“Good price for location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Stayed here for 1 night last week, arrived later on into the evening, no hassles. Bed was a single, room was clean and tea and coffee were provided.Central location and easily a 10 to 15 minute walk to the main nightlife in Edinburgh, which i was happy about.

The guest house was good value for how cheap it was. Very very basic room and shower. The breakfast had a great variety with cereals, yoghurts, fry up, porridge, juice and tea/coffee available.

It was very Scottish with tartan carpets, had swords on the wall and plaques about William Wallace everywhere. I would see it as a place to put your head for the night whilst exploring Edinburgh during the day. It's central so you can walk to the main town in about 15-20 minutes.

Definitely recommend as a clean no frills, great breakfast and value for money to crash whilst staying in Edinburgh.

This was very good value for a single room with shared bathroom at £30 a night. I had no problems with maintenance issues, the bed was comfortable, tv worked well, and shower worked fine. The breakfast offered a reasonable choice of cereals and juices, and the full cooked menu was generous and tasty and included haggis, which I do enjoy when in Scotland. The check in was efficient, and staff were friendly and pleasant. I was quite intrigued that the name, and everything about the interior was very Scottish, including tartan rugs, and historical posters.. yet the guest house is run by people from the opposite end of Europe! The location on Gilmore Place is very good, only a 20 minute walk to the city centre, but also on two bus routes if you are in a rush.

Had a nice one night stay in this b&b. There were 5 of us in the one room and we didnt find it too cramped. Everything was clean except the sink seemed to be leaking in the bathroom. Its very good value for money and in a good central location. We didnt get up for breakfast so I cannot review that. Overall its basic but clean and I would stay here again.

Only one word: amazing! We enjoy the room and the Scottish breakfast. Room was cosy and welcoming. The hotel was close to centre so we walked all over. We were surprised compared with how much we paid. We recommend it to everyone.

Stayed here in September for one night. Was amazed to find a place in central Edinburgh which was relatively cheap but wasn't disappointed. The owners were a lovely friendly family, very helpful and put on a good breakfast. The room furnishings were not great, a little run down but for one night it didn't matter. A bonus was they also offered off street parking.

Convenient location, comfortable bed (double) and clean linens. The place is worn, but ok for a short, no-frills stay. Breakfast was lacking fresh fruit/veg, coffee was weak. "Vegetarian" full Scottish included an over-processed, greasy, previously frozen mushy fish cake, yuck. And the mushrooms seemed canned (from a tin) yet were sautéed in oil/margarine (at least the tomato was fresh). Breakfast didn't start until 8:30, almost too late for me. Ground floor room (the Glamis), was convenient, and quiet. Have to lock door with key going into and when leaving room.
Didn't notice if there is a lift to the first floor. Very near Kings Theatre and U of Edinburgh. Starbucks within 15 minute walk. Preferred this place to Averon GH, which is just down the street, tho Averon serves a better breakfast. Nice owner at Braveheart ( good staff at Aceron, too). Appreciated the fact that I could make a one-night reservation at Braveheart; lots of Edinburgh b&bs and guest houses required two nights, minimum. Watch out, there is a cancellation fee.

Room Tip: Ground floor Glamis room is convenient and quiet.
