  • Although there were "no smoking" signs throughout the building, there was strong…Oct 1, 2019
  • The place was alright, but slightly odd scent. Must be due to being old building. Sep 21, 2019

Not too bad.

Poor 2.0
Awful hotel stay...sorry hostel.
No house keeping during the stay in room or toilet Dirty wardrobe shelves not been dusted in ages,dusty skirting boards. Bed base badly stained, mattress uncomfortable due to springs sticking thru. No headboard and only one pillow each. Doors creaked,floorboards created...everything creaked. This is not 3* but 1* . Tea & coffee was provided but no milk. Worst thing of all was some guest were smoking in the hotel stairs and entrance area with the smell going up into the rooms. No smoke alarms in our room (2) we have been in touch with Edinburgh council already about the issue of smoke alarms.

Poor 2.0
Not cleaned and very uncomfortable night's stay
On the positive, great position, good value and potentially a really nice guest house. But our room hadn't been cleaned, we had no towels or tea/coffee, and worst of all the mattress was probably the worst we've attempted to sleep on. Staying in room 8 at present will ruin your stay in Edinburgh- the mattress is that bad. Honestly with a commitment to clean and new mattresses, this place has potential but right now, I'd advise you avoid, however attractive the price is.

Exceptional 10.0
Family of 5 overnight stay, family room
I was very happy with my stay at Thornfield Guest House. On arrival the lady who met us in reception was polite, helpful and friendly. The room for 5 people was spacious, clean and equipped with TV, wifi, kettle, tea, coffee. The guest house is within walking distance of the city centre. There was also off street parking at the rear however the access road to the rear parking was quite narrow so maybe unsuitable for some large vehicles. Overall I found the Thornfield Guest house to be great for my overnight stay with family and I would be happy to stay there again.

Very good 8.0
Good experience. More suitable for a group of 3-4 people on budget. Toilet was clean which is really important for me. Beds were not that great and sunk in on sitting or lying down. Location was excellent as you can get a bus every other minute to the old town about 5 minutes away
