A very nice guest house within a walking distance from Arthur's Chair and the older parts of Edinburgh. The 25 mins walk does not only reduce the room's price - it is indeed a joy in itself - as it is full with small restaurants, bars, cafes, 2nd-hand and antique stores as well as ethnic places. the rooms are beautiful...

I wish there was a way to rate the host, food and service separate from the comfort of the beds as they in of themselves were great and easily could have received 5 stars. However, we stayed in the twin bedded room on the ground floor and the beds were as hard as a rock. It made our 3 night... More

Would highly recommend. Very good value for money. Owner very accommodating with comfortable rooms and lovely breakfast. Approx 30 min walk along straight road into the town. Parking is just around the corner and easy to acquire a space.

Room and private bathroom were very clean. The room was small (as described), but fully equipped with a small wardrobe, kettle/tea/coffee, hair dryer, TV. Breakfast included in the price, very good variety. WiFi free of charge with good speed and coverage. Staff friendly. Location was convenient for me. The price was unbeatable for what is offered.

I went there for a short escape to Edinburgh and I was very happy with my room. Nice view, clean room, with TV and free WiFi. Mr. Smith is very friendly and helpful, and I felt very welcome. The big breakfast kept me going for the whole day :-) If there is one thing I would not rate excellent is... More

A great welcome from Neil. Very nice twin room with en-suite, beds very comfortable and clean, rooms cleaned every day. Towels nice and thick, breakfast lovely and plenty too, sadly I was not able to eat all mine. This guest house is well placed for the city and is served by frequent buses, the short bus ride (£1.50) takes you... More

Small room, but nice bathroom across the hallway. Easy to get to town centre by bus. Missed a living room/ common room to use at night. Quiet area and close to a small park. Friendly host with very nice, big dog.

Warm welcome received from Neil on arrival. Room was very clean with lovely thick fluffy towels. Very accommodating, breakfast was as ordered. Just a small thing attention to dud/missing light bulbs and perhaps the door of the en-suite need attention. Guest house is an approximate 20 minute leisurely walk into the city centre, or for a bargain price of £4... More
