A double bedroom with your own private en -suite facilities (toilet and walk-in shower).

Guests are provided with a choice of the following for their breakfast.
1. A selection of popular cereals. (cool or hot milk is available )
2. Home made bread, freshly baked for each guest to enjoy at breakfast. Together with the options of jam, honey and peanut butter. (A toaster is also available).
3. A selection of fresh fruit.
4 . There is also plenty tea and coffee on hand for guests to enjoy.

The space
The spacious double bedroom leads onto your own private en-suite toilet and shower facilities.
Within the bedroom there is also a large built-in wardrobe with ample hangers for your clothes. Together with a set of drawers and bedside cabinets.
There is also a bedside lamp for guests who want to have a wee read before going off to sleep.
My home can be considered a house of two halves.
One half where I sleep and have my own toilet and shower facilities. The other half is where guests can feel at home with their own bedroom and en-suite toilet.
Between the two sleeping areas is the communal lounge. This then ensures that the guests can feel they have their own private part of the house to themselves.
The kitchen area and lounge are shared, but from my experience I find that the guests utilise the kitchen quite freely with minimum distraction from me.
The guest's bedroom also has two doors separating it from the kitchen, which ensures that there is maximum noise reduction from the kitchen if the guest should wish to have some quiet time. (e.g. a long lie in bed or early to bed).

Guest access
There is a large spacious kitchen with a large dining table where guests can enjoy their breakfast.
Some guests who are here studying, take advantage of using the kitchen dining table in the evening to lay out their laptop, books etc and concentrate in the quiet atmosphere.
Others come back from the busy town centre with their takeaway meal to enjoy in the kitchen with a relaxing drink during the evening.
Please note that due to insurance restrictions there is no cooking facilities for guests. However there is a microwave available for guests to use.
I've also had some guests who wanted to watch a particular sporting event on TV and they can watch this in the lounge.
Guests can also take advantage of sitting out in the garden or decking (weather permitting).

Other things to note
On your arrival after showing you around my home and giving you a key. I will provide you with the following maps.
Map of the Royal Mile and the popular visitor attractions.
Map of the town centre and surrounding areas with visitor attractions.
Map of the bus routes from my home to town.
Map of the local vicinity displaying a wide variety of good restaurants and pubs available just a short walk away. Including the bus stop locations for catching a bus to town and where to get off when returning home.
Also an Edinburgh bus tour brochure with discounts for various establishments.
