Booked this "hotel" in desperation over the last weekend, 4th February - 5th February, whilst the Scotland -v- Ireland Rugby was on in Edinburgh, for a friend's 30th birthday. Four of us in one room. The room was right at the top of the house. Cramped. Cracked bathroom sink. Dusty. Needed a good clean. No breakfast provided. Hated the animal...

I stayed here for 2 nights in the family room. Everything was clean, check in was easy, share bathroom was well kept, and fairly good location. The room was spacious and included Internet on the TV (great for netflix) the staff were friendly and made our stay comfortable. Would definitely reccommend.

We booked here last minute rather than driving home that day, and thought that for £99.00 without breakfast, it would be a fairly decent place. Oh, were we wrong. We had forgotten that The Fringe was on, hence the reason for the hiked up price compared to the £18.00/night advertised on the side of the house. We had a room...

I cant say much about the hotel as we didn't even get in. We put our arrival time on the website and arrived on time. We rang the bell for 15 minutes no answer. We then tried the number on booking .com which said this number is not in use. We looked through other windows and saw a tigers stuffed...

We got a bed room with an unconfortable bed. No breakfest included and that is strange for a B&B. Room are tiedied every day and the price of a stay is fairly cheap in comparison with the rest of Edinburgh.

My visit was pleasant -- if you're expecting a hotel, don't go here, but if you want a nice stay for cheap, I think this place was great. The rooms were clean and are cleaned everyday and the owners are very homey. Breakfast is not included, however.

We had the room with the microwave outside our door so it was very noisy. Floorboards were very creaky! There were endangered animal skins on the wall. Woken in the night by a loud male banging the doors and swearing at least twice. Rooms were relatively big but the to could have had a better ariel. Slightly drafty. Ensuite bathroom,...

The house is large and welcoming and the rooms really huge. The owner is a nice person and kind, really beautiful. Shame about the many drafts coming from windows and the stuffed animals that make the environment a little 'less hospitable. The breakfast is good, although not very abundant. Overall a good accommodation for a quiet but within walking distance...

We decided to stay there for three nights despite of some very bad reviews. And we weren't sorry. We stayed there first two nights of our cruising Scotland and our room (3 beds, en suite) was clean, we had enough space for our baggage. The breakfast was good, plenty, my husband is a vegetarian and he got fried eggs. There...
