Positive Reviews


Clean and warm rooms

Although several guests weren't too impressed by the beds, the general consensus among reviews of this property is that the rooms and clean and warm.

Friendly host

Delicious breakfast

Previous guests are complimentary about the breakfast, commenting favourably on everything from the standard of the food to the comfortable conservatory in which the meal is served. A satisfying start to the day is seemingly on the cards here.

Negative Reviews


A bit tired looking

Although there is little to suggest that you won't find this property clean and comfortable, a few guests describe it as tired looking. A lick of paint might improve matters although this shouldn't affect your overall enjoyment.


Traffic noise is a possibility

Guests have mixed opinions about whether this B&B is quiet. It's certainly set back enough from the city centre to allows some guests to leave their window open, but others mention traffic noise. It probably depends on whether you are a light sleeper.


Some rooms share a bathroom

Sharing a bathroom is not for everyone and one guest did find that another made a mess and did not clear up. However, this was during the middle of the night and the facilities are otherwise found to be clean. Book early to secure an en-suite room, especially during popular events such as the Fringe Festival.
