Down a residential street is this very good b+b. Had a single room which was small but adequate. Tea and coffee and comfortable enough. Private non-ensuite bathroom very impressive and enormous, with roll top bath and nice shower. Pleasant breakfast room. Not far from main road into town so bussing or walking (40mins approx) into town relatively straightforward. Recommended and... More

Loved the location because we were able to either take the walk into town about 25 mins or jump on the bus that stops at a 3 min walk from the B&B. We did both and although the 25 min walk sounds lengthy we just strolled and enjoyed the sites as we went and before we realized we were downtown.... More

Our 4th visit to the Newington area we like the relaxed vibe, Architecture and excellent public transport to the old town (10 mins by bus). Situated in a quiet crescent near the main bus route Appin house has three parking... More

We had a very warm welcome at this lovely house! Nothing else to mention that the other reviews haven't covered, except the lovely sign we saw on the wall, inviting guests who were visiting their children at university to bring the kids along for breakfast for free. Whilst we of course didn't have any need for this, I thought it... More

Was only here for an overnight, basically somewhere to sleep and shower. I didn't see the doorbell at first so went around the back to try to raise someone. A lady eventually showed, but it was her husband who ran the guest house and she was pleasant, but of little help! Fortunately the husband arrived shortly after, and all was... More

This is a lovely b and b in a quiet location yet only about 25 minutes walk from Edinburgh centre. I was looking for a single room but was given a super double to myself (room 6), with a huge, very comfortable bed and excellent en suite at an extremely reasonable cost. The house is very clean, breakfast is good... More

We use this hotel frequently as have family near by. The hotel has been done up over the past decade to a very high standard. The location is great for getting into the city centre, or even for walking back to if its too late for the bus. Jim the owner is very friendly and always full of advice.
