The room was clean and suitable for our needs. The only problem was that the ceiling was slanting and as my partner is very tall he bumped his head! Breakfast was good and we thought the guest house was reasonably priced. It was about twenty minutes walk away from the city centre.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to review our guest house and we are glad you had a pleasant stay with us. You stayed in the twin rooms at the top of our house which do have sloping ceilings in parts of the room and we're so sorry your partner bumped his head! Hopefully it didn't hurt too much!I Perhaps... More

We stayed here for a short break to Edinburgh over the early May bank holiday weekend. What a little gem. Very traditional but entirely in keeping with the wonderful Georgian building. Our room at the front was lovely and like the rest of the house absolutely spotless. It's also In a great spot, especially if you don't want to stay... More

Just back from a great stay at the Ashlyn Guesthouse - we were staying for a wedding and the owners were very flexible with us coming and going as we needed. The room was quite small but enough room for two people and had all the amenities we needed - the en suite was also small but had an excellent... More

Had a really nice couple of nights here while attending a wedding in the botanics. Peter and Lindsey were welcoming, the room immaculate and the breakfasts fantastic. Would definitely recommend for anyone who's looking for somewhere that's not bang in the centre of town, but has good access by bus or on foot and nice surroundings with the Botanic gardens... More

A lovely welcoming guest house. Lindsey and Peter couldn't have been more kind. They were not busy because of the time of year so I was offered a room upgrade at no extra cost. The room I stayed in (room 4) was large and very nice indeed. The room was serviced each day and clean towels provided. The breakfasts were... More

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
