My sister Sandra and I stayed for four nights at the end of August 2014. The owners are both absolutely lovely - nothing is too much trouble. Comfortable, clean rooms and a lovely breakfast. Just a short walk to the castle and Princes Street. Would most definitely stay again!

Stayed here during the Fringe! Recieved a decent rate and stayed in a newly renovated room along with our own newly renovated bathroom! Close to everything and Jeanette was very accommodating. A cozy and terrific stay.

I stayed for 3 nights in total. I initially stayed in room 4 (twin) which although is awaiting refurbishment was very clean and met with our approval. The en-suite bathroom for this room is quite large, which makes a change from most B&B's I have stayed in. I moved to room 5 (double) for one night due my partner arriving...
