To be honest, our expectations regarding the Sherwood Guest House weren't too high, but we needed an affordable place to stay and, since it was just 15-min away from the main attractions in Old and New Town, we made the reservations. Well, let me tell you that Dave and Susan, the owners, welcomed us as if we were friends they... More

Very nice guesthouse with lovely hosts. The breakfast is large and varied, with lots of fresh fruit and yogurt, which we prefer (as opposed to greasy bacon and sausages, which they don't do). Very clean. Every day you'd have fresh bottles of water, toffees and fruit on your room. Bus stop outside the door. Free guest parking. Walking distance to... More

As was our habit on our last European vacation, we arrived early at this guest house. Dave was very helpful in allowing us to leave our bags and check in early. The room was a good size, with fridge, microwave, kettle and plenty of closet space. Everything was clean and well kept. Breakfasts were great with plenty of options. Dave... More

I travelled to Edinburgh with my daughter as we had tickets for one of the Commonwealth Games Athletics events but did not want to stay in Glasgow. Edinburgh was far more appealing and we chose Sherwood from the good reviews we had read. Dave and Susan could not do enough for us, Dave even gave us 'breakfast to go' on... More

My husband, sister and I stayed here 1 night in July. We had twin room and it was fine, clean, nice beds, but it is a small room with barely room to walk around. We were street side but it was quiet outside. My sister had noisy people next door to her. The owners, David and Susan, were very helpful... More

We chose the Sherwood because it was recommended as being near the synagogue and friendly to kosher and sabbath observers. Also the hosts sounded unique and friendly. When we arrived for a week in June we found a charming, clean and cosy guest house with many extra touches added for the comfort of their guests. David and Susan were excellent... More

Liked the hosts Dave and Susan and they looked after us well. Room 4 is really only big enough for one single bed. It's too cramped for two singles forcing you to squeeze by the end of the beds sideways to get from one side of the room to the other. Large people would have difficulty. Room is comfortable once...

We stayed at Sherwood Guest House for 4 nights and it was a great time. It is not far away from city centre - approx 20 minutes walk, but you can also take any bus that has the stop 30 m from the house. The room we had was very clean, and it contained flat TV, the refrigerator and microwave... More

Could not fault this lovely guest house. We received a warm welcome from the owners even though we turned up without any prior booking. The ensuite rooms have everything you could require from tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen tv, iron and ironing board etc. The continental breakfast was exceptional, what a selection!! The guest house is conveniently located,... More
