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.

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

We stayed here for a couple of nights and found it to be comfortable and convenient. The staff were very friendly and informative. Parking was provided off street and public transport was nearby and very good. Breakfast was very good.

I can't rate Appin House highly enough. The owners and staff were so friendly and informative, the room was very comfortable and the guest house itself was immaculate and tastefully done. The location was ideal. If there was an option for 6 stars I would have no hesitation to click it. Try Appin House and see for yourself. You will... 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
