Booked this to get to Botanic Garden night event. Hosts very welcoming and helpful about bus routes, parking eating out. The room was comfortable and quiet for a city break. Breakfast was substantial and really set you up for a day of sight seeing. The house is a well appointed Georgian house with many origin features. We would gladly recommend... More

My trip was in order to attend a course at the Botanic Garden which is virtually next door, however the guest house is only a few yards from the bus route into the city centre. It was extremely comfortable and quiet; the hosts most attentive and the breakfast excellent. The only slight niggle was that in the bedroom the wifi... More

Hi-thanks for taking the time to review our guest house and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the wifi signal in the rooms- the signal is very strong in the guest lounge but doesn't travel well to the rest of the house as it's an old Georgian house with very thick walls. We will look into this... More

The hosts are very friendly and welcoming, and cook a delicious breakfast. The room we stayed in was a bit small because we picked the "small double ensuite" but very clean (it is cleaned daily and fresh towels are provided daily). It is situated in a good neighborhood, with a great restaurant within walking distance; there is free parking nearby... More

We stayed during the week of the Scottish referendum ...and the Ashlyn gets my vote! From the moment we arrived to tea and biscuits in the lounge while our luggage was taken to our room, we felt well looked after - Peter and Lindsay couldn't do enough for us. And the hotel? It's a lovely Georgian building on the northern... More

I arrived and was cheerfully greeted and shown up to my room. Everything was spotless and the bed was comfortable. The landlord served breakfast a quarter of an hour early so that I could attend meetings at the Royal Botanic Garden. Food arrived promptly and was good. I was particularly pleased to have butter open in a ceramic dish rather... More

The building is a large Georgian house, which has been very nicely preserved in conversion to a guest house. It's located a mile or so North of the centre, so it's a longish walk to town, but there are very regular buses from a stop just outside that run until about midnight. Nearby is the very pleasant Botanic gardens /... More

This was our first visit. Will definitely stay again if in Edinburgh, and happy to recommend it . Very clean comfortable room. Fabulous breakfast. Close to Botanic Garden. Can walk to Centre, or very efficient quick bus service.

Had to stay for a wedding location . Was happy enough but my mother was to stay longer. Half way through the stay they asked for payment which was very unprofessional. When they were leaving they complained because they had to use the bathroom before they left on there journey home. Very disappointed .

I am dismayed to read the above review after you and your family all said how pleasant your stay was over the weekend. If I may I would like to directly respond to the points in your review. Firstly, your mother was going away for a night then returning to us. It is normal practice for us to ask if... More

I have stayed at the Ashlyn guest house for the last 3 years for Hogmanay and my partner has stayed here every year for the last 12. Neither of us can find any fault. Very clean lovely breakfast very comfortable rooms and the proprietors couldn't be more welcoming and friendly if they tried. Home from home and would highly recommend... More
