Friendly clean cheap getaway
This was a last minute trip to the Fringe so was very limited in choice. Rate was reasonable compared to other choices. We had a very comfortable bed and clean and pleasant room with a private bathroom across the hallway which was not ideal but was reflected in the price and was made clear at time of booking. Staff very friendly. Parking is on the street and there seemed ample spaces. 20 min walk to Edinburgh but loads of buses also. Recommend if you want a cheap getaway.

very noisy in the morning, but great hotel.
fantastic area and very close to local shops and attractions.the room was spacious enough and very clean. the bed was comfy but could do with an extra pillow.but the only problem was in the morning the walls are very thin and you can hear everything. the shower the toilet and talking in the corridor as the bed is right next to the door. i think because its a couples many that stay we where lucky that there was no noise on a night time. but for the price and how close it is we would stay again but maybes choose a different room.

Good 6.0
We were room 8 in basement, room really small, not a proper double bed but clean, problem was bathroom was across the landing and although only for us was not great during the night. We didn't know this was the case. Location is good for playhouse and room was warm and clean. Suppose for money we paid it was ok but we won't return.

Excellent value for money
It is not very fancy but for the money in Edinburgh it is amazing value. Friendly no hassle check in, i had a small but comfortable en suite room. The location is fantastic, 15-20 mins walk into the very centre of Edinburgh and free parking outside the B and B. If you want high end luxury this isn't right for you but if you want excellent value for money and easy hassle free stay in a central location this is the business.

Good 6.0
Good location but dated very Small rooms
Lovely receptionist and good location however the room and hotel was very small and stuffy, tiny rooms and bathroom. Hotel was very hot with no fans or reception cover at night. Hotel was also very noisy early in the morning so didn't get any sleep. Bathroom was modern but a bit scruffy with scuffs in the shower and on tiles.
