Fair 4.0
The big problem with our room was lack of space.It would not have been such a problem if there was not a set of stairs inside the room which occupied valuable space in such a small room.As Edinburgh regulars for the past 12 years this was by far the pokiest room we have ever stayed in.As we only stayed 3 nights we decided to just grin and bare it.In the set of pictures of the rooms picture number 4 and 11 are the two pictures which conveiniantly eliminate the stairs.Two adults can not walk around at the same time it is that small,basically a childrens bedroom with a double bed,kids wardrobe with a tv stuck on top.Also the springs of the mattress could be felt through,doesnt cost a lot for a mattress.Make sure if you book this b and b room 3 is the size of a kids room .Travelodge next for us.

Charming, old, traditional B&B style guest house
It was a nice little guest house. Charming but not fancy. It was cheap and to the price very, very nice. There was everything you needed there to be. I slept really well. The host helped us with public transportation during our stay and with taxi to the airport. Breakfast was typical British - bacon, eggs, beans etc plus toast, juice, cereals. No garden - that would have been nice. We could walk to the city, but around ten busses or so also went there 2 minutes from the hotel. The bathroom was a shared one with two other rooms, but we never had to wait. Typical old British style toilet - carpet on the floor and difficult to flush, but we decided it was part of the charm. All in all, we have no complaints and had three wonderful days.

i would not stay here again
we arrived and there was no one to greet us. I noticed that there was an envelope at the side of the doorway with our room number and keys. Our room was little, dated and could be done with an upgrade. the linen was clean, the flowers dusty, cheap furniture and carpets old. The position of the bed was at an angle that you only had about 10 inches to get past the end of the bed frame and the wall. The bathroom is pine lined, a small shower cubicle and was in dire need of being replaced. as it was a shared bathroom with 2 other rooms. Breakfast was ok, some of the items must have been cooked and reheated. overall for what we had paid to stay there for 2 nights was expensive and not what i would have expected.

WeArrived earlier than expected, suffering from jet lag. We were delighted when staff greeted us warmly and showed us to our room which was already waiting! Our third level room would be best described as cozy. The shared washroom was next door. Although small, it was comfortable and clean. Staff were very pleasant and we enjoyed visiting with Sarah while she prepared our breakfast. Our morning breakfast offerings included fresh pastries, juice, tea or coffee as well as an excellent cooked breakfast with choices of eggs, bacon, sausage, tomato and mushrooms. If we had a downside it would be the stairs to our third floor room. The spiral stair case has 22 steps to each level. Characteristic to the era of the house it was pretty but a major hurdle to anyone who may have mobility issues.

Good location, warm and friendly host
This was a mix of experiences which ranged from ok through to excellent. The building was originally a large house and our room was spacious with a high ceiling and decorative plaster-work; such a shame that the inclusion of an en-suite was unsympathetic being just a partitioned 'box' in the room. It was functional rather than aesthetic with plastic panels rather than tiles which added to the contrast between old and new. The fan made a horrendous noise so was used as little as possible. One bed comfortable, the other less so. Breakfast was straighforward and served rapidly as cooked in anticipation of guests arrival at the table rather than on demand which could mean it had been kept warm for some minutes - eggs were always upside-down! Sensible portion sizes with other options available (never offered porridge or haggis but thankfully no square sausage - each to their own). There was never any poor or unsatisfactory elements to our stay but we did gain the impression that it just lacked a homeliness feel.
