          Staff were brilliant! couldn't do enough for us. Happy with the stay. only complaint I would make is that I was slightly too tall for the bed. The location was spot on for us, can be quite of a walk to the city centre.

          Friendly hosts and comfy accommodation. Basic but good home cooked breakfast. Privacy of a hotel and warmth and comfort of a home at an affordable price. Parking on the street was freely available (over the wkend). We definitely recommend this place.

          A small guesthouse close to Arthurs seat, quiet room with plenty of space, no frills or pretties, but adequate. Clean room and bathroom. Simple breakfast, but again adequate for the day. Owners very polite and cheerful. Parking is a nightmare in the area though.
