I cannot fault ravenous beastie. This is my 3rd time. It is in South Queensferry - which is not far from the airport and just by the forth/ forth road bridge. My flight got in very early, (8.30) and the owner kindly let me into the room early. I had my key by 9.20 and was able to have a litte nap before the day began. When i returned in the evening the room was toasty warm even though it was very cold outside. I asked about seeing the fireworks and she also emailed me giving details of an event locally.
The room was very good value, and RB is in a great location especially when travelling alone as south queensferry is very picturesque and a safe area. There are nice bars, cafes and shops around, There are great views of the bridge to be had once outside. I always stay at the back so i havent had views of the bridge and couldnt comment about that. If that is important to you you can get to pay 3 times more over the road at orocco pier ( a trendy bar/hotel) and frankly it just isnt worth it. Once outside you have views and nice walks a plenty . The breakfast over looks the cobbled street. I have never had a bad nights sleep at RB - i have never heard creaky floorboards or drunken guests wandering around at 3 in the morning because it just isnt that kind of place.
Access into edinburgh is by regular bus, 43, £3.oo return going about every 15 mins, and there is a night service N43. It is a great place to stay.
