We booked the room through laterooms.com for £32 a night so where not expecting much. We where informed of the additional £5 per person for breakfast which as neither of us are big in to cereals which was all that was on offer thought this was overpriced and not what we would be wanting on a night away breakfast.
The room we where in was room 2 which was on the top floor with no lift and 3rd floor thank goodness we only had a small number of bags and mainly of the rucksack variety. Our toilet facilities where shared and outside room 4. The B&B (not hotel!!) is in a nice quiet area of Edinburgh 20-30 minute saunter from the main bus and train station at St James centre. Our room was definitely not one for anyone taller than 5’ 6” as the ceiling had a very large slant to it. The lady who booked us in was pleasant not overly helpful but not pushy for the breakfasts or such.
We were informed of the no curfew how to open the front door with the second key check out being 11am which is normal in the Scottish hotels and B&B’s we have stayed in unless you have paid for the late check out which was available here although we did not need it this stay.
The room itself was tidy nice comfortable bed SMALL wardrobe which for a 2 day stay was perfect for our suit, dress and such. The number of plugs (free to use) and the availability of WI-FI at £3 a day was useful although slightly expensive.
Other than Check in and Check out we didn’t see the staff our room was not cleaned during our stay although we did only stay for the the 2 nights not sure of the B&B policy on this. The bed was not turned down etc
We where looking for a cheap nice clean place to stay for a couple of nights in Edinburgh for a romantic meal and trip to the Zoo this definitely cover that wouldn’t stay again as a first choice but would consider it as you get exactly what you pay for if you get it on a deal.
