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

Excellent. From the initial welcome from Jim to the wonderful breakfast included in the price. The rooms are spotless and the beds comfy. Convenient for the City Centre, busses run every few minutes. I recommend you leave the car and get the bus. This is definitely the place we'll be staying for visits to Edinburgh. We will make sure to... More

We recently spent a wonderful 3 nights at Appin House and didn't want to leave! The house is lovely, in a beautifully quiet area and our bedroom was really spacious and airy. Breakfast was great, with lots of choice, served by a very friendly lady ( Linda, I think ) Edinburgh is only a 20 mins walk away or you... More

Beautiful B&B made to feel very welcome. Rooms are immaculate too couldn't find a speck of dust. Breakfast is good and service by Linda cannot be faulted. Would recommend anyone who wants some peace and quiet to go there to relax or catch a bus which is around the corner to the busy Edingburgh town centre £3.50 for a day... More

We had a fantastic stay here for 3 nights whilst exploring Edinburgh. The room was spacious and the ensuite quite modern with the breakfast each morning having a wide and tasty selection available. The B&B had parking right outside, in addition to being an easy 15 minute walk or short bus ride to the old town city centre which you... More

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.
