Rooms are ok but the location is very far from city centre which means the transit time or cost is similar to a good hotel near the city. Also the staff was rude and room was smelly. Thanks to our rigorous schedule, we didn't spend too much time here. Never coming back.

As you did not stay with us TripAdvisor have assured us they are looking into your review and will have this taken down. We find this truly disheartening that dishonest people try to sabotage small family businesses in this way.

Old converted mansion with lovely rooms, friendly staff and a great breakfast. 20 min walk to the royal mile and a quick jog to the park. The area itself also has a nice vibe. Also has parking which is a rarity in the city
