MW Townhouse, Edinburgh
Very nice room on ground floor, big and very clean and quiet. Hosts very nice although not around much after am. One thing check out should be at 11 not 10 and breakfast is too early as well. Otherwise good choice.

We had a very lovely night here. It is not close to the airport, but not too far from transportation to the airport. The owner was very helpful and kind. The neighborhood is clean and safe and overlooks Arthur's Seat, which is a must-see. We would definitely stay here again.

Miserable night
Please do me a favor and don't book this hotel. They have no idea how to treat a guest, and feel their entitled to ruin someone's vacation. Upon our arrival we told the person at the reception to turn on the heater as it was very cold in the room, he said "you don't need heater it's summer outside" it was 50°f and where I come from that's my winter, so he shouldn't make assumptions that it's war just because it is war for him. He completely turned of the power for the heater so not even when we got back to the b&b were we able to adjust the temperature in the room. We complained to the person that was there the next morning and all she did was shrug her shoulders. And she asked us the get out. Terrible experience, I will definitely stick to hotels from now on.

The Guest house is not occupied by the owner, they have a intercom system and the key is left in an envelope for you to pick up on entering. The bathroom was dirty with dust on the bathroom mirror (Wiped to clear mist whilst shaving) and a non-secured sink in the bathroom. The hot water boiler broke during our stay. the one day we did get clean fresh towels, they too were marked. There was hair in our bed (clean sheets tho). No room service Saturday morning.
