    Very good

    The staff were very nice, very friendly. The room was clean with a private bathroom. Location was good.

    I had a small room on the bottom floor and everytime the water was used it sounded like a garbage disposable unit was being used.

    cheap and within walking distance from the city centre

    The room was very small and only OK for a 1-2 nights' stay max. The bathroom so tiny that a person slightly larger than me would have great difficulties turning around or use the loo.

    Room was as expected. Breakfast selection was fair enough.

    Entrance door of the room needs repairing.

    Very good

    The location was excellent with a bus stop just on the corner......buses are brilliant £3.20 and ride anywhere all day! Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice and pleasant staff. The guest house was clean and tidy and manager and staff were very nice, I would stay again in the hope that the little defects we're sorted,

    My room was a little cramped, but fine for a 2 night stay.....I'd booked a single and got a twin. Shower room was very small with a leathel toilet roll holder that you could be impaled on and more water out of the shower hose than the head!!! Tv would have been nice, but owners hadn't changed to new sets in time for the digital changeover, so no news for me.

    Exceptional

    We have just returned from a weekend break at the Relax Guest House which we all thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were very friendly and helpful and created a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The rooms were very spacious, clean and nicely decorated with good on suite facilities, the beds were comfortable and the breakfast was very good. Although situated a little out of the main centre it was only a ten minute walk to Princes street which is no hassle. We felt the price was spot on for the facilities provided and we would definately return again!!

    It was cheap, available, and reasonably well located.

    While close to Waverly Station and the Royal Mile, it is down a steep hill that goes for several blocks. It had advertised "high-speed internet," but while I was there the internet connection was down completely. There was a small TV in my room that did not function.

    Superb

    Low cost B&B but had a good nights sleep, good location, friendly and informal style of staff. I think good value

    Some of the fabric could be refreshed, but for low cost it was good value. While fabric was a bit "tired" it was clean.Breakfast only served from 7.45- bit late if you have early business meeting - there was self service but milk and orange juice left from previous day, and was a bit off

    Superb

    I think the location of the hotel made it an ideal place to stay. The tourist attractions were all within walking distance. The Guest House itself was extremely homely and added to the scottish experience. I would definately consider staying here on my next visit to Edinburgh!

    The locks on the door were a bit strange and often difficult to use. The shower doors were also broken. However, on the whole these little issues would not discourage me from staying here again. The whole experience was great. An ideal place within easy reach of everything you could possibly want within the city.
