The Cherry Tree Villa is conveniently located: it is far enough from the city centre to avoid excessive noise but a 3 min. walk away from a major bus route where at least 6 lines will take you straight into the city centre in 5-10 minutes, depending on traffic. Our room was not huge, but absolutely pleasant, nicely decorated and with a large window making it a very bright room. Our bathroom was quite small, but also perfectly convenient. Most remarkable were the immaculate cleanliness of the facilities. The whole house in general is beautiful and absolutely clean.
The only little drawback was the fact that, although en-suite, our bathroom was separated from the room itself, i.e. we had to get out of the room, through the corridor to reach our bathroom (but this was only the case with our particular room). Although we did not find this to be a real problem, it might be slightly inconvenient if you need the toilet in the middle of the night. However, this was clearly specified by the owners when we booked the room (so that it did not come as a surprise), moreover the bathroom was clearly designated as "private" (so we never had to find someone else using it) and we still had a little sink within the room itself, sufficient to brush one's teeth etc...
Breakfast was delicious, cooked to your order by Denise, and Keith will take all the care and time necessary to advise you.
We also feel we need to give our impression regarding remarks made in previous posts about the noise policy and the behaviour of the owners: it is true that they take particular care in making sure all of their guests can enjoy a quite stay. You are therefore expected to avoid making excessive noise after a certain time, e.g. banging doors, watching TV at full volume, shouting through the corridor etc... However, we felt that what was expected from us was only the most basic rules of politeness, consideration and respect and we do not have any problem with that. Those planning to go to Edinburgh with 5-6 mates to have wild nights ending up at 4am with finishing the last bottle of whisky while playing poker in the room should definietely consider staying elsewhere. However, we MUST stress the fact at no point either Keith or Denise made us feel uncomfortable about this: on the contrary, they have been extremely friendly to us throughout our whole stay, from the moment we were welcomed at the front door until the goodbye hug we received. They even extended us a particular thanks one morning at breakfast because we were keeping our room tidy and clean (we consider this a normal thing). Although we have often stayed with friendly B&B owners, we haven't often experienced such warmth.
We really had a wonderful time at this B&B, with nothing to complain about, and the friendly hosts were certainly the best feature of all.
