Me and my friend booked a last minute deal to stay for a night. £69 wasn't bad between the both of us but I wish we had forked out more money to stay somewhere else! First thing I had noticed was that when we checked in at 5pm, there was still toast sitting on the dining tables from the morning....

This is possibly the worst, the very worst, guest house I have ever booked. It was filthy. Pubic hair in the shower. A stain on the bedding which could have been blood but was perhaps make up. Lamps did not work. The carpet was filthy. The bed was apparently pensioned off from a prison cell. On our arrival, the owner...

This is not the best B&B we have stayed at by any stretch of the imagination.it is in need of some updating,everything looks old and tired.The people who own these type of establishments need to think about what would they like in accommodation, and give us the traveller the same standard as they would like.

Rang up quoted £99 but then seen on Triavgo website £45 so called back and mention website and he honoured the offer online. Room 1 was large, clean and very nice shower room. Was very close to centre of Edinburgh and had lots of shops directly opposite & free parking onsite. I would stay here again any day.

We booked this guest house 3 days before arriving, granted we left it a little late but the rooms looked OK and the facilities we wanted were there - en-suite, tea/coffee in room & B&B. We arrived to be told that our bathroom, was not in our room but across the corridor, a little random and annoying but we thought...
