Needs refurb and time
We stayed here for 4 nights from 26th to the 30th June. The owners only took over on the 3rd June so were very new to owning this BnB. When we arrived no one was in and I rang a tel no. Which was on the door. The first number was out of service but got through on a second no. They had left the key in a box on the wall. We let ourselves in and were the only people there. We didn’t see anyone until the morning when we met one of the owners Mia. She is lovely and very friendly and really tried hard to make us happy. The breakfast room had empty boxes lying around and was very sparse. This was fine for us, the full English breakfast was very nice. We were in the only room with a king size bed - it was dated but ok. Well it was ok until the last night when we found bed bugs and when I looked under the bed it wa hollow where drawers had been and I could clearly see bed bug casings in the bottom. The following morning we went down to breakfast earlier than normal as it was our last night and sat there for nearly half an hour before anyone came to serve us and by now the b n b was full. A man did pop in after about 20 mins to say someone was coming. Finally a lady arrived who is the other owner Yuki. She got straight on with serving with no apology. The breakfast this time was disappointing. At check out I advised her of what we had found, she apologised and said she had ordered a new bed and carpet but they hadn’t arrived. This rather spoilt our overall stay, wouldn’t return

Good place to stay
Check in was easy and the managers were pleasant. It was not located particularly close to major attractions, but it was fairly well connected to bus lines. This was a pretty good value for Edinburgh.

Fair to middling
Austere and very formal, quite antiquated. Room was - and felt - cold. Service was pleasant but slow. Good location - lots of parking. Ok as a BnB but I can't really recommend.

Great time in Edinburgh
Great. Easy to find, close to the centre, on a main bus route, room clean and tidy. Everything that you needed and a great breakfast. We would stay again.

Nice place just outside city center. Buses run constantly from close by, so getting there is no problem! The building itself is lovely with comfortable rooms and clean bathrooms. Providing clean bathrobes was a nice touch for those of us staying in room without ensuite bathrooms! Breakfast was very good, cooked to order with so many choices!

Enjoyed a one night stay here. Traditional B and B, service was very good but room a bit dated. Host gave us excellent information re local buses and parking and it is very easy to travel in and out of city using the bus.

Nice older place
Nice hotel. Old house, very sound. Breakfast was good. Check in is interesting when you have to talk thru a doorcam. Not the first time having to do this so it was ok. Great location, 30 minutes walk to downtown and only minutes to shopping and restaurants.

Quick Stop
We spent mostly sleeping time at facility due to travel plans. Rooms were clean and good. Our room 5 has bathroom across the hall (but private). Not good if you need to get up at night, find the key and get out. Busy road was a bit noisy. Breakfast was plentiful and good. Eggs, toast, yogurts, cheese, meats, cereals available.
