Near University and city center

Posted Sep 29, 2017
Pros: Proximity of University, walking distance to restaurants. Rooms facing garden less noisy.
Location: Couple of good, moderately priced restaurants and pubs nearby, walking distance (30min) to Waverley Station and city center.
Convenient location to railway station, town center and University. Fine for a couple of days, at the time of booking the price (while expensive) was lower than in similar B&B type accommodations.

Nice Hotel, 20 mins walking to Royal mile

Posted Sep 26, 2017
Hotel was clean and tidy and with super friendly staff. It's only 20 mins walking to Royal mile and has lots n lots of food options close by. It's only 10 mins driving from Calton hill and Arthur's seat. Would recommend it any time.

Terrible in the sense that the water was cold, sink stopped up most of the time. Shower was great. No real set time for housekeeping and never took towels or emptied trash unless we specified. Wi fi was never working consistently so impossible to locate places. Cover kept slipping off bed because duvet didn't fit properly. Had to sit in lobby to use wi fi. Most of the time no one there to assist and no phone. I would never stay or recommend.

Great B&B for the Price

Posted Aug 6, 2017 on Hotels
Stayed a total of three nights over two different stays. The B&B was exactly what it needed to be. It was clean enough to be comfortable, close enough to city centre to be convenient and the price fit perfectly with our trip budget.

Inexpensive alternative to downtown hotels

Posted Jul 28, 2017
Pros: I liked its proximity, via bus, to the center of Edinburgh, and the comfort of the room.
Cons: There is no one on duty at night. while security did not feel like an issue, if something goes wrong in the room, there is nobody to deal with it.
Location: The location was a quiet neighborhood right outside the city, but, as I said, several bus lines run through it and it is no more than a ten -minute ri
Thrum's Hotel proved to be a great little hotel just outside the noise and energy of the city, but only a short and direct bus ride away from the Royal Mile. It's a small place, with only a handful of rooms, but the rooms are a decent size and the hotel as a whole is a comfortable place to stay.Breakfast is not included, but its a reasonable enough add-on.

The room was not set up for a family room as it was booked. Four single beds were crammed into a very small room. Internet was slow. Free parking was a bonus though.

Good stay, cheap and cheerful

Posted Jun 7, 2017 on Hotels
Great price for the hotel location, 5 min bus or 20 min walk to centre. Staff are very friendly, nice and quiet and good sized rooms, the bathroom was adequate. Plus good size parking round the back of the hotel. Can't comment on breakfast as we didn't eat but there are nice places locally.

Average - but convenient

Posted May 29, 2017 on Hotels
Location was great and hotel is located close to city centre. Hotel itself was dated. Staff very nice and friendly. Common areas had character and charm but rooms need modernisation. Cleanliness was below average with cobwebs and dust throughout the room. Curtains poorly fitted and let in a lot of light! Free parking at rear was a plus.
