Nice quiet location within short walk of main town

Posted 20-Feb-2017
Pros: Lovely communal spaces with period features and large high ceilings
Cons: Better design in rooms for women wishing to style hair no dressing table with mirror near socket just not very practical
Location: La Piazzza in princess street and rendezvous Chinese in Queensferry street both a short walk and good food at reasonable price.
Beautiful period property with many retained features. Stayed in petit double and other than lack of appropriately placed mirror for doing my hair it was perfect for our requirement. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would both recommend and stay again.

Nice hotel with a good location

Posted 18-Feb-2017
The decor of this hotel is beautiful, inside and out. The breakfast area has lovely views and it's nice to see that a lot of the old features have been kept as they are. Everywhere is also very clean. The library is also a nice touch although it has an extremely eclectic collection of books! The location of the hotel is also excellent being only a ten minute walk from Princes Street. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly but not too overbearing like in some hotels we've been to. They had lots of recommendations of things to do and places to eat. There were also a lot of extras with the B+B. For example, a coffee machine, tea, fresh bottled water and biscuits available 24 hours from the library area. However are a few issues became clear as we spent more time at the hotel. The bed itself is actually two single beds put together and so you can feel the seam down the centre. The shower/bath is very difficult to use! It takes a while to get the temperature right and even then it doesn't stay consistent. Our final issue is the breakfast. We found the eggs to be over cooked and bacon to be leathery. The haggis was a nice touch to the breakfast but it was cold, as were other elements of the breakfast while some were lukewarm and some very hot. In fact one day we decided not to have breakfast at the hotel at all and went to a cafe in Haymarket.

Schönes Hotel für einen Kurztrip

Posted 06-Feb-2017
Pros: Freundlichkeit der Mitarbeiter, die kleine Bibliothek mit der Möglichkeit einen Kaffee zu trinken. Einfach gemütlich. Nähe zur Innenstadt.
Location: Die Innenstadt und die Sehenswürdigkeiten sind gut zu Fuß schnell zu erreichen.
Bei der Ankunft haben wir leider ein Zimmer im Keller (keine Aussicht nach draußen) bekommen, obwohl wir per Mail darum gebeten hatten, gerne auf den oberen Etagen wohnen zu wollen. Eine Nacht mussten wir in Kauf nehmen, aber am nächsten Morgen konnten wir dann das Zimmer wechseln und hatten Aussicht auf das Castle von Edinburgh. Wir waren nur 3 Nöchte dort, haben aber in der kurzen Zeit alles gesehen, was wir uns vorgenommen hatten. Wer nicht gut zu Fuß ist, kann auch alles mit dem Bus machen. Alles kein Problem und nicht teuer.

praktisch gelegen und schön!

Posted 03-Feb-2017
Pros: die Freundlichkeit, Zimmerausblick
Cons: der Bacon beim Frühstück war eigentlich Ham.
Location: Eine Straße unterhalb der Dean Village, 7 minuten zu Fuß zu den Trams und Bussen
3 Nächte , sehr nettes Personal! Sehr hilfsbereit und bekamen sogar extra Frühstück weil wir einmal früh raus mussten. Zimmer sind äußerst gemütlich und vom 4ten Stock hatten wir eine wahnsinnig schöne Aussicht auf das Castle. Die Öffis sind auch binnen 7 minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen und es gibt etliche Gastronomiebetrie in der Nähe. Ich freue mich schon auf mein nächsten Besuch ! =)

A very pleasant stay. Highly recommended.

Posted 30-Jan-2017
Pros: cleanliness.
Cons: The lift.
Location: Close to Dean Village and Prince's Street.
We had a very pleasant stay in a family house converted into a hotel. Very clean with nice breakfast. you can choose from 4 main menus for the breakfast and then you can have tea or coffee and other things as much as you like. In addition tea, coffee and cookies are available free of charge next to the library. The room was very clean and large enough for the 3 of us. Clean shower and bathroom. We could see DEAN VILLAGE from the window. The staff were friendly. 10 minutes walk to Prince's Street. Highly recommended.
