Basic But Comfortable.
Our room was fine, but very basic, especially the toilet and shower which was tiny. The location was excellent and, given the price, the room was good value for money, I'd choose it again for another visit to Edinburgh.

Cheap And Cheerful
The Guesthouse was a good location - just a 30 minute walk into the centre and to Fringe festivities.

It had all the amenities it promised and felt secure.

My only fault was that the cleaning standard was not quite as high as I would have expected - not terrible, but not great either!

Comfortable Stay
I read a few reviews that were bad about this place but after staying here for 2 nights i didnt think it was too bad.i never had any problems or heard anything from the other guests. Our room was clean enough. If your saying longer than 2 days then i would get a hotel but if you are wanting just a cheap room for a couple of nights to lay your head down then i would say this place was fine.

Just Fine
We were heartily welcomed by Allan, who was so nice to provide us with a parking space for the motorbike. The place is clean and complete, and is less shabby than it may appear at first sight. We especially liked the high ceilings and location, which is walking distance from the main tourist attractions. And a fair price too.

Comfortable On A Budget
If you're looking for a budget place to stay in Edinburgh, Gilmore will suit you fine. Nice and friendly staff, clean room, comfortable bed, quiet neighbourhood, I slept all through the night without any disturbance. The bathroom is in the corridor and the rooms are equipped with bunk beds. If this is not something you like, then you need to find another place to stay. The bed was comfortable and the shared bathroom was clean and no queuing. Nice and comfy for a budget night!

Average Guest House
Very clean room and check-in was fast and efficient. The land lady was very helpful. The rooms, bed lined were clean. A minus is the shared toilet with shower.

Plus ponts are central location.

Attractions - Gilmore Rooms

Edinburgh Castle - Castle

Edinburgh Castle - Castle

Distance 0.54 miles (0.87 km)
A majestic landmark which dominates the capital city's skyline just as it has dominated Scotland's long and colourful history. Edinburgh Castle is the best known and most visited of Historic Scotland's buildings. Perched on an extinct volcano and offering stunning views, this instantly recognisable fortress is a powerful national symbol, and part of Edinburgh's World Heritage Site. A rich mix of architectural styles reflects the castle's complex history and role as both stronghold and seat of Kings. The tiny St Margaret's Chapel, Edinburgh's oldest building, dates from the 1100s.

Georgian House - Edinburgh - Historical Houses

Georgian House - Edinburgh - Historical Houses

Distance 0.76 miles (1.22 km)
The Georgian House is part of Robert Adam's masterpiece of urban design, Charlotte Square. It dates from 1796, when those who could afford it began to escape from the cramped, squalid conditions of Edinburgh's Old Town to settle in the fashionable New Town. The first owner, John Lamont, 18th Chief of the Clan Lamont, lived here with his family until 1815. The house's collections of beautiful china, shining silver, paintings and furniture all reflect the domestic surroundings and social conditions of the times. In the audio-visual room, video programmes describe the history of the New Town and in more dramatic form A Day in the Life of The Georgian House.

Gladstones Land - Edinburgh - Historical Houses

Gladstones Land - Edinburgh - Historical Houses

Distance 0.85 miles (1.36 km)
This is an example of an early high-rise which housed diverse social classes. The merchant and his family would have lived in two of the apartments while the others would have been rented to another merchant, a minister, a knight and a guild officer.Gladstone's Land provides a unique opportunity to experience how people lived and worked in Edinburgh's Old Town over 300 years ago. The merchant's home features a remarkable painted ceiling, wall decoration, fine furnishings and a fascinating kitchen. On the ground floor, shop booths have been recreated in their original setting, complete with merchandise.

Heart of Midlothian Football Club - Football Club

Heart of Midlothian Football Club - Football Club

Distance 0.86 miles (1.38 km)
Heart of Midlothian F.C. is a football club from Edinburgh, Scotland which plays in the Scottish Premier League. It is one of the two principal clubs in the city, the other being Hibernian. The club is managed by Graham Rix, appointed on November 7, 2005 following the departure of George Burley on October 22, 2005. Vladimir Romanov recently became the major shareholder of Hearts when he took over Chris Robinson's stake. Hearts (the common abbreviation) were founded in 1874 and are named after a dance hall, which in turn took its name from the novel The Heart of Midlothian by Sir Walter Scott. They initially played at the Meadows, Powburn and Powderhall before moving to the Gorgie area in 1881. They moved to their current Tynecastle site in 1886.

Museum of Scotland - Museum

Museum of Scotland - Museum

Distance 0.86 miles (1.38 km)
The Museum of Scotland is a striking and impressive achievement, beautifully framed by its surroundings, by Edinburgh's Old and New Towns, and the landscape beyond. From the Museum's roof-top garden visitors will have an unrivalled view of the historical as well as architectural context of the new building. Edinburgh Castle , Greyfriars Kirk, the Scott Monument , the spires and pinnacles of the city, the sea, and the hills beyond interact with the new museum, reinforcing its role as a central point in the nation's heritage, a protector of Scotland 's treasures. In 1991 architects Benson + Forsyth were selected as winners of the architectural competition to design the new Museum of Scotland .
