“Nice quiet location, handy for Edinburgh centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2008

This B&B is situated on the south side of Edinburgh. It is on a pleasant quiet street a couple of minutes walk from the A701 main road with frequent buses to the city centre (10 - 15 minute journey). Parking is on-street but I didn't have a problem finding a space and it is free. There are several pubs and restaurants within 10 minutes walk.

The proprieters are a friendly couple who seem very house proud - the place was immaculate! Usual facilities (TV, tea and coffee in room) plus tourist info in the hall and a good cooked breakfast with plenty of choice.

  • Liked — Great location
  • Disliked — Breakfast time gets busy as they have to serve and handle check-outs at the same time
  • Stayed May 2008, travelled on business
