    The Guest House has friendly welcoming staff. I had a nice room, well equipped and clean. There was a wide choice at breakfast. It is only a short taxi ride from the centre and, of course, there are many buses, though you can walk there in a few minutes. Restaurants shops and all other services are close by but most important was the welcoming and helpful environment. I could leave my luggage on the day of departure and go to the station later in the day.

    We really liked the location of the hotel, was good and by reach of everything. The breakfast was really good, good value for money. There was a French girl from Paris working there which was extremely nice, helpful and gentle. She helped us choosing which attractions were worth visiting whilst staying in Edinburgh. She was lovely and we had nice chats with her. Really really nice.

    I think that the structure would need some redecoration. A little bit of painting and some new furniture would do. :) The building is really nice and had potential. You can hear everything that a person is doing in the toilet which is not be bet thing at all. Overall though is nice

    Staff were very helpful, food well presented and tasty.

    The staff were very friendly and accommodating

    On both mornings when we went down for breakfast there was in-sufficient tables, one of the mornings we had to sit and eat our breakfast on the sofas at a coffee table. If they removed the sofa's and placed another table, this would be ideal. Also, the condition of our bedroom could do with some work carried out.

    The staff were friendly and helpful. Although the room overlooked the street, I was not so aware of any noise that it disturbed my sleep. The room was clean and I liked the fact I could make myself a cup of tea at any time. Breakfast was good. For the first time I sampled haggis at breakfast time! I would certainly recommend the hotel and would stay there if and when I'm next in Edinburgh.

    There was nothing I disliked about the place.

    Hotel was nice. It had a friendly vibe that made me feel welcome. we weren't in the hotel much, basically just to sleep (we never got up in time for breakfast). It was close enough to the centre so that we could walk (around 10minutes to get to princes street) and there are some cool little shops and cinema-houses on the way. But it also meant we were never woken up by partygo-ers during the night. Overall; we liked the hotel and would stay again+recomend to others on a similar budget.

    struggled to sleep first night and not much better second night, although i couldn't complain about the mattress being too uncomfortable. Though i think it was old and in need of replacing-didnt seem to support me very much. a problem for those that value a good nights sleep. apart from that, everything was spot on.

    I liked the fact that it was close to central edinburgh. I also liked the staff, very friendly.

    The beds were not confortable, and the room was too small for the price I paid.

  • Family with children

    We arrived several hours before we could get into our room. We were allowed to leave our bags at the hotel so we could wander around Edinburgh. The hotel was about a 15 minute walk from the castle. We found the road quiet . Our room had 3 single beds and was a suitable size for 3 adults. The staff were friendly and cooked a lovely breakfast each morning.
