Overall rating: 4.3 out of 5
 Stayed in Room 2 for a Saturday night. Richard the owner was friendly and welcoming. Liked the secure entry set up as could come and go as we pleased without disturbing anybody. Room was as described- comfortable clean and well equipped. Had a very pleasant sleep- decent bed. Excellent location and parking. Great place to stay to explore Edinburgh as really central and close to public transport etc. many good pubs restaurants cafés right on the doorstep. I
