    We enjoyed our stay here, The guest house is a couple of stops away from the centre, like the Royal Mile, etc. The breakfast was good, the room was comfortable and the guest house manager very attentive.

    Had a great time. Very welcoming staff, nice rooms. Breakfast was good too, even though they don't seem to like cheese :) Close enough to the city centre but also close to Holyrood Park. Really enjoyed our time here.

    Three of us spent one night here, in two rooms whilst visiting our student son at Edinburgh university. We received a very warm welcome and enjoyed a good nights' sleep in spotlessly clean and nicely decorated rooms. In fact, the guest house is nicely decorated...More
