      I was greeted by a very kind young man who explained everything to me in a friendly manner and carried my heavy suitcase up to the second floor. I had a single room which was lovely, it was clean and felt homely. The tv and shower were good and there was tea making facilities with nice biscuits and a ferrero rocher too. There was also a map and details password for the wifi, so it was like they had thought of everything. The guest house itself was an old victorian house but was very clean and well maintained. The breakfast was served till 10am which is later than most places and there was a menu so you could choose exactly what you wanted for breakfast. I was impressed by this as in my experience most places just pre-cook it and you don't have that much choice in what you get. I would definitely go back.

      I paid in the evening but didn't get a receipt and in the morning it was a different member of staff and they asked for payment but I didn't have a receipt to show them that I had paid.

      Clean, hospitable and helpful. Breakfast facilities are very good. Cheap bb but the choices of breakfasts are grand:)

      Door is hard to close, pillows are too soft.

      Our room was not en suite but we had our own private bathroom across the landing, which was fine. Other rooms seemed to be en suite. Very nice breakfast room, nicely furnished and lovely breakfasts. I can recommend this B&B.

      My room was very comfortable and clean, had a view to the rear to Arthur Seat, and had nice toiletries, fluffy towels and crisp white bedding.,It also included tray with choice of tea, coffee, chocolate, with milk and sugar, chocolate brownies and a chocolate sweet The ensuite showerm was new and spotless. Breakfast had a wide choice including cooked food and was well prepared. Staff very friendly and efficient. Good location for travel into the City with a choice of several buses.I would happily stay again.

      Little further out of town, but only marginally. The service made up for it.

      I had a nice stay at Alba Hills Guest House. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the room (single room) is simple but perfectly decent, and it also serves a good, generous breakfast. The hotel is very easy to get to -- there are several buses that serve this route (ask the manager for details), or you can just walk along one straight road (the street name keeps changing, though) for half an hour and you will be in the city centre. The hotel is also close to Holyrood Park, therefore very convenient if you want to visit Arthur's Seat.

      The staff was very warm, welcoming, and helpful, and the room was immaculate. Very good bus connections to downtown Edinburgh. I would definitely stay at the Alba Hills Hotel again.
