Sleep before a flight
Overnight stay before flight the next day. This a great place to stay before a flight especially if you have a hire car to return. It’s on a road and on the flight path but it’s perfectly quiet. Amenities are good and parking is on site. The hosts are friendly and breakfast was nice.

Nice accommodation at a good price.
Nice accommodation at a good price. It may be useful to mention the Guesthouse does not have a kitchen and does not serve breakfasts, but plenty of options/restaurants closeby.

This place had all we needed as a base for exploring Edinburgh for a few days. Good views of the mountains from front rooms. Booked the quadruple which provided ample space. Check in was easy despite arriving on an early flight. Staff kindly stored our bags and took them to our room when ready. Multiple bus connections outside were the highlight. 10mins to city centre. 35 mins to Rosslyn Chapel. Lots of bars restaurants close by. Wifi connection good then not ( on top floor). Would stay again.

The hotel is a fairly close walk to most sights in Edinburgh. It had all the basics, but we had issues with internet from day one. Our room had very poor connectivity--we were all constantly losing our connections, which can make for an unpleasant experience if you have work to do while one vacation.

Nice location
Good place to stay, near to Edinburgh City, lots of places to see near the hotel. Spacious room, with free parking though it’s a bit hard to park but helpful.Easy checked in and checked out. The shower is not great though but we’re happy with our stay, will recommend to our friends to stay here.
