“well worth a stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

we arrived early before our scheduled book in time and the staff were away from the property having staff training.
I telephoned to see if there was any chance we could leave our luggage and book in later.The owner said if we could hang on 10min he would be there.
he then allowed us in early and gave us the key to our room and advice about local transport etc.our room was excellent and so was the breakfast and the staff who served it.
the room was maintained daily.

Very dissapointed, they false advertise that breakfast is included, but once we arrived there, the manager told us in a very rude way that the breakfast was not included and we had to pay for it. The room is ok but the bed is incredibly uncomfortable. Location is really bad. There a lot more better options in Edinburgh than this one.

Room Tip: In low season dont book in advance, just go there and check the places, so you cant avoid un pleasan...

we stayed here overnight on a room - only deal. the room on the first floor was warn, spacious and very clean. bed was comfortable and although the decor was not to my taste I really liked the house itself whaich retains many original features. the information folder gave lots of suggestions for takeaways and places to eat although we jumped on a bus - bus stop is just across the road and went into the city centre for a meal. I will certainly stay here again.

Had an overnight stay in Ben Craig House and had a fab time was alate booking and got it through late rooms.com well worth the money we had paid for it, the House is walking distance into Edinburgh Princess Street, we arrived late afternoon an they let us stay on an extra hour the next morning with complimentary Teas/Coffees and muffins.
Room was clean and so was the bathroom.

Room Tip: Rooms at the top are more spacious.

We stayed here for two nights and thought it was great. We wanted something that was affordable, which did mean staying outside the city centre, but with a bus stop across the road and regular buses directly in to town, this didn't prevent us making the most of what Edinburgh had to offer. Our host was friendly and helpful, and off-street parking was provided for no charge. The room was clean and well-heated, with tea and coffee facilities provided.
