Very Good8.0
Excellent but..
All was excellent except the room was VERY tiny. A tight squeeze for 2 adults with full size suitcases. Location was a long walk from downtown area.

Lovely B & B
Whilst we were there just for an overnight, this was a LOVELY B & B in Edinburgh, beautifully appointed, with a very gracious host. It's a bit far from the city center, but it is easily accessed by bus. We wished we could have stayed longer!
