      Very friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble. On day of leaving I had a flat battery and Jim immediately fetched his car to give me a jump start.

      Room was alittle tired and requires redecoration after water ingress.

      Very comfy bed, decent shower and really friendly and helpful owner (Cath). Just lovely.

      The breakfast was plentiful and well cooked. The room was comfortable with a decent sized TV.

      The room was at the front of the house so the road noise was significant the curtains did not provide full blackout. The shower looked great but lacked water pressure and heat variation and because the shower screen was too small, water ended up all over the floor. The bathroom mirror was too low. The duvet was too hot for the weather conditions and there was no top sheet.

      The Hostess was extremely friendly and helpful.The room was of an excellent standard. The breakfast was exceptionally good! The bacon was locally sourced and delicious, and the toast.... Most places you go they give you sliced bread in a rack and by the time you go to eat it its like cold cardboard. This was real bread cut into decent slices and it stayed warm so that the butter melted . We would definitely recommend this hotel and if up there again will return!

      NOthing - it was really good.

      I was very pleased with facilitys at the alba house. The breakfast was also brilliant.

      Could not fault anything with the hotel, The staff were brilliant and the rooms were great value for money.

      We liked everything. The owners are fantastic, nice and accommodating people, they made us feel at home so much we extended our stay and cancelled the rest of the trip. The rooms are very big, all rooms have private bathrooms and you're only 10 minute bus ride from where all the action is. I can't recommend it highly enough.

      Very friendly welcome. Cath gave us loads of information about buses and getting around. Our room was very spacious and really lovely decorated. The en-suite had not long been done out and was very modern and the shower was fabulous! Lots of choice for breakfast which was served very quickly and was really lovely. No complaints there. Cath is always on hand to help or for any queries/problems you may have.A Really beautiful house in a good location for getting into the city centre in just ten minutes on the bus. If you prefer to walk it takes about half an hour (and I'm quite a slow walker). It's a straight road so it's easy to get there. We are a couple on a weekend break to see the sights of Edinburgh and this place was perfect for us. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend!!

      The very pleasant nature and real helpfulness of the proprietors. Good cooking, and elegant atmosphere was its character.

      Alba House is on a main road out of Edinburgh and on a bus route so access to the city is easy even if you don't have a car. It's also only a five minute walk to the nearest supermarket and 10 minutes to a variety of restaurants. There's onsite parking for 4 or 5 cars. Hearty breakfast. Very helpful and friendly proprietor.
