My partner and myself stayed in this family run guest house in April 2013 for a 4 night break. As soon as we arrived the welcome and service we received was exceptional. The room was a good size, and very clean. The bathroom was small but had everything you would require. The shower had some lovely blue mood lighting which was a nice touch. For breakfast you had the choice of cereal, yogurt or a traditional Scottish cooked breakfast. We opted for the cooked breakfast which was lovely. The guest house we found was not ideally located as it took a bus to get into Edinburgh centre however the bus stop was directly outside the guest house and the fares are cheap enough, especially if you opt for a day ticket. The guest house offered free offf road parking which is ideal as it is situated on a main road. There is a sainsburys within walking distance which we found very useful as there were no pubs/restaurants near by for an evening meal. The owners of the guest house couldn't have been more helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them, they were even kind enough to lend us an umbrella for the day as it was pouring with rain, we found this to be a nice touch! We would be more than happy to stay here again and have already recommended to friends.

Both myself and my new wife cannot fault this guesthouse, clean and very well kept. The owners, Ada and Louis, were brilliantly helpful and extremely courteous. Whilst you are here, take the 10 minute walk up to Aaron Lodge and eat in the Conservatory Restaurant, you will be surprised.
Again, Ada and Louis, many thanks from Zoe and myself for everything you did.

I booked 2 nights at this Guest House. Easily the best Guest House I've stayed in Edinburgh. Owners are very welcoming and ensured a pleasant stay. The guest house has obviously been recently modernised. Breakfast was freshly cooked. WiFi connections in other guest houses are not very good because of thick walls. However in this one the owner bought a WiFi booster which did the trick, as signal strength is excellent Its this attention to detail which counts because there are so many in the Edinburgh area. Highly recommended.

The rooms were above average, spacious, very clean with good furniture and furnishing. The toilets were spacious and very clean as well. We did not have any meals here so cant comment on that, we opted not to have breakfast included in our room fare.

Very nice guesthouse, very well decorated and clean rooms. Good cooked breakfast in the morning. The host and hostess were particularly kind and helpful, printing a boarding pass for my partner and even bringing a forgotten item to the nearby hospital for us.
