Reviewed 17 September 2007

This was my first experience of staying in a B&B in Edinburgh and I can say that I will definitely be making a return visit to this attractive Victorian guest house. The owners were friendly and made every effort to ensure that my stay was a comfortable and enjoyable one. The bedroom was well furnished and there was a high standard of cleanliness throughout. There is easy access to the city centre buses from outside of the guest house and this enabled access to a lot of the Fringe events taking place during my visit. I look forward to my return visit in the New Year!

We found the hotel management very welcoming and the food was excellent. The room was very comfortable and had en suite facilities. The guest ohuse is very convenient for the city centre and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who was visiting Edinburgh and required accommodation. I will certainly recommend it to my friends. Thank you for an extremely pleasant stay Gladstone House!!

Stayed in a room soooo small I could touch both sides of the room with my arms outstreched. It rained that night and I could not sleep becuase of the battering rain on the skylight in the room.

I moved accommodation, but becuase I didn't give them 14 DAYS notice for a cancellation we were charged for the four nights we originally booked.

Carefull that they don't punish you if you don't like the room and want to move.

Feedback of any kind is always valuable and we were sad to read that our guest did not enjoy their stay.

We try at all times to be fair and honest with our guests when they book and to this end when a single room is requested we ensure that we tell the person making the booking that this is our only single room and that it is small (2.4M by 2.5M). In this immaculately restored Victorian house it would originally have been a servant’s room. The room was described in detail to their employer at the time of booking. If this message did not get to our guest from the person making the booking and they were expecting one of our more spacious en-suite rooms, we can understand their disappointment when they arrived.

Regarding the cost of the room, when our guest left before the agreed end of their stay, their company was advised that we would charge them for the room unless we were able re-let it at which point we would issue them with a refund. Their company opted to put another of their employees into the room and we therefore kept the room for them. However their employee did not appear. When we were able to re-let the room we issued a full refund for the night re-let to their credit card after contacting their administrative team to advise them of the situation.

Again we are sad to hear of our guest’s disappointing experience and hope that the above goes some way to explaining the events, as we understood them. Should our guest wish to contact us to discuss it further we would be happy to do so.
