Very nice.
Very nice stay. Graham was so nice. Lovely neighborhood and breakfast room. Only downside on comfort was bed was soft and old, and room a bit warm, but otherwise fine. House was further out from town center than we had thought, but it was easy to get bus service to castle and downtown.

Cruachan Guest House, Edinburgh
Comfortable. Great breakfast. Close to city center
Outstanding! Graham is a friendly and warm host and makes a hot breakfast to order. The room was clean and spacious. 5 minute walk to Meadows park, about 15 to the base of the castle hill - or ~£8 cab ride. Great location. Will definitely try to stay there again.

Comfortable, friendly, easy access.
Lovely owners and only about a 15/20 minute walk along a nice road with lots of restaurants and stores.
