This B&B is just outside the city centre but it is walkable in 20-30 minutes.
We were here for two nights to attend the Royal Military Tattoo and Fringe Festival.
The check in was easy and fast with friendly owners and staff - I advise arriving early to avoid not having a parking space. I had to leave my car round the corner on a street but could luckily see it from the window of my room.
The bed was massive and very comfy, but taking up most of the room there was limited storage space.
The shower was hot but not very powerful and the sink hot tap was broken when we arrived – the owner did mention that it didn’t work but didn’t seem like he was going to fix it for us, the next morning it was working so we can only assume that someone was in our room fixing it whilst we weren’t there.
The breakfast was ok and there was plenty of fresh choice – a bit misleading with the offer of a full Scottish breakfast and having an average choice of bacon, eggs, beans and sausage with toast.
It was one of our most expensive venues during a weeklong tour around Scotland and I believe that this is purely because of the Edinburgh price tag.
If I were to return to Edinburgh I would probably stay elsewhere because I believe for the amount this B&B costs (it’s not a hotel) I could stay somewhere nicer.
