“Great little place pact with everything you need”
Reviewed 8 July 2011 for a stay in May 2011

This place was our little home for a week whilst visiting a relative in the borders while we were in the UK from our real home in Australia.
Anne - the owner who lives in the adjacent house was friendly, helpfull and has put a great deal of thought into what is provided in the accomodation.
The place is not luxurious but everything is in good condition, works well and makes life while away from home easier.
The location is good, parking a little challenging, very clean and tidy with a lot of rooms, but all are compact.
Would recommend this place if you want a compact but feature packed home away from home.

“Really welcoming and comfortable stay”
Reviewed 25 May 2011 for a stay in May 2011

We stayed because I entered Edinburgh marathon. Lovely place to stay, comfortable clean and everything you could wish for. Easy access to Edinburgh centre by foot (35 mins) bus or taxi. Surrounding area has lovely restaurants, bars and a great takeaway. Everyone was really kind and thoughtful. Would highly recommend Come Ben the Hoose for any trip to Edinburgh.

“An Ideal holiday home.”
Reviewed 23 May 2011 for a stay in May 2011

This house is all that the description states.A lovely warm welcome on arrival was much appreciated.
The lovely beach at Porobello is not far.A walk into the city centre is fine for the more energetic but the area is served by regular buses.
A great place to stay away from the hustle and bustle but within easy reach of restaurants etc.
Overall a most enjoyable stay and would certainly go back.
Excellent value for money.
