Exceptional 10.0
The owner of the guest house were absolutely kind and helpful. I was mistaken in booking stay in relazione with the teturn fly, and they give me a free Bird for one night. Breakfast was exellent. The bus to town centre 150 meter far.

Repeat Stay at Charming, Warm Guest House
This was my second time staying with Dorstan, and I can confidently say that I'll be back! The staff here is friendly, welcoming, warm, and so immensely helpful. Breakfast is delicious, the rooms are comfortable, and the street is so pleasantly quiet while still being just a short bus ride away from Edinburgh's main attractions. Highly recommend.
Mary, us4 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
The best assets of this guest house is its staff, great breakfast and price. The place is clean but a bit outdated. Like a previous reviewer, I had a very small room (with a bathroom) with very little space to move around.
Isgouhi, us5 night trip
Very Good 8.0
On the whole it was a pleasant stay. The hosts were friendly and helpful when asked. One minor complaint, they should be a night light in the bathroom, face towels, and something lighter to use for sleeping other than the comforter like a top sheet.
Andrea, us4 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Lovely quiet B&B with fantastic breakfast!
Comfortable single room with ensuite toilet and shower. Very quiet. Owners are very friendly and efficent; breakfast was really great and freshly prepared. You mark your selection the night before. (hot and cold options availble) The city centre is around a 10 minute bus ride from the stop 2 mins away or around 30 mins if you don't mind walking. If you fancy a swim, drop by the nearby 50m commonwealth pool which is awsome! Lovely stay, thanks so much!
