“Craigmoss Apartment Review”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

The apartment is very central for the town centre - about 20min walk. We managed to park outside at first but were told be a local resident in no uncertain terms that it is parking permits only and the only other parking space we could find was about 1 mile away so we wouldn't recommend this apartment if you are travelling by car. The "garden area" is a grassy space to the side of the property (unfenced). We couldn't find a way into the rear garden so we were gald we didn't bring our dog as there was no secure place for her. It is also used by all the other local residents so there was a selection of tatty old chairs there. I am afraid that the kitchen utensils hadn't been washed properly and I had to clean the grill pan and frying pan before use and there was a sticky substance int he bread bin which I didn't notice at first until I put a loaf in and it stuck to the bottom. We were also woken up by exhaust fumes from a car outside the bedroom window as the window does not shut properly. All in all we were dissapointed as we have stayed at the guest house twice and it has been fine.

Room Tip: Not suitable if you need to park nearby

Craigmoss, Owner at Canadale Guest House, responded to this review, 23 June 2013
I am sorry that you were disappointed with your stay in the apartment. We will certainly look into the cleanliness issue as it is not something that has ever been a problem. Having stayed with us twice previously you will know the quality of service we offer. The apartment is not advertised as having an enclosed garden.The parking is out with our control but as in most major cities parking is a problem. You have been fortunate when staying at the guest house that there is free on street parking. The windows are left open at times to air the property but it is a ground floor city centre apartment and with the windows open there is a risk of city fumes coming in. I would also like to say that guests who use the apartment enjoy staying there, they find the apartment comfortable and especially like the location and proximity to the city centre.I do hope this has not put you off returning to stay with us and thank you for your comments as we do value them.

My daughter and I stayed at Craigmoss last weekend. We had a two night stay in a twin room at the top of the house with a private bathroom. It was very comfortable, everything was clean and tidy, the breakfast was good and the owners very friendly. It's within easy reach of shopping and the Playhouse theatre. The bus stop across the street takes you straight to Princess street and the return journey stops two doors away from Craigmoss. Well worth a stay, we will probably be back.

We stayed at the Craigmoss just this weekend and I cannot praise it enough. It is in an excellent location, the staff are brilliant and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. We really felt at home there and were made to feel so welcome. The bed and pillows were AMAZING! Thank You to all at Craigmoss. This guest house represents excellent value for money...we will be back!!!

So I have just come back from a weekend stay here and it was lovely we arrived late at 10pm and the owners didnt mind they said we could come and go as we please. Room was clean and spacious and the pillows wow. We went into Edinburgh centre the next day with was about a 15 minute walk a lovely walk and some lovely pubs near by we found the b and b easiky and we drove and parked round the corner. All in all I would go back much cheaper then other places near by and also breakfast was lovely :)

We stayed at Craigmoss for 2 nights recently. The room (comfortable bed, TV, drinks) and the private bathroom were clean, warm and nicely decorated. Arriving late at night was not a problem, owners of the guesthouse were very helpful, and we received a lot of information about where to go and what to see. Location was ideal, 15-20 minutes walk from the station, city centre (Castle, Princess St.) and also from Holyrood Palace. Nice breakfast (variety of options) and the lovely decorated interior made our stay enjoyable and cosy.
Would recommend!

We stayed here for 2 nights in April 2013.

As we were travelling in the evening from Manchester we were not due to arrive until late Friday evening. The owner, Isobelle, was very accomodating of this fact and we made arrangements that allowed us to check in with ease upon arrival.

Having checked in to the room we decided to head in to the City to see what it had to offer in the evening. We were pleasantly surprised that it only took us a 10 minutes or so to get to the Centre. The benefit of the proximity to the City Centre was further evidenced the following day with a range of local cafes nearby for breakfast once we turned on to the main road.

We had a double room with private bathroom suite, which was across the hall. Whilst not ideal having to walk across the hall, the bathroom suite and the room were both lovely and clean. I would say the possibility of running into someone in the hall is remote, but nevertheless is something that you should consider when booking a room here.

On the Sunday we decided to have the breakfast provided by the Guest House. This was excellent. The cooked breakfast was not overly greasy, which it so often can be, but the best option (highlighted as such on the selection sheet) had to be the natural yoghurt with fresh fruit and honey. It was refreshing and delicious.

As our train journey wasn't until 4pm and check-out was at 10.30am we were concerned as to where we may leave our bags, but Isobelle was more than accomodating of this fact and we were able to leave our bags at the Guest House until we were ready to depart to the station at about 12pm.

TIP: If you are wanting to use your last day to explore near the Castle or that side of the City and are catching the train from Edinburgh Waverley station, I would recommend taking your bags to the National Gallery, which has lockers for hire for a refundable deposit of £1. This is much better than using the storage facilities at the station that are £7 per item for 24 hours or part thereof. So for our two items we paid nothing at the National Gallery but would have been charged £14 at the station for only a few hours storage.
