Happy to be there
I liked staff and location first and foremost. Sweet little room perfectly adequate for one person. Coffee was Good but not excellent and I would have appreciate an espresso at the end of my breakfast. I did not like the pillows, too many and all puffy but no substance. Breakfast was good but could not understand stale croissants from the day before! If someone understands breakfast surely they understand serving baby croissants from the day before is bad!

Highly recommend. Spotlessly clean, comfortable, quality brekky, helpful, polite and friendly staff. Ensuite small, but adequate. Bed and pillows comfortable. Can make cuppa in breakfast room at any time, as well as in your room. Very short walk from airport tram or bus. Would stay again. Thank you for a great start to our Scotland holiday.

Very nice guest house
A beautiful old style guest house. Fully renovated. The rooms are spacious and clean. No lift. Breakfast is nice. The staff is super kind. The location is about 10 min away from the city center and 5 min from the train station and bus stop. A place worth staying at.

Happy to be back in Scotland
Comfortable, clean and quiet room with lovely views . Good quality Scottish breakfast, and continental offering too. Centrally located to the west end and Haymarket train station.

Elegant Edinburgh townhouse
The hotel is centrally located and near buses, tram, and taxis. The elegant old building has been tastefully updated but maintains its historical look. Breakfast in the dining room includes a variety of cold and hot foods that can be eaten on the run or savored at the table. The only negatives for some is that there is no lift to upper floors and wifi coverwge is spotty.
