It has been eight years since we last stayed. New owners have now taken over and I must say it did not disappoint. We had taken a couple of our friends with us for their first time in Edinburgh to see in the New Year. We were met on arrival by George who made us feel instantly most welcome. The...

We spent a short break in Edinburgh and could not have selected a better place to stay. The stylish rooms were clean and well equipped. The bed was exceptionally comfortable resulting in one of the best night sleeps we've had in a long time. The breakfast menu had an amazing selection which was cooked to perfection by the hostess, Kim....

Had a great stay at this stylish, comfortable Guest House. Would certainly stay there again if only for the fab breakfast! Very good service, nothing too much trouble for the staff. Great location being right on shops and restaurants etc.

Since our last stay in 2009, new owners have moved in, but the high standards have been maintained and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The room was clean and warm (Edinburgh in December makes you appreciate this!) and breakfast was splendid. I'm sure we will be back.

Just stayed for one night on a pre Christmas break, mainly to visit the Christmas markets - Ben Cruachan was like a home from home - rooms were very comfortable and the sherry is a lovely touch - breakfast was perfect - will definitely visit again
