Highly Recommended”

Everything here is excellent! I love how the hosts treat the guests. Breakfast is always superb. The room that we stayed in were very spacious and clean. The only setback is that it is quite far from the center of the city. Although it is quite near from Arthur's Seat. I'll sure wish I could stay again here.
