I stayed here on an introduction to meditation course. Janet, Jonathan and all who help to run it are so friendly and welcoming, the food is absolutely fabulous, and the room I stayed in was very comfortable. It'll definately stay here again whenever I'm in Edinburgh. Thank you Janet.

We spent three very comfortable nights at Emmaus House ...... spacious room (no. 3), with twin beds and ensuite; delicious meals, central location and – most important – the convivial company of Janet, Jonathan and friends. The reviews on this page are testament to their gift of hospitality. As others have said, there is the opportunity to reflect/meditate in the... More

I stayed here for 4 weeks and paid around 500 quid which is quite reasonable. It's actually a Christian Retreat Centre. I would like to thank Andrew and Jane for all their help. They serve a continental breakfast and other cereals, toast and fruits which is free.

I was recommended this residence by a Priest friend of mine. His opinion of the place was, in my opinion, Spot-On. I took a bus (100) from Edinburgh Airport to Waverly Station. From Princes St, which runs above Waverly Station on a map, I took a #10 to Gilmore Place. From the bus stop(Lochrin Bldgs), the sign for Emmaus House... More

My mother, my two sisters and I stayed at Emmaus house the last week of October, 2013. I can not tell you how wonderful our stay was... But I'll try! The house is beautiful. The rooms are clean, super-clean. Oh, and the bed, amazingly comfortable! The location is tremendous. It is a short walk to all the best spots in... More

I spent over two weeks at Emmaus House in Edinburgh. I have stayed and compared it to other places in the city and absolutely nothing comes close to the value and hospitality you receive for the cost. It is in a great location for getting anywhere in the city and surrounding area. I literally hated to leave, they made me... More

Breakfast around a big table. A lovely sitting room and library that I hadn't time to use. Bus outside the door and plenty of corner shops. In the garden a small labyrinth and a wonderful wooden little building where a simple prayer meeting is held if you like. Oh...and good coffee!

30pounds for 1 night and breakfast is included. For me, only a 15min walk to the main street and 20 to the Airport-bus bridge. Unlike my previous BnB, here I was infinately more comfortable leaving my belongings when I went out exploring for the day. Alone or with a travel buddy you can really enjoy your stay at Emmaus House.... More

We were guests of Emmaus House in August 2013. This lovely B & B was the luckiest find of our trip. Our room, situated overlooking the garden and chapel, was comfortable, cosy and very nicely appointed. Andrew carried our bags to our room then made us a welcoming cup of tea. Emmaus House is within easy walking distance of town... More
