“Great Value B&B in a Very Good Location”
Reviewed 18 December 2010

As someone who spent 11 months staying at this B&B I feel well qualified to submit a review :-)

This is a very good value B&B which is located approximately 10-15mins from the city centre (directly opposite the zoo). The rooms are spotlessly clean and very quiet considering the B&B is located on quite a busy road. I never failed to get a good nights sleep. There are plenty of buses which stop right outside and go either into the city (good for tourists) or head in the opposite direction towards Edinburgh Park (good for business people).

Joanne is an excellent host who will take care of your every need, be it an early breakfast, iron, directions to somewhere etc.

Overall I cannot recommend this great value B&B highly enough.

Reviewed 3 October 2010

Unfortunately we could spend only 2 nights at this guest house. The room was simple but spacious and so was the en-suite. There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room as well as free wi-fi internet.
The hostess, Joanne, and her husband were really kind and helpful. Joanne also provided us a light breakfast in room as we had to leave very early in the morning.
The price is very reasonable compared to other guest houses in the area, and it includes an excellent cooked breakfast as well as a good buffet of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, milk and juices.
The location is great, directly opposite the zoo. Various buses to the city centre and the airlink stop just in front of the guest house.
If you are looking for a clean, reasonably priced accommodation in Edinburgh, check for MacIntosh guest house.
