“OK B&B”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2008

This was the oddest room we've ever stayed in in any hotel or b&b.

The room was on the large side, but it was the toilet and bathroom facilities that really were the oddity for us.

The toilet was encased in a small enclosure with barely enough room to get in.

The sink was on the wall inside the bedroom area. The shower was in the bedroom area as well, encased in a glass shower enclosure. We had never seen anything like this. It was truly an add on to a room without any bathroom facilities other than the sink.

It also had a fireplace in the room, which we found a nice touch.
The owners were very nice and friendly, but the room was a little strange. We also found that we couldn't move our car once we parked, otherwise we would have had to park on a very busy bus route street. We arrived just before dinner, and the owner suggested the pub a short distance away, so we walked. The b&b is down the street from a college/university and when we got to the pub around 7:15PM, they told us they were not taking anymore dinner orders because the kitchen was behind. So we walked back to the b&b, since there wasn't any other restaurant close enough. We ended up with a few biscuits we had with us and a cup of tea.

What the room lacked in quaintness, it made up in size. Breakfast was decent. When you say you prefer an ensuite room, this one really gave it to you.

This is a great guest house, marvellous breakfast, comfortable rooms and in a great location for visiting Edinburgh. Bus stop right outside the door and plenty of information about tours etc.
