State of room it was dusty, attitude when I complained was awful. Called at 8pm got told it was out of hours, they would check in the morning and if they thought I was complaining unduly, I would be asked to leave. Never been spoken to in all my life like that before, then got told I had to understand...

We ended our week of Scotland in Edinburgh and it could have been a better experience if we had chosen for another place to stay for the last 2 nights. It started already with getting into the Guest House. There was no reception and because we were a bit later (due to traffic) we had to call a phone number...

Plus side ok location, good shower and WIFI minus side - The place had been cleaned how I would expect a teenager to clean (only obvious places). I could hear every footstep of the people staying in the room above, also their extra activities later that night. The door to the room blocks out no noise. I had driven to...

WARNING: DON'T COME HERE!!!! We were supposed to stay there two nights, and we only were there for a couple hours, while we tried to find another place to stay. The room was absolutely filthy, covered in dust, with dirty blankets and pillows (even hairs in the bed!!), a broken chair, dirty table, filthy rug with remains of food from...

First of all, there's no contact between the staff and the customers. Earlier, they send you an email to tell you how to check in and how to check out by yourself, even if you're there during the normal working hours. I had the feeling they don't even want to see you. Second of all, every time I used the...

Nice little guest house in leith. Very quiet location. The guest house itself was nice and clean. The only thing that was a let down was that there was no staff after 11 in the morning. Would go back again.

Key safe check-in. The 2 single beds were comfy and clean. Quiet, so had a good sleep. The room and bathroom could have been cleaner. Tea/coffe making facilities, hairdryer available. TV, wifi fine. Electric shower was rubbish, heated up to roasting then went cold (this was the serious downside, everything else was adequate). Good value for money. Half an hours...

After reading some review's on here i was a little worried about how bad it was going to be but when I got to the place I was pleasantly surprised. We had a family room with ensuite bathroom. Room was bright, clean, new beds and carpet. Everything worked enough to get you by and we had a nice view of...

Great location for bus to city - get 25 bus, costs £1.50 each for a single or £4 for day ticket. Bus accepts cash only. WiFi was adequate for us, no breakfast because the guy had the day off but it wasn't included in our fee so no big deal. Hot water unit is good once you get the idea...
