Had to have a double room as no singles available.(which made it expensive). Nice big room, clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast was adequate. Friendly,helpful staff. Would stay again. Can`t understand the negative comments!

Good location. On site parking and bus stop right at gate. Large room with window seat where you could sit and enjoy the view up to Arthur's Seat. large modern shower room. Limited selection of continental breakfast but adequate. Host and particularly hostess very pleasant. Would not hesitate to stay again

Stayed here last weekend for two nights and after reading some of the less than positive reviews on here I was pleasantly surprised! Nice clean, big room with a spacious en suite, free wifi and parking and the staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly. Good continental breakfast each morning and a bus stop right outside with services...

We stayed for only two nights, and thank God for that! The room was damp and cold, the sheets were damp too, as were the towels, and they smelled of mold. The toilet didn't flush, and the water in the shower was barely a trickle, and barely warm. The breakfast was expensive, not worthy of the name English breakfast, and...

We stayed for one night for my birthday as were were spending most of the day and night in the centre. We left booking a hotel too late so ended up booking MW guesthouse which I was very nervous about as I'd never stayed in a b n b before. When we arrived to check in and went to our...

Stayed here for 4 nights, how this place got awarded 4* is a mystery! Placed on the corner of a main road and a cul de sac, the road is busy and noisy however its an easy bus ride in to the city centre. The rooms are drap and uninviting, the first room we were offered was at the back...

Highly recommended. We were nervous about our booking at MW Townhouse because of the mixed reviews. After a three night stay we could not find one fault. The staff were friendly and really helpful; the rooms are spacious, modern and clean; and the location is perfect - only a bus ride to the city centre from the stop outside the...

We paid 'Fringe' prices to stay at this Guesthouse and like others, I cannot quite see where 4* has come from. Maybe they are doing the minimum to achieve. When we arrived the host made it clear that there was a time slot of between 8-9am for breakfast and not to turn up at 8:45-9.. In other words we should...

During the fringe time of year it can be very hard getting somewhere to stay in Edinburgh without spending a lot of money. The MW townhouse provided brilliant value for money firstly, because it was not overpriced. Secondly, it was a twenty minute walk from the centre of Edinburgh but a ten minute walk to the main fringe locations (Pleasance...

I stayed at the townhouse for 3 nights on business. For a room to stay it just about makes the grade. As a place for a holiday I do think you would be disappointed. As a romantic break certainly not. The locations not great, being a 10 minute cab ride from town and on a busy road. It has no...
