Visited to enjoy Scotlands Hogmamy party to bring in 2017. Location is great for walking around Edinburgh. Breakfast was great. The owners answered every question and were very friendly. The shower was a bit small for me, but for the price and location I have no complaints. I would stay here again.

We have just spent a weekend at the guest house and really enjoyed everything about the stay, from check in and been given as much local information as we needed to the rooms themselves and to the breakfast, couldn't fault it at all. As for been in the right location, 10 minutes walk and you are on Princess Street. Nothing...

This hotel is close to the center. It is good for short stay in Edinburgh. Good continental and English breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful about the city and things to do. The room was an en-suite and it had a good value for money.

We booked a four poster room as the photo looked lovely and a great price. I phoned to check parking and confirmed a four poster as for our honeymoon, i was told we had room 14. On arrival we were taken to room 31 at the top of the building. It was small and in bad repair, with ripped lamp...

Every now and then there is a review that highlights problems caused by poor communication, rarely we hope caused by us. In this case we received a booking from Booking.Com for a midwinter bargain break in a third floor double ensuite with four poster (that is the title of it! supported by description, pictures and size). As we always do...

Nice guest house located just off The Meadows, so very close to the old town. Fancy four poster beds and a huge traditional and rich breakfast is what makes you think this is the place to be. Staff is very welcoming and available.

Thank you so much for your entirely positive review, we do hear frequently that the location is near ideal - close enough to walk to everything, but just out of the 'Downtown Manhattan' noise problems of the very centre - so thank you for highlighting that. We're glad you enjoyed the four poster bed and we're delighted to hear such...

Very central, bus service into town only 10mins, free Wi-Fi an absolute bonus. For the price you cannot complain, a few things that would have made our stay even better, bigger towels, the shower in room 33 needs sorting, every time you turned you switched it off!! Warm plates at breakfast time, a fantastic selection but went cold very quick...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
