We really enjoyed our B&B experience here and would stay here again. The only thing that would give me pause was our experience with a lady who was responsible for serving breakfast. She was rather rude I thought and our first breakfast was horrible. It did greatly improve the following day. The B&B rooms were good and clean. If not...

I booked this hotel/bed and breakfast through the travel center right outside of the train station in Edinburgh. I typically do not do this, but our visit to Edinburgh was unexpected. I usually like to research on TA before we go and see all the photos, but didn't have this as an option. With that said the overall experience was...

We've been here for 5 nights. Edimburgh is wonderful and this b&b is not so bad. Our room was big and comfortable, the bed is large and the area around is peaceful, not in the city centre but quite near (about 15 minutes by walking). The staff is very friendly and every evening we found our room perfectly cleaned! The...

'Don't be late for breakfast' sounds like the title of an Edinburgh fringe comedy but sadly it applied to this b and b. First impressions of accommodation are crucial and this failed abysmally. Having just completed a 5 hour train journey to be told there was a 2% charge on any card payment and that if you wanted a cooked...

Two lovely buildings-with parking- within walking distance of centre: it should have been ideal but was badly let down by what looked like penny-pinching everywhere. The sheets on our bed were un-ironed, towels were small and cheap, there was no handle on the inside of the bathroom door- it looked as if a scrap door from somewhere else had been...

A guest house approx 20 min walk from city centre which although clean & comfortable could be so much better if the owner spent a bit of money on small improvements to the bedrooms and offered a fresh continental breakfast with croissants bought the day before rather than the week before. Charming character to the place but I can understand...

Decided to stay here as we had stayed before about 10 years ago. The family room had 4 single beds. The room was clean and comfortable. We found the staff a bit abrupt and not particularly friendly. After a good nights sleep we went for breakfast- What a disappointment! We were only informed breakfast was continental after we booked in....

four ladies booked two twin rooms for two nights the smaller of the rooms was pretty grotty and small they also had to get their shower replaced as it was broken and the wardrobe was a shallow cupboard not deep enough for a hanger.

4 of us booked months ago to stay in Thrums and then a week before were moved to 21 Craigmiller Park apartments due to a booking error. Looking at the website this did not seem a huge issue as it was only a few minutes walk down the road and looked nice. The house looks great from the outside but...
