She even went as far as booking trips for us and packing us breakfasts on the days we left early. Nothing was ever too much of...

A fabulous little guest house in a perfect location for the city centre and Arthur's Seat. Room was perfect as was breakfast and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. All information required for a very cosy and comfortable stay in the city was provided and the hospitality was second to none. We will return very soon!

From the moment we rang to arrange a check in time to the wave goodbye from the door, this little guest house was fantastic! Rooms are lovely! Breakfast was great but the lady who was running it when we went (didn't catch her name but she had short blonde hair) was truly a joy and made our visit really! We...

This really is a lovely place to stay. We were greeted at the door like friends and nothing was too much trouble. Our hostess made us feel so relaxed and 'at home'. The whole house was spotlessly clean and the ample breakfast was cooked perfectly. When we asked about buses into the city she even checked on the Internet to...

Stayed at this lovely guest house on 18/11/16. Nothing too much trouble for the owners. Lovely greeting on arrival and a fond farewell on leaving. Room very clean, spacious and fit for purpose. Lovely comfortable beds and warm room. Excellent full Scottish breakfast in the morning with a friendly mix of foreign visitors who also seemed pleased with their choice...

Very friendly staff, very clean and fantastic breakfast. The bed was a bit on the hard side, but with a fantastic breakfast waiting every morning, we didn't mind. The bathroom was clean and fresh. I loved that you could save your towels for the next day.

The hosts are superb and the hostess in particular is chatty and a sweetheart! The hotel is located a couple of miles from the famous Royal Mile but is very conveniently connected through a 5 minute bus trip. The place in itself has only got a couple of rooms, but the warmth of the hosts makes it a large place...

Christina was so helpful when phoning to book, checking in and checking out. The guest house was spotless clean, good sized room, nice linen and bed with reasonable breakfast the next day. what more can you possibly want from an overnighter in Edinburgh. Also, this is a good location for those staying longer on business or to explore the city....
