    The service of Balmore Guest House is very good. The staffs are very friendly and helpful.

    They didn't clean the room properly. I still found some hairs in the bathroom when I first moved in.

    Room was very big for the 5 of us and was on ground floor. Nice big tv and sofa where to relax for a bit

    Toilet was extremely small, you really can't stay in there. Bed sheets and towel were not really clean. Hotel was very busy and we had to wait 20 minutes before getting a table to sit down

    The location was within easy walking distance of central Edinburgh.

    The hotel was nice and welcoming in the reception but the rooms were very basic and the whole place looked like it needed refurbishing and re-decorating. The doors were dirty, chairs had dirty seat covers and the shower did not drain properly. The breakfast was made with cheap ingredients and the servings not generous. The whole place looked like it was run on a shoe-string budget for a maximum profit. The hotel needs a little love, and attention to detail for improvement.

    Good bus connection (lines 10 and 27, but some others like 11 and 16 very close), city center 20 minutes walk Clean, their breakfast room in winter garden lovely

    Edinburgh in August is expensive, so was Balmore. Breakfast time pretty short

    Staff was very nice, helpful. Breakfast organised very smart way

    Bus drive necessary or a good 15-20 min. walk to the old town and main tourist attractions. Rooms and bathrooms just at standards. Breakfast room was very small but organised well

    Location was good for walking into city center or catching the bus. Breakfast was wonderful.

    Rooms were cramped and beds uncomfortable. Shower head and sink faucet dripped. Electrical outlets were difficult to get to. No knee room at commode so had to sit sideways.

    The location The cleanliness The friendliness and efficiency of the staff The breakfasts

    This is unavoidable bearing in mind the shape of the building, but the Wifi was patchy.

    Friendly staff, good location, enjoyable breakfast. Owner keen to ensure guests have a pleasant stay. Clean room, beds comfortable - (although single bed noisy/squeaky).

    Pricey for B&B, but we stayed during the festival. En-suite too small.

    It was a very central location with a ten minute walk to the castle so perfect for what we were doing. Good price for such a prime location.

    Bit basic in parts wifi didn't work in our room. An adjoining bedrooms bathroom extension could be heard loudly.

    Strong stable WiFi connection day and night.

    The location wasn't that central for festival venues.

    The overall comfort and location.

    No step-stool or little ladder for short people. I have a good stretch but I couldn't reach much of the closet. bathroom outlets or showers. I'm four feet, ten inches (circa 47 meters, 34) but I still like your place so much. Thank you. - Annie

    The location was near everything and the buses were close and easy to use. Get the day pass for the best deal. The breakfast was very good with excellent coffee.

    We were across the street. The room was in the attic. It was hot even with the one window open. The bathroom was minuscule.

    Great location, clean and well decorated room.

    Room was accommodating but compact on the second floor in an additional house across the road from the main hotel. Request a lower level room!

    The staff were friendly and the stay was really comfortable

    would be good if the light bulbs were checked as quite a few of ours didn't work in our room or our other parties, would still stay though but us ladies like a bit of light to do our hair and make-up:) Thankyou:)

    The guest house was well situated and offered clean comfortable accommodation. Very quiet although fully booked and was nice and restful on returning from a long day sightseeing. Lovely breakfast and staff.

    Stairs!!!! We were given a room up 3 flights of stairs but swapped with another member of our party in the annex for a lower floor room. The annex is in need of a nice stair carpet otherwise equally as nice as the main building.

    Staff was very helpful and kind. Our room was pleasing and clean, but set apart from main building. Breakfast was nice and the beds were comfortable. Many people walked in this area, and we felt safe even at night.

    Parking was a challenge. It was a bit difficult to check-in at 8:30pm since the main door was locked and we had to wait until someone heard the bell ringing.

    The breakfast was freshly made and the staff were friendly and the breakfast area was open and light. The hotel is located close to the center of the city and within walking distance, but one can easily catch the 27 bus which takes you right into town.

    I felt the staff that cleans the room and makes the bed could have done a better job. The floors were not swept and the base of the bedside lamp was very dusty. The bed was also not remade.
