We orginally chose this guest house as we were on a small budget for accomodation and Minto House seemed good value for money, especially for Edinburgh and July. I was a bit apprehensive as the reviews were mixed.. and I was right to be.
On a positve note the guest house is very clean, although the garden is a bit messy with toys lying about. Overall it seems a bit dated and could do with a spruce up though. The loacation is quite good, not really really near the town centre but it doesn't matter as there is a bus stop almost right outside it - the bus service is so good in Edinburgh anyway you need not worry and is cheap - £3 for an all day adult ticket you can use as much as you want. There is a Tesco Metro nearby and nice cafes within walking distance if you're hungry or need something else.
The room was clean although very small although the ensuite was good, it looked quite recently installed. It was just small things like the rusty toiletries holder and no desk in the room to do your hair at or anything that spoiled it a bit too.
Wasn't happy with the service provided. Only continental breakfast but that didn't matter, as we knew that when we booked. I suppose you get what you pay for and at the low price don't be expecting luxury - it's ok maybe for a night or two. After this experience I probably will spend a little more money on accomdation in future especially if there are more than a few negative reviews for somewhere, this was particularly disappointing for me as there is a lot of choice out there if you shop around for not that much more per night.
