Very comfortable stay
Very comfortable stay at Clan Walker. Our hosts graciously accomodated a last-minute early checkin request which helped take care of our jet-lag. Great location, allowed us to park the car and walk (20 minutes) to Old Town. Breakfast was excellent. Highly recommend this place.

Amazing stay
This guest house exceeded our expectations, the room was spacious, we had a bathroom to ourselves, the breakfast was amazing and I loved the system where you could choose what you wanted for breakfast by writing it on a list provided by the guest house, the owners/staff were very friendly and welcoming and it was located beside a frequent bus stop, Arthur seat, lochs and many more and you could walk into the city centre easily in approx 30 minutes. I would definitely stay here again, it was money well spent

Fine stay
The owners are friendly and very helpful, but my top floor room was cold even with the radiator on full blast (but they gave me a small heater to use which made the difference), and even when off the electric shower in the en suite kept going on and off loudly all night).

Nie wieder Clan Walker Gästehaus, Raum 4
Beim Frühstück am ersten Morgen kam ein Mann, ohne Morgengruss, Smalltalk und Vorstellung auf mich zu und forderte mich auf mein Motorrad welches ich platzsparend am Rande geparkt hatte woanders hin zu fahren. Am Abend kamen wir in das Zimmer zurück, es war nichts gemacht. Keine Betten gemacht, kein Badezimmer geputzt, kein Mülleimer geleert. Erst auf Nachfrage gab es eine Erklärung. Die Silikonfugen im Bad schwarz von Schimmelpilzen. Die Fenster schlecht bedienbar und undicht. Nachts wurden wir ständig geweckt weil wir glaubten es fahren doppelstöckige Busse durchs Schlafzimmer (Raum 4 liegt direkt an einer stark befahrenen Straße). In das Doppelbett kann nur von einer Seite eingestiegen werden, es steht in einer Niesche

Petit déjeuner copieux Très bon accueil Cependant cet établissement n'était pas très propre . Moisissure dans la salle de bain ; store de la fenêtre cassé, poussière sur bord de lit, radiateur qui avait un fonctionnement douteux

Gute Lage und super Frühstück
Sehr nette Leute und super Frühstück. Leider hatten wir das Zimmer zur Strassenseite und es war sehr laut.

Ce n’est pourtant pas très difficile de mieux fair
Belle demeure bourgeoise, pièces de grand volume. Malheureusement certaines prestations demeurent insuffisantes. Ainsi avons-nous trouvé des restes de nourriture sous la tea-table au milieu de la pièce. A notre retour à 18h, les fenêtres ouvertes et une température extérieure de 3 degrés, nous avons dû réclamer le chauffage. La liaison Wifi s’est révélée aléatoire à moins de 50% du temps. Sinon le petit dej est correct et la guest house bien placée à moins de 30 mn à pied du centre ville.
