We had a great time in Maureen's flat, she and her husband are very welcoming and helpful, they gave us lots of advices and lovely ginger tea. They live in a very quiet area, the train station Haymarket, many shops and the city center are walking distance. The guest room is spacious with a very comfortable bed. Thanks again!
Maureen & Gordon were brilliant hosts, made us feel very welcome, we even joined them for a glass of wine. Their home was immaculate and our room n bathroom were very clean. Very handy for grassmarket. Would definitely stay with them again, very friendly couple.
Maureen and Gordon were wonderful hosts for our stay in Edinburgh. The property is located within a gated, secured apartment complex. It's within walking distance from the Tram and bus lines. It's a nice walk to the Castle and the Royal Mile. You do not need a car, because the bus lines operate 24 hours and you can purchase an all day pass for 4.00 pounds per person. We had a private bath, with shower only, just off of the guest room. We were served a nice continental breakfast every morning. We would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Edinburgh. Cheers!
Maureen and her husband are very nice people. They gave us many good tips for restaurants, bus/tram connections and sights. The breakfast was delicious and we have had a very pleasant stay. The environment is very quiet and yet close to downtown. We would come back at any time and can really recommend Maureen in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh.
Staying with Maureen and Gordon was a great experience, we had fun and lough a lot.
The house was spot on and Maureen and Gordon made us feel like home.
The house it's just in the middle of everything, you can walk from there to old town, or the castle easily, and after that you can reach new town, that sit just around the corner.
We hope to see them again and we wish them good luck with everything.
Hemos pasado unos días fantásticos en su casa. Destacar que es una mujer encantadora, muy amable y siempre dispuesta a ayudarnos para conocer Edimburgo o lo que nos hiciera falta, incluso con charlas y risas nocturnas con su marido en el salón.
Nos hemos sentido como en casa.
La habitación muy bien, cama muy comoda y limpia.
El baño está fuera de la habitación pero era sólo para nosotros y respetaron en todo momento nuestra intimidad. También muy limpio.
Está localizado en una zona tranquila, cerca de zona comercial y casco antiguo. Muy bien comunicado en cuanto al transporte.
Desayuno fantástico con fruta fresca, muy completo.
Siamo stati benissimo a casa di Maureen! una padrona di casa gentile, attenta alle nostre esigenze e nel contempo discreta. La camera e il bagno pulitissimi e comodi. La posizione è favolosa sia perché vicino alla fermata della linea Airlink 100 che arriva dall'aeroporto con fermata a HayMarket in 20' (dalla fermata si imbocca Morrison Steet e si gira la seconda a destra attraversando un piccolo spazio verde recintato che delimita la via gardeners crescent; usciti dal cancellato del piccolo giardino si prosegue per 100 metri e si trova il cancello sulla sinistra) sia perché in 10' di cammino si raggiunge il centro storico, il castello e tutte le principali attrazioni di Edimburgo. Se invece volete utilizzare gli autobus, comodissimi, avete la fermata del 45 a 20 metri dal cancello.
Siamo stati benissimo e se avremo la possibilità di tornare a Edimburgo ci farà sicuramente piacere tornare da Maureen .
