              MW Townhouse Edinburgh”

              Lovely spacious, recently refurbished, very clean rooms. Nice staff. 1.5k from centre of Edinburgh served by 3 regular buses.

              We had a really great stay. The house is lovely. Spotlessly clean in all areas. Freshly painted with new bathrooms. There was a perfectly good continental breakfast included but a full breakfast was also available - I think at an added cost. The house is 1.5k from Edinburgh and 3 regular buses go to town at a cost of 1.50 per trip or 3.50 for a day ticket. I would highly recommend this guest house. It's really like a small hotel. We went during the Ryder cup and therefore I think it was more expensive than usual. An excellent location and lovely place.

              A good place to stay, very quiet at night and a well converted old house in an interesting street. It was just the right area for us as we needed to be in Newington a couple of nights.

              The MW Townhouse B&B provides free parking which is not easy to find in Edinburgh. However, the carpet of my room on G/F is dirty. Curtains, table-wares and other details reflect the poor taste of the management.

              Staff politeness, location, Price

              A comfortable room nice bed and good ensuite bathroom, close to town centre and the Owners were very polite and helpfull, breakfast was a simple no frills but as most others didnt offer was worth it, only thing i could mention was tv was small and probably to high on wall bed level would be easier and better unless larger so for me thats the only critism i would stay there again and a 4 star at the price was well worth it. Even to the last day it was nice as the owners genuinly left the impression they were interested in your stay and how it went..

              Ok for one night, not great for a weekend away”

              If you like hard beds and a long walk to the city centre this is the place for you. The staff were incredible, they were wonderful and attentive and the place itself was clean and warm. However, it's been a week since my stay and my back still isn't the same after sleeping on the rock hard beds. Our bathroom was on the other side of the corridor, which we wouldn't have minded but we were not told about beforehand. It's about a 50 minute walk to the centre of Edinburgh and 20 if you take the bus. We paid £70 a night and for a place with a weeks notice it's probably ok.. If the beds were nicer and my bathroom was in the same room, I'd think differently. There's some lovely student bars near by if that's what you're after, and it's relatively quiet, but overall not for me.

              Big room and spacey room”

              Stayed with a friend for four days in Edinburgh. The hotel isn't managed I.e. no one to met you at reception, we arrived and there was an envelope waiting for us after someone buzzed us in. We didn't mind because the instructions were easy to follow. The room was big and spacious but a bit cold. On the other side of the block there were plenty of restaurants to eat at. There are a lot of buses that go right outside of the hotel.

              We had 2 rooms (2 separate times) and both were excellent. The staff were great, very kind and helpful and the value is excellent.

              Really enjoyed this place, the rooms are top quality and the staff is great. The value is also very good and the location is 20 min walk of the city center and there are plenty of buses that get to wherever you need in 5-10 minutes.

              Very spacious rooms, 20 seconds walk to the nearest bus station. They do have a car parking as well, it is just a place to sleep, no facilities except for a small restaurant (very limited working hrs), express check in and out.

              Got upgraded to a bigger room - single room no facilities is not for me - my fault when booking ?? Owner was very generous with no additional costs for upgrade Room was clean, comfortable bit noisey but it is on the main road, handy for Town - Bus stop right outside Parking very limited. Served the purpose. Didn't have Breakfast - my choice

              The worst experience in my life”

              I am just warning to avoid this MW Townhouse because of the bad experience I received from this property. I reach the Edinburgh at the middle of the cold night and nobody is in this property ringing the bell and continuous call for more than fifteen minutes someone responded my phone call and he is not aware of my reservation I made 48 hours earlier. He is asking several questions and he said he needs to check for the reservation before attending my call. This took another half hour and finally I was able to enter to property after waiting in the freezing cold for more than 2 hours. and after checking in the guy left and there is nobody for attending our issues and told us not to call him in the middle of the night. The heater at the room is not working when we informed it the guy said it will work what all we have to do is just switch on the heater, unfortunately, it does not work but he did not attend.

              Food was lovely! And so were the staff, town house is quite a walk from the main town and the taxis are expensive, also buses to town don’t go directly in so you still have to walk quite a bit. Room was very small and bathroom wasn’t in or next to room

              It was clean. Decor and bedroom furniture very basic. Doors banged when opened and closed so heard everyone come in and leave. No curtains just shutters which added to echo. Did have a good nights sleep as bed was reasonably comfortable.
