I originally booked the break but had to rearrange due to a family bereavement. With no refund possible the owners were good enough to allow me to transfer the booking to another night rather than lose my money completely.
The room was clean and although small, my son and I had a restful nights stay.
Despite no mention on the website we were disappointed to find the rigidity of their breakfast serving times (8am to 9.30am). As we had to be somewhere for 8.30 this serving time was too late, and when we asked if we could perhaps have a breakfast option slightly earlier (by only 15 minutes!) the answer was a flat no! Be warned, if you are a business traveller or have an early morning commitment this place might not be for you. I'm sure it would be fine if you like a long lie!.....
Appreciated the flexibility shown in the first instance, but not regarding breakfast. I have stayed in Edinburgh hotels for 40+ days this last year, but sorry to say I won't be back here. In life it's the small things that make a difference, a little extra effort here would have given a better impression.
I appreciate at £55 per night for the two of us it was pretty cheap, but hopefully this feedback will give you a chance to improve your offering.
