The room was great - but no view. It was cleaned daily and comfortable. Staff and administration below average - they don't seem to communicate with eachother or the guests. Confusion on booking initially then on settlement bill. I use a credit card whenever I'm away for security. I'm never charged with a fee even on item of £20.00. I... More

We stayed here for three nights in two double rooms and one night in a family room during a two week tour of Scotland. Pros: Their location is great! The guesthouse is located in between two main roads: Prince and George St. Both are lined with great shops, restaurants etc. We were within blocks of excellent thai and pub grub.... More

The guesthouse is perfectly situated near the town centre and with amazing views over the castle. Our room was big and clean but there was a funky smell in there, maybe from the pipes or something. The breakfast was good with lots of options to choose from and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

Stayed with 3 friends in a family room. Was spacious and very comfortable, Room was very clean and we loved the 'space aged shower'! Facilities in room were great: kettle, tea, coffee , biscuits and humbugs! Breakfast was busy but staff coped well and were very polite and accommodating. Would recommend this guest house and would return.

Great facilities and a great location. Staff are friendly and helpful to a fault. Could not hope for a better service or a better place to stay in Edinburgh.. Just be prepared to enjoy the stairs....you get used to them quickly. Bathroom is great. Very clean, and the rooms are spacious. View of the street is great.

Other than the fact it has a few sets of stairs, this place was absolutely fantastic. And the staff will help with luggage if you can't manage the stairs yourself. Room was clean, tidy and comfortable. The bathroom was super cool with a space-age shower that we both loved! Breakfast was both continental or cooked, whichever you prefer and the... More

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
