Stayed here for 3 nights last week. It was perfectly situated for getting into the city by bus. Hosts friendly and helpful - and I am extremely grateful to them for posting on clothes that I stupidly left in my room!

Had an enjoyable stay here - stayed here 2 nights for a christening and was very convenient. The breakfast was very nice and you could choice what you wanted. The hotel was not very far away from the local bus route so this was handy when going back to the airport. Would definetly stay here again!

I stayed for 2 nights while visiting my son,it was the cheapest I could find within reach of the city centre so I was not sure what I would find. What I found was a warm welcome,a comfortable clean room and an acceptable(if small) breakfast.OK the decor was not really to my taste,but that is a minor consideration and it... More

Spent a week here while I was working and it was everything I needed - warm, clean, very welcoming, nice to come back to at the end of the day. Straight road into town - an easy 15 minute walk or there was a very frequent bus from the stop just across the road. Would definately stay here again next... More

I had booked this hotel for myself and my teenager daughter BEFORE reading any reviews on Tripadvisor. I made the mistake of reading them the night before we were due to go and I must confess was seriously thinking of trying to get out of the booking. However I am so pleased that I didn't. We were greeted by a... More

I booked this B&B on line, I read the reviews, good and bad. Was a little nervous after reading a bad review about the breakfast, or lack of it if we missed the time slot. This B&B was so easy to find off the ring road, good half hour walk in to the city, but one road, very easy, we... More

I have been stayed at the International Guest House for ca. 10 days in August. I appreciated it, I feel like at home. It is a very nice building 15- 20 minutes walk from the city centre. I liked this walk every morning! In any case there is the bus stop in front of the guest house, and in10 min.... More

We were in Edinburgh for one night unexpectedly and found this place in Mayfield Gardens which has a large selection of B&B's on offer. Having viewed a couple of them we settled on the International Guest House as we were offered a large room on the first floor. The owner's first language is not english and we had a little... More

The room was dirty. The breakfast was of poor quality and rushed. Compared to other b&bs or hotels we have stayed in the cost was over inflated for the service provided. However, worst of all, when we dared to complain about the service we were met with abuse and threats from the owner. A really unpleasant experience which ruined our... More

The two best things about this guest house were the staff and the location. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The bus services into town are excellent and although there is limited parking on site, there is plenty in the road next door (quite rare for Edinburgh). My single room on the first floor was however very small, as... More
