I stayed here for 2 nights recently and had a very good experience. The host, Jim (I believe), was very hospitable and made good recommendations when I asked him for places to eat and drink. Checking in and out was easy. Breakfast was also very delicious and made as you get seated. The B&B itself was accurate as listed -... More

Great service, so accommodating - and beautifully laid out dining room! Rooms are spacious (Victorian ceilings help give the feeling of space!) and immaculate, staff are very personable and knowledgable. Very peaceful and relaxed vibe :)

I booked this very last minute not quite sure what to expect for the price. I was very pleasantly surprised. The whole house was spotless. The bathroom was modern with an excellent hot shower. The breakfast was very nicely cooked and there was sufficient choice for the price we had paid. Getting the car into the on site carpark was... More

Jim's place, Appin House is a real gem. Delightful in many ways. We stayed a Fri and Sat nt in March. The house is both spacious, well located and in a quiet, discerning part of Edinburgh. It's about 2 miles from the Royal Mile, with regular buses just a short walk away. Jim, the owner, is an affable chap only... More

I liked this place. It's a guest house rather than a hotel. The bathroom was spotless, as advertised it was down the corridor but private. The owner and staff were helpful. The price was good and it wasn't in a red light district

I booked this Guest House only 4 hours before arriving there. The price seemed very reasonable, so I expected "basic." This wasn't the case. A very well kept guest house. The room was spacious and clean, towels were replaced and the bed was made every day. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast was fantastic! They could easily add 50%... More

The other reviews have explained it extremely well. It is a nice house with great rooms. The rooms had individual kettles so you could have tea at night, which I particularly liked. There is a bus stop very close and is very convenient. The shower was great and had instant hot water and solid pressure. The room also came with... More

This is a great place to stay. We had a stylish en-suite double bedroom, the house was warm and cosy with the grandeur you expect from a large Victorian house. Breakfast was excellent and nicely served, using good quality ingredients.The staff and Jim the proprietor were helpful and friendly. Appin House is located just a 10 mins bus ride outside... More

I stayed alone for 2 nights at the end of January 2015, booked on-line the day before I travelled and chose Appin House based on TripAdvisor reviews. It was definitely the right choice! Despite having booked and paid for a single room, I was offered a complimentary upgrade to a very nice double (they were not full). The room was... More

I stayed for one night between Xmas and New Year and wanted somewhere reasonably priced and Appin House ticked the box. I was warmly welcomed by the owner and directed to my room which was a single with separate private bathroom. The room albeit compact was clean and fresh and the bathroom nearby was wonderful with a roll top bath... More
