I am very surprised at the bad reviews on trip advisor as this is the second time we have stayed there and think it is lovely. My sister and brother-in-law from Australia stayed there for 10 days in July and also thought it was great. It is slightly old-fashioned in decor, but it was clean, the breakfast was fantastic, it is ideally located for getting into Edinburgh on local buses, and it is good value. It was one of the few B&B's in that area that did not insiste on a minimum 2 night stay at weekends over the summer period. We had the room with private bathroom, not en-suite, but for the reduction in price, it was well worth the slight inconvenience of having to go out into the hall to get to the private bathroom. Lis the owner was welcoming and chatty, and gave my 12 year old daughter the loan of a crutch as she had hurt her knee and was finding walking difficult. The most important aspect for me is that it was very quiet, so we all got a good night's sleep. I fully expect to stay there again next time we go up to Edinburgh. As Lis has pointed out in her replies to the bad reviews, if the problems had been pointed out to her at the time she could have tried to resolve them. Too many people lack the courage to say anything at the time and then have a good old moan after they get home.
