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.

Loved it
Vivienne was wonderful host. The house was comfortable, and spotless. The breakfasts were wonderful. We met other lovely travellers there. Vivienne would help us book taxis etc. I really recommend if you are coming to Edinburgh, make this your home away from home.
