Positive Reviews

Close to Town

Guests liked the fact that this guesthouse is close to most of Edinburgh's main attractions in both Old Town and New Town. Due to the central location, guests could walk to most sites or take the bus when the walk was too far.

Very Good Breakfast

Guests have raved about the quality of the breakfast at this property, as the hosts make plenty food and it is all delicious, according to guests. This helped guests to get off to a good start each and every morning.

Helpful Hosts

The hosts at this guesthouse go out of their way to keep their guests happy and this has been appreciated by those who have stayed there. These hosts are said to be friendly and accommodating whenever guests experience an issue.

Negative Reviews

Exterior Bathroom

Some of the rooms don't have an en-suite, but rather a bathroom that is located across the hall. Guests found this less than ideal because they couldn't lock the bathroom when they weren't using it and, therefore, couldn't leave their toiletries behind.

No Lifts

Guests have complained about the fact that the property doesn't have any lifts. While this was acceptable for those on the bottom floor, those who ended up on the second or third floor struggled when carrying their luggage.

Street Noise

In rooms that are above the street, a fair amount of noise is present at night. This made it difficult for guests to sleep at night when staying in one of those rooms.
