Upon arriving I was welcomed by the owners, who are the most friendly people. The rooms are very nice and clean and full of amenities. I was even offered a glass of whisky. Breakfast is made...

They have thought of everything and have put a lot of very useful things in each room. Very handy to centre and lots of good restaurants close by. Playhouse is two minutes walk away....

Stayed two nights. We were more than thrilled to find the room tastefully decorated and very clean! A delicious breakfast was served at private tables in a beautiful breakfast area. Norman and Marion are friendly, helpful hosts. We would definitely stay there again!

Marion and husband went over the top to make us comfortable. The rooms were lovely with more than everything you need. Welcomed with nice hard drinks. The breakfasts were fantastic. Very close to walk into city center. Very accommodating if you need to leave early for a tour. Thank you so much for everything.

We had a very lovely 4 days stay at the B&B. Marion and her husband are welcoming, obliging and caring hosts. The breakfast is delicious. The citycenter is in walking distance. We truly recommend it if you want to explore Edinburgh and it's people.
