Very highly recommended!!!
Staff was *extremely* friendly and helpful. Room was large and comfortable. The only downside was the worn out mattress. But there are new owners, who just took over a month ago, and they told us they'll be replacing them. Hotel is on a bus route to center of town, so very convenient. We will *definitely* stay in this hotel on our next visit to Edinburgh. Very highly recommended!!!

Just ok...barely
After finding my coffee cup with dried coffee residue on my first evening, I had to wonder about housekeeping. Breakfast was good.

Very nice hotel
The owners could not have been nicer or more accomodating. The hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, which we enjoyed. Breakfast was really good and ample. We would definitely stay here again!

Could be better but reasonable for the price
This bed and breakfast guest house could use some upgrading. I booked the room on the very last minute a few days before arriving given that it was located about 1.5 mile from the city center and reasonably priced. While the b&b is conveniently located next to a bus stop that has about ten different buses heading into the city center, the surrounding area has nothing else so make sure you purchase whatever you may need before going back to the room. The room itself was clean but the 1980s mattress can use an upgrade and I think its time to change the blankets too. Wifi connection was horrible in the room but the moment you stepped out of the room and downstairs to the lobby it was perfect, actually so good you can even stream high def. movies. What was absolutely annoying was the fact that breakfast was served between 8:00 - 9:00am and for some reason the other guests including the owner felt it was necessary to be extremely loud and therefore wake other guests who just wanted to sleep in. While the owner was nice, we didn't receive much advice from him on what to see or where to go which didn't matter because we did our own research but nevertheless it would be helpful to hear some recommendations from a local. We loved Edinburgh very much, the city is beautiful and our favorite in the UK however I'm not sure if I would recommend this guest house to others unless you're willing to pay for a place under budget and don't mind the negatives I mentioned above.
