Edinburgh Guest house
Lovely guest house and very sizeable rooms. A little dated and dusty but cannot fault the location.

Nice accommodation at a good price.
Nice accommodation at a good price. It may be useful to mention the Guesthouse does not have a kitchen and does not serve breakfasts, but plenty of options/restaurants closeby.

Nice location
Good place to stay, near to Edinburgh City, lots of places to see near the hotel. Spacious room, with free parking though it’s a bit hard to park but helpful.Easy checked in and checked out. The shower is not great though but we’re happy with our stay, will recommend to our friends to stay here.
