        Nice location opposite park, little outside centre of Edinburgh

        Very small rooms and bathrooms, could be little cleaner

        The room no. 7 stinks of paint! Waste of time and money in that building. avoid!

      • Family with children

        The owner of this guest house kindly upgrade us to family which is bigger than twin room.

        Bus stop on the same street with good connection to the city centre

        No hair dryer in room. Breakfast room was too small - had to wait one morning to get seats for breakfast.

        We got a ground floor room as requested. There was adequate street parking. Bus stops nearby. Across from a park. Plenty of tourist literature.

        The tea at breakfast was never fresh and was often lukewarm. No hooks in the shower room. Only semi-skimmed milk available.

        This would have to be the smallest room I have ever stayed in. There's nowhere to put your luggage except on the floor blocking access to the tiny wardrobe. It's a long way from the city centre so you need to take the bus to get there. The TV didn't work, radio reception is iffy but at least the wifi was OK.

        A quiet hotel and the staff were very pleasant

        Bus service to Edinburgh passed by the front door and it was only a ten minute ride to Edinburgh. Wi-Fi is available.

        When we arrived at the hotel the receptionist commented that two suitcases would be a tight fit in the double bedroom that had been allocated - she was right. Our room was very small with limitrd free floor space. The en-suite was tiny. We were advised that there were bigger rooms but unfortunately none were available during our stay. There was no telephone in the room. English was a problem and the staff appeared to rely on one particular staff member to clarify issues. You must put out a sign to reqest that your room be made up otherwise it isn;t - we learned the hard way.

        Very clean, in a quiet residential area, pleasant.I booked a single room but was upgraded to a twin for staying three nights so I had enough space. The busline 35 to and from the airport is close to this place so no need to use the express connection which runs from the centre of the city (if you're not in a hurry). You can keep the keys so no need to pass through reception every time you come or go.

        Bathroom may feel a bit small and cramped but it's ok. Quite far from the city centre but the bus connection is good. They serve a traditional Scottish breakfast, not a gourmet experience although it does fill you up.

        Friendly staff, clean room. Basic facilities, will book again next visit to Edinburgh

        Just someplace to lay our heads after a night out. Staff very friendly.

        Had a slight smell of chinese cooking. Stayed on top floor and no light kn when returning late at night, couldn't see the stairs.

        Value for money budget guest house ideal for a short stay. Close to bus .stop which takes you to city centre. Staff pleasant and helpful

        Bathrooms tiny and toilet under stairs, uncomfortable for taller people.

        This place is the pits! The 'double' room was single size with a double bed in it. It was impossible to open the wardrobe as the bed was in the way. The furniture was mismatched, old and stained. The time for breakfast was 8am - 9am. The owner started cooking it at 7am (our room overlooked the kitchen) and then it was kept warm until wanted, which resulted in a greasy plate of overcooked food. Our room was not cleaned for two days and I did receive a refund for this. The reception area was someone who hardly spoke English peeping out from behind a half closed door. Altogether a dreadful experience.

        The stuffs are very nice, the price is lovely.

        It was too cold in the room although the heating is on. Cold air came into the room from somewhere unknown, and I wasn't able to go into asleep because of the coldness.

        The staff were lovely. Very good value for money. Good location easy bus route and on foot access. Breakfast awesome value for money

        The bed sloped slightly and wardrobes not easy to access
