This B & B was charming - we had the room with the private bathroom in the hall and it was great. The breakfast was wonderful.. Vivian was so accommodating with any request. She is the new owner and she wears that pride of this place with her ear to ear smile. It was a, easy 15 minute walk to... More

Thank you so much to Vivienne for making our stay in Edinburgh so wonderful. She is the new owner of this lovely B&B, and she was so welcoming and accommodating. We really enjoyed chatting with her and appreciated that she went above and beyond to make us comfortable. The room was very nice and cleaned every day. Little goodies in... More

We spent 3 nights at the Sherwood with our 9 month-old baby and our 3 year old son. The place is very clean and not nosy at all. The locations is also perfect. 25 min by foot from High street but many buses just across the street; also, very close from all hiking trails in Arthurs sit. Excellent service, specially... More

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

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
