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.

Sleep before a flight
Overnight stay before flight the next day. This a great place to stay before a flight especially if you have a hire car to return. It’s on a road and on the flight path but it’s perfectly quiet. Amenities are good and parking is on site. The hosts are friendly and breakfast was nice.

Nice accommodation at a good price.
Nice accommodation at a good price. It may be useful to mention the Guesthouse does not have a kitchen and does not serve breakfasts, but plenty of options/restaurants closeby.

Cheap Cheerful & Location Plus
This place had all we needed as a base for exploring Edinburgh for a few days. Good views of the mountains from front rooms. Booked the quadruple which provided ample space. Check in was easy despite arriving on an early flight. Staff kindly stored our bags and took them to our room when ready. Multiple bus connections outside were the highlight. 10mins to city centre. 35 mins to Rosslyn Chapel. Lots of bars restaurants close by. Wifi connection good then not ( on top floor). Would stay again.
