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.

Keep things local and stay at a place like Martin's guest house. Full of personal touches like homemade jams at breakfast, in addition to all the standard things you expect at a hotel (clean rooms, maps and wifi) Martin's was a thoroughly pleasant stay. Warm rooms and a great view of Edinburgh and the bus stop is right outside the... More

Stopped here over new year 2014, the place is very clean, modern, well presented.. Stuart is great, if you need to know anything about Edinburgh ask him. It's a good 20 to 25 mins walk into the city from here, so a few taxis and or buses might be needed after a few drinky poo's. number 10 bus stops outside,... More
