          David from Australia stayed at Thrums May 2010. The rooms were spotlessly clean. Kareem and his team were most helpful. The breakfast is adequate to start you on the days activities. This is perfect for a sleepover and to use as a base to explore London by public transport..

          The staff at the hotel were excellent, from Reception until departure. We had two problems with facilities in our room and both wre attended to immediately. One of them required an after-hours call out of an electrician. We were very impressed with the hotel staff's response and friendly attitude.

          One of the stuff members (receptionist) was really helpfull and nice, the location was perfect and the room confortable and cleaned.

          The breakfast staff was not really welcoming.

          very good for railway,sights,shops,castle,in fact the city is at your feet. neat wee car park at rear, good bus service at front

          a bar would have been handy! with supper service, traveling all day one just wants to shower and rest.

          Value for money is ok in rather pricy Edinburgh; cooked breakfast; nice winter garden; welcoming personnel;

          No WIFI in the rooms; no telephone in my room; furniture somewhat worn out;

          Visited family

          The decor was a bit past its best - gave a grubby appearance

          Our welcome by Sam (evening shift) was really professional, courteous and friendly without over doing it. He was flexible and relaxed, gave us detailed information on eating places in the neighbourhood and was patient with our inefficient use of the door keypad! We also really enjoyed the young duo who cooked and served breakfast and we liked the cosy atmosphere of the conservatory/dining area. We liked the quirky decor, eg bright colours and lots of wood, keeping the original character of the house.Initial contact with David to check on our booking (by phone) was very helpful and friendly.

          Ummm, the decor was tired and it didn't feel really clean in the corners. The carpet in the second house (room 16) seemed grubby. The spare blanket (one of them) was stained. (I left it out for the housekeeping team with a note). It is very noisy at the front of the house. Luckily local knowledge warned me to ask for a back room, which worked well, although originally we were shown room 10 on the front. Fortunately, Sam (above) was fine about us moving to room 16. Grounds needed a spring work-over.

          location and car park

          very poor room - everything in the room very old and not clean, breakfast very basic

          The only thing that I found lacking in my room was heat. The radiator in the room , "when it came on""was insufficient to heat the room. The heater in the fireplace did not work and the towel rail in the bathroom only came on .for a little while in the morning and not at all on Saturday morning

          The staff were friendly towards guests, cooked breakfast was great. Hotel location was great for the Royal Mile, less than 30 mins walk.
