Arden Guest House
Very unsatisfactory
The room was not in the main house, the door to the room was in the porch, next to the outer door that remained unlock. it was small, poorly decorated, there were a lot of wires on show and extension leads. I woke on the first morning to no heating. It was advertised as B&B no mention of a 5 pound charge for a cooked breakfast. The WiFi was very poor the connect kept going down. I would not stay there again. The shower room was small the tape was loose and grouting in the shower was broken and flaking.

Lovely place - give it a try!
Really lovely people, lovely guest house, and Edinburgh stole our hearts. Was situated close to ERI which was very convenient but of course that means it is on the ambulance route, but to be honest the flashing lights didn't really bother us at all.

Very Good8.0
Nice and cosy
This was a business stay over prior to a site visit, and having done this many times in and around the Edinburgh area I can say this was spot on for the cost. Could benefit from an earlier breakfast start time as 8 am is when I need to be on site, but otherwise fine. Room warm as was the reception, great people with very suitable rooms.

Ideal position for hospital or bus route. 3 star!!
Very convenient for visiting the hospital where our daughter was having an operation. Also handy for the bus into city centre during the day. Staff were very pleasant and room was a good size for ourselves and grandson. Only problem was the wifi. Our grandson couldn't use it most of the time which at 16 is a major problem☹️☹️
