Negative Reviews


Some rooms may be too small for families.

Families taking a vacation to Edinburgh will enjoy the great budget accommodation on offer but may find some of the rooms too small. Plan on booking adjoining rooms if the larger rooms are taken.


Not all rooms are en-suite.

Of the eleven rooms on offer, only nine of them feature en-suite bathroom facilities. The two smallest rooms share a private bathroom with features a very small shower which may not be to everyone’s liking.


Room décor is very dated.

The room décor in all of the rooms is very old and has clearly not been updated for quite some time. Those specifically looking for budget accommodation and bare basics will still find this suitable as the location is very favourable.
