The best hotel to book because it’s in the centre of Edinburgh and you can visit tourist places close by the hotel. The staffs are amazing, inside and outside the hotel is so pretty and beautiful I would recommend anyone to go visit there 100%

I booked here prior to the current pandemic. The owners have absolutely refused to make any consideration and reduse to offer me my money back now that Edinburgh has gone into lockdown. I feel this is selfish and socially irresponsible. I have rebooked my flights and will stay elsewhere. All other tickets I purchased for my trip have been refunded (and thank you decent people in Scotland which value their tourists) so these people are just claiming all of the money I paid for and pretending that it is they who are out of pocket! People need to do as their government asks during this pandemic and we chose to take responsibility for our actions, cancelling our trip, yet this guesthouse is happy to reap benefits from those out of pocket for being socially responsible. Shame!

My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights there and it was simply amazing. The room looked nice, nothing special but it gave us this cozy feeling. The bed was super soft. The breakfast was extremely good and it started the day amazingly. The guest house is also very close to the city centre but it doesn't have the city noise which is perfect. We could get to the city centre with just 15 or 20 minute walk, never had to take a bus or a taxi. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I would really recommend this guest house, who are traveling with a budget, want great breakfast, be close to the city :)

We slept 2 nights at november 2019. It was nice although our room had the toilet outside and both were a bit cold. However the breakfast was incredible, tasty and varied. The owners were very hospitable.
