Allison House 17, Edinburgh
Fantastic guest house
From booking to breakfast to booking out our stay was excellent. The manager on duty when we booked in was fantastic. Made us feel very welcome and advised us on how to get in the city and get around. Parked our car and left it there for 2 days. Breakfast was delicious. Our room was great. On the top floor with former windows itvwas a step back in time but with all the mid cons. Loved it and so do many other people it books out fast so I've you want great comfortable friendly accomodation close to the city book this now
