Catriona is an incredibly welcoming, friendly, helpful and wonderful hostess. As a solo traveler, my ensuite room was large and comfortable with a view of Arthur's Seat. Breakfast was delicious. Located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood about a 20-30 minute walk from City Centre, or catch a bus which stops just a short walk from the B&B. Parking is free... More

Katrina, our host, is very friendly and warm throughout our whole stay. The first day when we arrived, she even offered us the jackets as she was afraid we did not wear sufficient clothes as it is windy and with intermittent shower. The room which we stayed in, although there may not be sufficient luggage space for 4 people, is... More

I found this hotel through VisitScotland.com (recommended for any Scotland plans). It is a bit away from the city center (20 min walk) but in a very calm and nice neighborhood. There is also a bus to Princes street. You can also see Arthur's Seat from the room window. The landlady is very helpful. We had a lot of chats... More

A good choice convenient to Pollock Halls and to town. Clean, comfy, helpful advice on getting about and great scrambled eggs. This was a good choice for a family taking their child to uni or visiting them there.
