Jackie and her husband gave us a very warm welcome and were perfect hosts! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay; the house is beautifully kept and spotless, the bed was large and comfortable and we felt free to come and go as we pleased. The centre of town was only a short, straightforward bus ride away and we got all the info we needed from our hosts. We look forward to visiting Edinburgh again as it's a wonderful city and would love to stay here again if poss.
Very welcome and nice stay with all home amenities !!
A very warm welcome received from hosts, Jackie and George. Easy to reach from city centre, the accommodation was perfect for our stay and comfortable too. Thank you both for an excellent weekend!
Jackie and George were very warm and friendly. Their home is very clean and the bed was comfortable. They assisted me with how to get around the town and to the sites I wanted to visit. This was my first experience with staying in someone home during my vacation . Jackie made it such a good experience I would do this again. I strongly recommend her as a stay if you go to Edinburgh , Scotland. Thank you Jackie and George for a great experience .
Un trato muy amable, afectuoso y servicial. Dispuesta a ayudarte en todo momento, muy discretos y educados.
La situación muy bien, bien comunicada con un bus que deja en el centro de Edimburgo.
Muy recomendable, si volvemos repetiremos.
Lovely Hosts, nice and comfortable Rooms,
We enjoyed our stay
Jackie and her husband were really welcoming and helpful. I had a very heavy suitcase and they allowed me to collect it from their house later in the day to enjoy our last day in Edinburgh. It was brilliant and well located (a short ride by bus to the centre !). We had a great time and the room was clean I would definitely recommend this homestay!
Jackie and George are brilliant hosts!
Relaxed and friendly, we would definately recommend a stay with this charming couple.
Ion & Jacqueline
Very friendly and caring couple. Went out of their way to make us comfortable. Strongly recommended.
Getting to Jackie's home was easy by bus. Her instructions were clear and the bus stop was very close to her house. It was pouring with rain when we arrived, George saw us from the window and came out with a large umbrella and a warm smile to meet us. Jackie and George were wonderful hosts and made me and my daughter feel very welcome and comfortable. They were also very helpful, giving us lots of tips on getting around Edinburgh. We enjoyed our trip very much and will be happy to stay at Jackie's if we had the opportunity to visit Edinburgh again.
