We got a bed room with an unconfortable bed. No breakfest included and that is strange for a B&B. Room are tiedied every day and the price of a stay is fairly cheap in comparison with the rest of Edinburgh.

My visit was pleasant -- if you're expecting a hotel, don't go here, but if you want a nice stay for cheap, I think this place was great. The rooms were clean and are cleaned everyday and the owners are very homey. Breakfast is not included, however.

We had the room with the microwave outside our door so it was very noisy. Floorboards were very creaky! There were endangered animal skins on the wall. Woken in the night by a loud male banging the doors and swearing at least twice. Rooms were relatively big but the to could have had a better ariel. Slightly drafty. Ensuite bathroom,... More

The house is large and welcoming and the rooms really huge. The owner is a nice person and kind, really beautiful. Shame about the many drafts coming from windows and the stuffed animals that make the environment a little 'less hospitable. The breakfast is good, although not very abundant. Overall a good accommodation for a quiet but within walking distance... More

We decided to stay there for three nights despite of some very bad reviews. And we weren't sorry. We stayed there first two nights of our cruising Scotland and our room (3 beds, en suite) was clean, we had enough space for our baggage. The breakfast was good, plenty, my husband is a vegetarian and he got fried eggs. There... More

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE. No breakfast unless you pay extra (in a bed and breakfast guest house - really?) - and I was NOT informed when I paid! Bring your own Iron & Ironing Board - listed as available and they were 'broken'. Remember to unplug the TV before going to bed as instructed - be a kind... More

Like few other said, me and my partner should have really read all the reviews before we went there. I cant begin and have enough space here to mention Mr. and his partner (either the place owners or just some caretakers) are by far the world worst people I have met and dealt with. The room was dirty, horrible, not... More

We stayed at this B&B on 2 different nights. The first night in and the last night before flying out o Edinburgh. This family is a very nice family and very helpful also. We enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean, but the stairs were tough for my husband. Their son helped carry the luggage up to the rooms. Very nice... More

This was a great place to stay it was cheap and also very clean, the olde world ambience was just right for an old building like this. The owner was very knowledgeable and his humour fantastic. The other comments were nothing like described. The breakfast was as much as you like which suited my wife as she was pregnant. The... More
