Noises in the night. It's nothing you can help, but if you are really tired and try to sleep and just in this moment someone shuts the door not too quiet, you are fully awake again.

Sarah Alone Stayed: Jul 13

Very comfortable and satisfied stay

I stayed in a single room which had a separate shower room on the same landing. This was not a problem as it was for my use only. The house is well decorated, clean and homely. My room was clean and comfortable. And despite the weather being really hot at 26 degrees that night, with the window left open it cooled down enough to sleep comfortably.
Location was perfect, parallel to the main road, therefore being quiet; and bus stop within 1minute walk that brings you directly into city centre. Read more

Highly recommended

The property is a very spacious, beautiful house around 10/15 mins from Princes Street on the bus. We were immediately welcomed by the owner who is a lovely woman, very friendly and chatty. She told us exactly how to get in and out of the city centre. Our room was spotless, the bed was extremely comfortable and the ensuite bathroom was immaculate. Tea and coffee was provided. We had the option of a full breakfast but decided to spend the extra hour in bed. Read more

Besides the room, the proprietors were wonderful. We got great recommendations for food and tours, and she was very knowledgeable about the bus system. Breakfast was delicious and cooked on demand!
Dislikes?
This was not an expensive B&B (relative to a hotel), but it was more expensive compared to other B&B's we stayed in.

I also recommend that you try to contact the B&B directly for better rates.
