My sister and I have just had a brilliant 4 nights at Sherwood Guest House and couldn't have picked a better place if we'd tried. Vivienne was a great host and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in the twin ensuite room and although it was small the room was extremely comfortable. The location was great - just a... More

Vivienne was a warm and welcoming host. She gave us great tips on how to save time and money in the crazy tourist places. She was very good about accommodating our food allergy, too. We would love to stay here again!

Vivienne was very friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed our stay at Sherwood and the rooms were just as advertised. The family room was perfect for the four of us and breakfast was full of delicious fresh fruit and pastries. We left an item under the bed, and Vivienne went out of her way to locate it for us although... More

My husband and I enjoyed four nights at Sherwood. The house is lovely and very well situated for sightseeing. Vivianne's kindness and friendliness was outstanding, as she helped us with planning our days, finding our way out of the city and making restaurant recommendations. Our room was tiny but completely adequate. Breakfast is self serve style, with many choices,including fresh... More

Dear Vivienne, last year i was with a friend in Sherwood guest house. This year i came with my aunt to Edinburgh. I didn't know that the B & B has a new owner. I was so surprised when you open the door, but you are a loving, attentive and crazy person. We felt very comfortable with you. The Sherwood... More

My family and I stayed there in late May and had a fantastic time. Viv was amazing, very funny, friendly, and helpful. We loved the breakfasts and the room was very clean as well. It was a pure treat to spend time at her guest house. Highly recommended!

From the moment Vivienne opened the door we felt at home. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and the hosts attention to detail is second to none. Continental breakfast was delicious. The hosts winning smile and sunny nature will bring guests back time and time again. Nothing is any trouble!
