Amaryllis Guest House, Edinburgh
Excellent4.0 / 5
The proprietors were lovely, breakfast was excellent (and filling!), the rooms were nice and cozy, and the hotel was located on a few minutes walk from where I needed to be. It's a bit of a hike to get here from the airport, but once there, it's quite easy to get out and into the city. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Decent guest house
Decent guest house. Pros - walkable to city centre, murrayfield or for restaurants and bars, room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast food options were good. Cons - breakfast operated within 45 min window only from 8.30-9.15 which isn't ideal for a weekend lie in. Electric shower in room intermittent with regards to decent pressure and hot water.

The picture of the Hotel encouraged us to choose it but when we arrived the overpowering smell of cigarette smoke was not nice! This was in our room too.As non smokers it was not appreciated.

Stunning, affordable and amazing facilities
For a short stay and with so much to do around Edinburgh, there could not be a better place for the price I paid. It is in a very quiet neighbourhood, within walking distance from the city centre, old town and all the main attractions.The room was really clean and comfortable with more room than I needed. I was expecting a single tiny bed but had a massive one. The bathroom was really clean. Staff were really friendly and attentive. The lady who cooked my breakfast both days was really friendly and hospitable. If I have to go up there for a short or long stay, I will look out for this same guest house again. It was just great.
