Stayed for 2 nights at the end of our Scotland tour. In a quieter suburb of Edinburgh but city centre is easily accessible by bus. Lovely hosts very friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 1 with a king size bed, which was lovely but filled the room. The bathroom was small with a small sink. Having said that we... More

What a fantastic wee bed and breakfast , Our host Rhona makes you feel like you've known her for years. Will definitely be back. The house has a lovely homely feel to it, very relaxed atmosphere and great value for money

We had a split stay at the Auld Reekie Guest House during our trip to Scotland this spring. I had booked the Guest House on a whim and am oh-so-glad that I did! Rhona and Brian made us feel very welcome and even let us store our extra luggage there so we wouldn't have to pack it along on our... More

Upon arrival at Auld Reekie we were greeted by Rhonda who made us feel so welcome having travelled from London to York to Edinburgh! The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Rhonda recommended a very nice restaurant on Saturday night, Howies restaurant, where we ate beautifully. The guest house is well located to the Centre. Breakfast is freshly served in... More

Stayed here once before due to its location and price, but I was expecting something average due to being inexpensive but it was far from average it was comfortable,clean,warm,friendly and the breakfast was hot,tasty, and very filling. The owners could not do enough for us this is my second stay and I will come back A five star service :)

Chatting to Rhona on Friday morning I realised that I have been staying in the Auld Reekie Guest House since 1998! Rhona and Brian have always maintained a very high standard - the rooms are spotless, nicely furnished and the beds are extremely comfortable. There are generous quantities of tea and coffee on the hospitality tray and good quality toileteries... More

Upon arriving, we were greeted by the very friendly and chatty Rhona who made us feel very welcome. We were handed our key and told the WiFi Code almost right away. Breakfast was arranged at the civilised time of 8:45 9:15 ish ("People don't get up!" said Rhona). The room was spotless, comfy and simply decorated, which is perfect for... More

The owner/manager Rhona is very sweet and welcoming, calls you "my darling" when you arrive and offers you tea. Asks you about anything you need and is very helpful. Gives you good directions and tells you how to reach the city centre (Bus No. 7), where to get off, the fare, etc. It's a quick bus ride to the restaurants,... More

We loved every moment of our stay at the Auld Reekie. There are lots of lovely touches in the rooms and Rhona is really friendly and helpful. Our 1year old really enjoyed his experience too and loved Rhona! Nothing was too much trouble even heating up milk for our little boy's breakfast. We would defiantly come back.
