Allison House
Edinburgh June 2018
Really accommodating nice clean rooms apart from parking only available for 5 cars

Allison House
needs a lift. Windows rather dirty
Anthony, gb1 night trip
Allison House
Not bad
Reasonable , no where to park outside. Plug broken in the sink. Ridiculously small bathroom , more like a cupboard with a shower in it ! Beautiful sash window but the cords were broken so unable to open it & it was stiflingly hot in the room , so quite uncomfortable. ‘Travel style’ kettle which leaked , lid broken . Very attractive area .
