    Lovely hosting, David was super helpful and full of local knowledge. The breakfast had a great veggie option and the room was comfy. It's a 25 minute walk from the city centre. And a bus stop just outside the door.

    Close to the city centre. Very nice building and rooms which were well kept. The Breakfast was excellent both in terms of quality and large enough to keep you going for a day of exploring the city.

    Spacious room and washroom, excellent facilities and full Scottish breakfast, friendly host and free parking on the street (space availability depends on your luck though)

    The host requires 50% cash in advance and again, cash for settlement. A little inconvenience

    The house islocated outside the city center but accessible by foot or by bus n 11 (the stop Dryden Street is right in front of the house). The room was very spacious but cosy, nicely decorated, with a well equipped bathroom ensuite. The fireplace, not pictured in the photos, was a pleasant surprise. The hosts were welcoming and helpfull, communicating since the booking had been made. We really enjoyed the freshly made breakfast (typical Scottish). The room is cleaned every day, so the overall service is even better than in a standard hotel plus there is a lot of privacy and a personal approach of the hosts.

    Nothing at all, even the weather was very nice :-)
