    Nice location, 30 min walk or easy bus to all sites. Parking available right outside. Large comfortable rooms in old Georgian House. Friendly helpful owner. Encouraged to take away fruit, croissants, coffee from breakfast table.

    Breakfast could have been better, but adequate within price range. No muesli, or natural yoghurt or cooked breakfast.

    Location great for getting in and out of the city centre, but also close to the ring road for a quick getaway in the car to countryside locations. The house is absolutely beautiful. Good strong Wifi. Comfy bed, and nice view of Arthur's Seat.

    When I arrived I the reaction was a bit chaotic, as if I wasn't expected ("this is a B&B isn't it?" I inquired). The breakfast was very basic, not at all what you expect from a B&B.

    Big room. Very accommodating host. Pleasant, personable hosts.

    No hot water morning that I left. My flat iron got wrecked when I plugged it in with an adapter so don’t what that was al about.

    We stayed in the ground floor room. Very clean place with en-suite toilet and shower. The bed is very comfortable. The host is very kind and they have always tried to be helpful. Overall we have had a lovely experience.
