Had difficulty finding accommodation to attend an event in the area. Glad I found this gem.Really enjoyed our stay and Catherine very welcoming. Beautiful room with a big comfy bed. Spotlessly clean. Lovely breakfast. Would highly recommend.

Catherine, our host, was very welcoming. The room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was good, and the other guests were nice as well. Private parking is available round the back and there is a busstop nearby with busses that go into Edinburgh. Leith is easily accessible by car. The two dogs in the downstairs area are large and very friendly.... More

We had a lovely stay here, Catherine was very welcoming (as were her beautiful dogs) and could not have been more helpful. The bedroom was lovely with a very comfy bed, breakfast was delicious. The guest house was ideal for our needs as we were attending a local event and we will not hesitate to use it again. Highly recommended.

Booked in for a family funeral and was given nothing but hostility. No warning about dogs roaming freely. My father and I took our luggage to our rooms and locked the doors, upon our return the doors were wide open and we had to check to ensure nothing had been stolen. Police were called and we got evicted for something... More

Mike G, With reference to your first ever TripAdvisor review - you failed to point out that the real reason why the police were called was because you and some members of your family were drunk and disorderly as well as incapable - with the exception of your mother and father. That is the reason why you and yours were... More

We stayed here for two nights from 3rd-5th March, we booked a family room for three of us, myself, my husband and our 19 year old daughter, our room was spotlessly clean and very spacious and although the third bed was a pull out bed, my daughter found it very comfortable, the large double bed was also extremely comfortable and...

Fantastic guest house run by Katherine, just a short bus ride from Edinburgh. Great little pub across the road and a two minute walk into the little village of Tranent which has most shops, PO, laundry etc for travellers. Katherine's two old english sheepdogs will welcome you and there is parking on the site.

Visited Edinburgh for the first time & it was truly wonderful experience. B&B location is perfect for sightseeing in Edinburgh & surroundings. Breakfast is decent. Catherine the host lady was friendly & looked after us very well. If we visit again we shall surely stay at this place again.
