Lovely little place
A lovely family-run guest house with comfy rooms and all the amenities. We particularly appreciated the breakfast selection and how friendly our hosts were! Great location too, in the heart of Edinburgh. We couldn't have asked for better for the low price

A great find
Lovely guest house from the minute I arrived till the moment I left all was well. Nothing was too much trouble, the single room I was in had a quiet outlook over the back garden, a good powerful shower and the bed was fine ( queen size ? ) Great transport links into town with a bus stop only 50 yards away and regular service into old and new parts of town. The walk back to the station on Only took a very gentle 30 minutes.

Walking distance from Edinburgh City Center
Blossom was just what I was looking for, a place within walking distance of the city center and private parking, for a reasonable rate. My room was cozy, well-organized and clean, with a nice view outside the window. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Since I had to leave very early on my day of departure, my hostess left a bag of breakfast food outside my door.
