Allison House, Edinburgh
Allison Hotel.
Parking was promised...and we did finally park but lot is VERY small. No food available. Restaurant is a good 20 min up hill hike. Rooms are small and there is no elevator. 2nd floor rooms are 44 stairs up! However, room was clean and comfortable and right on the bus line.

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

Great. T
The staff was very courteous and accommodating. They have us a lot of guidance for the area since it was our first time in the area. The two sisters and Michael were very courteous.
