    Beautiful place with lovely host.

    Beautiful guest house with a great host. The photos of this place dont do it justice! We stopped here for two nights and had a lovely welcome and waa shown every thing once we arrived such as how the shower and door lock worked etc. The host was very knowledgeable on the area and provided us a map and explained how the local buses worked and all the different ways we could choose to walk in to the centre. It was very evident that the guest experience is important to him and that is a rare commodity now! We chose the night before what we would like for breakfast the following morning and what time we would like it and it was delivered bang on time and was lovely! The room was very clean and more spacious than we expected for the price and had lovely big windows which made the room nice and bright. The rooms are cleaned daily and our tea, coffee and milk was also replenished. The bed was a little soft for us but that is just personal prefernce, however the bedding was also lovely and soft which i really liked! There is free on site parking which we had no problem finding a space but there is also free on road parking. The lovely host also let us leave our car there after checking out whilst we went in to edinburgh centre before leaving on the last day. We arn't normally guest house people and normally go for hotels but this changed our mind completely and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

    Lovely quiet B&B with fantastic breakfast!

    Comfortable single room with ensuite toilet and shower. Very quiet. Owners are very friendly and efficent; breakfast was really great and freshly prepared. You mark your selection the night before. (hot and cold options availble) The city centre is around a 10 minute bus ride from the stop 2 mins away or around 30 mins if you don't mind walking. If you fancy a swim, drop by the nearby 50m commonwealth pool which is awsome! Lovely stay, thanks so much!
