Owners were very kind and helpful during our stay, and facilities were good enough to stay comfortably. We'll come back there when we visit Edinburgh again.
A very pleasant guest house in a good location - very good value for money!

reasonably priced, very clean and comfortable, helpful owner, good breakfast
kettle in room but no tea/coffee, either have everything you need or nothing. didn't expect to have that facility but by having kettle there it annoyed me that i couldn't make a tea
The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. When I had three hours to wait until I could check into my next hotel, Margaret let me stay a bit late in my room. A big chain hotel is seldom this flexible. The room was large and quiet, the location was central, and the price was absolutely stupendous. This is what a "family operation" should be. I would absolutely stay here again.
Very clean, nice food, large room.
The noise from the traffic.
Central To sites clean and comfortable
When described as off street parking we expected a carpark not a non permit back street park where you can
Helpfulness of owners/easy access to town via bus/interesting location
a sitting room would have ben good on the ground floor/licensed premises
Friendly service without being intrusive. Very nice breakfast!
