We stayed here for two nights, we had a very big room, with a small bathroom. Towels were rough and not really clean. There was nothing to dry the floor after a shower. Breakfast was ok, our host was very friendly, she gave us good advice about where to get dinner.

The location was good, the owner was a very lovely lady but the place was filthy. Mold in the shower, the toilet seat was broken, sink hanging off the wall, cold tap didn't work. Badly bitten by bed bugs. Not worth £95 per night!

Thank Louise D

The family that runs it is very welcoming and friendly. My experience there couldn't have been better. The neighborhood is pretty and well located for walking to the Royal Mile or taking a bus. My room was cleaned every day. It felt very homey. Nadia was a sweet and informative host. I liked having a friendly cat around to pet,... More

Clean beds and towels. Satisfying, continental breakfast. Great location close to public transportation. Rooms are cozy and clean. Choose room with toilet inside. We stayed in a annex in the back of the house, and we had privacy. Recommend to those traveling on a budget. Great host/owner-Nadia is a great lady. Helpful and chatty.

We booked a family room with ensuite. We were arriving late in the evening so called in advance to let the owner know, which she was ok with. Nadia was friendly and helpful and accommodating to our needs. We were shown up to our room, that's when then trouble started. The room we were given was big and spacious and... More

I gave this a five rating based on how welcoming and friendly the owner is. She is really warm, seems kind hearted, and very helpful. Lovely to chat to. When staying here my son (8 years old) said it felt like home, and even had breakfast in his pj onesie one of the days. He is usually shy, but he... More

Parking terrible... Had to lug baggage from remote on-road parking to front door as you can't stop outside... Room draughty... Breakfast poor... Not close to the centre but at least the buses stop outside. Not recommended unless you're after very cheap and cheerful!

Thank Ged L
