Visiting Edinburgh for a show with friends at the Playhouse we all stopped for one night at the Alpha Guest House on Old Dalkeith Rd, it was a first class choice, the bedroom was spotless, excellent shower facilities clean, welcomed by Louis who immediately made us feel at home. A full breakfast was made if you so required it. excellent... More

I would recommend this accommodation to anyone who is visiting Edinburgh. It's in a good location with easy transport to the City centre. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and furnished to a very high standard. Breakfast is delicious and abundant. The owners, Louis and Ada, could not be more friendly and welcoming. Outstandingly good value for money.

I called in on the off chance that there was a vacancy whilst I was in the area on business. The owners, Loius and his wife are very welcoming and lovely people. The accomodation is spotlessly clean and the rooms are far nicer the many of the hotels I stay in most days of the week. The bed was really... More

Ada and Louie were brilliantly helpful. We made a booking not knowing what time we'd arrive after a 500 mile drive. We were coming to visit a sick relative in the hospital nearby. Check in was easy and we were able to check in early in the morning to catch up with some sleep. The Royal Infirmary is about 15... More

Thanks to Ted and Dot for another lovely stay, clean, pleasant and within easy reach of the centre. Our fellow guests were a bit noisy but that's not the proprietor's fault. The bed was comfy and the hosts couldn't be more accommodating

Although the premises were clean, the en suite bathroom was full of black mould in the shower unit. No heating in the bathroom, which made it a bit chilly! Breakfast 8.30, like it or lump it! I thought I had booked what had been described as ground floor and appeared to be a row of bungalow style buildings, we found... More

We lucked out with this B & B! The room was just lovely. The bus stop right outside was very very handy. The proprietors were very friendly and let us keep the car there for the day after we checked out so we didnt have to take it into the old town. Breakfast was yummy and the bed was very... More

This is by far one of the best bed and breakfasts I have ever been to. It is a very small facility with I guess only 4 rooms but the rooms (at least the one we stayed in) were perfect for a couple to accommodate. It is very clean, newly fursbished and it has everything you will need in a... More

I have just had a lovely two day break in Edinburgh with my daughter and was lucky to find the Alpha guest house as our bed and breakfast stay. The guest house is situated on the outskirts of Edinburgh with fantastic bus links literally just outside the guesthouse. The hosts were welcoming but not overbearing which was lovely, anything we...
