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.

Sherwood Guest House
Absolutely Perfect
Vivian will make you smile the minute you walk in the door! Easy access to town. And the best Pub in town in just around the corner. Ask Rick Steve’s. The Old Bell Inn. But Sherwood Guest House is beautiful and in a great location to the city. We will be back to visit and stay here.
