Guest Reviews

Overall rating: 4.3 out of 5
 We stayed two nights (Friday Saturday) to help beat the Winter blues. We often come over for the day, so staying over was a small but well deserved treat.We love starting the day climbing Calton Hill which is only a short distance away. We could come and go as we pleased without disturbing our host and without having a deadline for breakfast, or feeling we had to eat plenty to get our money's worth. The weather was mixed, but having a bolthole meant that wasn't a problem.
