Firstly the guest house looks nothing like the photo used to advertise it, we drove past it twice as the sign was partly covered with over grown trees and shrubs. On arrival for our 2 day stay the woman who opened the door to us was rude, we asked where the car park was but she left us standing the hallway until another member of staff came, who told us where the car park was and that we had to pay in full up front handed us our room key, told us we were on the first floor and we could come and go as we pleased. on entering the room it looked neglected and run down, (Nothing like the photos) the room was dusty the throw over on the double bed was stained. we went out and bought multi purpose wipes and cleaned the room and wardrobe shelves before unpacking. The carpet that was in the room was also fitted in the bathroom which had a slight smell of urine.
On the morning we were leaving the man who had taken our payment passed us in the hallway he could clearly see we were leaving as we had our case with us but he did not speak to us or ask how our stay was. I would describe this place more as a youth hostel than a guest house. We enjoyed our time in Edinburgh it is a beautiful city but I would not recommend this guest house.
