The staff were hospitable, helpful, had sufficient communication skills. My room (no.9, with a private bathroom) was warm and comfortable, the radiator worked all right and just in case I was still too cold, I got an electric heater. The room is on the top floor with a lovely view on the garden, which also ensured quiet nights. Anyway, The Thistle... what people say » House is situated a bit off Dalkeith Road, so while bus stops are just round the corner, heavy traffic doesn't keep you awake at night.
Breakfast was -
The owner was so nice! One of the nicest people we've met!! Even though we were way past the Check-in time, an envelope with our key was waiting for us on the door. Our bed was extremely large and super comfortable. The room also had an unlimited supply of tea, coffee and cream :DD We also didn't have to bring our own hairdryer and adapters which was very handy. Location was nice - we almost never had to use public transportation ( 20 min walk til' old town). Breakfast was great, delicious and
