Our family of 4 stayed there for 5 nights in (nightmarish room 14) 1st floor with no lifts, therefore have to carry heavy luggage up stairs.The room was really not suitable for 4 people (maybe 3 max). The bathroom was pokey and lacked ventilation,my daughter hit her nose on the towel rack which ended up getting infected.There was no airconditioning... More

I got a room at this central guest house for a really good price. It is in an excellent location (easy walking distance from Princess Street, Waverley Station and Hendersons Bistro/Cafe!). My room was really big and very nice with a massive en suite - I think it was designed to accomodate people with a disability (that said I had... More

Great location if you plan on spending some time walking the Royal Mile, visiting the Edinburgh Castle or the Princes Street Gardens. Travelling with other girlfriends we chose to arrange for twin bed rooms. Keep in mind if you choose this option, the twins butt up against one another. The room I shared was facing a courtyard with a large... More

On previous visits to Edinburgh we had stayed at another B&B. The owners have since retired and closed the business, so we looked for another place to stay. Queens Guest House turned out to be a really good choice. It is convenient to Princes Street and all the attractions that are near it. Our ground floor room was immaculate. The... More

We were pleased to stay in such a centrally located guest house. All of the main Edinburgh sites were within walking distance including the Hop on Hop off if you so wished. Our room was nicely decorated but small. We were located at the rear of the building with three rooms close together which allowed for noise from doors opening... More

Don't accept a basement room! We had the street facing basement "family room" and the noise from the breakfast room awoke us each morning. The trash is also stored outside this room in an alcove and the smell was awful and prevented us from getting any fresh air by opening the window. No air conditioning! The breakfast was the poorest... More

I am still not sure if this is a Hotel or a Guest House. Either way it should be easy to get into, but in the event it proves to be something of an initiative test to do so. There is no obvious Reception as such and the staff who appear to be responsible for the entrance door are located... More

Only 5 minutes stroll from Princes Street this lovely friendly guest house is a real find. On arrival at 10:00 we were able to leave our bags to start exploring the beautiful city of Edinburgh. Our accommodation was clean, well presented, quite roomy with a good en-suite shower room. The breakfasts were more than adequate with a good choice of... More

I tried to work with their management on getting a refund but they would not do so I canceled in plenty of time for them to rebook the room. Basically... More
