Breakfast was provided daily with a breakfast bar & also food cooked to order. We did have to use public transportation due to the location being 1 .7 miles from the city center. Make sure you have exact change for the bus.

My boyfriend and I stayed during the busy Fringe festival. This is a lovely family run B&B in a quiet area about 20 minutes walk from the city centre. The owners are very friendly, breakfast was brilliant, and the rooms very clean. We would definitely book again!

About 20-30 minutes walk to the old town respectively 10 minutes bus ride. The bus station is reachable by a 2 minutes walk. The house owner is very friendly and gave us a warm welcome. Many thanks for hospitality.

The room we had at Ard-na-said was amazing. Huge four poster bed with canopy and beautiful antique ceilings. We were in Edinburgh to see the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and this place was perfect. Very well located near convenient bus route. The bus took us to anything and everything we needed. The hosts, Olive & Jim, were very hospitable. This... More

Very comfortable guesthouse. Warm welcome received from hosts. Very clean. Excellent breakfast with good choice. It was a good 20-25 minute walk into the city centre but manageable. Would recommend a stay here.
