Nice hotel/staff nicePosted May 2, 2014
Pros: staff was helpful
Cons: could use a little freshening up - new paint, flooring
Location: not too far from park in Edinburgh, the castle, downtown although a little confusing to make your way around at first.
Bed & breakfast was clean - a little further from downtown Edinburgh than expected. Nice, clean room in an older building. Staff was helpful with map & directions and any issues that came up.

Old facilities and uncaring personnelPosted Oct 27, 2013
I stayed there for 3 days. The check in is at 14.00' even though the check out has to be by 11.00'. The room was very old, gloomy and misty. Even though it looked cleaned, if you saw carefully the towels and the bed covers were with spots and the ceiling and curtain rail were full of spider webs. The second day, the cleaner came in to tidy up but left the room unlocked. She misplaced things that I had left on the nightstand having as a result things to be forgotten in the room. After I left I asked them to check and call me back and they didn't even bother to do so. Straight away they claimed that the room was empty without even consulting with their cleaners. After my continuous insistence they said they will look into it but of course I never heard of them since. Tried to contact them again but they claim that they didn't have the time to check. Even though the place is in a quite central location it definitely doesn't worth it.

AdequatePosted Oct 25, 2013
Pros: proximity to the city (Tolcross)
Cons: quite a lot but that would up the price.
Location: 10 minute walk to the Grassmarket and castle, 20 minute walk to Princes Street. Lots of buses from the end of the road.
at £40 p.n. this was perfectly adequate but not someplace to consider for a long stay. My room was OK if dim, the bed had a footboard, which I can't stand because I am tall and need my feet out of the end (very much a personal fact). Furnished with second hand furniture (not a complaint just a comment). Toilet was cramped (especially for me 6'4" and 17st) and the loo seat was detached, the shower took about 5 minutes to reach a comfortable warmth. Staff were friendly on reception (at the Braveheart, some 70 yards along the road); breakfast was good (at the Braveheart) with friendly helpful staff. Adequate for a one nighter and close enough to the city.

Basic, as expectedPosted Oct 3, 2013
Pros: Price and location
Cons: Cleanliness, new sheets, fix the heater so guests can turn it off if/when needed
Location: Good bakery right down the lane on the main road, easy to catch buses or walk up to Cowgate and the Grassmarket
This is a basic bed and breakfast. The room could have been cleaner and we couldn't turn off the heater. But the beds were comfortable enough and the location was good for wandering around the city. Edinburgh is an incredibly easy city to get around so the location worked well and the price was good for what we received.

Not very close to any known placePosted Oct 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
When you offer your hotel as guest house, we in America do not know that it is an inconvenient bread and breakfast, housed 2 blocks away from the house that offers breakfast. Pretty inconvenient !!!!!!!
