Brilliant! We were made to feel so welcome and everyone always had time to help us decide where to visit how to get there and the best places to see. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. One of the highlights of my stay was breakfast. The dining room was gorgeous and there was a breakfast choice for everyone. Love... More

I have just recently spent an unplanned stopover for the weekend in Edinburgh at Martins. Nothing was a problem even the late arrival time. The owners made us feel like one of the family immediately and being from a travel background that's exactly what I expect from a guesthouse. The bedroom was spotless and had everything we needed. The breakfast... More

I have just spent the weekend at Martins. I have stayed in many guesthouses in Edinburgh, but this is by far the best. The owners made us instantly welcome, and by our time of departure felt like one of the family! The guesthouse is spotless, the breakfast was also great. The owners have surrounded themselves with a very professional team,... More

Unfortunately we didn't get to stay the night at this B&B as we were travelling from Australia and were without a phone or access to email (a friend booked for us). Therefore, we had not realised you need to check in before 3 pm! As I am with my older mother, who is unwell, when we arrived there was no... More

Be sure to Prearrange car parking. This is on their website but not in the booking company information. We didn't but Denise went... More

We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed our stay. We had a big spacious room with a shared bathroom. The room was cleaned and there was all that we needed. We had an incident, that caused us to need to get a hold of the police, and the Landlady Denise was helpful beyond what could be expected. On two... More

We have been visiting Martin's Guest House annually for the Six Nations for many years. The hosts are extremely friendly, always provide good advice and will do everything possible to help with anything in relation to the stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable with every need taken care of. Breakfast provided is always hearty, well cooked and presented.
