Unsere Zimmer war ohne Dusche und WC

Posted 01-Jun-2015
Unser Zimmer war ohne Dusche und WC und davon haben wir keine Ahnung gehabt (bei der Buchung war das nicht ersichtlich)! Als wir nach ein Zimmer mit Dusche und WC gefragt haben, hat geheißen wir müssen 30 Pfund pro Nacht mehr zahlen!! Wir habe 4-Nächte übernachtet und kein einziges Mal wurde die Bettwäsche gewechselt!

Well worth it

Even though it's not directly in the city center (15 min walk or £5 taxi), and on a some what busy street, it is a great little place that is clean, with decent service and breakfast. My room was not en suite, but i think others were, and it was not a deal breaker for me, by any means. If (when) I come back, I would most likely stay hear again.

Perfect hotel for the intro to Scotland.

Posted 15-Mar-2015 on Hotels
This was our first stay in Scotland while we were spending a couple days in Edinburgh. The hotel was about a 15 minute walk from the edge of town but since we love hiking and the outdoors, it wasn't an issue for us. Easy parking access in front and we were immediately greeted and shown to our room. It was a great room and very quiet. We enjoyed the buffet style breakfast and found it easy to hop downstairs for breakfast and then be on our way. We never once took the car anywhere the 2 days we were there, opting to walk around town instead. If you enjoy walking, you can certainly do a good amount of it in Edinburgh.

Lovely stay in Edinburgh :)

Posted 22-Feb-2015 on Hotels
My friend and I stayed at Ben Doran for 2 nights in February 2015. It's fairly close to the main attractions(Arthur's seat, Edinburgh castle, Holyrood Palace all about 20min walk away). Pros: - Free parking - Strong Wi Fi - Clean rooms - We got upgraded to an ensuite for free ^_^ - Lovely staff - Several buses stop right outside so you can get around easily Cons: - The room was quite cold

Great value for money

Posted 22-Feb-2015 on Hotels
I found The Ben Doran Guest House to be fantastic value for money. The Room: Vary spacious, clean and warm. The Bed: High thread count sheets. Clean. Absolutely massive. The bathroom: Very clean. Shower was hot and powerful. However it was slightly small for me to use comfortably. (6ft 4) The Breakfast: The host always greeted us with a smile and the food/ drinks were presented very well and tasted good too. The location: 1.5miles from the main city attractions/ restaurants etc. We drove into the city and found it was expensive to park. Taxi's were double the normal cost I was used to for traveling the same distance in Manchester. In the room you are given information about the bus and tram times/ routes which I would advise you to use. Parking: Due to the limited parking there was the odd occasion that I would have to get another guest to move their car so I could get mine out. The host was very helpful and called the other guests room so it wasn't mush of an issue. Parking was free too.
