"El mejor lugar para moverte por la zona e ir a tu aire."
Mi familia y yo encontramos una casa muy limpia, acogedora y con todo lo que puedas necesitar para sentirte como en tu propia casa. Ann tiene de todo, incluso enchufes adaptadores, especias en la cocina, paraguas... Ann y Gordon fueron unos estupendos y amabilísimos anfitriones, estaban ahí para cualquier duda o indicación. El pack de bienvenida fue estupendo y nos vino muy bien. La zona es genial para ir con niños, pues el parque, el super, restaurantes y una gasolinera están todos muy cerquita. Sin duda volvería a Come Ben the Hoose y ojalá hubiese podido quedarme más tiempo. Gracias por todo.
Thank you. It was lovely meeting you and your lovely family and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Edinburgh and Scotland. We hope you will come back again. Best Ann
