Thornfield Guest House
Average but a bit over priced.
Good location if you plan to take the bus. No designated parking. The bed needs new mattress. Plumbing noise can be heard every now and then. I could've had a better room for that price if not for the fringe festival.

It was a place to sleep!!
The location was good just a 15min bus ride from Edinburgh city Centre. This is an older house converted to just rooms. We were in the family room for 5 on the 3rd floor, so this was quite a few stairs but not too bad. Sheets and towels were good and clean. Decor is need of updating at the very least a good clean! There were big dust balls around a couple of the beds, dirt around the baseboards and shower. Paint on the walls and ceilings look like they were done in a hurry!!

Bad experience
No lift in hotel . No ac in room was very hot could not sleep at night with heat . Asked for fan which was useless .no air coming from it . No fridge in room ,had to come 2stairs down to ask few items of food to be kept in room . Reception was bad was lucky to find anyone there . Asked for private bath but it was across the room which was uncomfortable at night .very noisy at night was traffic flowing all night . Will not stay there again .
