To start on a positive note, the house is impressive, the wi-fi was reliable, the bed comfortable and the location was quiet but close enough to walk to town if you were feeling energetic. Now for the disappointment... I booked this last minute and got the last room which didn't have an en suite bathroom. On arrival the owner was...

Well this is a bit interesting. Been to many guest houses,hotels,b and bs but this is a strange one. Booked this at short notice and sort of expected guest house that would be attended by someone but on arrival I pressed the bell and it went straight to a phone call which was not answered. I then rang the number...

Been to MW for 3 days. The place within walking distance from city attractions, shops and restaurants. If you want a place to sleep with a quiet environment you may choose this one. In a local house ambience, a good try.

Really helpful staff, handy location for city centre, rooms are large, basic but clean and tidy. Only negative was they need some new pillows. We stayed room only, they do provide breakfast but we chose to eat elsewhere.

We've had a very good experience here, so much that we've stayed quite a few times now. The service has been very good, very friendly and helpful. We know our way around, and we mostly want it for a clean, safe, comfortable place to sleep after a long and busy day out. And it's all for a reasonable price.

Acceptable location (walking distance to some restaurants etc, and also Castle etc if you're keen). However; poor value for rate paid - tired/dated amenities - no onsite management - paper thin un-insulated walls. Suggest there's more pleasing accommodation options for this kind of money.

The room was adequate. It was very clean, but the bed was hard. It was also a little further out from the city than I would've liked. Heads up if you book the Drambouie Room then the bathroom is not attached to the room.

Mw Townhouse is located near Edinburgh City, easy to get to and well connected with transport into the city (15mins); the room was clean, well equipped; it took a bit long for warm water to come in the shower which is a pity because of the waste of it and of course it's annoying; breakfast is ok, nothing special; breakfast...

Let me start with the good things. The accommodation: our room for two was on the ground floor with a balcony exit to the backyard parking. The room was spacious, furniture ok. The bathroom looked brand new and I have no complaints there. The location: bus stop right outside the hotel, 3.50 pounds for an adult day ticket, 15mins to...

I can't imagine that anyone would give this place a good review. Other people must have very low standards as to what is or isn't a nice place to stay. Their web site description states they have luxurious standards of comfort, high quality accommodations along with a hearty breakfast. None of this happens to be correct. We told the owner...
