      The lady is very kind. I do appreciate that she allowed early checkin because i was not feeling well. I love there bedding. Beds are big enough and cozy. The location is great! Within walking distance to a bunch of supermarkets, grocers' and restaurants. Also quite close to calton hill and easy to walk to the railway station and the center.

      Good location and rooms but horrible check-out”

      Hotel location is pretty good and walkable to city center (20mins). Many food and grocery options nearby. Room was cozy and comfortable with sufficient essentials. Parking is free along the road. Check-in was swift and the friendly elderly lady told us check-out was at 10am. We told her we will check out at 6-6.30am and asked if the reception would be opened. She said reception will be closed and to leave the room door unlocked with the keys in the keyhole in the door inside the room. Confirmed with her twice and she said to do so. Upon check-our at 6am, we did as instructed. When we arrived the ground floor, a young lady came out of reception and asked for the keys. We told her it was in the room. And she started lecturing us on how a reception works. Informed her that we were instructed by the other lady to do so but out of kindness, my partner went back up to the 2nd floor to retrieve the keys for her. However, when she found out the room was not locked, she became nasty about how a guest house works. When we were walking out the door, she started grumbling in her language and threw a small fit. Totally unprofessional and rude.

      We spend most of the day out in town. Great value for money. Easy excess to buses and food during the day. a little quiet on the main street at night. Walking distance to the bus station.

      Room 1”

      This guest house was clean and welcoming but it was a bit far from the royal mile, and you need the app or correct change to catch the bus. Also we stayed in room 1 and you can hear all of the noises from people in the kitchen, coming down stairs and other bathrooms. I would not stay here again.

      Handy for theatre”

      Good location for the theatre, we had room with private bathroom across the corridor (don't lock the bathroom door with key from the inside). Would have been nice to have a sachet of biscuits with the kettle and tea making facilities but other than that can't fault it. Crazy patterns going on in the bedroom but comfy beds and friendly staff.

      Pay to leave luggage & no interest in solving no internet”

      Friendly staff and nice room. But no internet. Reaction was; it didn't work yesterday but does now. No, it didn't (for the full time we were there). Worse was having to pay to leave a bag for two hours. That's just not hospitable. Case of great household staff but perhaps not well-run. Not a bad place.

      Best place to stay in Edinburgh”

      I'm from Malaysia, traveling with my little brother for university interview. This is the best place that I stayed during my entire trip in UK. Very cute and beautifully decorated house. The room is very cosy, warm and homely. It feels very much like home, more than a hotel. You can park in front of the guesthouse for free if you have a rented car. Just 5mins walk to the Main Street where there is a Starbucks, Sainsbury local there and there is a really nice cafe opposite the road called Word of Mouth cafe that serve really good breakfast and coffee. It is 10mins away from the bus stop where you can catch the bus to the city center which is not far away. I would definitely stay here again if I'm coming back to Edinburgh.
