Welcoming guest house
Such a wonderful host. She made us feel very welcome. Gave us lots of tips on things to do in Edinburgh in the short time we had. The room was a bit small, but none the less very comfortable with all the essentials. Extremely clean guest house. The continental breakfast was amazing. So much choice.

Great place to stay, great host, great location
We stayed at this lovely b and b for a family trip to Edinburgh. Host was GREAT and approachable and gave good advice on places to go, and how to use local bus service. Location perfect as you could walk into the centre, but also a bus stop just outside. Family room was nice size, and whole place very clean. Breakfast was nice too. Overall a great place and would definitely recommend.
