          Morag couldn't be more helpful, from looking up bus numbers and times to supplying mountains of food and coffee at breakfast. Ideal location as only 5 mins to tram for airport, 2 mins to shops and loads of pubs and restaurants.

          Tiny room, in a rather filthy state. Mattress in poor condition. The landlady threatened to kick me out when I bitterly complained and demanded a decent room for the money I paid (£40). AVOID this "centrally located" establishment.More

          Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,

          with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
