This place runs on 'love' and total commitment to providing the best hospitality. The food was excellent using high quality ingredients. Special diets were catered for without compromise. The people there were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and well looked after.

I knew as soon as I was greeted by Jonathan that I was going to love my stay. The staff are polite, friendly and overall respectful. I couldn't knock it! Food was fab, rooms clean and The courtyard garden was a gorgeous place to sit. Will def be back.

Friendly, simple, value, just what I needed. No more needs to be said. Excellent all round value for money. Why 200 characters minimum for this review? The value of this hotel was in its simplicity. It wouldn't be fitting to do a complicated review.

Great location in Edinburgh. The city centre is about 20 minutes walk but there is a bus stop very close to the place with two buses that pass by frequently. The staff are very friendly and very eager to help make the stay enjoyable. They also gave up tips for places to visit in the vicinity, including North Berwick and... More

Spotlessly clean, simple accommodation. Jonathan, Janet and the Andrews made us all feel really welcome. Sharing a communal table was a lovely convivial experience and the food was plentiful, and amazing. I was part of a group but would be more than happy to visit as a solo traveller.

I am so grateful that we found this Guest house. The house itself is so comfortable and peaceful with huge windows and interesting details. Everything is clean. The location is perfect, only a block to great restaurants and pubs. The conventions center is a 10 minute walk; it seems most things are within walking distance. Transportation is very close, with... More

I've been staying at intervals at Emmaus House (EH) for over a year. EH is both a Benedictine based city centre community and the loveliest, most welcoming, open and unfussy bed and breakfast I've ever stayed in. The only thing that counts is that you are a welcome guest. You can make of the spiritual aspect whatever you wish -... More

This was by far one of the highlights of my two week April 2014 trip through the UK. I met up with a friend who was staying there and was welcomed to share the dinner table. WHAT A WONDERFUL COMMUNITY. After meeting new people over dinner, I joined in evening prayers and then spent the rest of the evening in... More

I have stayed at Emmaus House on various occasions over several years now and don't think I would stay anywhere else in Edinburgh. The communal table for breakfast and evening meal, friendly warm welcome and the genuine interest of the hosts in their guests is part of the charm and I feel as if I am coming back to friends....

For a city centre guest house Emmaus House is great value: 10-15 minutes walk to the city centre but a little oasis of peace and relaxation amongst it all. The team running it are a big part of that, making you feel you are in a home from home, and serving delicious homemade meals. Nothing is too much trouble for... More
