Central location, easy to find, above baqr/restaurant with high quality food. There was a mix up with the bed situation in that as it was booked through hostel bookers was done as 2 single beds instead of a double, so they gave us a bottle of prosecco as an apology

The rooms were decorated very tastefully and were to a very high standard. The staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful and friendly. We had a fantastic breakfast and served by a lovely waitress who ensured we had everything we need. The restaurants/bars were just a short walk away. We would definitely stay here if we visit Edinburgh again.

The breakfast is fantastic! It is little bit far to the centre, but there is a great park with big hills nearby. Ideal for sports and you have a grat view from the hill to Edinburgh.

We booked for a rugby international and can say our stay was very enjoyable. The safe were predominantly friendly and helpful and the atmosphere in the hotel was a good one. The reception staff, in particular Mairi-Ann, were excellent and made every effort to ensure our booking was handled efficiently even when I tried to add an additional visitor for our stay... no easy task during a busy period!

The girl at reception was very helpful and freindly. It's in a very nice, safe, convenient area. The room was comfortable and as you might expect. A fridge, and lots of tea/coffee with the kettle were handy in the room. I would recommend the hostel to a friend.

Secure, they always give you the key and ask your name. They changed the towels every day. The room was warm all the time. They have coffees and biscuits in the room.

This hotel is perfctly comfortable and has a bit of character. because they were full for the first 2 nights of our stay, we were upgraded to their 4 star sister hotel around the corner, which was fantastic! huge, luxurious etc. The Ballantrae was very good for the price. No idea why some of the other reviewers are a bit negative! I am generally quite fussy and would definitely stay there again.

Great place with best connection to the airport and city centre. Lovely rooms - simple and clean. Staff was limited (seen actually only 1 person), but nevertheless everything went smooth. We actually expected less for this amount of money and was positively surprised. It is possible to borrow (for free) ironing board and iron. Hairdryer, tv with dvd also available in the room.

I like how friendly was the Spanish guy at the reception he was very welcoming and trustworthy. He was always very polite and We had the luck of he speaking Spanish which was even more helpful. the other staff was very nice as well. The property is a very nice and clean building, maybe because it was not a high season it was very quiet and peaceful.

The proprietor, Lee, was very friendly and accommodating, and the bathroom was spotless--I've never seen a cleaner toilet in my life. Inverkeithing station was only about 5 minutes away, connecting us to anywhere in Scotland via Edinburgh. Excellent value, highly recommended.
