Stayed her in late June, Doreen the owner is anexcellent host, gave us loads of great information. Advised of a local Chinese (The Panda) best meal we've ha in ages. B&B is a 15 minute walk from the centre and easy to find. We stayed in room 8 and the bed was fantastic. Breakfast was cooked fresh and was very good. Will stay here again.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here in November 2010 for my 21st birthday and had a brilliant time despite the heavy snowfall. Doreen was very friendly and chatty (although she did say it wouldn't snow as bad as last year and I think it was worse!!), breakfast wasn't the best I've had but better than I could cook and still lovely. The rooms were very clean and modern and I loved the double shower. Very easy to get to Princes Street and next time I am in Edinburgh I will be staying here again.

(I have put July 2012 purely because I can't review any earlier)

Just spent 3 nights at the star Villa in Edinburgh, what a wonderfull place to stay. As well as being very convenient (15 min walk to Princes Street) Doreen the host goes out of her way to make your stay so special. The rooms are immaculately clean, warm and confortable and the breakfasts are out of this world. We have have booked another 2 trips already for this year, if we can't wait to get back there. Thank you Doreen for a wonderfull stay we will see you again in March.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

I stayed at the Star Villa in October whilst visiting Edinburgh for my birthday!
My boyfriend and 1 booked one of the small rooms as it was only a base for our stay; as we spent most of our time exploring the wonderful city.

The room was just nicely decorated and very clean. It was just whaty we needed. A comfy bed, clean shower and toilet room. We also had a mini fridge which was a nice touch for keeping drinks we bought to the room cool and also the room has a kettle and facilities to make tea & coffee; along with a couple of shortbread biscuits!!

The lady who was there during our stay was lovely (Not sure if it was Doreen) and greeted us each morning and was helpful when we asked where was nice to eat and about days out etc.

The breakfasts were nice and was of the standard expected for what was paid.

I would recoomend this B&B to anyone visiting Edinburgh; great location as its only a short walk to the centre.

We recently spent a weekend at the Star Villa, followed by a trip north to visit our son, and then another weekend with our son and his girlfriend at the Star. When we first arrived Doreen greeted us at the door by name (such a nice touch when travelling a long way to be warmly welcomed). We stayed in two different rooms and both were very clean, had everything in them you could possibly need for a comfortable stay, i.e. small frig, hot pot for tea and coffee, television, wifi, blowdryer, iron. The beds were comfortable as well. The small staff was very accommodating and friendly and the breakfasts were the best - would definitely keep you full for many hours. We would definitely recommend this to friends and would return on any future visits. We were able to walk to all the city's main attractions. Thank you so much for a great stay, Doreen!
