Little Gem Close to everything.
Close to the city, half an hour walk to Royal Mile, nice clean rooms and the shared bathroom I used. Super markets walking distance, bus stop across the road. The staff were very friendly and helpful, there is a customer car park at the rear, and breakfasts are offered as well, thoroughly recommend staying there.

Adetola, gb3 night trip
Poor 2.0
Rooms very very small, sheets a little bit worn and certainly not white cotton sheets like you might find in a premier Inn or similar, staff friendly enough but no...not for much so we didn't stay, after paying £175 for two nights I spent a further £230 to stay somewhere else, don't bother
