Fair 4.0
Room very small, one bathroom between whole load of rooms, towels weren’t changed, poky room, needs a good clean, single room has a low ceiling, I’m tall and is completely impractical. Didn’t try the continental breakfast. Guest room doors banging etc was commonplace, not a comfy experience, better places around for the same tariff.

A guesthouse with character and wonderful hosts
An extremely clean and comfortable guesthouse with exceptional hosts who went out of their way to ensure l had everything l needed. They arranged taxis for me and even ensured l had breakfast when l woke up late one morning and missed the scheduled breakfast time. It's a bit of a walk from Princes Street (35 min or so) but that wasn't a big deal for me. Would highly recommend.

Good 6.0
Very polite staff but no good for a business trip as I had to wait until 08.30 for breakfast so laid on my bed waiting. Really not ideal when I need to be on the road and in meetings. Everyone piled in at 08.30 for breakfast so not really practical to be honest. Also, breakfast was not clear. It didn’t state continental of full breakfast so would've been nice to know. Although pleasant and clean, the bed was like sleeping on a pillow so was way too soft for my liking but each to their own I suppose. I think it was ok for the price but wouldn’t stay again.

Very Good 8.0
Good option
The bathroom was spotless, bed comfortable and room adequate. Carpet was older and stained so I was really unable to judge how clean it really was (which isn’t unusual). The only complaint I would have is this particular room had a strange odor which they tried to mask with a plug in air scent that I had to unplug because it gave us a headache. Our friends room did not have the odor. We did not request another room, but my guess would be they would have switched it if asked and able. Parking was a challenge especially after 5 pm so try to get there before people get off work. Streets will still be crowded, but you’ll have a better shot at getting a spot close. People were friendly and accommodating and area was close to restaurants and attractions. The continental breakfast was lovely with plenty of options.
