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!

Well located and carefully decorated. Vivienne is a fantastic host. She is also very entertaining and gave me a good overview of what to do in this gorgeous city. The continental breakfast has good variety. The room has more perks than a 4 star hotel! I will stay longer next time!!

Stayed here for 5 nights. Had a wonderful time. Vivienne is very helpful and friendly! Everything was perfect. Tea and coffee in the room. Also a microwave and fridge. Breakfast was very good! Room was very clean. 20-25 minute walk to the city centre and also a bus stop next to the b&b. The room was small, but we did... More

I stayed here with my 11 week old baby for 3 nights as I was visiting a friend and her newborn. Vivienne was friendly, funny and forthright from the get go! She was very helpful finding me something to eat for breakfast (I had dietary restrictions) and was always warm and friendly. The room itself was clean, comfy and had... More
