Stayed here for 2 nights for a weekend break!! The location was absolutely spot on.. Walking distance to everything. Couldn't have asked for better. Our room was huuuuge! Was nice to know we were given the choice of a room too. Was a bit nervous about sharing a bathroom but now probably would do it again. Was fine- didn't even... More

We stayed in Edinburgh for 3 nights and chose this guesthouse for our accommodation. Upon arrival we were shown several rooms which matched what we had booked and were given the choice of which one we wanted which was great. We had a shared bathroom which posed no problems whatsoever even though the guesthouse was fully booked. Breakfast each morning... More

I loved this guest house. It was cosy and the staff were lovely. Staff: lovely and helpful, and were happy to be flexible with check-in times. Also happy to mind our luggage upon arrival and departure. Location: New Town, but walking distance from the main street which makes it east to get to the main attractions. Being away from the...

I've stayed here twice on extended visits to Scotland. I travel alone from USA to do photography as a hobby. It's my first and only choice for accomodation, and Morag, the owner, is simply the best. Great breakfasts, central location, clean rooms and bathroom, everything is tops, and it's reasonably priced. I feel right at home, and when my day... More

We had a very pleasant break here. Continental breakfast was pretty good with nice pastries, bread, cheese and cooked meat. A selection of cereals and other bits and pieces. The room was pleasant and the proprietor was friendly and helpful. Can't fault this in any way.

I agonized over planning the perfect short getaway to Edinburgh with my boyfriend, and after much searching I settled on the Edinburgh Central Guest House. I'm so glad I chose it. It's an adorable, well decorated little inn off a small side street in central Edinburgh, just 10-15 minutes away from the Royal Mile by foot. The instant I walked... More

Nice kontinental breakfast with Fresh fruit and different kind of bread daily. Twinroom in good size, very small showerspaze though. Clean and comfortable room. Beds ok, maybe a bit hard. No elevator, several stairs.... More

Excellent, helpful, friendly service. The location is superb, being a couple of minutes from the city centre. Tucked away down a side street it's also very quiet. The room (twin with shared bathroom) was large, clean and welcoming, with free wifi, and the bathroom was also spotless. The continental breakfast was ample. Highly recommended.

You can't fault Morag's service or friendliness at this very centrally located B&B - only small complaint was no cooked breakfast but the continental offer was very generous. I had a massive room with full bathroom but some of the others did look a bit cramped and had shared bathrooms. Would stay again - good value for the location (walkable... More
