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.

Fabulous place to stay!
A fabulous place to stay for a trip to Edinburgh - the pictures don’t do it justice. Amazing hosts and fantastic breakfast to start you on your way!! As there were four of us we used taxis to get into and out of Edinburgh town centre as there was hardly any stun price bus bus stop was only round the corner. Would definitely return for another visit!!

Cracking stay.
Friendly place great breakfast with plenty of choice. Good transport links into the centre. It's not the Ritz but more than adequate for a couple of nights exploring. Will certainly consider using again if needing a place close to town.
