Had a really lovely weekend in Edinburgh. This hotel is perfect in every way and will definitely go back. Staff very helpful and the breakfast delicious. On the bus route and also very quiet which is important to us. It was part of my 60th birthday celebrations so wasn't disappointed.

This Victorian hotel was full of charm and had a friendly atmosphere. The hosts were really wonderful and helpful. We were upgraded to a luxurious 4-poster bedroom which we loved. The top floor bedroom of our son was small but charming. The drawing room was very cosy and peaceful. The breakfast was delicious. We had a nice dinner there too....

Excellent find in Edinburgh , great hosts and wonderful charming rooms! Breakfast was really good too, with plenty of choices.. Situated in a lovely quite place with ample parking and not too far away from Edinburgh centre. Hosts were informative about attractions and bus routes etc... They couldn't be more helpful.
