Guests Name: Anonymous  Guest was travelling as: Mature couple

Good stuff: The host and hostess were unfailingly cheerful and helpful.

Overall: An excellent Guest House in a very convenient location, particularly for Arthurs Seat, the Old Town and the road out to the Edinburgh by-Pass (important when you want to go touring by car from an Edinburgh base). The decoration was tasteful, although some people might baulk at the boldness of colour in places. Our room was comfortable and adequate for our needs, the bathroom spacious and (unlike so many around the world) everything worked. The breakfast offered choice and variety, hot food was cooked to perfection. There were several nice touches over the course of our 3-night stay which added to the experience (most memorable being Bucks Fizz one breakfasttime - small gesture but neatly done). The host and hostess were friendly and attentive - always around when required, without ever being obsequious. Overall we frankly can't find a single thing to complain about. We would gladly recommend this Guest House to anyone who asks.
