We have paid a lot more for a whole lot less, this is up there with the best and at a price to fit most pockets. This is old world style with up to date comforts, situated in a quiet area away from the hustle and bussle while being central to all Edinburgh has to offer.

Could not be happier with our stay, the owner went out of his way to help us. This is how hotels should be run! Forget the big names, book here and get a huge breakfast thrown in! Easy access to city, we will return.

We had no concerns about our stay here, except perhaps for the price. The location is excellent, on a quiet street in a nice neighborhood, close to buses and close enough to walk to the center of the city. Room was compact but comfortable. We sleep well on a good mattress. Bathroom good with plenty of hot water and good... More
