    Great

    The choice of breakfast was amazing as was the cooking.

    No way of drying the towels in the bathroom. Needs more shelving/hooks in the bathroom.

  • 7.8
    Very good

    The comfortable bed and the offer of whisky or sherry in the room.

    The smell of cigarette smoke when you entered the building! The low pressure in the shower.

    Very good

    It was very comfotable and there was a good bus service to the attractions we needed to get to , plenty of nice restarants to eat for an evening meal close to the hotel

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The room was nice and warm , lovely view of the garden ,even in the dreadful Scottish weather.Breakfast was good too , plenty of fruits and cereals ,also eggs , sausages etc served with a stiff Scottish gallantry (that you can meet everywhere , seasoned though with their excellent sense of humour ) .Comfortable bed ,nice to have whiskey and sherry offered , also a selection of teas and coffee in the room .Free parking in front for 6 cars in two rows , no more , which means you have to be prepared to remove yours if needed to make room . It was a positive experience all in all but if I had to choose for the best feature , it must be the room : large , with a warm atmosphere , makes you feel at home

    The bathroom is small and has some minor problems , but nothing is perfect right ?This is however compensate by the fact that it was very clean .Also , the hotel is at few bus stations away from the centre , so if you want a late beer somewhere there you have to take the bus and shiver a bit in a bus station, waiting (not too long , mind you) .But I blame the weather mostly , which is by far the worse thing that you can hold against Scotland .

    Nice

    The hotel was clean and had good atmosphere.There was welcome alcohol drink in the room, the breakfast was tasty.The owners were friendly.

    The hotel was far from the city center than I had expected.

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    The room was clean and a good size, and comfortable enough. The breakfast was wonderful and service was great.

    Possibly a normal breakfast on New Year's day (instead of just a breakfast box) would have been better for those who could have made it in the morning.

    Perfect

    Staff were friendly and helpful while our room had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Buses run frequently and even overnight and stop 30 seconds from the front door. Also a few restaurants/pubs nearby if you don't want to venture into town. Couldn't have asked for more.

    Nice

    One of the best breakfasts I have had fresh fruit selection very good. Staff were helpful and pleasant.

    Only one small complaint toiletries were miniscule and towels could do with replacing.

    Very good

    Good frequent bus route to Edinburgh centre. Excellent breakfast with best variety of fruit for breakfast that we have ever seen, other than a five star hotel in Israel.

    Very good

    Good location, very good bus routes went right past the hotel. Excellent breakfast selection in the hotel. Very friendly staff. Competative rates, some of the other hotels we looked at had doubled their prices during the Tattoo/Festival period. Complimentary whiskey and sherry in the room on arrival.

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    The staff were friendly, the food was excellent, particularly the breakfast and the choice.

    Nothing, it was clean tidy and very welcoming. As a single traveller I was made very comfortable. I am in business and found it a welcoming change to have excellent service with no fuss When I next visit I will use the Allison house, no question. Great place.

    Perfect

    Almot all the little touches which make the difference were there (see below). The little decanters were a special point. Stunning breakfast buffet of fresh fruit.

    i missed a hairdryer - I always find one useful. Breakfast: I would vote for replacing indifferent pastries with oatcakes.
