The hosts, Jimmy and Fiona, are friendly, helpful, efficient, and accommodating including the staff that work for them. Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable.... More

good quality but pricey over Hogmanay. It was a lovely room - exactly what we needed. it was a nice breakfast - hearty but I guess this was what what we were expecting! The bed was comfortable although a little small and bit too much furnture it was sufficient for us to enjoy Edinburgh

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely B&B. The double room (opposite to the road) was quiet, clean and very comfortable even if it was a bit small to put our luggage. There is a lot of choice for the breakfast : scottish breakfast, vegetarian breakfast, pancakes, or waffles. A free parking is in front of the house, which... More

A lovely house, beautifully decorated and furnished, immaculately clean. Nothing too much trouble for the friendly owners, Jimmy and Fiona. Although our room was very small, it was very comfortable and had everything to hand that you would need. The breakfasts were amazing; such a variety of choice, fresh ingredients, well cooked and presented. Conveniently positioned, with easy access to... More

Rooms were comfortable, Breakfast was very good. on a busy road but there was not too much noise. We were on a late flight so they arranged for someone to be there when we arrived to get us settled in, Were also on a late flight back so looked after our bags for us. Couldn't really ask for more.
