Very Good 8.0
The hotel is a fairly close walk to most sights in Edinburgh. It had all the basics, but we had issues with internet from day one. Our room had very poor connectivity--we were all constantly losing our connections, which can make for an unpleasant experience if you have work to do while one vacation.

It was a place to sleep!!
The location was good just a 15min bus ride from Edinburgh city Centre. This is an older house converted to just rooms. We were in the family room for 5 on the 3rd floor, so this was quite a few stairs but not too bad. Sheets and towels were good and clean. Decor is need of updating at the very least a good clean! There were big dust balls around a couple of the beds, dirt around the baseboards and shower. Paint on the walls and ceilings look like they were done in a hurry!!

Clean and convenient
Surprise how large the room was. Enough space for the 4 of us. Clean. Lady who greeted us was nice. The guest house was located conveniently near shops and lots of bus service.

Quaint guesthouse in lovely B&B neighborhood
Very welcoming guesthouse, very clean, bus stop literally in front, about a 30 min walk to royal mile... quiet neighborhood, beautiful views... only negative, the mattresses were very thin and inexpensively made. Everything else was lovely.

Good stay at decent location with very good shower
Serviceable location with a great bathroom and double plus 3 twin beds in a room. Be prepared to walk two flights of stairs, but you are across the street from bus stop with on main road to the old town.
