Lovely hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Unusual and quirky decor. Small but comfortable and clean room. Good attention to detail. Perfect location for exploring Edinburgh with all major attractions within walking distance. Excellent breakfast and dinner in Irish pub next door. Happy all around.

On a friend's recommendation, my daughter and I booked for an overnight stay at this hotel in Edinburgh. It was excellent - we were unexpectedly upgraded to a bigger room but even so, the location, cleanliness and friendliness would have got our vote.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
