This bed and breakfast is charming. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was modern. There are tea and coffee facilities and ample bedding as well as a hairdryer, shower gel and shampoo and towels. The location is amazing, 10 minutes walk to the centre or £3.50 approximately by taxi. I would definitely stay again. Thank you :)

Comfortable beds and GOOD shower in your room =) We checked in past 11pm and the host was very pleasant with our late check in. The host is very friendly and nice. The place required street parking. Clean pleasant place to stay. We stayed in June 2015 but unfortunately were unable to leave review earlier!

The guest house is a great choice if you are on the budget and don't mind not having breakfast and wifi included in your price. However, there's the option to pay extra for that. The room was clean and very nice. The location of the guest house was ideal as it was close enough for walking to the city centre...

nice sized room but the bed was extremely thin and was pretty much sleeping on the bed frame, bathroom was horrible ( extremely clean though) way too small, managed to burn my leg on the radiator whilst I was on the loo it was that cramped in, couldn't turn the temperature down either! Shower was either freezing or scolding hot!...

Decent room but very basic considering the price. Did not see the host after the initial check in and was not there for check out. Was not aware of the charge for WiFI and when I got it there were restrictions on what I could access it. Premises are well located about 20 minutes walk from Princes Street and even...

The hotel is close to the city centre and the staff were pleasant enough. They are the only positives I can give for this property. We were locked out in arrival then taken to a very dingy reception which looked more like someone's sitting room. Very unpleasant. Our room was in a basement through a very depressing entrance hall. The...

This is a hotel made from two houses, you go in part to come out again and into the other half. We were taken down to the basement into a very small room with a window the size of a postage stamp, no way of getting through that if there was a fire, they had a glass door in the...
