The B&B is a little out of City Centre, in Leith but only 15 mins on a frequent bus route so good access. The Owners were incredibly welcoming, friendly, helpful and sweet. English is their 2nd language but they are happy to chat away and offer advice from public transport to local restaurants. The accommodation is basic but good value...

Fantastic hosts. Breakfast was great. I arrived very late - just after midnight. The hostess kindly stayed up to greet me. Allowed me to eat takeaway dinners in the dining room. I was there for 2 nights and will definitely stay there again if I am in that part of Edinburgh.

a very happy experience, happy and friendly hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble, even the offer of a picnic take-away for our onward journey. The purpose of our visit was the tattoo and the guest house was on a frequent bus service route. Also a pleasant summer walk to the city and to Leith docks, the home of...

Good welcome and advises, they offered Bus & town maps at arrival. We had the family room for 4 people and it was comfortable, but this room is on the Ferry road side, so a little bit noisy in the early morning, but almost quiet during the night. Very good breakfast.

Seemingly unassuming on the outside, the immaculate furnishings inside this guest house are splendid and homely. The ensuite facilities in our room would give some top-end hotels a run for their money. Brian and Sue, the owners, are extremely welcoming. Should you so require it, they are also very helpful with information about attractions, amenities, and direct pickup tours to...

The guest house is beautiful. We had a spacious room with a large bathroom. The beds were very comfortable. Sue gives you a choice for breakfast as well as fresh fruit and cereals. There are a couple of takeouts restaurants close by as well as laundry facilities, store and bank machine. The bus stops are within a five minute walk....
