Sherwood Guest House
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.

Sherwood Guest House
The perfect place to stay in Edinburgh
What a lovely guest house this is. The Georgian building is fantastic and Vivienne has done a fantastic job with the house. We received such great hospitality and the children will never forget our fantastic break at the Sherwood guest house. We are a family of 4 and we stayed comfortably in a family room. Breakfast was great and something for everyone. It is a leisurely 15 minute walk into Edinburgh city centre and very simple. I would highly recommend eating at the Salisbury Arms (just round the corner) as it was first class and very welcoming for kids. This is the perfect guest house for a visit to Edinburgh and we would give it 10/10.

Very friendly and clean accommodation
Vivienne the owner was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay, the continental style breakfast was very nice and they had a good selection on offer. We would stay there again. Very handy for The Queens Hall.

Fantastic Guest House- great rooms and service
I travel a lot, both for business and pleasure, but this was the best Guest House I've ever stayed in. The triple room we booked was spacious, very clean, nicely decorated- and the facilities were brilliant (fridge and microwave in the room, bottled water, a good selection of teas and coffees, sweets and biscuits). We were really impressed by the continental breakfast served- the choice was great, definitely much better than in a majority of hotels. The service was also really friendly- I can truly recommend Sherwood Guest House, we will definitely be back.
