Clean service nice considering Covid-19 well done

Poor 2.0
Disgusting! A strong smell of sewage emanates from the fan when the toilet light is activated in the bedroom. A horrific, constant damp fug pervades the atmosphere in the room. The worst place I’ve ever stayed in my life. It’s not fit for purpose, it’s outdated, it’s damp, unkempt, I was itching constantly from lying in the bed, while the sewage faecal smell made me nauseous and feel most unwell.

Inexpensive, clean, no frills place to stay.
Small room and en suite but clean, comfortable, welcoming and inexpensive. Needed more pillows, no doubt if you ask they would be available, other than that it was perfect for a nights stay and would use again quite happily.

Short stay in Edinburgh
The bed was very comfortable and the room very clean/in good condition. In a good location relative to the city centre - about a 15-20 minute walk from Princes Street. No breakfast provided but options can be found nearby. It was ideal for what we wanted.

There no any sign of office on one of the three close and locked doors. There is no lobby to connect free wifi but paid wifi was too weak to get any information.

Guest house advertised as an hotel. Further from town than advertised but clean.
Hugh, gb1 night business trip
Good 6.0
Ok for a couple of nights
Location is good as it's only 1 mile away from the station. The main issue I had was the door slamming of other rooms and the front door wakes you up or keeps you up... thankfully we we're out most of the time. The toilet seat had bolts missing on one of the hinges. Bed was comfy enough.
