“Friendly Owner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2008

It is a pleasant place to stay just out of the CBD. The Owner is friendly and helpful. We stayed for a couple of days in a room (and bathroom) of adequate size. The second time was in a larger room on the first floor that was quite nice. The full English breakfast was great. There is a bus stop nearby for trips into the city and there is some on-street car parking. There is free internet access in the breakfast room - there is no lounge room. I would stay there again.

  • Liked — Friendly owner
  • Disliked — Slightly grumpy owner's assistant

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2007

Unlike the other reviewer, we found this B&B to be very reasonable in price and quite comfortable. A nice place for a quieter stay in Edinburgh; the distance from the city centre seemed daunting but we quickly got the hang of the cheap buses. The owner was friendly and accommodating. Our only suggestion would be a slightly faster internet connection! We would definitely consider staying here again.

  • Liked — good value for money
  • Disliked — a bit far from the centre

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2007

This is a nightmare place to stay. The rooms are tiny. I had no room to unpack my suitcase. The bed clothes are ancient, and the rooms could all do with a major decoration. The wallpaper was hanging off. Breakfast was just as bad. The room was cramped, and breakfast was not nice at all. We complained to the owner who gave us a small discount, but overall we were very dissatisfied. I would advise everyone not to go near this place.
