Owner is very friendly and welcoming. The room I had was not en suite although sharing a bathroom was not a problem for me. Use of free WiFi was really useful and a nice fast connection. Only thing I would suggest is asking what was wanted for breakfast in a little more detail. I opted for the cooked breakfast but... More

We stayed here for three nights and the room was great - large with a large bathroom and really clean. The breakfast was nice too and we had nothing to complain about, until we spent one night listening to someone playing guitar and violin(?) until past midnight in what sounded like the room next to us.

While the location may not be the best if you would like to check out the city center, regardless it is in a pretty convenient location overall (e.g. Holyrood park is close by - 10 minutes walk). The room sizes could be a bit bigger (even though we had our own bathroom), on the other hand it is clean and... More

When I travel I choose hotels first by location, and then by price and quality. My Dad booked the Panda Villa B&B for our trip to Edinburgh for two nights in August, 2013 and I was a little worried about its location outside of the city centre. My worries were for naught. Several bus routes stop just down the block,... More

We spent two nights at Panda Villa during our UK trip and were very much pleased. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly, shown to a very nice room and allowed to settle in. We quickly discovered the Panda Villa is very convenient to the bus line and to Arthur's Seat (an extinct volcano less than a half mile away that... More

We have just come back from a lovely few days staying here. We were in the Buddha room. Might not suit everybody as the bed is actually a sofa bed, but we loved it. The library of books, dvds and interesting bits and bobs have made me bow never to stay in a premier inn type place again. Martin was... More

Martin the host is very welcoming, he attends to all of your needs in a warm and respectful manner. He gives you all the information you need about Edinburgh. Panda Villa is almost like a spiritual retreat with lots of interesting art-work, loads of books to read and a huge collection of DVDs. The rooms are clean, the bathroom is... More

Room was very nice, clean & spacious for a B&B, with good size ensuite. We stayed with our daughter in a room with a good size queen bed & 1 single. The owner was helpful with local suggestions & maps. We had booked & paid for 2 nights, but unfortunately for personal reasons, we had to move on after 1... More
