Great Stay!”

Had a pleasant stay. Check-in was made easy and the room was clean when we arrived. However, if you want to leave your luggage before check-in or after check-out, it will cost 5 pounds per piece which is pretty expensive. Overall, still a great stay!

The lady is very kind. I do appreciate that she allowed early checkin because i was not feeling well. I love there bedding. Beds are big enough and cozy. The location is great! Within walking distance to a bunch of supermarkets, grocers' and restaurants. Also quite close to calton hill and easy to walk to the railway station and the center.

Good location and rooms but horrible check-out”

Hotel location is pretty good and walkable to city center (20mins). Many food and grocery options nearby. Room was cozy and comfortable with sufficient essentials. Parking is free along the road. Check-in was swift and the friendly elderly lady told us check-out was at 10am. We told her we will check out at 6-6.30am and asked if the reception would be opened. She said reception will be closed and to leave the room door unlocked with the keys in the keyhole in the door inside the room. Confirmed with her twice and she said to do so. Upon check-our at 6am, we did as instructed. When we arrived the ground floor, a young lady came out of reception and asked for the keys. We told her it was in the room. And she started lecturing us on how a reception works. Informed her that we were instructed by the other lady to do so but out of kindness, my partner went back up to the 2nd floor to retrieve the keys for her. However, when she found out the room was not locked, she became nasty about how a guest house works. When we were walking out the door, she started grumbling in her language and threw a small fit. Totally unprofessional and rude.

This guest house was clean and welcoming but it was a bit far from the royal mile, and you need the app or correct change to catch the bus. Also we stayed in room 1 and you can hear all of the noises from people in the kitchen, coming down stairs and other bathrooms. I would not stay here again.

Disappointed ”

Booked a 4* accommodation at 4, 7 Bernard Street, but this address came up as well and when we arrived at Bernard Street we rang and they directed us to Pilgrig Guest House. Staircase was lovely. Room was very average. Whilst lying in room at about 1030pm, thd mirror in the bathroom fell off the wall smashing to pieces taking the shelf with it. This was dangerous, but we weren't in there at the time. The room next door had a loud TV until about 2.30am so a very poor night's sleep. The breakfast unfortunately again was very average, just sliced cheap thin bread for toast, no fresh bread, limited choice, beans and sausage. The breakfast room also had bags of ironing in the corner. The only positive was that they let us leave our bikes there for the day, but then wanted to charge us when we picked them up later in the day. Free parking is basically if you can find it on the street. The potential to be great, but unfortunately not at the moment. We won't be returning. Definitely not 4* and def not 8.1 rating as advertised.

Give it a miss”

Awful and very overpriced - give this a miss. Disgusting makeshift room, like a half converted attic that smelt badly of mould with old beds. No idea how they could sleep at night at that price-for-quality being charged, we certainly couldn’t due to the massive skylight over our heads covered in a bit of thin flimsy plastic like in a student house. After the room price gouging, then tried to charge extra to leave a couple of bags so we could explore the city. Glad we were there only to attempt a sleep for one night after travels and out at first opportunity.

Best place to stay in Edinburgh”

I'm from Malaysia, traveling with my little brother for university interview. This is the best place that I stayed during my entire trip in UK. Very cute and beautifully decorated house. The room is very cosy, warm and homely. It feels very much like home, more than a hotel. You can park in front of the guesthouse for free if you have a rented car. Just 5mins walk to the Main Street where there is a Starbucks, Sainsbury local there and there is a really nice cafe opposite the road called Word of Mouth cafe that serve really good breakfast and coffee. It is 10mins away from the bus stop where you can catch the bus to the city center which is not far away. I would definitely stay here again if I'm coming back to Edinburgh.
