Stayed as a 3 for two nights. Firstly this hotel was chosen on location and price so not expecting a luxury stay! We were put in a family room but then moved to another room, but we didn't mind.
Location superb and excellent value considering proximity to centre.
The decor was deliberately (?) dated, which is to be either loved or hated. The rooms look something out of a some cult 70's horror film! Fortunately we loved the charm.
Owners were very welcoming and extremely nice to us.
Breakfasts were excellent. Also worth noting that the Power showers are superb!
Only slight issue for me was the beds are quite hard, but that may have just been an unlucky one, as the other people in the party slept okay.
Very enjoyable stay. Would recommend.

Had read some bad reviews for this accommodation but the price was good so booked anyway. Arrived early but really nice staff let us into the gated, covered car park. Room was spotless, and shared kitchen was well equipped and quite clean. We were in Edinburgh for the festival and location was good (about 20 mins walk to the main festival venues). Would definitely use this accommodation again.

People reviewing on-line appear to give quite 'picky' reasons for a poor rating but my partner and I genuinely don't recommend staying here given the quality available elsewhere for much less money. At ultimately £100 a night cost for two people including breakfast, we expected much better quality. Other 4 Star B&B's in Scotland we stayed in that week were some £20-£25 a night cheaper with better quality and sized breakfasts (i.e. not burnt toast as on last morning and not the cheapest possible bread), room cleaned daily, toiletries provided in the bathroom and an information pack/booklet in the room plus someone actually greeting you on arrival to show you to your room (all of which lacking at Craigmoss but seemingly standard at all others). Our separate bathroom was clean enough but the shower never got hot no matter what setting, very disappointing for the price. Breakfast was served an hour later on the Sunday morning but there were no signs to advise you of this at all anywhere, which was very unhelpful and meant we as guests could have had a lie-in. In the early hours, my partner was woken up by someone knocking loudly on our neighbours door, yet when mentioned the owner offered no apology appearing very dismissive stating they didn't hear it. Didn't feel like we were genuine 'guests' at this guesthouse and the 'attentive, more personalised service', as required by the Scottish Tourist Board' 4 stars, was invisible.
