Nice guest house located just off The Meadows, so very close to the old town. Fancy four poster beds and a huge traditional and rich breakfast is what makes you think this is the place to be. Staff is very welcoming and available.

Very central, bus service into town only 10mins, free Wi-Fi an absolute bonus. For the price you cannot complain, a few things that would have made our stay even better, bigger towels, the shower in room 33 needs sorting, every time you turned you switched it off!! Warm plates at breakfast time, a fantastic selection but went cold very quick...

We stayed three nights at the start of our holiday and three nights at the end of it in a lovely larger superior double ensuite room on the quiet garden side and enjoyed very much having a lot of space. Rob and Vicky were good hosts, supportive and either one of them or their friendly staff members served a nice...

Luckily we were with friends and were able to stay in their room for an hour or so. If we'd been on our own we'd have been stuck out in...

We stayed between 21st November and 24th November 2016. We stayed in the luxury double and it was a beautiful room. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. The guest house was easily in walking distance once you become familiar with the surrounding area. There everything you need in walking distance and a bus right outside...

I booked this hotel as it had the cheapest rate available and it stated that it was the closest guesthouse to the castle. However having a son who won't walk the length of himself (ha ha) we jumped on and off the bus, which is right outside the hotel. We stayed in Room 31 which was right on the top...

Recently enjoyed a three day mini break in Edinburgh to go to the theatre and had the pleasure of staying here for three nights. Lovely Guest house with fantastic staff who made us feel very welcome. It is very close to Princes Street or the Castle and the theatre was also only a 20min walk away. Local transport is easily...
