    The double room was lovely. Both hosts were very nice and welcoming. The place is located approx. 20 min walk from the city centre in a quiet residential area, approx 10 min by bus. There was good selection on breakfast menu including full English breakfast....More

    Not too far from the university and various parks. All walking distance. And the bus line runs along Dalkeith. Good restaurants nearby. Inn keepers are gracious and welcoming. Happy we stayed here. Recommended. Rooms are spacious. Quiet. Especially the rooms at the rear. Good breakfast.

    A group of 8 of us stayed here, for a total of four days, at the start and the end of our trip to Scotland, and we loved it. The rooms are lovely and very clean. Breakfast is delicious, and David's porridge is especially tasty....More

    Parking was off street ? Was safe. Nice people but thought it was expensive but then Edinburgh is pricy. Good breakfast. Clean room. Good wifi. We ate in to local pubs. We took a taxi into town. £8.00 . So a little out of town....More
