Just returned from a four day stay in this property, which is in a good location close to trams for an easy journey into Edinburgh for sight seeing. The room was very clean and had everything you needed including dressing gowns to use during your stay. Margaret was very friendly and was always there if you needed anything. The towels were changed every day and everything was to a high standard. Would certainly recommend to anyone if you need a convenient base to explore the area as it offers good value for money.

“Great value stay”
Reviewed 6 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I had a great stay with Mags, who is a friendly and helpful host. She provides all sorts of things for guests' use, including toiletries and hairdryer.
I slept well as the bed was comfy and the area is very quiet.
It's easy to get to and from Edinburgh city centre using buses, or the tram from nearby Balgreen.
I'd recommend a stay with Mags at her home.

“Quiet Location for Single Traveler”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

My stay at Mags' went very smooth. The location was a bit outside the city center but the bus stop and tram stop were both within a short walking distance (5-10 minutes). A grocery store is just down the street. The room and bathroom were always clean everyday. I stayed for a week and my towels were changed and I kept receiving delicious British snacks on my table. I didn't really spend much time in the room but it was relaxing and comfortable when I was there. My room did face the sunrise and I was woken up every morning quite early. Mags was very sweet and offered help for any itinerary planning or general information. For those who enjoy a morning walk or run, the Water of Leith is a quarter mile away as well as a few parks relatively nearby. I would definitely stay here again. However, it's worth noting that you may be sharing a bathroom with the guests across the hall and that you're renting a room in Mags' house (although separate). I was unsure of these things before I arrived. But overall, a great place to stay!
