Positive Reviews


Great location.

The guest house is close to all the local bars and restaurants meaning that you can have a meal and a few drinks without the need of taking a taxi or a bus anywhere too far. It’s also only a short bus ride into the city centre.


Friendly manager and staff.

The staff are extremely welcoming in this guest house, and as there are only five rooms, they get to know you pretty quickly. It’s nice to stay in a place that feels like a home from home.


A nice breakfast.

The breakfast served is a good start to a day of sightseeing in the city and might even see you right through to dinner time. The full Scottish is well prepared and worth the wait especially if you’re a big eater.

Negative Reviews


Rooms could be slightly better.

The rooms are cheap, but you would still expect a little more in a building so beautiful on the outside. It’s a shame that the rooms aren’t really up to scratch as this guest house has plenty of potential to be a quirky and quaint little place.


Rooms a bit noisy.

The street outside can get a bit busy with traffic so you can expect to hear a lot of that noise coming through the old windows. The building could really do with a new set of windows to keep that noise out.
