The size of the room,
The breakfast was shocking. Advertise a full Scottish breakfast and there was scrambled eggs and bacon on offer.
The location is great, short bus ride to city centre. Breakfast is just fine. Parking fir cars on driveway, although you need to leave keys in case it has to be moved!
The accommodation is very dated. The electric sockets need repairing and are a hazard, had to turn clock radio off as it was hissing! ts very noisey with other guests coming and going up and down the stairs, right next to head board wall of the bed! Huge cobwebs hanging from ceiling.
Location. Off-street parking. Bus stop opposite
Television lead needs attention. Wi-Fi coverage was poor. We found the demeanor of the staff and owner lacked warmth and was somewhat dismissive.
The bed was sizable and comfortable. The room was cozy.
The toilet did not flush well and the shower pressure was very low. Also, must be located just up the street from an ambulance base - many ambulances raced by with siren much of the day.
Location to bus lines.
Change of breakfast items from day to day would be nice. Bathroom ceiling fan made noise. Also, toilet didn't flush effectively-needed several flushes.
With a stay at The Ben Doran Guest House in Edinburgh (Newington), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Royal Commonwealth Pool and Festival Theatre. Featured amenities include a business center, express check-in, and express check-out. Free self parking is available onsite.
