Rob and I really enjoyed our stay at the Rainbow Hermitage. The accommodations were very comfortable and clean. Eric was a terrific host. Very welcoming. The location is an easy walk to the shore where you can find nice restaurants.
My fiancé and I had a great time staying with Eric. The room and B&B were just as described, clean, comfortable, and easy to get into city centre from. Plus the bed was crazy comfortable after a long trip!
We had lost our luggage along the way and Eric spent quite a bit of time helping us locate and retrieve it, which was very appreciated. I'm not sure we would have gotten it back had Eric not stepped in to help.
We had a great stay at Erics Place. The communication before the arrival was always very prompt and really nice. The room is as shown on the photos and very comfortable. The breakfast was just wonderful and plenty.
It was a pleasure to stay there and we would recommend it to others.
Very nice stay at Eric and Alessandros place: They were great hosts, helpful and caring. The place is well situated and nice. We would come again.

Absolutely perfect host. The room looks exactly like the picture. Eric's breakfast is really delicious. The location is convenient to discover Edinburgh. We could not say any bad things about the house. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Edinburgh again:)
