Thornfield Guest House, Edinburgh
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.
