We loved the location on the edge of town. Parking is included and we did not move the car for three days. We were welcomed by both Fiona and Jimmy and felt right at home. She gave us an intro to the place and also to managing Edinburgh. There is a comfortable sitting room downstairs and the breakfast room. Our... More

I've just been a guest of this guesthouse and highly recommend it. The house is in a strategic position (30 minutes walk to the Royal Mile Market or bus stop within walking distance), near the centre but in a quiet place. The guesthouse is very welcoming and treated. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is delicious.... More

I booked with an online agency and on arrival I was informed that it had been necessary to re-arrange the bookings and I was offered an upgrade - at no additional cost. Instead of having the single room I’d paid for I was offered a ‘superior’ room with a four-poster bed. (The owners advised me, for future occasions, that booking... More

good quality but pricey over Hogmanay. It was a lovely room - exactly what we needed. it was a nice breakfast - hearty but I guess this was what what we were expecting! The bed was comfortable although a little small and bit too much furnture it was sufficient for us to enjoy Edinburgh

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely B&B. The double room (opposite to the road) was quiet, clean and very comfortable even if it was a bit small to put our luggage. There is a lot of choice for the breakfast : scottish breakfast, vegetarian breakfast, pancakes, or waffles. A free parking is in front of the house, which... More
