Positive Reviews

Hosts go the extra mile for guests.

Visitors feel extremely welcomed while staying at this guest house. The hosts seem genuinely interested in taking care of guests and are eager to help in any way they can to ensure great visits to the Scottish capital.

A great place to explore the city from.

This accommodation is just south of the city’s centre, but still near enough to visit many of Edinburgh’s top highlights. Because so much is within walking distance, travellers will be able to explore easily on foot or by hopping on a bus from a nearby stop.

Delicious, plentiful breakfasts.

Everything offered by the hosts for morning meals is well prepared and delicious, according to reviews. There are also lots of great choices that are offered, so everyone is sure to find something they enjoy.

Negative Reviews

Guest bathrooms are not ideal.

Some of the guestrooms at this accommodation have en suite facilities, while others feature private bathrooms. Many guests however find the rooms to be poorly set up with showers that don’t perform to expectations.

Parking can be very challenging.

There isn’t much parking available onsite, and the spaces that are set aside for guests are cramped and inadequate. As a result, guests may have to rely on nearby public parking options.

Situated on a busy road.

Being located on a popular street allows this guest house to provide easy access to several facilities, but it also means guests will have to deal with a lot of traffic. Noise from vehicles outside can be disruptive to guests and prevent stays from being restful.
