Good 7.6 From 80 reviews

Thrums Hotel, Edinburgh
Terrible in the sense that the water was cold, sink stopped up most of the time. Shower was great. No real set time for housekeeping and never took towels or emptied trash unless we specified. Wi fi was never working consistently so impossible to locate places. Cover kept slipping off bed because duvet didn't fit properly. Had to sit in lobby to use wi fi. Most of the time no one there to assist and no phone. I would never stay or recommend.

Very Good8.0
Great B&B for the Price
Stayed a total of three nights over two different stays. The B&B was exactly what it needed to be. It was clean enough to be comfortable, close enough to city centre to be convenient and the price fit perfectly with our trip budget.

Thrums Hotel, Edinburgh
The room was not set up for a family room as it was booked. Four single beds were crammed into a very small room. Internet was slow. Free parking was a bonus though.
A Traveler, us2 night family trip
Thrums Hotel, Edinburgh
Rooms very very small, sheets a little bit worn and certainly not white cotton sheets like you might find in a premier Inn or similar, staff friendly enough but no...not for much so we didn't stay, after paying £175 for two nights I spent a further £230 to stay somewhere else, don't bother
