Hi Lee, great to know you enjoyed your stay with us and sorry you missed breakfast. You'll have to come back for another rugby event and avoid the whisky this time :) We are 2.5 miles from the start of Princes Street and as you note, on a great bus link into the town. See you again. Iain and Dot

Our daughter had booked us in for 2 nights while we helped her to move house. The location is easy to find - directly opposite the Edinburgh Zoo - but the parking is limited.
