Our hostess Kim did a very good orientation to navigating and enjoying Edinburgh. This is a lovely old home that has been well kept up. We were surprised by the daily room clean service. We did not stay in an en suite room but rather share the bathroom with other guests. This was not a problem at all and indeed during our stay in the guest house was quiet. The location is not in the bustle of the main drag and we liked that, But if you want to be in the more keyed up area with night life around you, you might want to be closer to the center..As middle-aged healthy types we walked to the Royal Mile and attractions and made our pedometers very happy. There is plenty of good public transportation at hand, however. There are a surprising number of good restaurants a few blocks away. We enjoyed the Abbey, the Southpour, and my favorite was the Apiary. They were Indian, Moroccan, and Italian restaurants that look pretty good as well but we just didn’t get there. Enjoy!

Very good 8.0
The owner is very kind and helpful. The home is lovely with great furniture. Our room was beautiful and comfy. However the WiFi is horrible and the shower gives you hot water or pressure. Not both. Would stay here again. Hopefully not on the third floor next time. The staircase is narrow and curved and I have mobility issues. My sister was totally fine with the stairs though if you don’t have problems with stairs

Great location
Very convenient location and perfectly adequate room to stay when in Edinburgh. Very pleasant and helpful owners and enjoyed our stay immensely. No elevator but Andy offered assistance to carry luggage upstairs. Would prefer an ensuite but shared bathroom did not pose any problem.

Good choice for a stay in Edinburgh
Nice room with comfortable beds in a calm area a little bit outside of the city center but with a good bus connections.
