A comfortable guest house at very reasonable rate. A bit of a hike from the town centre, but it was on a regular bus route. We were made to feel very welcome and given lots of useful tips about Edinburgh. The breakfast was only toast and cereals, but only a 5 minute walk away was an excellent pub doing a...

Got this room very cheap so was expecting basics but it was lovely. A grand guest house with traditional decor. It was really warm throughout which was welcomed. There were fresh towels and toiletries as well as a kettle and a fridge and tea, coffee. We even got a 4 poster bed as advertised. Really impressed with this place! The...

The decor and setting were perfect from quaint old scottish paintings to the stag head over the fire place-everything has been put together wonderfully. The room was bright, big and comfy with a great view over the garden. Tommy was always on hand and nothing seemed too much trouble. Will be visiting again!

This place needs plenty of work: it struggles with cleanness (a lot), the rooms have not much of space, everything just falling apart. Nice location and friendly owner though. It has en suite rooms, although plumbers and builders were not very competent. Wifi is not available in rooms with exit from the back. On the other hand, now I know...

Had a lovely stay in a beautiful grand room which was clean. Tommy is a great guy and worth some time to get to know. Very relaxed atmosphere and I was helped greatly with whatever I needed. If you can book it last minute then do it because you will get a good price for a comfy stay! The room...

Wow where do I start? We booked via laterooms.com for a good price. I had requested a early check in but never heard back so assumed it had not been granted. Which was absolutely fine. We arrived at the time stated upon our booking info for check in, to be greeted by the owner who's first words were 'did you...

Me and my friend booked a twin room for our visit to the Fringe. The garden front garden is well maintained. The room was really poky and badly set out with cluttered decor. The room felt like it needed a deep clean. There was a lot of dust settled in the corners and radiator. Not sure what the owner is...
