          Excellent stay”

          Nice and cosy room. The room was cleaned every day and Break fast was great! The location is also good as it is near most of the tourist attractions. Thank you to Magic for the magical experience. We had a tiring journey and he helped us with the luggage up a flight of steps! We will stay here again if we ever go back to Edinburgh!

          super but stairs!”

          Super guesthouse, central location yet quiet (Wednesday night in early Dec). Our room (sleeps 4) was on top floor, with over 80 stairs from pavement level. No lift, as it is a listed building. Very comfortable, with lovely linen&towels. Breakfast was varied and ample with personal service by lovely staff. Highly recommended if you are happy with stairs.

          Okay if you don’t have a car”

          The hotel was nice but we had a car and had to get up and out of hotel by 8:30 am or have someone go pay parking attendant (who is not there after hours) for two hours. So while the hotel was nice, we felt rushed to get out. And it is near the castle but no view from the window. You need to stand in the middle of the street out front to see the castle. The building itself is very old, charming. Beds were comfortable and breakfast was very generous. Staff was very friendly.

          Friendly, helpful staff. Clean comfortable room. Good choice of breakfast. Intermittent wifi which the manager said was being fixed. I would recommend this guest house.

          Plenty of places to eat in close proximity. Quiet. A lot of stairs and no lift but staff are willing to help with luggage. Pleasant atmosphere.

          Great location, fantastic staff (thank you Magic!), and large rooms! The furnishings were a bit basic/slightly outdated, but not too bad, especially for the price!

          visiting Edinburgh Castle ”

          Visiting Edinburgh castle and surrounding areas, it was a good location for a base. Very close to the castle and tram links to the train station and airport. The hotel had no lifts so a little climb to the very top floor. The rooms had large beds, decent shower and was very clean. Tea making facilities were very well stocked with nice selection of short bread biscuits. The breakfast was first class. The staff were warm, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. If you fancy a good laugh, would strongly recommend visiting the Stand comedy club ( not for under 18’s ) just around the corner. Will hold about 100 people, if you want a seat / table must get there early.
