Richard is very nice and responsive. We had smooth communication prior to my arrival and during my stay. The room is exactly as described. Breakfast was provided and the kitchen is well-equipped; we can use the toaster, electric kettle and microwave. Bus stop is only within five minute walking distance. Really great value for money. I will definitely recommend his place to my friends visiting the town.

Tourists shoud consider to be in Richard´s house because it is near the bus station, supermarkets, shoppings, restorants, pubs, etc. Richard can help you to find interesting places in Edimburgh. He is also a very polite and friendly man.

I was a colonial Scot who has come home to roost in Edinburgh, which I love and am proud of, especially this area of Leith, which has more Michelin Star restaurants than the rest of Edinburgh, Ocean Terminal shops and, the beautiful Waters of Leith but is only 15 minutes from the City Centre.
Just ask me for tips and places to go and you will too.
There's a bicycle you can borrow to explore the network of disused railway lines all over Edinburgh and a tennis racket for the local; courts.
I'm easy-going and like meeting people so, roll-up !
