Good service
It was a little bit away from city center, but it can access by bus. Also, aloow us check in late and keep out luggage after check out. Also gave us information for sightseeing.

I stayed here for 5 nights during the peak festival season in August. The owner was incredibly nice and helpful, and genuinely wanted his guests to have a great visit to Edinburgh. Room was clean and cozy. The breakfast was a basic continental but plenty to get you up and energized for the first part of your day. Although the location is about a 20 minute walk from the city center, I appreciated the quiet neighborhood considering the city center was extremely loud and full of tourists at the time of my visit. Also, there are plenty of buses in the area (with stops either right across the street or a 3 minute walk around the block) which run every few minutes. I actually ended up taking the buses quite a bit as the 20 minute walk seemed like a lot after several hours of walking in the city center sightseeing/shopping/going on tours each day. But again, this was no problem as they ran so frequently and stopped so close to the house (This includes one of the buses that goes all the way to the airport!). Overall, I had a great stay and would absolutely return on any future trips to Edinburgh!

The lodging met my needs as I needed a safe and quiet place to stay while visiting the city with my family. The proprietor is extremely friendly, kind, and provided us with needed information to make our trip much easier.

Our stay was in the middle of the festival season, the guest house was sold out every night yet our hosts were very attentive to our questions and helpful in every way possible. Great place, highly recommend it!

Perfect, cozy stay!
Super cozy B&B. Owner was very nice and accommodating. House is old but extremely well taken care of - a very charming place. Room was very comfortable. Everything was excellent. Would stay again in a heartbeat.
