I stayed here over Halloween and found it to be very pleasant. The free WiFi helped plan the rest of my trip. The staff were friendly. The breakfast provided was delicious. Very reasonable pricing for what you got. Bathroom and room was clean and to a good standard.

The Blossom Guest House is a fantastic value! The owners are so pleasant and helpful with anything you may need. The location is quiet, but not far from the city center. Buses stop within walking distance and allow for quick transportation into the heart of Edinburgh. A great place to stay!

My partner and I booked into Blossom House to stay over Hogmanay for four nights. We were very impressed from the moment we checked in, until the moment we checked out with the service we received during our stay. Our hosts went out of their way to accommodate us as guests and to ensure we were as comfortable as we... More

Only stayed 1 night but this hotel was great value for money. Only a 15 minute walk into town with plenty of bars, shops & eateries on the way. Great bus service too with stop just outside. Some parts in the hotel look a wee bit tired but it's clean, friendly & excellent value.

The only thing that was good was the friendly lady of the house. The room was OK, but part of the sheets looked dirty. The shower's borders were dirty and the bathroom had a water damage smell to it. As I signed out it turned out the man of the house had forgotten to book my taxi to get to... More

This hotel was expensive for what it was. Its a long way from the centre of Edinburgh and is very basic. There is no lift and carrying your bag up the spiral staircase is a real effort. The bed was uncomfortable and bathroom is poky. Limited parking. There is a bus stop across the road that can take you into... More
