We stayed for 3 nights. We were cheerfully greeted on arrival and Collum (?) buggy lugged our bags up to our room. As this, like many B & Bs, is an older building there are a number of steps. The room was spacious and clean, the en-suite bathroom was fine but a bit small. The morning breakfasts were very good... More

Rob & Vicki run a nice guest house, They go out of their way to give quests the information they need to fully appreciate Edinburgh. The room that we had was good size with an ensuite shower (a little on the small side, but there wasn't room for anything bigger). The bed was comfortable & there was a nice comfy... More

We had a friendly welcome, the receptionist had good suggestions on where to eat. The room was 'tired', stains on the duvet, squeaky bed. We know it is a listed building, but things were just too old. The best thing about the guest house was the breakfast.

We stayed here on a 4 day trip to Edinburgh. In a brilliant location all tourist attractions a short walk away. Warm and friendly owners who make a great full Scottish breakfast. We had an enjoyable stay. If you are looking for somewhere for dinner there is also a brilliant Indian Street food place at the end of the road,... More

We needed a good place to stay for 2 nights and since last minute.com messed up my original booking I got put into this hotel as a last minute booking literally! But I was in for a surprise. First of all it was not all that expensive and the rooms were nice and spacious. The heating in the room is... More

We stayed here for 5 night, the staff are very friendly & informative about Edinburgh & the best way to get about. The breakfast was lovely & cooked fresh. Although our room was on the small side it was clean, tidy & comfortable, Other rooms are bigger. Would definitely stay here again the location is excellent.

Having just returned from 4 nights at the Valentine, there are both positive and negatives for this B&B. The first positive, I was able to have 4 nights with parking, we will return to parking later, and breakfast for less than £250, and having looked before we went, this was a good deal. Another positive, the staff could not be... More

Lovely people, very friendly and welcoming, breakfast was ok but nothing special. The room was basic and on first inspection seemed clean. Although on closer inspection dusty in the corners of the room, under the bed and on top of the four poster canopy. Bathroom was clean. Basic but fine for what we needed. Could use a bit of tlc...
