Lovely quiet B&B with fantastic breakfast!
Comfortable single room with ensuite toilet and shower. Very quiet. Owners are very friendly and efficent; breakfast was really great and freshly prepared. You mark your selection the night before. (hot and cold options availble) The city centre is around a 10 minute bus ride from the stop 2 mins away or around 30 mins if you don't mind walking. If you fancy a swim, drop by the nearby 50m commonwealth pool which is awsome! Lovely stay, thanks so much!

10/10 would recommend
Dorstan Guest House is absolutely amazing! The owners are lovely and very helpful. Breakfast is fabulous! Additionally, you have Holyrood Park as your back garden, and with a half hour walk you're on the Royal Mile. Our room was spacious, with comfy beds, and the area is quiet. 10/10 would recommend! Richard and family/staff, thanks so much for our wonderful stay.

Lovely guest house and hosts
The hosts were the loveliest and most accommodating people I have met. The breakfast was perfect every morning and the rooms were serviced every day. For the first of January they provided a buffet of fruit and baked amazing baked good all day for everyone to have as breakfast or a snack whatever time they woke up (and the traditional whiskey and shortbread Scottish new year treat!) The contributed into making my trip to Edinburgh the best I have taken in a long time. I will definitely go again if I return to the city.
