Location is fine (less then 10 min walking from Waverley Station). Friendly host. Good breakfast. Nice view from the windows. The room was warm thanks to the radiator.
The bathroom was really chilly (I didn't have to spend there much time though).
We had an excellent stay. A 5 minute walk from the train station to a well situated hotel. Breakfast was really good with plenty of selection. We would definitely stay again.
breakfast was served from 8, I had to leave at 7.30 so missed it!
i liked location for the closeness to playhouse theatre where we were heading for that night also handy for shops and bars
Easy access to railways station and within walking distance of Edinburgh center
Not easy for people with walking difficulties or families with push chairs. 7 flights of stairs!!!!
two flights of stairs,parking is 15 pounds a night. It is next to a tram and bus terminus but has no double glazing making sleep impossible on weekends they don't serve breakfast until 9.00am making early starts impossible
great location for the theatre and very easy access to shops. Staff very pleasant and the premises ideal for what we needed.
the only very small problem for me was the building has no double glazing so you could hear a lot outside, but that wouldn't stop me going back
Location. Within walking distance to most necessary places. Breakfast was good. Staff generally helpful.
Too many stairs. Room too small.
Great location( near everything) to see the city at an amazing price. Friendly staff and wonderful breakfast. You will jto find a a better deal.
The staff was excellent. Breakfast was ok but the same everyday.
There was too much noise in the street. The bus station is nearby and buses and coaches were passing from 5 am up until midnight or so, apart from the excessive traffic in York St. We could hear even people speaking in the street at night.
Staff was very helpful and friendly.The room is not small and clean.
excellent location room size good staff helpful
dining room not large enough, embarrassing to be turned away because full and had to sit in room for 30 minutes until called.
Everything. Hospitality/ Great porridge Lovely Breakfast. Perfect position. Nice room, clean linen & towels. Wonderful.
TV signal kept breaking down.
The location is great and the price was quite good. The staff was very gentle and helpful. Generous and varied breaskfast.
The bedroom was not well isolated and the traffic was very noisy.
I received excellent customer service during my stay, all the staff made the extra effort, which I really appreciated.
The external bathroom was a bit awkward as it's in the main entrance of the hotel, but that's a very minor quibble.
The position was convenient. Breakfast was good
The double bed was incredibly uncomfortable and the sheet wasn't big enough. The room was noisy and the decor tired. The shower door barely worked and the shower was a dribble. £180 per night for this was ridiculous. We couldn't get the wi-fi to work upstairs
Staff were very helpful and friendly, the hotel is in an excellent location and the breakfast was great. The rooms are of a reasonable size and clean.
The stairs!!! This of course cannot be helped but be prepared, there is also a slight issue of traffic noise, but can only be expected in a city centre location and didn't detract from our stay
Nice welcome Good room private bathroom, great location, good breakfast.
Great location walking distance from train station, one block from airport tram. Lovely decor. My single room was long and narrow but elegant. I did not get to try the breakfast due to my early flight the next morning but the smells were good. The owner indicated he would take my suitcase down if I liked.
My private bath was a locking bathroom between my room and the reception desk. It was clean and comfortable and all mine. Most of the night it was quiet but I did not want to come out in pajamas to use the bathroom when I heard people at reception. There was a sink in my room also. I had a 46 lb suitcase and a backpack so the 3 flights of stairs before I got to the reception desk were not too welcome, but the bargain price was worth the climb. I wish that there were a sign near the entry level inside that indicated that the stairs indeed led to reception which was 3 flights up.
Monika (the B&B hostess) was extremely helpful and welcoming.
You have to walk up 5 flights of stairs to get to the B&B, but for us it was worth it
Location, good breakfast,old charm hotel
Breakfast Location Friendliness of staff En suite Coffee and tea making facilities in the room
Noise from outside Warm room Uncomfortable mattress
Good central location.
Full Breakfast not until 9am so had to do with toast. On a busy road.
Situation, friendly staff, cleanliness, excellent breakfast.
The shower room would benefit from an overhaul as the shower lacked power and the tiles, fittings etc were past their best. Family room situated close to a busy road limited sleep.
Attentive and friendly owner who made us feel very welcome. Looking forward to coming to use again and again.
A lot of stairs but this was totally made clear prior to booking.
