“good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2012

A great location, with buses at end of street, also good walking distance to Princess St. Close to supermarket, and restaurants. Clean room, very quiet on ground floor. Host looked after us brilliantly, very good breakfast. .

Room Tip: Even though we were on the ground floor next to the dining room, there was no noise, very quiet room

We had the great pleasure of staying here twice when looking for a new home. Relocating is very challenging but not when you have Karen.

Over the most lush of breakfast we had good chats with guests and Karen. She really made us feel welcome and ensured we all mingled (if we wanted - which we did). It was like visiting family, well the family you want to visit. Only joking, but the point is made.

Do stay here and have a wonderful time.

Excellent walking distance to everything you need.

Room Tip: Some have excellent castle views

My husband and I had been double booked in a B&B and this fabulous family offered us a room, although they were in the middle of a changeover from their previous tenant. Graham and Jeanette who actually own this establishment have renovated, re-painted and spruced up this lovely accommodation. We were met with a friendly smile, and apologies that the house was not yet completely refurbed and even though this was the case, they let us stay in one of the redecorated rooms in the attic. They have two lovely daughters who also help them and a B&B opposite which is run by another fabulous member of their team called Lorna. I cannot emphasise how lovely our stay was, the breakfast was great and the rooms were spotlessly clean. The B&B's are literally a two minute walk from the Kings Theatre and five minute walk to Princess Street. If you want a relaxing stay with lovely company and professional service this B&B is a must. After a spout of bad luck with the previous running of this business I just wish them both the best of luck as they deserve it and must be given another chance by any previous customers that would not have returned. This place is truly lovely and the family are marvellous and approachable. Thanks again for your friendliness and great hospitability in our time of need.

Fantastic location and such an entertaining and genuine host; what a shame we were the ones to be served her last breakfast here!!
Karen made us so welcome and gave us a run through of the places to visit, things to do and the best places to eat. Great local knowledge from a great local! Did I say she was leaving today? Such a shame! I hope she sets up elsewhere, I'll definitely visit!
So glad we got there in time for her "Smashing Scottish Breakfast"!

Myself and my husband spent a great weekend in Edinburgh, Karen is the best host we have ever come across, she is such a warm and pleasant person who gave her all to make our stay a memorable one. The fact we could park our car up for the whole weekend with no added cost was a bonus, everything was in walking distance, FANTASTIC STAY, WE WILL BE BACK .
