The room is more than adequate. The restaurant served excellent breakfast and very good dinners. The staff is attentive, not intrusive, and professional. They work well as a team. The restaurant manger was personable, informative. He enhanced our stay. We will stay there again when in Edinburgh.

This hotel is a wee gem! Rooms are fairly small but clean and comfy, the staff are so helpful even checked bus times for us and what time our gig in the Playhouse was likely to start. Our evening meal (which was included along with breakfast for £99) was delicious! The hotel is a 5 min walk from Arthur's Seat...

Was pleasantly surprised with our 5 night stay at Masson house, set in very quiet surroundings, located off the main road , over looked by the natural beauty of Arthur's seat. Friendly staff on hand to help, we asked for more coat hangers, which we promptly received . We stayed in a deluxe twin room ( which we recommend) with...

Clean but small rooms. Friendly staff and very good breakfast. About 30 min walk from the castle. Good choice for a bed and breakfast in Edinburgh, if you don't spend much time in your room! Parking free.

I was really surprised as I booked what I thought was a B&B in Edinburgh for one night and when I arrived I discovered it was part of Edinburgh University. The staff were excellent from the late check in receptionist who greeted me with such warmth to the breakfast staff and then finally the check out staff. I can not...

Great location for exploring Edinburgh. Royal Mile and Arthur's Seat in easy walking distance. Spotlessly clean. Excellent buffet breakfast with cooked options from menu. Lovely hot shower. Located in student accommodation campus and conference facility.

A lovely place to stay in Edinburgh, located on the outskirts of town very close to Arthur's Seat and set in lovely gardens. Rooms are basic but comfortable and clean with everything that you need. Staff are polite and welcoming. Bus stops right outside so not a problem getting to and from the centre of Edinburgh - would definitely return

I was lucky to book this place as the city was full for the rugby. It's situated on the university campus, behind the commonwealth pool, under Arthur's seat Booked two nights b&b for a very reasonable rate. On arrival at the campus ensure you get a car parking pass and there is ample parking. Warmly greeted by receptionist, the hotel...

This is a long review, but I stayed here recently for 2 weeks while visiting with staff at the University of Edinburgh, and during that time I discovered how convenient the location is, and how pleasant the staff are. Pros: Masson House is located very close to a back entrance from the Pollock Halls campus, so that you can get...

I had a good experience here, the staff were friendly and efficient and the rooms were clean, light and well equipped. They do a very good cooked breakfast and continental style buffet. An uber from princes street cost around £7 I think. The only real downside was that the room doors slam loudly so on the day I stayed I...
