    Fantastic value for money. Great location. Basic,reasonable breakfast. Lucky that we got a parking space.

    Bathroom(toilet placement) a bit cramped. Quite noisy at front due to traffic.

    The beds were comfortable and the room had the very basic commodities you would expect. It was rather clean, although not sparkling clean. Staff presence was minimal.

    No bar fridge in the room, the bed sheets had a few hairs from previous guests here and there. As some reviewed, the walls are quite thin. Bathroom is alright. The towel dryer was always too warm though. The breakfast is the most minimal I have ever come across, even for this price. Staff has too much to deal with at that time so we didn't get bread.

    Very comfortable bed and powerful shower which was amazing

    Turned up to find out we were staying in the other property owned by the same people which was across the road this wasn't a problem tho although I always think it would be good to be told this in advance of arriving. Also a Double/Twin Room without Ironing facilities is a bit disappointing as well.

    The bed was comfortable and the room was ok. quiet neighbourdhood .

    The breakfast in general was horrible. the staff were so rude and unpolite with us and as i am wirtting this for my parents because they dont know any english, they were just not caring of them. One day my dad was asking for a hot chocolate and they took ages to bring it to the table, as well, at the beggining they were saying there is no chocolate and after 4 times they gave it to them. PRETENDING TO DONT UNDERSTAND WHAT CHOCOLATE MEANS, chocolate is chocolate chocolet or whatever in all the languages. Other day we came first and we were the last people to be served, looking at the rest while they were eating . when they served us, the food was cold, even the coffee and we asked them for some hot milk and the told us to go and heat it by ourselves. Then, my parents flight was delayed so instead of landing at 7, they landed at 8. So to make sure, i phoned them to check if it was ok to be delayed and they told us: After 9pm, we charge 10 pounds per hour for the check in. we needed to run, and take an uber after paying the bus from the airpot to Edinburgh . At least we got there on time. 9:03 pm.
