Capital Guest House, Edinburgh
Our stay was in the middle of the festival season, the guest house was sold out every night yet our hosts were very attentive to our questions and helpful in every way possible. Great place, highly recommend it!

Perfect, cozy stay!
Super cozy B&B. Owner was very nice and accommodating. House is old but extremely well taken care of - a very charming place. Room was very comfortable. Everything was excellent. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

I think the website should be clear about what private bathroom means and en suite means. The host told us many get upset when they were told the room has no bath room. We were lucky, the guest house was not full and the host kindly switched us to bigger room with attached bathroom. The host is very frindly. We stayed 4 nights, the room not cleaned and same towels.

I wish I could give it a higher score.
The manager/owner was truly incredible and the best part about the place. The interior was shabby, breakfast was unimpressive, and the shower water pressure was hideously poor.

The bed and breakfast is a little run down and its a pretty long walk to the old part of the city... Breakfast was minimal , I think we could have found a better place to stay more conveniently located.
