Stayed here over the Festival period. Good clean basic hotel. Graham and his little helper Ella are very nice, pleasant and helpful. Breakfast very good and served quickly. Room has everything you need -TV, tea and coffee, beds made daily, plenty of storage space.
Ideal location in the Tollcross area, loads of shops, eateries , transport all on your door step. the 10 or 27 (make sure the 27 is a LOTHIAN 27 if your getting it back from the city,) buses into the city centre.
Easy walking distance to the Grassmarket area and other areas of the city.
Was a bit pricey being in the festival season so imagine it would be less other months, which would represent good value.
My only gripe was that the our room on the front could be noisy. Its on a major bus route and gets noisy from early morning to late at night. but there are a lot of b and b's on this road and imagine its the same for all of them.
Didn't bother us really, but one night we were in bed earlyish about 11, and it was VERY noisy. May bother others /families with children. If I ever went back I would want to look at other rooms. But we really enjoyed our stay.

A great location, with buses at end of street, also good walking distance to Princess St. Close to supermarket, and restaurants. Clean room, very quiet on ground floor. Host looked after us brilliantly, very good breakfast. .

Room Tip: Even though we were on the ground floor next to the dining room, there was no noise, very quiet room

We had the great pleasure of staying here twice when looking for a new home. Relocating is very challenging but not when you have Karen.

Over the most lush of breakfast we had good chats with guests and Karen. She really made us feel welcome and ensured we all mingled (if we wanted - which we did). It was like visiting family, well the family you want to visit. Only joking, but the point is made.

Do stay here and have a wonderful time.

Excellent walking distance to everything you need.

Room Tip: Some have excellent castle views
