Great stay in edinburgh”

Good place to stay. A bit far from city but quite easy to go either walking or taking a bus (1.60£) old shower with no presure that would be the only inconvenient. Breakfast is worth the 5£/day.

Lovely guest house”

Excellent breakfast with super big double room

wonderful stay for 2 nights. very impressed by the spread of breakfast and the personal service provided by the owner. he could remember exactly what you had ordered the day before and offer you the same thing the next day. the only drawback is the guest house has no elevator; as such, we have to carry our pushchair to the third floor.
