Booked in order to visit the zoo and to view the Pandas, stayed six nights in total, the room is very large and attractive with a pleasant outlook to a tree lined park. Quality of furnishing is very high, the bed excellent. Large bathroom with voluminous bath and excellent shower over. Hosts are friendly and attentive.The neighbourhood is quiet but a good range of shops and restraunts are within reasonable walking distance, busses are within 5 minutes walk and are frequent, reliable, comfortable and clean, also very reasonably priced.
I would readily return.
The Zoo is within easy reach either by taxi or bus and is well worth the visit. The city centre is also an easy bus ride away, the day passes on Lothian Busses are truly excellent, even getting you out to within striking distance of the Glen Kinchie distillery, (about 40 minutes from city centre)
For a straight forward dinner and drink I would recommend the "Kilted Pig" about 5 minute walk, friendly, Warm on a windy snowy night and an excellent Guiness! For a more adventurous meal the local Village will cover most tastes.
