    Half an hour in the cold”

    I arrived at 8:30pm to check in (after telling them that I would arrive between 8:00-9:00pm, when I made the booking a few days before). The front door was locked and I rand the doorbell about five times with no answer. Another guest arrived and we both stood outside in the cold for about a half an hour, ringing them with no response over the phone and the doorbell. Even after they picked up the phone, it took her another 5 mins to come to the door. The other guest stuck outside with me was also annoyed because there is no parking directly on the property for the guests. It was down the street. Another thing was that I asked for a receipt to be sent to my email after I paid the hostess in cash and she never sent me one.

    Very well run and comfortable sleep”

    Rhona made me and my partner feel very welcome straight away, and although they'd just returned from their own break the room was good to go when I arrived for an early check-in. It made a big difference to us that we were able to check-in super early because we didn't have to lug around our bags while we visited Edinburgh on the first day. The room was clean and had enough space for us. The en-suite was small but again very clean and had everything we needed. The shower was brilliant!! Plenty hot and plenty of pressure. The breakfast was so filling and everything was cooked really well - runny yolks and delicious french toast!

Breakfast was lovely with a great range of options. And most of all Rhona was so helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend!

    Nice guest house in convenient location”

    This is very much a traditional guest house in a good location for the centre of Edinburgh. There is private parking but only 2 spaces, however it is possible to park free in nearby streets. It is also on bus routes. Good breakfast and friendly staff. Only small criticism is that room was small but fine for one or 2 nights

Facilities were brilliant: lovely room, comfortable bed, clean, great bathroom and big shower. Breakfast was cooked fresh and there was a big selection to choose from including french toast, omlettes, salmon, croissonts and more! Can't fault it at all: book with confidence.
