Enjoyed our two nights at Martin's. Denise the owner was very helpful and welcoming. Good breakfast and the room was nice, spacious and comfy (we were in room 4 since we were 5 people). Place is 20 min walk from the castle and 5 min walk from some good restaurants. Bus also stops almost in front the guest house.

Very nice place to stay in Edinburgh. Very warm environment and very clean rooms as well as communal areas. The breakfast was excellent and the breakfast area very cozy as well. Would definitely recommend and come back during our next stay in the city.

Lovely rooms with homely touches!! Would also recommend the apartment restaraunt a short walk away and dominion cinema on a rainy day!!!

We recently stayed here and were amazed at the very central location with parking, which is a big problem in Edinburgh.The owner Denise gave a very warm welcome,and informed us that as a larger room was available she had up-graded us at no extra cost,which is very rare nowadays.The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice.We will not be staying...

I highly recommend this b&b. A very accommodating hostess and delicious breakfast! Easy walk to central Edinburgh or quick access to bus right outside if you aren't keen in walking. Spacious, clean rooms with all amenities. Highly recommend!

Visited Martin's Guest House in the April holidays for a quiet 3 days away. The location is fantastic as Edinburgh town centre is 15 mins walk or about a 5 minutes drive. Free parking is always excellent however, you can fit 3 cars maximum in the parking lot (only 2 if someone with 5 brain cells parks near the entrance).... More

This is an absolutely wonderful Guest House. We stayed for 2 nights and could not fault the place. The prices were fantastic for the quality you get. Our room was spacious, clean and cosy. The bed was really comfortable and there was tea/coffee and water provided. There was also a television as well as a small dressing table, which was... More

We had a room for 3 really comfortable. When we arrived there were no one at the house to welcome us, but Denisse the owner had left us instructions. There are several breakfast options. The only thing they should improve is bathroom cleanliness tub, sink and toilet.
