Shanna was warm and welcoming and the room was perfect, just like the photo in fact. The room was spacious and light and an extra blanket in case I felt cold in the night. A good selection of teas provided in the room. Breakfast was just as I make it at home and I felt really comfortable throughout my stay as did my friend. Thank you Shanna.

Great stay - great family! Shanna extended her home and hospitality like I was part of the family. I was speaking to her about my bad knees and came back to find a massive pillow in the room to lift my legs. Its this little things that matter and the Song family definitely look after their guests. Added benefit - the location is ideal.

Instructions given to arrive at residence was concise and it was easy to navigate from Town Centre to the house. Short ride with public buses to and fro. Really beautiful residence with wonderful hosts. Breakfast was good and the chats we had were even better. Would really recommend Shanna's residence for the best way to enjoy your stay in Edinburgh. Every detail is well taken care of by our hosts. My wife Amelia and i enjoyed our short stay of 2N there and we wish we had stayed longer! Thanks for the good memories!

Staying in Shanna's home exceeded all of my expectations. The room was cozy and very clean. She included a kettle and choices of tea and coffee in the room. Towels provided and a wardrobe to hang your clothing. The bathroom was pristine and modern. You share with the guests in the second guest room which is no problem. Breakfast is provided - a lovely fresh fruit bowl with choice of cereal and a yogurt. She'll also ask your preference on coffee or tea. Shanna and her family are incredibly friendly and offer advice on any questions you might have about exploring Edinburgh. It's a very convenient bus ride to the Royal Mile. £1.50 for single ride or £4 for the day. A great deal in my book. No problems coming in and out at any hour as long as you're quiet. I highly recommend staying here!

Response from Shanna:
Hilary, it was such a pleasure to have you and Wendy stay at our house, it was great to hear both of you and the other guests laughing and chatting at breakfast time, the atmosphere was wonderful. Thanks for your detailed and accurate comment! Sadly as I have found, some people don't bother reading the description on my page when they book my room and come expecting "cooked breakfast and ensuite" when I clearly state "continental breakfast and shared bathroom between my 2 guest rooms". Your comment is very much appreciated, hopefully people will read your review and get a better picture before they make their reservation with me. Enjoy the rest of your time in the UK and hope to see you and Wendy again.
