Good B&B
We enjoyed our stay at Dorsten House. The owners were extremely friendly. Breakfast was served quickly and they were able to accommodate a gluten free diet. The room was clean, however the bathroom was small and the bed was not very comfortable. The location was good. Easy to take the bus into Old Town Edinburgh, as well as walk (approx. 20 min walk). Overall, would recommend as a clean, friendly, well priced B&B.

Nights at the Dorstan House
It is a great place to stay away from the city but it is just a short bus ride in and 3 different buses run many times daily close to the Royal Mile. The bus drivers were very helpful to remind us where to get off when we asked. The owner was very helpful and served a good breakfast. He was waiting for us when we arrived even though it was early in the day. It is a great way to experience a local neighborhood house. It is important to list correct gps instructions on the web site.
