Good location, nice breakfast and comfortable room
The radiator started doing funny loud sounds at 5.30 in the morning and when I went downstairs there was nobody I could talk to fix the problem. Also the heating was turned on by them, so it was up to them when and for how long you'll have it.
The bathroom was like a cupboard and i could not even bend over the sink to wash my face without the bathroom door opening. As a result of this the bathroom door would not stay shut whilst you were sitting on the toilet. The was no internet connection as stated and the water was cold when I went to shower. The bed was uncomfortable. We had to say in another annex across the rosd from the hotel which was not mentioned. When I complained to the owner he was most unhelpful. I would not recommend this hotel or stay there again
Very good breakfast, the size of the room and bed, the location
I ordered a taxi for the following early morning to the airport, which I was told would be done after breakfast as they were busy, only to go back early afternoon to confirm this and to find that it had not been booked. The person at the time did the booking herself, but it would have been very worrying if I had not checked earlier as I might have waited in vain and missed my flight. Other than that it was perfect for what I had paid.
Room is a bit small. With a slight smell.
comfortable close to city centre
cheap, free breakfast and not to far away from town
staff were rude, we were moved rooms because of supposed roofing. Roofing never took place another couple went into are old room . I don't appreciate being lied to.
Great location within walking distance of the old town, friendly staff, nice room, and excellent price. We will return.
Good sized rooms, clean and tidy. Staff welcoming and friendly. Choice of breakfast to set you up for the day. Would definitely go back again.
Would have helped to have guide on public transport availability nearby, where to eat etc.
Decent location 10 mins from Princes St. Comfy beds in a lovely old house. Best shower I've ever used in a hotel!!!
The attention to detail with the cleaning left a lot to be desired, and the shower had lots of mildew in the grout, however this didn't detract from our stay. The breakfast wasn't great, the food or plates were cold and the random 3 uncooked tomatoes were a strange addition. The amount of mushrooms you got really wasn't worth the effort! It was a shame that the breakfast let the b&b down
Nice clean room and good location.
Checkout is early at 10am, but I guess this is standard for most places.
Beds were comfortable, easy location to get too ,good value for money .staff were friendly , breakfast was adequate
Family room could have been slightly bigger, the shower room was tiny, very little privacy, shower was not very hot but fine for only one night there
Excellent value for money. Good warm, lovely decorated rooms, tasteful bathroom with great shower. Fantastic breakfast which was included in the price, great!! TV with good channels, good wardrobe space and also heating on most of the day. Good tea and coffee making facilities and seats at window. Fantastic value for money!!
3 different houses, so had to go across/up a few housesfor breakfast.. Which wasnt a problem for us but could be for others. Had suitcases but no one to help us up the stairs with them. Beds, bathroom and floor spotlessly clean however could pay more attention to other areas such as skirting boards and inside the wardrobe (repaint). Quite noisy at traffic at nights which wasn't much of a problem to my family, however if a light sleeper it could perhaps be for others.
Location for family get together in Toll Cross area could not be better - a very easy, very short pavemented walk. Accommodation, service & value for money overall outstanding.
Beds super comfy but one or two of the pillows in our enormous family room number 11 could have been a little softer but then that can be down to personal taste - speaking of which I would have loved to see more of the beautiful fireplace.
Good clean rooms well insulated. Double room comfy beds. Double room spacious. Nice breakfast
Felt staff were not too friendly, felt to be made rude for asking for extra breakfast (which was nice, but a little small). Check out times quite early (10:00am) on a Sunday Morning could be better if this was later. Quite a walk from city centre. My friends single room was very small and for £80 seemed a bit too pricey.
This place is reasonably priced for Edinburgh
But I have never been asked to hurry my breakfast so that other guests could use the table. The eating area sits only half the room capacity of the guest house.
The location within the city
Car parking for only 2 cars
Cheap, and close to amenities, good breakfast menu
Staff rude when arrived late at night, eventhough emailed them to say in advance we would be checking in late. could have been cleaner, room too small for 3 people. Breakfast finished by 9am, bit early would have hoped for it to be untill 10am at least.
The whole lot
I was travelling with my family and we were given a huge family room which was really nice and spacious! I'd definitely stay there again! Lovely warm rooms as well!
Our room had quite a small en suite and we got some road noise at night.
I was suprised when we arrived to be taken across the road from the main building to the annexe which frankly was unwelcoming, we were not taken up to our room, the ensuite was very tiny just enough room to open the door, the building reminded us of a block of student flats. One morning we were woken at 6am by other guests being extremely loud, this went on for 2hrs! The breakfast was very basic, greasy bacon and cold mushrooms. We will not be staying here again.
Very comfortable room and quiet environment. Had a very relaxing night!
The distance to the city centre. Those 30 minutewalks were a bit of a strain. Got lost in the first day.
Good value for money, friendly staff, comfortable room for a short stay.
staff were very kind and helpful and very smiley
Rooms were fantastic. Breakfast was great. Showers were awesome
