Very reasonably priced, clean and welcoming hotel guest house. The location is just a short bus/taxi ride from the royal mile, or a 15-20minute walk. I was very impressed with the hotel and will definitely be using it again on future trips to Edinburgh.

I was charged 129 poundes and across st or several other places I looked they were charging only 70 pounds, first day I oredered breakfast scottish style, amount of scrambles egg was two table spoon full. I think I should be refunded money, ofcourse he gave me 20 pounds for failuar of hot water, I went by four stars but I think I should have saved money and gone to three stars, It was outrageous price, and may be they have poor rating system
