Very good 8.0
Everything we needed for a last minute overnight family trip

Good 6.0
Good location - 20 minute walk into central Edinburgh, and 20 minutes to central Leith. Check-in was quick and easy, and the room was nice enough. Clean and modern bathroom fittings. Only major problem was with the WiFi - the lady on the front desk claimed that the whole building was wired up with WiFi, yet the signal in my room (Room 2) was barely strong enough to load a basic webpage. Signal might be better in other areas of the house/

Not a bad hotel
Not a bad hotel, room needed some TLC and smelt a bit weird. Bed comfy but doors banging until the early hours.

Poor 2.0
Rude unreasonable owner
Rude owner asked an unreasonable amount to leave a flight bag for one hour. All the younger staff were bright helpful welcoming and efficient she should learn from them.

Exceptional 10.0
Great value,good quality.
You'll not find anything better at this price, and could pay a lot more for a lot less! Everything was spotless and the room felt like someone cared about it. Ensuite squeezed in in the corner, but perfectly adequate and clean. Plenty of tea and coffee provided, comfy beds, a decent shower and big fluffy towels. Only downside was the stained carpet, but it did look new and the room is freshly decorated, so I guess it's recent and proved hard to clean. Haven't eaten here, there's so many lovely places to eat nearby, and it's a short walk into the centre/station, or there's loads of buses. You can usually park (free) somewhere nearby on Pilrig street.
