Good location. Place needs an upgrade. Bathroom and toilet were not clean. Cups left for tea/ coffee in the room were not fresh. Surely, Management that runs this place should do some basic education in hospitality service standards for the price it charges ??? Will not recommend.

This guest house is located on a major artery with excellent bus service to the heart of Edinburgh. We reserved the room with three twin beds for two of us so we had some room to spread out. The en suite bathroom was tiny but adequate. Breakfast was fine. But the thing that is best is that with a direct...

Not expensive and with easy access walking to the city centre... if you do not matter walk 20 min. Breakfast is fine but they do not offer cooked breakfast. Room is clean and medium size. Good shower and toilet.

We found a complete service, a room with all we need, a park place (better to book) and not so far from the Mile, just twenty minutes walk straight ahead. Breakfast was good, not the british one, but at the end of our Scotland tour was enough!

We arrived early and were given access to our room even though it was well before check in time. Normally we are made to wait in other places. The stairs might be difficult for some people but I loved the classic feel of the place. Especially as the rooms felt modern and well kept. The shower room was a bit...

A nice little B&B not too far away from the Royal Mile ( 3/4 mile). Our room was on the top floor facing the main road so there was a certain amount of traffic noise but not excessive. The room was very modern and comfortable with ensuite bathroom. The breakfast was continental so no cooked food (except some nice boiled...

Room was clean and nice to stay in, enjoyable stay and kind owners. The location just 20 minutes from the centre of town was easy to access walking, by bus and by taxi. I left my coat at the guesthouse and they were great in getting it back to me by post

Very small car park, tiny rooms, ours was not en-suite, in need of a good clean and upgrade. Breakfast was cereals and toast! Expensive for what it is. Not good! The whole property is in need of modernisation
