Emmaus House is absolutely lovely. It feels more like staying at someone's house than a hotel, but with all the benefits of a hotel! And there are jars of real biscuits in the rooms... The communal breakfast table is a lovely way to start the day, even for an introvert like me. It's comfortable, clean, and has a lovely informal... More

I want to thank the beautiful people who run Emmaus House for the care they took of our Australian teenagers on their first trip away from home. After initially making a booking for my daughter in a single room, I changed our booking many times until there were six (or was it seven!!) 'gappies' in a family room and then... More

I can't rave enough about this place. The hospitality is above and beyond any place I have ever been. The staff/ resident really treated us like family. The food was amazing. The house is cozy, comfortable and the location is central. I slept better here than I do in my own home. This was our first time in Ed. And... More

We only stayed for a night but Janet, our host, was super lovely, helpful and full of tips! The rooms are simple but that's really all you need for a short tourist stay! Only a 10min walk away from Grassmarket and close to the lovely Meadows! Breakfast was also great, just a mix of things, and it had a very... More

Janet, Johnathan and Andrew were wonderful hosts and have a true ministry of hospitality. They went out of their way to ensure our needs were met and our time in Edinbrough was pleasant. If you are ever in Edinbrough, say in the Emmaus house, you will leave truly blessed.

I stayed at Emmaus House almost 20 times over two years and had the pleasure to visit again recently. If you are looking for an upscale place to stay where you are anonymous - look elsewhere. if you want a home away from home with clean comfortable accommodation, warm friendly hosts who truly care for you personally, a guest roster...

I really enjoyed the days in Emmaus House where I stayed 4 days with a friend. It is a very friendly, peaceful and comfortable place in the city center of Edinburgh. I'm looking forward to visit Emmaus House again.

Emmaus House has very welcoming, helpful hosts, and there is a lovely friendly atmosphere among the guests. Breakfast is an ample Continental with lovely bread and fresh fruit, yogurts and cereal. I like the idea of all sitting together at a big table, it's a nice way to start the day. The home-cooked evening meal is also worth having. There... More

Very welcoming and friendly environment. We were able to make drinks in the dining room and could use the sitting room any time. There is also a small chapel and a labyrinth in the backyard. Communal breakfast, simple and tasty, was included, with the extra option of dinner every night except Sunday.
