This was a lovely room in Marianne's wonderful penthouse apartment! The view & location were great. Outside of the city bustle but almost next door to the Britannia and the best bus route for getting around. Marianne was also instamental in helping us connect with a super tour company. A great help to maximize a vacation
Marianne provided us the excellent room and apartment with amazing view on Edinburgh estuary. She let us use all facilities as our own, we enjoyed our holiday staying there. Thank you.
