        Small but luxuriously furnished with very friendly staff. The powerfull rain shower was an unexpected delight as was the nice collection of dvd`s as well a well stocked library in the lounge. Will definitely return on my next visit.

        The location of the hotel is really practical, because you can visit either the city centre or the ocean drive or the walk of leith area. The staff was nice. The room was really clean.

        The noise made by the omnipresent seagulls getting nearby to pick up some food in the bins in the neighbourhood.

        A fsbulous small B&B with friendly helpfull owners & comfortable , clean accomodation. It seems newly refurbished and was conveniently located for the city centre.

        I liked the room, everything was very clean and comfortable. The owners were really kind and helpful with any inquiries we had. Breakfast was okay in relation to the money we payed for it. The location of the b&b was in Leith which is like 10 minutes walk from the heart of Edinburgh, so it was awesome as we had both the centre and the quietness of the Leith area combined. Many eating places and coffee shops are also available in Leith, as well as the Cambridge gardens' park which is right behind the b&b and it was lovely to stroll there. Generally, it was a nice stay and I would go there again if I happened to be in Edinburgh! :-)

        Nothing I guess.. If breakfast was richer, it would be better. But what was available was also pretty good! :-)

        Not a lot.....

        The room was really pokey, bathroom was unbelievably tiny, bed was under sloping roof, so sitting up in bed is not possible if you are anywhere near the wall!, No cooked breakfast available, just a meagre continental offering!

        The bedroom is too small

        No one cook the breakfast;no hairdryer.

        Very nice and comfortable room. We had plenty of natural light from a big window. Very quiet area to stay. Breakfast was fantastic. Good connections with local buses. Very helpful staff, we could borrow a hairdryer. Everything was clean although there's carpet in the floor which doesn't help much if you're allergic to dust.

        The room was quite small. The B&B is in the area of Leith, about 30 min walking from the center. From the airport there's not a direct bus, so you need to change in the city center.

        Clean, not far to the city centre, very good continental breakfast.

        The rooms are excellent. Cambridge house peaceful and I enjoyed staying there. Well furnished rooms, clean and tidy.

        Friendly welcoming staff who were always happy to help. Lovely shower, hot and strong!

        Television on the wall kept flashing on and off when it was turned off which we couldn't turn off. We ended up having to leave the telly on but on a channel which wasn't showing anything when we were trying to sleep.

        It was clean and very well priced. In a good, quiet neighborhood, very close to public transit (took about 8 minute to get to the old town by bus). Friendly staff.

        Everything was pretty decent, the bed was a bit hard though. But it was actually a double bed instead of just two singles pushed together, so that was nice.

      • Couple

        We went to several Hotels and B&Bs in Edinburgh, but this one was by far the best. The price performance ratio is really good. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly. The owner is available to the guests all the time and is looking after the rooms personally. The rooms were modern and had a nice and friendly interior. Futhermore they were well equiped. All rooms have flat screen TVs. We booked the Wifi-option and this also worked out great, the connection was really good. We had an ensuite bathroom, which was very modern and good looking. The shower was great, real luxury. The B&B is well located in Leith. The bus stop is 2 minutes away and busses go every 10 minutes on weekdays. All in all this B&B his highly recommended.

      • Couple

        Free parking though on the street, not difficult to find a lot. Location is quite good, No.11 bus stop is just 2 mintues walking distance away and it takes you to the city center in 15 minutes time. The other direction goes to ocean terminal in maybe 10 mins only. Room is clean & tidy.

        I cannot tolerate the smell in the common areas, very strong indian spices smell. But it is much better inside the room. Also, the indian lady who checked me in was not very welcoming. No free wifi and free breakfast. Consider the amount i paid, i think it is not cheap.

      • Older travelers
        5.8

        Polite arrival greeting. Offer to help with luggage. Good shower, well designed room, though small.

        Strong spicy cooking smell in all public areas, evening and morning, also penetrated room to some degree. Perfunctory breakfast, some items clearly stale. Hosts absent until we'd finished eating. Minor point: Noise of other guests movements in the night
