This gem of a guest house is tucked away in a cul-de-sac just off of bruntsfield place. Its easily reached from the centre with a short walk or buses. The area it's self is surrounded by lovey boutiques and independent shops ( much like Gloucester Road in Bristol) and fantastic restaurants. The breakfast was superb me or my wife couldn't...

I cannot speak more highly of this wonderful bed and breakfast. Huge choice at breakfast, vegetarians, vegans and GF's will feel especially well looked after here. I particularly enjoyed the vanilla pancakes with maple syrup. The house is very comfortable and peaceful. Communication was good at all times and clear guest information emailed before our stay.

My other half booked this for my birthday. I would advise you to pre book parking through the town house as the road the town house is on is permit only.
