Can’t thank Kim and Andy enough the place was perfect for what we wanted. About a mile away from the centre perfect for when you have just eaten a gorgeous breakfast in the Abbey just around the corner. Kim was so informative and friendly. The rooms were clean and well stocked with tea and coffee. Thanks for a lovely weekend we will definitely stay with you next time.

Really lovely hotel, away from the busiest part of town but an easy walk away from Arthur's Seat, Holyrood Palace, The Royal Mile and the Castle. Good transport links too, although we walked everywhere. Great hosts, on arrival Andy talked through the local area with us and marked places on the map tailored to our interests. Andy also made some great recommendations for breakfast and dinner locally. The room itself was comfortable and clean with well stocked toiletries and tea/coffee facilities. Plenty of storage. Reliable Wi-Fi. Excellent value for money.

First of all I'd like to thank Andy for his valuable tipps and support throughout our stay. You can reach the City Centre by bus or private car in 5 minutes or by walking along the zillions of nice little shops and restaurants along the A7. The Guest house itself is a cute old building perfectly restaurated yet full of vintage charm and atmosphere. It's very calm at night. Even though the french bed wasn't too large for 2 Persons (we're not fat!), we had a good sleep at night.

It was our first time in Edimbourg and it was very easy to arrive here from the airport by bus (it stops very close to the street). The owner immediatly opened to us, and it was very easy to join him before we leave our country. Everything was absolutly clean. I recommand it, total gain price/quality!

We would like to thank Kim and Andy as they have been really kind and helpful during our stay. The Guest House was really nice, the room is tiny but was clean and has all the necessary. The position is perfect, close to bus stops and 30 minutes walk from the city centre (we always walked to the centre!). We suggest to take skylink 300 and stop at Minto street because it’s a direct bus to the hotel. Martina and Giulia from Italy
