5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Highly recommend....
We stayed here for an overnight stay prior to a hospital appointment. It was excellent in all aspects. The room was spotless, fresh and inviting. It was ideally situated, easy to find and parking available. Comfortable bed and lovely crisp bedding all added to the experience. We had a delicious breakfast....I would highly recommend and we will certainly be back.

Great little find
What a lovely little find and with a bus service to Edinburgh centre right outside the front door. Very very comfy bed , slept better than i had in weeks. Lovely couple that run the B&B . At first i thought the bathroom was very small but considering the size of the property i thought it was great use of a small space. Didnt have breakfast as i was out early both days. Highly recommend and if i have to come back to the city i may just book again.

Absolutely lovely little guest house. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Owner was very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was also excellent with lots of choice of good quality items. Thank you.
