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.
