Not a very nice owner he should be demoted.
The owner is a thief and he pretended on the last day with his work staff to place a patch of water above the Radiator and made out we did it to take some of the deposit money which was not on the original booking. i told him he should be ashamed of himself and his working ethics. it is digusting. and very rude, the water was planned, and one inch wiped by his staff then blamed us, saying it would £30.00 to re decorate, Theft from a single mother and children Abusive.

Did everything we wanted
Booked this guest house as a stopping place for visiting the Fringe festival, and did everything we hoped for. Rooms were spacious, shower was good, and the location was good (about a 20 minute walk to the city centre). Value was very good considering it was during the festival. The check-in process was a bit bizarre, but not necessarily bad, and the breakfast options seemed a little expensive and the timing was restrictive so we didn't use this. Overall, a good stay.
