My friend booked this guest house for us to stay at while we were in Edinburgh for a conference. The booking process went well. We arrived to find the room a tad tired and dated. Unfortunately the whole house smells of damp including the bedroom that we had. Of concern the bed room window was locked and we weren't give the key! So no fresh air in the house of bedroom- which explains the smell.....
The beds are covered with a thick sheet of plastic- which means that you sweat while sleeping and then wake up damp.....my friend did not sleep at all for two nights.
The en-suite bathroom was very nice and modern.
There was no breakfast the first morning, as the owners were out, but they had left a pastry for us. On the second morning I got up, waited and waited in the dining room but no one came, so we had to leave.
