Nice B&B and friendly
Room warm and confortable but we stayed in Edinburgh on a very cold weekend and the bathroom was uncomfortably cold. Other than that faultless. Xia and Ivy were very attentive. - Thanks -Xie xie :)

OK B and B.
Old fashioned B and B on the bus route into central Edinburgh. Don't expect parking- it's less than 'limited'.
