Nice staff, great location
The Ben Doran was the first place we stayed after flying into Edinburgh from the west coast of the USA. We had a very long flight, and to make matters worse, we arrived at 7:00 a.m. UK time, without sleep and my wife having been severely airsick the entire trip. We arrived at the Ben Doran at 10:00 a.m., and asked if we could check in early. Due to the fact my wife was sick, the staff allowed us into our room early (even though check-in wasn't until 3:00 p.m. This allowed my wife to sleep and recover, which saved the first few days of our trip. The location is great (a short bus ride from the royal mile). I am very appreciative of the great professional staff in accommodating me and my sick wife!
The cleanliness, crispness of bedlinen, fluffy towels and friendliness of staff.
The service and the kindness of the owners was good.
The whole room and hotel services were terrific.
The only good thing I would say about this Guest House is that it is well located. It also provides limited car parking which is at a premium in this city.
The room did not live up to the reviews we read, poor quality room with very small bathroom with noisy fan, bed was very uncomfortable, no wireless internet available as advertised, very average and plain breakfast provided, walls are so thin that any noise or conversation in the house was heard ( person heard praying loudly at 2.30am - 2 nights straight) and definately not worth the price charged.
