Reviewed 17 August 2013

I got back today from my trip to Edinburgh and I loved every moment of staying there. It is a real home from home. The breakfasts are great and it's not far from the town centre. The thing about it that marks it out from any other guest house, though, is the owner David who is so nice and friendly. I have already decided to stay there next year! Stay there. You won't regret it.

Booked in for one night for Edinburgh festival. All staff were friendly & very helpful. The room was at the top of the house,small, clean, bed was comfy , we felt fine for an overnight stay. It could do with a make over though as its a bit tired & worn looking. But everything was clean.We didnt have any problem with noise,but our room was at the top & back of the house.
The breakfast was one of the nicest we have had in a hotel /guesthouse. I had smoked haddock (no dye) 2 perfect cooked poached eggs & nice seeded bread,not the usual cheap brands. Husband had the full scottish which he was impressed with. All cooked to order.
And it was great being able to have private parking & a bus stop outside the door.

We stayed here for two nights for our wedding. The service was second to none. Made to feel at home and no request seems to be too much bother. If our travels take us to Edinburgh again we would not hesitate to stay here. Cannot praise them highly enough

After booking we were a bit concerned at spotting a critical review complaining about noise - but we found the location very quiet (despite a fairly busy road junction nearby) and heard nothing from other guests until we chatted over our breakfast, which was truly excellent.

The room was a little tight for space, but I thought it was good value for what we paid, service was friendly and courteous, bed was comfortable and that cooked breakfast was every bit as good as other reviewers say, with lovely moist haggis and the novelty of a 'Lorne sausage' - a flat, square variation on conventional sausage.

The gated secure parking was an added bonus. We were lent a remote control so that we could come and go at will.

If you want five star luxury then don't stay here. If you do want personal service with very friendly staff then this is the right place. It is not like a big impersonal hotel but it is a nice building with very nice people to look after you. We stayed in the building at the back which was absolutely fine for what we wanted. It is well equipped with everything you need and perfect to use as a base when visiting Edinburgh. We did see some of the other rooms which were old fashioned (that is not a criticism) but they were full of character and in keeping with the building.

There is secure parking and you can order what you like for breakfast. The only thing that we struggled with was the shower as it ran hot and cold and one day was completely cold. The bathroom is not big but perfectly adequate.

It is near to a bus stop which takes you into Edinburgh and seem to run every 10 mins. We used a car and found the location to be very good in terms of getting around.

Anyone with mobility problems would struggle with the higher floors but the outbuilding would be suitable. The bed was comfortable and the room was serviced every day and towels changed if required. We also had tea and coffee making facilities. I would recommend this place, we were very happy and would stay here again.

We drove into Edinburgh and the hotel was easy to find and had great, gated parking. The staff was friendly and accommodating with lots of great info and lovely breakfasts. The walk into town was easy (though there was a bus, but we are walkers) and was about 30 minutes to the Royal Mile from the hotel. The garden was gorgeous.

embarrassment factor), we didn't report it. We flushed about 75 times and finally the water came. I thought it was a fluke from our room, but I used the toilet by reception the next day with the same issue. Just a note to be aware of.

I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
