Lisajane was so helpful and pleasant. The room was clean, comfortable and interesting. The breakfast was delicious. The location is beautiful and close to everything. A pitch and putt course is just across the street.

We had such a nice and quiet stay in Edinburgh, even though the city at this time of the year is buzzing with the fringe festival. Lisa welcomed us together with Jack, her loving dog. Breakfast was always excellent and the rooms clean.

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
