    This was our first stop and night in Edinburgh. Our wonderful host let us check in early. This sure helped us as we were tired and stressed from travel and trying to drive in Edinburgh. lol We had a wonderful stay at their home and they provided us with 2 wonderful Scottish breakfast to start our day with. If you run across my review and you are trying to decide...let this help you...stay here, they are the best, you will feel at home and be treated great!

    Wir haben drei Nächte hier verbracht und hatten insgesamt einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt in Edinburgh. Das Guest House liegt strategisch äußerst gut, denn die Busstation ist quasi vor der Haustür. Dort hält der Airlink Bus 300 vom/zum Flughafen und eine Vielzahl anderer Buslinien, die alle in wenigen Minuten direkt in die Altstadt fahren. Die Gastgeber waren nett und zuvorkommend, die Unterkunft fast peinlich sauber. Absolute Spitzenklasse! Unser Twinroom (2 einzelne Betten) lag im obersten Stock unter dem Dach, das dazugehörige Bad jedoch auf dem Flur. Das war für uns nicht weiter schlimm, ging aber aus der Beschreibung nicht hervor. Das sollte vor der Buchung bekannt gegeben werden. Das Frühstück war super lecker und ausreichend - es gab immer genug frisch gebrühten Kaffee und fehlende Sachen wurden auf Anfrage nachgelegt. Unsere Anregung hier - im Zeitalter der Nachhaltigkeit: Anstatt der vielen einzeln verpackten Müsliportionen und kleinen Marmeladen-Plastikpackungen sollte man unbedingt auf Müsli-Spender und Marmeladengläser oder -schalen umstellen, um den Müll zu vermeiden. Das Doppelzimmer war extrem sauber, jedoch für 2 Personen mit Gepäck nicht allzu groß, es reicht jedoch vollkommen aus. Die Betten sind mit bequemen Kopfkissen und komfortabler Bettdecke ausgestattet. Eine Anregung auch hier: Es sollte dringend über neue Matratzen nachgedacht werden, denn diese sind wirklich komplett durchgelegen. Alles in allem ist die Unterkunft aber auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen!!
