Beautiful Place and the Kindest Hosts

This place is just lovely and possibly the best place I've stayed at when I am traveling. Beautiful room with its own entrance, hallway, ensuite bathroom and a big and beautifully furnished bedroom. Super comfortable beds too. The breakfast is just super tasty, and my sister loves the granola especially. The hosts Katrina and Fergus are super kind, welcoming and helpful. They made us feel like friends visiting their family - and even offered us a ride to the train station when we left! The location is great too. A quiet area near city centre, and walkable to major attractions. I would definitely stay at this place and visit the family again the next time I am in Edinburgh.
