What a lovely stay - Gareth is a friendly and accommodating host who makes the most wonderful breakfasts! The rooms are comfortable and quiet, despite being close to central Edinburgh. If booking through Tripadvisor I would recommend emailing beforehand to confirm, as they lost my booking, but Gareth bent over backwards to help me.
