The Valentine City Centre Guest House is situated on all four floors of an 1813 Georgian Town House, a significant building in Edinburgh's history being a prototype of the Edinburgh 'three-door flats' layout later used throughout the city. Such a historic building can have no lift of course, but if you book a room on one of the upper floors up the wide original stair case, then we will of course assist with luggage if you would like. The building is 'B' listed, due to it's history, and the original worn stone stairs are still used between the lower and upper 'halves' of the property! Tollcross? A long time ago, cities raised part of their finance by charging a toll or tax to enter the city,One of the tolls was in the area now known as Tollcross centred on the junction where the famous clock now stands. Originally a pendulum clock, in 1926 it became spring driven and was wound once a week by the makers. Gilmore 'Street' was constructed in 1798 through property owned by Samuel Gilmore who owned a ropemaking factory on the north side of Gilmore Place, as it became known. Older maps show the spelling as 'Gilmour', which is probably the original authentic spelling.
