The breakfast was really tasty, the bed was really comfortable and the bathroom was clean and nice! I liked staying there and would stay again. The location is great! Easy access to the city centre. The only bad thing was the internet which didn't work well. I recommend!

Back home after a brilliant weekend in Edinburgh and we had a lovely stay here. Jeanette was very friendly and welcoming.
