It turned out okay after a disconcerting beginning. There was no host on the premises when we arrived after a very long drive, but by chance we met a young woman on her way out who let us in, and we found our name on an envelope with the room key inside. The room was acceptable but shabby. TV not working, internet access down, and no off-street parking spaces available to us. Calls to owner went unanswered for a long time, and he was not at all friendly or helpful when we finally spoke to him. Even just a more gracious and hospitable attitude would have made a huge difference to us, but frankly, this man was brusque and seemed annoyed. On the positive side, there was a good hot shower, and the woman who served breakfast the next morning was pleasant, and at some point internet access was restored and we were able to access it if we went downstairs with our iPad to the dining room. It's a bit of a walk to main part of city, which was okay with us, no doubt less appealing for those who don't enjoy walking or public transit. All in all, the experience was disappointing and certainly not worth the price we paid. If you'd like a warm welcome in Edinburgh, you might do better elsewhere.
