I was here for a business meeting recently and had booked a business lunch. The food was exquisite and the service was fantastic. The fantastic staff were so friendly and if this was a restaurant open to the public they would do a roaring trade. The food is homely and of a very high standard. I have also heard very...

Clean, comfortable, friendly, welcoming, overall good value. Free Wi-Fi and friendly staff. Basic room, but ideal for the cost & location - close to Morningside for food & drink options and an easy walk through The Meadows to the centre - bus stops also handy. Will stay again.

The place is peaceful and quiet with a wonderful garden, clean rooms and lovely breakfast ( we do not like full English breakfast in the morning!) with homemade bread , scones and pancakes besides other things.
