Expert review of 94DR
A period house on the city's south side run by a couple whose eye for detail is second to none. Lush bedrooms, a lounge with honesty bar and the new addition of a delightful orangery where you can enjoy one of chef Paul's cracking breakfasts.
On Dalkeith Road, a main road leading from the south of the city into town; it's an easy place from which to get taxis or buses into the centre. 94DR has a good selection of bikes which are complimentary if you are feeling energtic and would like to explore the city on two wheels courtesy of your thighs.
Six doubles all named after whiskies and one wee room - 'wee dram' - which is kitted out for kids with bunk beds, games, DVDs and and an Xbox so you can get some peace too. Vast beds, power showers, underfloor heating, White Company toiletries, luxury cotton bedding, excellent views and a feeling of tranquility permeates the whole place.
The 94DR lounge is a laid back spot to chill and comes complete with an honesty bar, which is a nice touch. The Orangery oerlooks the garden and is the perfect light bright airyspot to sample the great breakfasts which utilise local organic produce.
Paul used to work for Howies Restaurant as a chef so knows how to flop up some good food. If you want to hire the whole place or arrange a seven course banquet, it is all available by arrangement. The motto here is nothing is too much trouble - so you call the shots.
Bicycles are available for guests to explore the area by pedal power - free. There's free WiFi, plus the aforementioned Xbox, games, books and DVDs for the younger members of the family.
Smiling, helpful and fun. These two are just made for the world of hosting and looking after guests. They do it with aplomb and will organise anything you need during your stay with a smile.
Fun loving travellers. Those who appreciate the good things in life. Late night party animals. Retail therapy fans. The girls. The boys. The whole jing bang.
