This guest house was a fabulous choice for 3 nights for Hogmanay! It was about a 20 minute walk into the centre but one that we enjoyed rather than taking the bus. My partner and i stayed in a double room on the first floor, small but very cosy and extremely well equipped, the little details like bottled water, sweets,... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in October 2014. The B&B is well located, around 20 mins walk into the centre. I would suggest the day saver ticket on the bus for £3.50. Bus stop right outside the B&B and there is a bus every 5 minutes. We stayed in the triple room on the ground floor.... More

Stayed 3 nights in September. Although a couple, we booked the Triple Room as it was the only room left and I thought it was still good value. Have no regrets with this decision. The room was clean and spacious with lots of extras you normally don't get in a B & B. eg ironing board, safe, water, candies etc.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Sherwood Guest House for 4 nights at the beginning of September. It was our first Bed & Breakfast experience and it was wonderful! The B&B is located on a main street, about a 20-25 minute walk from the Royal Mile, and 30 mins to the Edinburgh Train Station. Very convenient, and there are... More

David and Susan were such amazing hosts! Warm, friendly and helpful. We stayed in the family room upstairs with three beds. The room was spacious compared to other places we stayed while on our trip to the U.K. There was a tea kettle, tea, coffee, hot chocolates, candies and bottled water in the room for us each day. The bathroom... More

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
