Lorraine's Guest House was a wonderful way to start our UK adventure. Wonderful sunrise and sunsets over the ocean view and yet a easy and pretty bus ride into Edinburg. Double decker bus ran about every 10 minutes with the stop almost infront of her house to the center of Edinburg in about 20 minutes (digital display of time between... More

The rooms we have had have all been light, airy and clean. There is a wide range of food available for breakfast and the full Scottish breakfast is tasty-as is her... More

We stayed at Pearl View for just one night but it was a lovely enough experience to rate it the four stars it deserves. The first you notice driving up to the guest house is the breathtaking view of the coast and sea. This is especially beautiful at sunset and the air feels so fresh. Now to the guest house... More

Warm welcome, great location, comfortable room, excellent breakfasts. Plus four days of good weather but not sure you can always expect this! Fine promenade walk west to Portobello and east to the delightful Fisherrow Harbour and Musselburgh. Take the bus or park a little closer to Edinburgh, walk through Queens Park to the city centre attractions.

We stayed for two weekends. A lovely guest house facing the sea on the main road between Portobello and Musselburgh. Lorraine is the perfect host, couldn't be more kind and helpful. Breakfast was gorgeous, with a huge selection for the 'Full Scottish Breakfast'! if you can, get down early and sit in the bay window overlooking the Firth! Excellent direct... More
