This is the 1st negative review I have given on Trip Advisor as you can see if you select my profile I always give positive feedback.
THE BAD POINTS.
The room we had was that small that I would guesstimate it was no more than 9 feet square with a double bed squeezed in there.
The ensuite bathroom/toilet was under the stairs and reminded me of my mother and fathers caravan bathroom as it was that small and Im only 5'8" and it there was no room to turn when trying to shower, the sink was the smallest sink Ive ever seen.
There was absolutely no cupboard or drawers etc too put your clothes away or hang them up apart from a metal bar screwed to the wall at the end of the bed, which meant either leaning them in the bags or put them on the floor which meant trying not to walk over them when squeezing past the size of the bed.
We had room 1 which is on the ground floor next to the kitchen so you get woke up early every morning by the staff getting breakfast ready.
No full breakfast just a continental breakfast UNLESS you pre book your breakfast, but honestly who prebooks a breakfast.
THE GOOD POINTS.
Exceptionally nice staff, audrey who own the place was ever so helpful and friendly.
It was ok for a couple of nights whilst visiting for The Edinburgh Military Tattoo which by the way is an absolute must do, but any longer and you would struggle to put up with the lack of space. The owner told me that she and her husband owned the guest house next door which I would of thought would of made sense to knock them into one and extend the tiny rooms out a bit more.
The area around here is an up and coming area as you can clearly see the local council are pumping millions into regenerating the tourist area here along with the Queens Royal Yacht Britannia now permanently birthed not too far away at Ocean Terminal.
For us the rooms were simply way too small even for someone who is only 5' 8" tall himself.
