Perfect location, service irreproachable, warm welcome. We just went for 2 night 1 at the beginning of out trip in Scottland , 1 for the back So we could sleep in 4 différent rooms ( we are a family with 2 kids) and we really appreciate the place and the kindness of our host. We really recommend Appin House.

Only minor comments was the toilet flush was a little dodgy and you had to be careful closing the... More

I stayed in a single room for 3 nights (Friday - Sunday) whilst arranging long-term accommodation in Edinburgh. I loved everything about Appin House. The staff were friendly, the room was warm and comfortable, the private bathroom was spotless and the whole place had a lovely, homely feel about it. I cannot understand why some other reviewers have had an... More

A very friendly guest house. This was our second visit to Appin House and we enjoyed both stays. We had a good quality room with a modern en suite. Suggest you phone the guest house for the best rates. Food plentiful and good quality You are not far from a bus stop which allows you to catch the relatively priced... More

I stayed in this guest house for 5 nights in October and its very close to the City centre and owner and very nice and helpful. Cant ask for more as breakfast was included in the price and free advise about local area and attractions.

Stayed here for a week during the CofS General Assembly. Excellent room, nice bathroom (shared and very large), very quiet, superb breakfast and a shortish walk into The Royal Mile/Princes St. Will definitely be returning in the future.

The Appin is a small but attractive guest house. The value for money was fantastic. I was greeted by the owner who was very welcoming and extremely informative, providing lots of local advice on where & what to do. The room was a decent double with a very modern en-suite. Tea, coffee & buscuits were supplied & extras were available... More

This place is fantastic. It should rate in the top ten. It is just a short bus ride to Central Edinburgh. Shhh don't tell anyone or it will be always booked out! We needed a place to park our rental car while exploring Edinburgh and this place was perfect. Breaky was great, room was big, comfortable and clean. Thanks Jim... More

This is the most accommodating place at which I have ever stayed. The young lad, who was care-taking for his parents who were away, did an excellent job of caring for all the guests especially myself. The breakfasts were to die for and the staff efficient, helpful and friendly. I had the front room which had a beautiful view through... More
