Positive Reviews

Friendly and accommodating service

Most previous guests were complimentary towards the service they received at the B&B. The staff members were often summed up as courteous, friendly and accommodating.

Convenient Edinburgh location

Despite not being the most central, the accommodation's location - with various stores, restaurants and attractions such as Holyrood Park within walking distance - was seen in a positive light by most past visitors. Moreover, the inclusion of free on-site parking was also well-received as an added convenience of the location.

Wi-Fi free and reliable

The free Wi-Fi service supplied by the B&B has received plaudits from most former guests that used the facility. It has been claimed that the wireless Internet was both reliable and fast for the most part.

Negative Reviews

Small and dated rooms

When it came to the standard of the rooms, a sizeable amount of past visitors were left upset about this part of their stay at the accommodation. As well as most being labelled as cramped, the rooms have been described as basic and outdated.

Shared bathroom not ideal

For rooms that do not contain en-suite facilities, the shared bathroom policy of the B&B has, understandably, been judged as inconvenient at times by former guests. Furthermore, the condition of the shared bathroom has occasionally received criticism.

No cooked breakfast option

Although the continental offering was seen as adequate for the most part, the aspect of breakfast has been criticised by numerous previous visitors. In particular, the lack of a cooked breakfast option was criticised, while others did not enjoy the fact that the accommodation does not possess a dedicated dining area.
