So lovely to be back in Edinburgh again. Timed it just right for the Turner exhibition again! The warmth and welcome at Emmaus are second to none - Benedictine hospitality at its best - thank you all.

I thought I had written a review months ago but it seems to have got lost. My wife and I spent four nights at Emmaus and were welcomed and cared for with great generosity. It is comfortable ,homely, and a Christian community of the best kind. People who do not share their benedictine spirituality need not be scared away- you... More

My wife and I just returned from Bonnie Scotland.From first contact Janet, the manager, cared about our needs, we left a message and she phoned us back. The location of Emmaus House is ideal to walk to the highlights of Edinburgh. Directions were easy to follow and parking, with support from the friendly staff (Jonathan and Andrew were stars!), was... More

From first contact by email through to the conclusion of my 6 night stay, the customer service was excellent, going well beyond what could reasonably be expected. My room was lovely, everything was clean and the bed comfortable. The atmosphere is very gentle and welcoming - the communal meals are not intrusive at all, but a welcome time of conversation...

Stayed two nights at Emmaus House with my mother in October 2014. Jonathan and Andrew are extremely gracious and welcoming hosts. Since we had not signed previously for communal dinner, they kindly accommodated our impromptu picnic dinner in the common room/library, and even brought us tea and extra salad from their meal. The rooms are adequately spacious, clean, and comfortable.... More

More a retreat centre than a B&B, Emmaus House provided a warm and hospitable welcome as we began our Scottish adventure. A bright, sunny house, it is very well-located in a quiet neighbourhood with easy access to buses, the Royal Mile, and local theatre and restaurants. Breakfasts are simple but plentiful with fresh fruit, cereals, breads, and bottomless tea. Fellow... More

Having stayed at Emmaus House Aug 2014 for the Edinburgh Tattoo, I can 100% recommend this Bed & Breakfast. The owners could not have been more accomodating and made us very welcome. Although a cooked breakfast was not available there was an excellent breakfast and plenty to eat. The accomodation was very warm & welcoming on arrival and cleanliness excellent.... More

I couldn't have imagined a better hub for my 5 days in Edinburgh. I chose this location *because* of it's religious ethos (prayer, community), but everyone seemed equally welcome and comfortable. My room was very comfortable (bed included) and the communal (continental) breakfasts were perfect. I highly recommend getting on the list for dinner at least once, because the food... More

The rooms are comfortable and clean, the breakfast is plentiful (with a wealth of friendly conversation) and the staff are friendly, knowledgable and helpful. I don't know about the quality of the dinners (they smell nice, though) as I am usually out at the Fringe or too busy between shows to partake. There is no pressure to join in the... More
