Stayed for 2 nights- clean, comfortable & very welcoming. Nothing too much trouble. Lovely atmosphere & owners very friendly. 5 min taxi/bus ride to centre. Great view of Arthur's seat from bedroom window. New owners were very accommodating & the eggs served for brekky were delicious.

I stayed here for one night and the service was great. Very clean, great location and the service was brilliant. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to be close to the city centre and want somewhere clean and a friendly welcome.

Good location on well served bus route to city centre; parking at hotel or nearby, proprietors welcoming, friendly, and helpful; room clean and quiet and breakfast good. I was in town for the festival/s and the hotel was in easy reach of most of the venues.

we stayed here for three days during the 2016 Edinburgh Festival. Having enjoyed our stays we cannot understand the negative reviews on this site.

I stayed at the International Guest House for a night during the summer and really enjoyed my stay! The owners were incredibly helpful and friendly and made me feel completely at home - I especially really appreciated this as was travelling by myself and had an assessment the next day so was slightly stressed! The breakfast was lovely with quite...

Very clean and comfortable accommodation, bus to city centre located across the road. Very helpful owners. We did not have breakfast as we left early to go on day tours. Would definitely recommend this accommodation.

Stayed overnight with a friend whilst attending a seminar. Twin room was basic and definitely not value for money. Dated décor and old fashioned blankets and quilt instead of duvet. Milk sachets were out of date and when I handed these to the owner and told him, he just laughed!! Unfortunately, I left an article of clothing behind and, whilst...
