we liked very much the friendly welcome. The assistance to find a save place for our bikes (in your backyard)we appreciated. And espescially that it was no problem to bring the bikes back to the street after three days and we had to disturb you in preparing the breakfasts for your guests. You and your staff kept smiling ! A good starting place for sightseeing the city we enjoyed our stay at Bravehaert guesthouse

The service was excellent, the breakfast was great, the staff were friendly, the rooms were clean, and I considered it a very good place to stay. A short walk from the train station to the main street and a short ride on #10 bus took me there.

I felt staff could have been a little more interactive ad friendlier with guest, all you got was HI when you walked in for breakfast. we also had to ask for extra cups and towels despite the booking being for 4 people, I don't feel only 2 towels and cups is enough when the booking is for 4. other places we stayed provided an basic early breakfast of juice toast coffee cereal when we left at 6 without our asking for it, this was not considered or offered when we were leaving at 8, despite being prepaid for, these little things are not much but can make a stay more pleasant thanks

It was lovely, warm, pleasant. The rooms were lovely, service so friendly, prices reasonable, its hard to find any fault with your guesthouse. I would just suggest that you put directions on cards/website to help people get there. Hope to come again sometime. CD.

The breakfasts were excellent, we were able to make healthy choices. The staff was very helpful. I had made the bed each day, rearranging the sheet and tidying the coverlet. I was disappointed to find on removing the sheet completely to remake the bed the night prior to our departure that the mattress cover was disgusting, as it was late I could not bring this to the attention of the staff until the next morning - it had obviously been overlooked when the bed was made up for our visit. Despite poor eyesight the dust was abvious in our clothes closet and it had not been dusted during our entire stay of 5 nights. It is a pity the housekeeping was unacceptable, our final night was uncomfortable as we were aware of the state of the underpad and sleep eluded us. We would not stay at Braveheart again.

my daughter and i stayed at the breavehart guest house just resently and it was very basic but very clean and warm the people that run it are realy nice people and will help you in any way they can The only problem i found is the bed was very hard so i didnt get much sleep but my daughter loved it and slept like a log. We are planning to go back and stay in the bravehart again when the weather warms up. we cannot wait. we stayed in the annexs which is just down the road from the main guest house it workes out it is about 8 houses down on the other side. you have to go to main house for breakfast but that was no problem it was a nice place the food was very filling and there was a good verity to choose from. and we will most deffanatly be going back

We had a great stay!!! The owners were very kind and gracious. Our view from the room looked right out over the water and was breath taking. We were very fortunate to have great weather and that aided to the awsome sun set. The rate was exceptional and the accommadations were beyond our expectations. Waking up to a true scottish breakfast prepared to order by the owners themselves was the icing on the cake. Thank you again for making our stay completly enjoyable. We took a 3 day trip from Wakefield England and when we returned we could not stop talking about our stay. You can bet that we will book a room there again and again. Jerry Carlson USA

Travel directions depend on where one is coming from and can be easily found on google or from Braveheart staff.......Bravehearts location is terrific....just minutes from bus,good restaurant/pubs and about a 20" walk to downtown. We enjoyed our stay at Braveheart because the staff were so friendly & helpful, the breakfast was best we had during our three week stay.... The rooms were quiet & clean but otherwise only "adequate"........ We would stay there again. donna

We had a great stay in Edinburgh over the August bank Holiday. We able to catch an airpork link bus in Edinburgh town centre. The Guest Hous is within easy walking distance of about 15 minutes. On our arrival we were made to feel very welcome & nothing seemed too much trouble. We stayed for 4 nights in an room over the road from the main guest house. The room had had some improvements made to it but I still felt it was was quite shabby. The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels and plenty of tea and milk provided. There was internet access for a small fee and we were able check in online for our return flight home. Overall it was a good place to stay with easy access to the city.

The guest House was very central with a fabulous theatre accross the road. The room we stayed in was lovely and comfortable .The bus was so close to where we stayed and it was so near on a fine day you could walk into the city. Thank you and we hope to return next year and we will be back to the Braveheart Guest house. From Carmel and Martin from Ireland.
