Positive Reviews

5 minutes from Arthur’s Seat.

MW Townhouse is situated about five minutes away from Holyrood Park and the famed Arthur’s Seat. The 250-meter-high hill offers stunning views over Edinburgh and is a must-visit site for any first-time visitor to the city. Some guests report that one of the B&B’s rooms offers a view of Arthur’s Seat itself.

Walking distance from Edinburgh city center.

Many guests praise the B&B for being located within walking distance of central Edinburgh and all of its famous landmarks. The likes of Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and Princes Street are all less than a mile away.

Conveniently positioned on bus route.

Less mobile guests can also enjoy the B&B’s location, thanks to the nearby bus stop. No fewer than four bus routes pass by MW Townhouse, making it easy for guests to explore the city without having to tire themselves out walking.

Negative Reviews

Staff not always available.

While many guests enjoy their stay at MW Townhouse, others report that the lack of on-site staff can prove frustrating. The B&B is a small, family-run business, and often the owners are elsewhere. Guests are required to telephone staff if they require assistance, which can result in a lengthy wait.

Not all rooms feature ensuite bathroom.

Some guests are disappointed to learn that at least one of the guestrooms does not feature an ensuite bathroom. Reports of guests making a trip across the landing to an unattached private bathroom have been received.

Property can prove a little chilly.

A number of guests report feeling cold upon entering the B&B. According to reports, the property is only heated at certain times, which means that rooms can become cold when the heating is not on. This problem is heightened during the winter months.
