    Super guest house on the south side of Edinburgh
    Fabulous guest house within easy walking distance of the City Centre. Well connected to bus routes too, and close to most of the Fringe venues. Maggie and Kate were great hosts, with Maggie in particular giving loads of advice on travel and dining options. The single room is a little on the small side but comfortable, bright and clean. I hadn't realised the bathroom was not ensuite but it is very close to the bedroom and not a major inconvenience. Breakfast was amazing!

    Totally recommended
    The location of the accommodation is brilliant, not too far away from the city centre, in a quiet location, with a lovely view towards Arthur’s Seat and plenty of shops and pubs near by.
