Great value,good quality.
You'll not find anything better at this price, and could pay a lot more for a lot less! Everything was spotless and the room felt like someone cared about it. Ensuite squeezed in in the corner, but perfectly adequate and clean. Plenty of tea and coffee provided, comfy beds, a decent shower and big fluffy towels. Only downside was the stained carpet, but it did look new and the room is freshly decorated, so I guess it's recent and proved hard to clean. Haven't eaten here, there's so many lovely places to eat nearby, and it's a short walk into the centre/station, or there's loads of buses. You can usually park (free) somewhere nearby on Pilrig street.

OK for the price.
I arrived in the evening to find my room had been booked by another party. The owners told me my room had an electrical problem and that I could move in the morning. The next day I saw people coming out of that room and knew what had happened. The owner did not speak good it was hard to communicate.

Very warm
Staff were really good on arrival. Our room was small, but well laid out and I personally found the decoration to be aimed at a sympathetic recreation of the house of its era. The room we took was a little cold. The radiator in our room seemed to not get beyond Luke warm. But radiators in the bathroom were nice and hot. Perhaps they just need a system clean or balance. Cooked breakfast was of good quality, but lacked a few things. Beans were chilled? And a cooked breakfast is normally sausage, bacon, egg, hash brown, beans, Tomatomand mushroom as a rule! But it was only sausage, egg and beans? They did however offer toast, and continental breakfasts. Location is ideal for the centre of Edinburgh or for the royal yacht etc! To put this into perspective! I would HAPPILY stay here again. And believe for its price, you will be hard pressed to find a better placed, cleaner, cheaper hotel. A few small tweaks, and addressing a few minor issues! This place could be a little goldmine.
