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.
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.
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.
Location and the friendliness of our hosts. Had a wonderful two days.
The owners are super-friendly, we arrived rather late at night and were still welcomed in a most accommodating manner. Room was very quiet (as requested). Lovely breakfast (vegetarian option available). Location is perfect, only a short walk from the castle. We would definitely stay there again.
A proper lock on the bathroom door would be nice and the shower did not have a lot of water pressure (it's an old building though, so I guess this can't be easily changed). Otherwise nothing to complain about!
The stairs to reception and the rooms. A bit noisy with the busses and trams
greeted well, not overly bothering you ,but there if needed with advise and suggestions. rooms nice and clean plenty tea/coffee and a teapot (nice touch).nice white towels. lots of choice for breakfast and nicely/promptly served. would definitely recommend and use again. very close to centre.
Location. WIFI signal excellent.
Harry was very welcoming and made us feel at home. Breakfast was excellent. Would definitely stay there again.
location & breakfast
still fit enough to climb the stairs
The location was very good, the breakfast was excellent and the host outstanding
Our view but not everyone can have front view
Location, friendly staff, lovely breakfast, clean room and comfy bed
Good value, well situated ,well maintained and nice decorations with added extras, very helpful staff, good cooked breakfast. Will be going back overall a Excellant weekend.
We stayed with our teenage daughters who loved having a bigger room than us. The breakfast was to die for my husband loved the porridge and cooked Scottish breakfast. We would recommend this guest house to anybody, good location and fantastic friendly staff. Can't wait to go back one day.
Not a good guest house for people with mobility problems as it is on the third floor and the only way to get there is a lot of stairs no lift.
Listed building. Very homely atmosphere. Friendly family run guest house. Lovely cooked to order breakfast. Willingness by our hosts to help us make the most of our stay in Edinburgh with their local knowledge.
The stairs to get to the accommodation but given every assistance with our luggage.
warm welcome from Murray, spotless room, very warm radiator(much needed after getting soaked in rain!!) lots of tea and coffee, excellent breakfast, round the corner from Princes Street, good bed
They were so obliging. We had to leave early to catch a bus. Breakfast wasn't served until 9.00 a.m. but the manageress insisted on cooking us scrambled eggs and smoked salmon so we wouldn't leave without a good meal. Very nice room well equipped.
Obviously the stairs were a big drawback but once you were in the hotel proper it didn't matter.
