Good Hotel Guide Review

The well-planted front courtyard marks out this friendly B&B, an easy walk, past the Meadows, to the university. Owners Franco and Lynne Galgani have restored many of the original features in their Victorian terraced house, including the tall windows in most of the bedrooms. The best rooms have a four-poster bed, a sofa and an espresso machine, but all accommodation is homely and comfortable, with oriental rugs on wood floors, perhaps, and artwork on the walls. A whisky nightcap is offered before bedtime. ‘Proper breakfasts’ are served on crisp white linen. Vegetarian and vegan options are available, plus a daily special – venison sausages, French toast, haggis. Frequent bus service to most destinations in the city.
