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.

On Arriving at Auld Reekie guest house, we were greeted by Rhona and Brian who made us feel at home straight away. The guest house is beautiful inside and out, decorated and cleaned to an exceptionally high standard. Auld Reekie isn't far from the city at just over a mile away, but in a quieter location for having a peaceful... More

I stayed at the Auld Reekie Guest House for the week-end and had a great stay. The comments written by other guests correctly reflect Rhona's friendliness and warmth, as well as the logistics of staying here. I would only make two minor comments or suggestions. The heater is not on in the afternoons and comes on a quite late in... More

10 mins South of the city cente by bus or a 20 minute walk, Auld Reekie is in the relaxed Newington area. Our top floor room had tv, tea/coffee and an excellent shower. The place is spotless and lovely and warm too. Breakfast in the front room was very good indeed (a genuine cooked Scottish breakfast) and owner Rhona is... More

We stayed for a long weekend and thanks to our hosts we had everything we needed - great French toast for breakfast, a room large enough for us and a three-year old boy who likes to jump around and a bus stop round the corner to go to all the places we wanted to see. There's a nice Indian down... More
