

The sitting room has the fire lit at night which is lovely and they have an honesty bar there with a good selection of drinks both alcohol and soft. The staff are all very friendly and...

We decided to visit Edinburgh for a long weekend break to celebrate my wife's birthday in late January. We were accommodated in a building at the rear of the hotel, and had a very decent room with an enormous and equally comfortable bed. The complementary pale cream sherry was replenished every day which we thought was a nice touch, as...

Me and my boyfriend spent a fantastic week in this Hotel for the New Year.
