This B&B is a hidden gem in a wonderful city. Just a short, and i mean very short walk to princes street and central to many of the local attractions. About 10 minute walk from bus station and train station. The b&b itself is just lovely! I stayed here in a twin room with my friend and we both felt... More

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

No elevator, several stairs.... More
