What people are saying about Gilmore Rooms

Worth the money - Rating 4/5

Old house, needs a lick of paint but rooms are warm and the street quiet, even on a Saturday. What more do you expect for the money? Stop complaining and enjoy your stay in Edinburgh!

Great location for people on a budget - Rating 4/5

Nice room in a great location for people on a budget. Bedroom to bathroom ratio slightly high (one bathroom for 2 floors) but didn't have a problem getting showered when I needed to. Would recommend if you're on a budget.

We had a great stay - Rating 5/5

We stayed in the room for three and it was great. The rooms were clean, the staff were really friendly, the beds were comfortable, we had no trouble getting in or checking out and were given all the information we needed. It was a really good price as well, especially considering the location. It's a nice little walk into the city centre from there and there's also a regular bus. My mother and I both said we would definitely stay again.

upkeep - Rating 4/5

shower had no hanger for the shower head, and the heater would work inconsistently, though different settings were adjusted. on the evening of the second night there was only a quarter replacement roll of toilet tissue. the kitchen wasn't available to use, though I thought it was included in the description.needs we're singles pushed together, and construction on the front facade, though commenced after 10 am.everything appeared clean, and Mary the staff was cheerful and helpful. location was good.

Basic but comfortable. - Rating 4/5

Our room was fine, but very basic, especially the toilet and shower which was tiny. The location wasexcellent and, given the price, the room was good value for money, I'd choose it again for another visit to Edinburgh.

Reviewer:Timothy H | Wed 22nd Nov 2017 | 2 years ago

Cheap and cheerful - Rating 3/5

The Guesthouse was a good location - just a 30 minute walk into the centre and to Fringe festivities.It had all the amenities it promised and felt secure.My only fault was that the cleaning standard was not quite as high as I would have expected - not terrible, but not great either!

Reviewer:Liddy S | Fri 11th Aug 2017 | 2 years ago

Comfortable stay - Rating 3/5

I read a few reviews that were bad about this place but after staying here for 2 nights i didnt think it was too bad.i never had any problems or heard anything from the other guests. Our room was clean enough. If your saying longer than 2 days then i would get a hotel but if you are wanting just a cheap room for a couple of nights to lay your head down then i would say this place was fine.

Reviewer:YANG Z | Fri 28th Oct 2016 | 3 years ago

just fine - Rating 4/5

We were heartily welcomed by Allan, who was so nice to provide us with a parking space for the motorbike. The place is clean and complete, and is less shabby than it may appear at first sight. We especially liked the high ceilings and location, which is walking distance from the main tourist attractions. And a fair price too.

Reviewer:Oscar S | Mon 25th Jul 2016 | 3 years ago

Comfortable on a budget - Rating 4/5

If you're looking for a budget place to stay in Edinburgh, Gilmore will suit you fine. Nice and friendly staff, clean room, comfortable bed, quiet neighbourhood, I slept all through the night without any disturbance. The bathroom is in the corridor and the rooms are equipped with bunk beds. If this is not something you like, then you need to find another place to stay. The bed was comfortable and the shared bathroom was clean and no queuing. Nice and comfy for a budget night!
