Edinburgh Guest house
Lovely guest house and very sizeable rooms. A little dated and dusty but cannot fault the location.

Ok place, no real customer service
The facility was nice but tricky to find parking and there was no one at the location to check me in or out or answer questions. Since I was from abroad I had no service to call anyone. Thankfully I found everything on my own after a bit of trial and error and there was a note left for me on how to get to my key and room.

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.
