Stayed here in August for one night during the Fringe Festival. I had very little choice of where I stayed because of the festival and because on this occasion I was alone and needed only a single room. I was actually looking for a town centre location and this was a bit further away and very cheap so I was... More

Just spent three nights in this lovely guesthouse. High ceiling bedrooms tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds .A tasty breakfast every morning. Delightful staff and owner. A bus ride away from City Centre but so many buses absolutely no hassle. Or you can get a taxi for same price as four people on bus -approximately £6.

We stayed at the Appin House for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute! We stayed in a double room en suite. It was nicely decorated -keeping its victorian style yet not dated- and very well equipped. The bathroom looked like it was newly refurbished. The room has a flat screen tv, hair dryer, free wifi and plenty of space. The... More

Appin House is in an area south of the center of Edinburgh where nearly every other home is a B&B. It's just a short walk to the bus stop, at which you can take any of the bases that come along frequently and be whisked into the centre of the city. James is a courteous and knowledgeable host. Our room... More

The service from the owner of this guest house was superb, he went out of his way to make my stay a pleasant one. The cleanliness was of a high standard throughout with the bathroom being particularly well maintained. I won't hesitate to return on future trips to Edinburgh.

We had a very nice stay at Appin Guest House. The owner was helpful and welcoming, the house beautiful and clean and the breakfast was a good value. The mattresses in the rooms were pretty stiff, but for the rest, you won't be disappointed!

This B&B is simply great. Nice big rooms with high ceilings, modern bathrooms, comfy king size beds, flat screen TV and great breakfast. The city centre can be reached by variety of buses in about 10 mins. The bus stop is less than 5 minutes from the hotel. If you want to walk into the city, it takes about 20-25mins... More
