Furniture scruffy and cushions on bed need replacing shower cubicle tiny almost impossible to get a proper shower and I'm only 5ft3inch and a size10 breakfast was not the best quality undercooked bacon and sausage
- heater did not work - no heater in the bathroom - bad sound insulation
Nice well lit place at night made us feel safe.
A bit of a walk away from the city center and people were smoking in the halls.
location just a bus ride into town or you can walk 20 mins. lots of space to hang clothes. beautiful house. free whiskey/ sherry was a lovely touch
Beautiful hotel. Clean, tidy, friendly staff. Lovely breakfast. Decent location, walking distance to Castle, shops and pubs etc... Bus stop opposite...
Shower was always cold :(
Breakfast and accommodation
The doors were a little weak so I could hear loud from the outside.
The proprietor was very friendly, room warm, clean and comfortable. Breakfast portions generous.
Location - near bus stops with direct connections to Edinburgh City. Comfort of room and furniture. Excellent breakfast. Helpful staff in all respects.
The fact that the hotel does not serve evening meals.
Bedroom window stuck open so room was a bit cold despite secondary glazing.
Close to downtown with easy access to public transport. Off street parking.
Smell of cigarette smoke in the common rooms but thankfully, not in the room. Bathroom was very small but functional.
Easy commute into town. Plenty of buses, every two minutes. Get a day pass to allow you to move around the area.
Parking is on the forecourt and is a problem if full. Leave keys with owners, they will move cars around to let others out!!
Perfect place to stay. Staff were friendly and welcoming, room was comfortable, spotlessly clean and homely. The breakfast was the best in terms of quality and choice I have ever come across and I travel a lot. Would definitely recommend.
Very handy to buses. Off street parking. The 'breakfast lady' was great - her cooking was great and her service was even better.
Room was stuffy, the window did not open - had been recently painted so should have been checked and fixed. Bed was too hard.
The people work here are all very nice and helpful, helping for bus direction and moving suitcases. The breakfast has more fruits and tea selections than other hotels.
room is a bit too small
Excellent and quiet location, friendly staff, parking facilities and great breakfast. The room was big and comfortable for 2 adults.
Rooms no.1 and 2 on the ground level are next to the reception and breakfast area, so you need to expect some noise in the morning.
Very comfortable, very clean and quiet room, excellent fresh fruit and good variety and choice available for breakfast, good civilised breakfast times! Overall, very pleased with our stay. Would definitely return.
The extra £7.50 charge for a full cooked breakfast is too much since the free breakfast of 5 items is ample for most people. An extra £3/4 would be a good price.
Close to city centre / Universirty Halls. Superb home cooked breakfast and friendly staff. The hotel also provides a complimentary glass of finest malt upon arrival . Would defintely recommend and planning to stay again!
Smell of cigarette smoke
Whiskey/sherry were a nice touch
Bed was very uncomfortable, bedroom was noisy.the £50 add on for festival week is criminal as is the extra charge for additional items for breakfast.
A fairly basic guesthouse, but clean, comfortable, spacious room, and helpful, friendly staff. The location was excellent, fairly quiet, but just 10 minutes on a bus to the city centre.
Value for money
Room was a bit shabby, sink not in bathroom.
Excellent choice at breakfast. Great location, bus stops on door step or just 20 min walk into town. Friendly & informative staff. Off road parking. Would stay again if going to the City
Small shower cublicle & some noise from main road.
We stopped over two nights here whilst the fringe festival and the Edinburgh tattoo was taking place.. Room had a great view of Arthur's seat and plenty of character. Excellent breakfast.
Wide choice at breakfast and served by friendly lady. Decanter of whisky and sherry in bedroom was a lovely touch. Had been at Tattoo and was cold and wet so it was very welcome. Quite far out of town but excellent bus service at the door.
All was good
Quiet, clean, good location, helpful, great breakfast, good sized room, great views
No ventilation in the bathroom
