  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The property was recently renovated. By far, the largest room we've had since our stay in Europe. Very clean and comfortable bedding. Within walking distance to shops, pubs, the Castle and Royal Mile

Our room was very clean and spacious and the staff were helpful at this guesthouse. They are in the process of painting and decorating some of their communal areas which didn't affect the service.. Lovely fresh breakfast. Quietish, you are aware of others coming and going. We were at the top of the house lots of stairs which for some people may be difficult. Good centrsl location for shops, sightseeing and socialising. Don't expect to see the Castle from inside the hotel unless you stick your head out of a window at the front oh the house😆 I would consider staying again dependent on the price.
