No sign of the promised slippers or garden view. Boutique feel of hotel left a lot to be desired. We got placed in the basement room with view out to front yard - this could have been pretty but had been left to go tatty - needs some whitewash, hanging baskets, etc. People in the street could easily look down...

This was 29th November 2014. In fairness it was 1500 on the day of arrival that we booked (through agoda) and arrived at 1730 for a last minute weekend away, however when we arrived there was nobody there to greet us and no answer on any of the contact numbers we were given. We waited for an hour before giving... More

I stayed here by myself in a single room for 2 nights for the very low price of £55 in total. I used to live in Edinburgh so knew it was in a great area. It was easy to find as there are many other B&B's on the same street. I checked in very late which was no problem. The... More

Over all the hotel needed a good clean and in need of a make over. The landlady didn't seem to be bothered with her guests, even when we pointed out the broken things in both rooms that we booked. The furniture was shabby, no tap in the bath, hot water was hit and miss in bathroom and a broken ceiling... More

Stayed here for one night. Went to have a bath when we arrived to find out that there was no tap for the hot water. Later I went to wash my hands in the sink and there was no hot water at all. Breakfast was good and the hotel (classed as botique) was really needing a good make over. The... More

Just got back from a weekend here & we had a lovely stay. It is in a good location, about a 15-20 minute walk from the centre, or a 10 min bus ride (bus stop is right outside the b&b). Bed was comfortable & room was clean. The owner was very friendly & the breakfast was really good! Only a... More

Did a late booking and got a good price for the room. Location is very close to town, only a 15min walk to city centre. Bed was ok for one night. Breakfast was really good, continental+cook breakfast.
