Thanks Anne for the last minute booking. Anne's place is less than a £10 taxi away from the city centre, I believe a bus also runs directly there. The room was large enough to comfortably sleep two and the whole place was very cleen. Anne was really helpful and let us check in very early, she also took the time to give us some good pointers about the city. cheers

Our room was living room without room Key not a bedroom. Acceptable price during festival. We took some times to find the place and the key box. A place for those who just want to find a place to sleep.

Anne was very friendly and communicative but we never saw her. It was very kind form here to let us check out late. The house is far from the city centre, you have to take a bus for about 30 minutes.

Anne's place is close to transports and easily accessible, we slept in the living room but it was arranged just like a private room and the bed was really comfortable! It's too bad we only stayed for one night, we would have loved to get to know Anne a little more : she is a lovely host!

We needed a last minute place to stay in Edinburgh on Saturday night and Anne was very helpful and took us in last minute! Very fast with her replies. The place was clean and there was no noise. The bathroom was spacious and clean as well.

We were very late in booking, but thankfully Anne responded immediately and was in constant communication which was awesome. The space itself was nice and clean and other guests were very nice as well. It's a good place just to crash after a long day!

Welcome to the Pilton Hilt-on

"Come as a stranger, stay as a guest and leave as a friend".

I am a fun loving individual and enjoy having guests stay in my humble abode. The flat is less than 30 minutes from the city centre in North Edinburgh, close to the Firth of Forth. There is an excellent bus service with many choices of bus routes and the flat is close to local shops and takeaways.

The best way to The Pilton Hilt-on from the airport is either the 200 airport bus to Muirhouse Shopping Centre or a taxi. Lothian Buses has a fantastic website so you can check timetables at your leisure. A single trip ticket is £2 and a day saver is £4 on the local buses, the airport bus fare is slightly more. A taxi to my home from the airport, or the city centre, is between £12-£18. Travel Easy - (phone number hidden) is the cheapest but there is also Capital Cabs - (phone number hidden).

I have wifi which you can access with a code which you will find in the kitchen. I am happy for you to use my internet, to check out information and confirm travel details and check out attractions, but please do not use it for inappropriate sites.

I must highlight that I do not always stay in the flat due to the popularity of my property on airbnb and the fact that I have guests staying in all three rooms at times. If I am not able to be at home to open the door in person then I do have a key code box which is changed frequently. Please just contact me prior to arrival and I can let you know what the code is. I will try and be there in person though but this is not always possible and rather than have you waiting around in town I am sure you would like to just settle in and get comfortable. Once you have let yourself in please put the keys back in the key code box. You will find your own keys in the door of your room which are yours for the duration of your stay. You will have 3 keys, 1 for the stair door, 1 for the front door and 1 for your bedroom. Please have consideration of others in the block by ensuring the doors are locked. The stair door this will happen automatically as with the bedroom door (be careful not to lock yourself out your room). The front door you need to lift the handle up high before turning the key to lock the door. Closing the door is not enough!!! Please check before leaving you have not left the door unlocked by testing if the handle goes down. If locked correctly the handle will not allow you to lower and open the door.

I am happy that people use the facilities in my home to cook and you are welcome to help yourself to food, etc but request that you clean up after yourselves. With regards to washing clothes, I am happy to do this for you to prevent over or under filling the machine, please just ask and I will assist you at an added cost of £3.

The toilet is a slow fill so if it is in frequent use it does not always flush instantly. This is easily resolved by filling up the cistern with a bottle of water from the bathroom taps. This can occur at times as there is only one toilet/bathroom for a flat with three rooms.

You are welcome to stay in a home which is "modest and honest" I love having guests around and as a hardened traveller myself try to provide the environment I loved when I was in a strange place for the first time. You can be assured of receiving a warm welcome at some point from me. I offer you the use of my home and the room you book while you are in Edinburgh which is different from the experience you will have in a fully serviced B&B or guest house.

I hope that you have a great time in Edinburgh and if you choose to stay with me then I look forward to sharing your travel adventure and getting to know you.
