    It was a good place to stay ,a good allrounder.Handy for bus travel into princess street! A good average breakfast.

    Not much , although you could do much better for the price. You can find much better BnB s in edinburgh with more pizzaz for a cheaper price.i would recommend this hotel ,but not on the price.

    Staff was very friendly and very helpful. The rooms were clean and neat. Breakfast was amazing and we were always treated with kindness and respect. The location is good - a little bit out of the city center so it's not too crowded, but also close enough to drive in or take the bus to see all the sights. Really recommend this hotel!

    The Cleanliness of the hotel was excellent and the staff that I met were very helpful

    Vehicle Parking is limited. But there is not much that can be about that. English Breakfast is good. But, might be an idea to leave the Orange Juice in the eating area for clients to help themselves. Ohh and there were no Baked Beans :o).

    Closeness to the venue/purpose of our visit

    The owners/staff were just great, making one feel very welcome. It was a very inviting environment.

    The breakfast could have been a touch better but it was very good having porridge. Having a fixed time to eat can be a constraint but this weekend definitely wasn't a problem.

    Very nice staff. Excellent breakfast. Bus stop right next to the guest house (less than 15min from the center), close to shopping center (5min walking). Tea making facilites with milk and cookies was a big plus.

    Hair dryer would have been nice. Bed was a bit uncomfortable.

    Location and cleanliness.

    Accommodations very small. Only one area to place one suitcase...no place to sit except on the bed. Bed was EXTREMELY uncomfortable...woke up with a sore back every morning. Breakfast was good but you only get a 30 minute window for your breakfast. Couldn't order before 8:30 or after 9:00am. Set breakfast...no options.

    The room was clean and nicely furnished, bed was soft, bit too soft for my liking but I guess most people would think it luxurious. Lots of choice in the breakfast menu, fresh fruit, yoghurt, lots of cereals, usual toast and conserves, cooked breakfast etc. The cooked breakfast we had was beautifully cooked and presented, glad I had fruit and yoghurt before it though as the portion was fairly small, other than that it was excellent.
