Light sunny room with a double bed which is ideal for one and cosy for 2 is situated on a quiet tree-lined street close to the Meadows Park. Marchmont is near many places to eat and drink, the University and a 20mins walk to the Royal Mile. The bus stop into town is at the end of the road.

The space

The room is on the ground floor of a typical Edinburgh tenement flat with a 4ft 6in (137cm) bed and is perfect for one person but will fit 2 good friends ! It is light sunny and quiet.

Guest access

Living Room, Shower Room

Interaction with guests

I do live here so shower room and living room are shared and your bedroom has it's own TV too. Possibly not a great choice if you want to spend a lot of time inside chilling but great if you're sightseeing and eating out. I am a quiet soul and keep a low profile but am happy to chat and help you enjoy Edinburgh if wanted.

Other things to note

I'm happy for people to leave luggage early if room isn't ready and also pick it up later after departure if that helps.

Gillian is an exceptional host, offering tips and a hot cup of tea when most needed. The location is great once you figure the lay of the land (especially the path across the park to quickly reach city centre).. Bed is very comfy and hot breakfast delicious. If you are planning a trip to Edinburgh I highly recommend staying with Gillian

Breakfast is nice. But room is a little small. To walk to city Centre takes 20-25 minutes.
