Owner was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were clean and spacious. Not too far from city centre. Would definitely stay there again when we go to Edinburgh.

Great find - will return
Very enjoyable stay. Very friendly host. Lovely accommodation, gorgeous breakfast and brilliant location. Choice of 7 buses running past every few minutes for 1.60. Didn't need to use my car. Approx 25 min walk to Royal Mile. Bonus of free parking.

I’d stay here again
Nice location, right on the bus route to/from Edinburgh. Gracious and helpful host. En-suite was modern though the home is Victorian.
