Neighbourhood
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

Excellent value for money. I spent two comfortable nights in this welcoming guest house. The standard was extremely high and I would have no hesitation in recommending this venue. The location too is close to the city centre and on an excellent bus route.

"Our room was at the front on second floor but still quite quiet."
"rooms on the top floor would be difficult for anyone with a mobility problem, as they a re quite steep, but no problem if reasonably fit."
"They are all as good!"
"Room nr 1 recommend"
