Walking distance from Edinburgh City Center
Blossom was just what I was looking for, a place within walking distance of the city center and private parking, for a reasonable rate. My room was cozy, well-organized and clean, with a nice view outside the window. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Since I had to leave very early on my day of departure, my hostess left a bag of breakfast food outside my door.

As a last minute booking to drop our daughter at the university it was good value in comparison to other hotels in the area .

A great find
Lovely guest house from the minute I arrived till the moment I left all was well. Nothing was too much trouble, the single room I was in had a quiet outlook over the back garden, a good powerful shower and the bed was fine ( queen size ? ) Great transport links into town with a bus stop only 50 yards away and regular service into old and new parts of town. The walk back to the station on Only took a very gentle 30 minutes.
