Edinburgh First Pollock Halls Bed & Breakfast Jun 13, 2016
Located near the Arthur's Seat, this place has a beautiful view (depending where your room faces). I believe it's more of a student accommodation than a B&B. The bedroom was spacious and brightly lit (big windows with good views). In rooms with no bathroom attached, there's a sink and a mirror so it is quite convenient if you just need to wash your hands/face. Bed was however, very squeeky. They'd better be changing them cos a small movement result in some squeaky sound and even in the wee hours of the night I could hear my neighbour's bed squeaking.

Shared bathrooms were of decent size and clean. Toiletries provided.

Staff were nice, friendly and professional.

Wifi has strong connectivity. There are also computers free for use and a limited number of free printing/photocopying.

Breakfast was provided and was like a full buffet with a whole lot of variety to choose from. Coffee / Tea/ Fruit Juices / even carbonated drinks. Eggs, Sausages, Muffins, Bread, Cereal, Yogurt, Hash Brown, Haggis, Vegetarian... Their fruits were like those you find in supermarket aisles!

It's pretty far to walk to the city but do-able. About 30 minutes walk, and lots of shops along the way. Otherwise, the bus is very convenient.

At night the heater is automatically turned off and can get really cold but I did ask for a portable heater.

Overall, a comfortable place and if they were to change the beds, it'll be perfect!
