This is a wonderful B&B with fantastic hosts and nice decor. My wife and I spent one night here in July 2013 with another couple that we are traveling with. We stayed upstairs in the double room (I can't remember the number). The only problem with the room was the heat. The room was very hot (due to no air-conditioning),... More

Rated very highly by all members of our party. Susan and David, the owners, couldn't be more helpful and the breakfasts are to die for! Conveniently located for travel to the City centre and for local amenities, and easy to find from the main Edinburgh bypass. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Myself and my travelling partner spent 3 nights at Sherwood Guest House at the end of October 2013 and we could not have been more pleased. The room was perfect, and in beautiful condition. Lovely ensuite and David was an absolute delight each morning. The breakfast was perfect and the house is right on a bus route that made it... More

We spent three nights at Sherwood guest house in September 2013. Located within 15 minutes walking distance to the city centre/Royal mile and well connected by bus, this is a great place to stay and explore Edinburgh. The rooms were very tastefully decorated and had a feeling of warmth and coziness (not to mention the fragrance in the air), just... More

We spent 5 nights in "Sherwood guest house" which is a family business. Susan and David, the owners, were extremely friendly and polite and made our stay nice and warm. It is a clean, decent place to stay with nice decoration. The breakfast was really good! Fresh brewed coffee, fruits, variety of cheeses and bread. croissant... Almost everything someone needs...

My wife, daughter and I spent four days at Sherwood Guest House in October and would certainly recommend it. Susan and David were very helpful indeed and went out of their way to find bus details, order a taxi and give us other details we needed to know as first time visitors to Edinburgh. The room was large and was... More

I had a lovely stay here at the Family run guest house. I was at a conference and still hadn't checked in by 10pm, I rang and it wasn't a problem at all. They were so accommodating. When I arrived at 10.30pm I was greeted and shown to my room. My room was lovely and warm, spotlessly clean and felt... More

My husband and I had an absolutely lovely stay with David and Susan! The bed was comfortable and nicely decorated. The bathroom was small, but perfectly equipped. But really, a good B&B is about so much more than the room, and David and Susan excel at customer service and providing a comfortable and warm atmosphere. Susan knew we had an... More

I have just spent two nights at the Sherwood Guest House and cannot say enough good things about my stay. The room was wonderfully comfortable with a beautiful bathroom and amazing shower. There was a large variety of tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc. provided in the room and the fridge was an added bonus. The hosts were kind enough to... More

Wonderful, friendly staff. Cozy rooms (complete with tea, coffee and kitkats!). Delicious varied breakfast. A great place to stay, 15min walk from the centre, quiet in the evening. Definately recommend.
