We had such a nice stay at The Guest Room. The welcome was so friendly and the room was lovely with it's own private entrance so we could easily come and go whenever. We were really close to all the things we wanted to do in Edinburgh and an easy walk from the station. Breakfast was brought to our room... More

It was a pleasure to stay in this lovely room in a quiet, elegant residential neighborhood. All the major Edinburgh sites are a easy walk away. We enjoyed strolling around the corner to the Cumberland Bar as if we were locals. The room was beautifully furnished with everything a guest could need, and the private entrance was very convenient.

We stayed in the courtyard room downstairs with its own entrance and loved the room and the excellent central location of The Guest Room. Katrina and her family are charming and couldn't have been more helpful, even bringing breakfast to the room under trying weather conditions. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Edinburgh having experienced The Guest Room and can't... More

Katrina & Fergus greeted us as if we were life long friends, showed us to the court yard guest room, it was self contained with a very large comfortable bed, the breakfast was superb and fueled us for the days trip into Edinburgh for its many attractions, easy to get to town from the room. We would definitely recommend this... More

Imagine being amongst the frenzy of the Fringe then arriving at your lodging to be greeted as if you were a close relative that dropped in for an overnight or two or three. And then after a most cordial greeting and explanation regarding your room's environs, you are asked what time you prefer breakfast delivered TO YOUR ROOM!! Get that?... More

This has been our third year at The Guest Room in Edinburgh during the Fesitval and also our First wedding anniversary (we got married in Edinburgh last year and Katrina and Fergus were good enough to be our witnesses). If you are looking for a fabulous location in accommodation that feels like a boutique hotel - then this is the... More

This was our first trip to Edinburgh and having found The Guest Room, it won't be our last. Peaceful, stylish, comfortable and spotlessly clean, are just some of the adjectives I could use to describe this B&B. Edinburgh, during the Tattoo and Festival is frenetic and just a little bit crazy (although wonderful), so it was delightful to stroll back... More

We recently stayed at the Guest Room whilst visiting the Edinburgh Tattoo and Fringe festival. Suffice to say this was the best B&B experience we have ever enjoyed. Katrina and Fergus have created a beautiful haven within easy walking distance of Edinburgh centre. Spacious room, stylishly decorated, with loads of personal touches and character. Great en-suite bathroom with powerful shower,... More

We had a lovely time in Edinburgh and I can only recommend The Guest Room. The location is in New Town, one block from the 27 bus line which leads right up to Prince Street and the old town. The #27 drops you off two blocks below the castle. It couldn't have been better. This is not a traditional B&B.... More

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed it to the full. The hosts family (incl. a lovely dog) is very inviting and caring. The upper room is large (enough space for a sofa and much more) including a hallway and small private bathroom. All nicely decorated and everything is provided. The main sights lie within walking distance and especially... More
