Exceptional 10,0
Homely, friendly and comfortable stay
The place is amazing for staying right in the centre of Edinburgh. With the public transport a few yards away, one can reach anywhere within minutes. The hostess is very friendly and does everything to make your stay not just comfortable but memorable as well.

Everything we needed for a last minute overnight family trip

Good 6,0
Good location - 20 minute walk into central Edinburgh, and 20 minutes to central Leith. Check-in was quick and easy, and the room was nice enough. Clean and modern bathroom fittings. Only major problem was with the WiFi - the lady on the front desk claimed that the whole building was wired up with WiFi, yet the signal in my room (Room 2) was barely strong enough to load a basic webpage. Signal might be better in other areas of the house/

Not a bad hotel
Not a bad hotel, room needed some TLC and smelt a bit weird. Bed comfy but doors banging until the early hours.

Poor 2,0
Rude unreasonable owner
Rude owner asked an unreasonable amount to leave a flight bag for one hour. All the younger staff were bright helpful welcoming and efficient she should learn from them.
