    Very good

    Nice and close to easy public transport to get into the centre of Edinburgh.

    TV didn't work and staff not concerned to try and fix it!

    Superb

    Excellent value for money. Very good facilities, given the low rate. *Excellent* and friendly treatment by the lady at the reception (and an error made in the booking was corrected on the spot, by upgrading our room at no extra charge). Great location (park opposite, I was woken up by ducks in the morning ;-) ), restaurants and take-away round the corner, or almost.

    If that matters, it is a bit far from the city centre (through on a straight line from there, practically), but there seems to be abundant bus coverage in the area. I'd chosen to rent a car, and had planned to avoid the centre (travelling on business), so the hotel was a good choice for me (near the exit to the east coast).

    The room was big. I asked for a room for 4 and the one given to me was actually big enough for all of us to move around comfortably without getting into each other's way. The optional breakfast is excellent and well worth the additional cost.

    When we arrived, we were told that they were fully booked and sent to another hotel. When we arrived at the second hotel, we were told that there had been a mistake and were sent back. I was not happy lugging my luggage around trying to check into an accommodation. It seems to me that the room was not properly checked before we were given the keys. The light bulbs and the TV did not work. The TV was fixed after a short wait but we had to wait for the person in charge to return before the bulbs can be replaced. It was quite late into the night before it was fixed,

    Good

    Nice big room. Not far walk from the sea side with restaurants and bars (although restaurants' kitchen closes about 10pm, there is a good take-away opened till midnight).

    Not in the city centre (15 mintues by bus from there). The double bed is rather small and the matrass was not convenient.

    Fabulous

    The manager, although he had been pitchforked into a shambles only 24 hours before, did everything he could to make our stay there enjoyable. The hotel had been abandoned by the previous manager and he had to sort out the mess left by her (both literal and managerial) and he did this in a competent and pleasant manner.

    No. It suited our needs admirably. Guest reviews (see below) were not relevant as the management had changed suddenly.

    Well I didn't actually stay there because something got messed up with my reservations and was put in another hotel a couple of doors down.

    The room i got was desciribed as basic, Basic it was. I have stayed in better bedsits, the toilet was down the hall. The bed was an old wooden bed, very uncomfortable, although the sheets were clean. The hotel is in need of a full revamp.

    Superb

    Superb price, and wonderful, friendly service from Wilma. Basic, but just what was needed for the purpose. Scrupulously clean, and a peaceful area.

    It would have been nice to have ensuite facilities but, for the price at this time of year in Edinburgh, you cannot complain. For me, I was able to obtain bathroom and wc facilities with no inconvenience to myself or other guests. Well done!

    Superb

    I like the Leith area of Edinburgh - historic, emerging, great sidewalk diners and coffee spots. This hotel is right across the street from a large park. Good bus access to the city centre.

    My room had to share a bathroom, but the price reflected that inconvenience.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    It was a lovely quiet guest house. It was clean and cozy, the rooms were well equipped but not cluttered and it was a perfect economical place to stay.

    The bed mattress was a bit uncomfortable and the location was quite a distance from the down town but for the most part I was extremely happy with the whole stay!

    Fabulous

    Run by a charming Italian woman, very nice and friendly, a delight. The staff at any hotel always make a huge difference.

    Location wise, its a bit far from the city centre but manageable none the less.

    Very good

    Friendly staff and family atmosphere. The hotel is reachable very conveniently by public transport. The breakfast is delicious, traditional scottish but yet light and digestible:)

    Shared shower upstairs, crowded in the morning.

    Good

    It was reasonably priced and was in a good location with easy access to the city centre.

    The hotel needs revamping but it is clean and was perfect for what we needed.
