this was a delightful guest house with charming and helpful hosts but totally overpriced for the facilities on offer. the room was adequate and nicely furnished. It has beautiful sash Georgians windows which give you a hernia when trying to open to let in some fresh air. The pillows were poor as was the very thin duvet. The bathroom was...

Capturing that elusive balance between stylish and cozy just perfectly, they were a treat. Free wifi, roomy with high ceilings,...

My husband booked a long weekend in Edinburgh for my Xmas present, and boy did it deliver! We could have stayed closer to town but if we had done so we wouldn't have discovered this little gem of a guest house. The owner, Angela, is a chatty, friendly owner who did us the massive favour of letting us check in...

The room we had was beautifully decorated, spacious, cosy and with a great comfy bed. Breakfast each morning was lovely, cooked to perfection and accompanied...

Booked last minute and was lucky to get a cancellation of rooms. Arrived and was made to feel most welcome, hosts really friendly. Rooms lovely and really clean. Luxurious fixtures and fittings made it feel really special. Breakfast fresh and a good quality of food and tableware. Definitely recommend this and will return.

Can't praise this guesthouse highly enough. From the welcome to the departure everything was 100%. So much better than than an impersonal chain hotel. Warm genuine hosts. Angela is a natural hostess. I will definitely return on my next visit to Edinburgh.
