The room was spacious. The double bed was comfy. The staff is friendly. The one thing I didn't care for was since we were on the bottom floor and had to have the window open for some air, people were right outside the window smoking....More

The environment felt comfortable. It felt safe. Reminding us of our student years. Nostalgic. The location is central. Park, stores, center on walking distance. Nice bar across the street where we had a small drink at the end of happy holiday!

Great value for what you got. Basic but clean. Quite location and an easy walk to Arthur’s Seat across the meadows to selection of restaurants. Small place so not too noisy from others when in own room
