Polly and her family are very friendly and hospitable. The place is quite close to the city center and the room is very spacious. We had problems reaching Polly via phone and even airbnb app though, for some reason she didn't get all those communications so check-in was a little bit of a hassle. But other than that we had a great stay. Thanks very much for hosting us!

We were made to feel very welcome by Polly. She allowed us to use the kitchen, the room is very large and there was enough storage for clothes. She went above and beyond by providing little things such as a hair-dryer, earbuds, tea, coffee and a little kettle. The flat is in a great location within 10 minute walking distance to the city centre, as well as Stockbridge. Bus stops are just outside to head into the centre or Leith.

The place is even nicer than it looks on the pictures on Airbnb. Very cosy and clean. We had a smooth contact with Polly before our stay. Fred (son) was our kind host at the appartment. Every "touristic must see" within walking distance.
