The owner and the house were quite nice, but the rooms were not well isolated and the other guest were very noisy. The rooms were in need of some renovating as well. The house is located on one of the main streets, so it's not a problem to get public transport to the center of town.

Said at pillars for just a couple of days but could have stayed forever. The best welcome imaginable. Fabulous rooms and breakfasts to die for. Couldn't fault it. A must stay for a visit to Edinburgh.

Excellent room with comfortable beds, tea and coffee, safe and wifi access. Very warm welcome and friendly and helpful staff. Good choices at breakfast in a sociable setting. This accommodation is within walking distance of the city centre (25 mins roughly) also seems to be a good regular bus service

In an older row house in New Town. Offers free parking, nice room, comfortable bed, and great food. All the guests sit around a big dining room table in the kitchen for breakfast where the food is being prepared and the dishes washed. Very friendly, and approachable atmosphere. People with young families would be welcome here too. We came here...

Pros: Comfy beds (twin rooms available), spacious rooms, fridge and microwave in each room, nice staff, cleanliness Matter of taste: the kitchen as breakfast room. As described in previous reviews you sit together with other guests at one big table and you have to choose a time for breakfast prior the morning due to limited space. Afterwards, the kitchen smell...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pillars house was originally built and owned by Crawford which were offices and a spirit store in the late 18th century. Most of the building still has a lot of its character left as you can see as you walk in through the main entrance. The courtyard where our free parking is situated was traditionally used as the delivery entrance where the horse and carts brought the whiskey from the highlands to be blended. ... more   less
