October 2014

This wasn't a hotel but a guest house. It was immaculately clean and reasonably convenient for the centre of Edinburgh (a short bus ride required).

Wifi didn't work so it meant I couldn't complete my business. I was lucky enough to have an en-suite but some of the rooms shared a bathroom. The breakfast was inedible (on my second morning I left early to find a café rather than eat in the hotel). They had space to park four cars and had eleven rooms. There wasn't a desk in the bed room. The décor was very old and tired. There was old paint tins stacked up in the lobby. There was a lot of noise rom the busy road outside.
