The rooms were not too big, but neat, tidy and comfortable, everything was very clean, the breakfast was delicious and our host very friendly and helpful. Not really close to city centre, but fast and easy to reach by bus. Had a great stay, can fully recommend it!

Cozy and welcoming guest house. Super friendly and helpful staff. City centre is 30minutes away on foot but very easily reachable by bus. Airport connection not optimal. Very nice room and very tasty home-made breakfast.

Christie was so amazing! She went above and beyond what was expected of her. She went out of her way to assist us with places to visit, prices and types of bus routes, maps! She even went as far as booking trips for us and packing us breakfasts on the days we left early. Nothing was ever too much of...

A fabulous little guest house in a perfect location for the city centre and Arthur's Seat. Room was perfect as was breakfast and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. All information required for a very cosy and comfortable stay in the city was provided and the hospitality was second to none. We will return very soon!

From the moment we rang to arrange a check in time to the wave goodbye from the door, this little guest house was fantastic! Rooms are lovely! Breakfast was great but the lady who was running it when we went (didn't catch her name but she had short blonde hair) was truly a joy and made our visit really! We...

This really is a lovely place to stay. We were greeted at the door like friends and nothing was too much trouble. Our hostess made us feel so relaxed and 'at home'. The whole house was spotlessly clean and the ample breakfast was cooked perfectly. When we asked about buses into the city she even checked on the Internet to...
