Arriving on a very very wet Scottish afternoon the staff immediately "joined us in the mist" to help get our bags from the car. We were in the basement but despite a note asking for people to be considerate at night, the hallway outside is a little noisy, if your are a light sleeper this could be a problem. However,... More

Needed an overnight stay in Edinburgh to meet customers and have a night out at the Fringe. I normally chose the budget hotel at Edinburgh Park and come in via train - but found this guest house for a lower cost. And the guest house is in a perfect location for access to the Fringe comedy. Had a basement room... More

We were happy to return to this spotlessly clean, well run, accommodating Guest House. It's ideally placed for The Traverse Theatre and Assembly rooms and The Stand Comedy Club. Already booked in for 2015

The photos of the rooms and beds don't match with reality.The only good point was the location- in a quiet place but close to the center. Rooms were small for 4, not very clean, smelly, staff were not proffessional. We booked a quadraple room in December and paid for 4. In May I wrote an email requesting a room on... More

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
