Owners are fab and friendly. We had the Baird room which I thought would be tiny - not so, it was perfect and plenty of space. Bed lovely and comfy, good shower. So peaceful, never bothered once by anyone, no road noise etc. 30 mins to walk into town in a nice area. Breakfast tip top and loads of choice....

Enjoyed our stay here, Think there still working on improving their hotel and service as I know that they only recently bought the business off someone else. I'll start with the Cons before the Pros. Stayed in the Scot Room, on entering the property I was somewhat impressed but just a tad underwhelmed at the room. TV was tiny and...

We spent a couple of nights there. It was quiet, clean and cosy. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The property was a 30 min walk from the old town, where the main attractions are. Would definitely go there again!

Ard Na Said was the perfect place to base our trip to Edinburgh in. The breakfast was delicious and a great way to start each day. The staff was very friendly and made us feel at home. This guesthouse is about a 20-25 minute walk to the Royal Mile.

Guesthouse is in good location only a 15 minute walk to town, and with regular bus routes towards it. Steven was very welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. Breakfast was excellent with lots to choose from and good portions ( and on time which was very good as we had a busy schedule planned). We stayed in...

Room ok but lack of customer service let it down. Met management on arrival but no contact after. Room not serviced. Choice for breakfast Met management on arrival but no contact for rest of stay. Room not serviced. Limited choice for breakfast with small portions-half a rasher of bacon! Street parking mainly permit holders only so some guests received parking...

Dear Susan I'm very sorry to hear that your stay with us was not up to your expectations. I do try my best to interact with all the guests, but as I hope you can appreciate some periods are a lot busier than others and therefore there is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes as well...

Checked in late on a friday night. The owner wasn't there but had sent us easy instructions to get in & get our keys. We were in the Burns room & it was lovely. The bathroom was gorgeous, everywhere nice & clean & well laid out. The beds were super comfy & cozy. The breakfasts were excellent, plenty of choice...
