I have been very fortunate to travel extensively over the years and every now and again you stumble across a real gem. Wallace's place is well laid out, stylishly decorated and roomy. One of my best mates from Uni and I where in Edin for a friends wedding, arriving on a Friday night and leaving on Sunday.
Wallace greeted us with a sense of warmth and hospitality that reminded us of an old family friend or uncle. We where made feel completely at home, our rooms both had en-suite showers and Wallace has a sense of style that really sets his place apart.
He spoilt us to a fantastic breakfast, not a heavy fry up but fresh juices, cheeses, figs, croissants and lots of strong coffee.
It turns out that Wallace, has led a very interesting life. Having been in New York for some 20 yrs and more recently spending time in running a guest house for artists in Italy. He is a major part of the charm and a true gent. I would recommend his place to one and all.
Don't bother with the characterless hotel chains when you can stay here for less but gain so much more.
