Great place to stay, great host, great location
We stayed at this lovely b and b for a family trip to Edinburgh. Host was GREAT and approachable and gave good advice on places to go, and how to use local bus service. Location perfect as you could walk into the centre, but also a bus stop just outside. Family room was nice size, and whole place very clean. Breakfast was nice too. Overall a great place and would definitely recommend.

Lovely comfortable stay at Sherwood
Vivienne - the owner of Sherwood House went out of her way to make us welcome, giving advice on the best restaurants in the area and helping with other arrangements. The quality of the furnishings are exceptional and she has put so much thought into making sure that all a guests needs are met. Even an ironing board , hot chocolates , sweets, hairdryer and lovely shampoos etc. The breakfast was continental but the range of fruit, meats , jams etc were very good - and served in a lovely breakfast room. Should our daughter decide to go to Edinburgh uni - which is why we were visiting - we would not hesitate to make Sherwood House our place to stay when we visit.

By all means, stay with Vivienne at Sherwood.
Vivienne has done a wonderful job with the Sherwood Guest House. Completely renovated, the room was large, comfortable, and had the services of a large hotel but with a personal touch. The neighborhood is great as well, especially when you want a local restaurant selection and not the craziness of downtown Edinburgh. I highly recommend it!!
