Fabulous 8.8 From 31 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Weekend in Edinburgh
The Alpha Guest House was our base for a family birthday weekend in Edinburgh and the owners were wonderful in all aspects of the stay. From our arrival through to our departure after a great breakfast could not be faulted! I would definitely come back as the location, value for money and quality of the Guest House was excellent.
