I liked the hotel spent one night there, Fiona and Freddie were very welcoming, my room was extremely comfortable and clean the bathroom and shower very good, the breakfast was excellent plenty of choice. The hotel is situated in a quiet location which I appreciated I would stay again if visiting Edinburgh.

Great location.
The location is important in Edinburgh and the parking is always a bonus. This place has both and an outstanding breakfast.

Very Good 8.0
Great location for an overnight stay
Great location, parking was a plus feature as we didn’t want to drive within the city. Bedroom & bathroom were a bit too small but ok for one night. Carpet on stairs didn’t look great, the property could benefit of changing it for a darker colour.

Wonderful stay in a perfect location to see the Castle and Royal Mile.
Ron, ca1 night trip
Good 6.0
Parking was free but the cars needed to be stacked in like in a driveway. The manager said they’d just enter my room, take the keys, and move my rental. I declined.

Great location
Great place. Freddie's breakfasts are awesome. Loved hearing him singing the oldies in the kitchen everyday! Lots of stairs so not for everyone. Only complaint would be that they need new mattresses. is a small thing, still a great place to stay. Walking distance to some great restaurants
William, ca3 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Great area but rooms a bit tired.
Great area, very friendly hosts and a truly delicious breakfast, but the rooms (and bathrooms) could definitely use some updating at this price point and were not as spic-and-span as I’d expected after reading other reviews before booking.
