AVOID AT ALL COSTS, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET RIPPED OFF AND BE TREATED WITH TOTAL DISPRESPECT THEN STAY HERE.
The manager of this hotel stands outside the bus and rail station promising rooms from £18 per night. Be warned he will more than treble the price once you have got there. The rooms are dirty, smelly and totally disgusting. I left the same day and contacted environmental health and the police about this place. They promise far more than (even on their website than they could ever deliver. The rooms were so very small, you would get more room in a broom closet than in the bedrooms themselves. There was NO tea and coffee facilities, There is NO internet access. The breakfast will cost you £15 per person extra for a bowl of cereal and a cup of cold tea. There is NO heating, NO hot water, no staff at all, and if you have any complaints then you will find the manager auses you or refuses to answer the phone.
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING ANYWHERE ELSE EVEN IN THE BACK OF YOUR CAR THAN EVER STAYING HERE. I WAS SO GLAD TO LEAVE THERE AND WILL NEVER GO BACK THERE AGAIN AND IF I CAN HELP ANYBODY AVOID STAYING THERE I WOULD GLADLY DO SO.
PLEASE, DO YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY A MASSIVE FAVOUR AND STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS, EVEN IF THERE IS NOWHERE ELSE AVAILABLE. IT IS FAR MORE WORTH STAYING OUTSIDE OF THE CITY THAN IN THIS HELL-HOLE.

The present review as well as any posted before the 20th of April 2011 are not regarding our guest house!
Our lease has started on the 20th of April 2011 for the building at 15 Mayfield Gardens, Edinburgh EH9 2AX, trading nowadays as Galadriel Guest House.
There is absolutely no connection between Galadriel Guest House and the previous businesses having functioned at the same address!
Thank you for reading,
Galadriel Guest House
