At £68 for a 3 person room you don't have high expectations but you do expect a clean room! Our room was dirty and extremely damp, mould all up the walls around the windows and in the toilet. The bathroom looks like it was put together by a toddler, everything badly squint and grout in places there shouldn't. To be... More

The Regis guest house is an average b&b. For the price you pay you get the basics. Staff were friendly and informative and the rooms were clean. Only drawback is the breakfast is further down the street which is not ideal.

First the good things: Heater worked and breakfast was good, except for the hair in the egg. I will only comment on the things they could fix. We were in the triple in the front of the Regis House. BUT, the Regis is about a half a block from the office and breakfast spot. In our building the internet didn't... More

Although light on atmosphere and amenities, the Regis served our needs for an affordable overnight within walking distance of downtown Edinburgh. Our family room (£80 for 3 adults with breakfast) was clean and functional but not a place for much more than sleeping and dressing. Breakfast and the staff are at the separate Braveheart Guest House on the same block.... More

My partner and I stayed at the Regis Guest House last year and would not return. The location is fairly central and although the hotel is fairly cheap, it is definitely not worth it. We were quite happy to stay in a basic room which is what we got - it is fairly old-fashioned but the room was clean and... More

Shabby & tired room, cold bathroom, but fairly spacious for a family of 4. Nice breakfast. Really doubt I will ever want to return again, even though you are unlikely to get anything for 65£ a night anywhere else.

I feel that some reviews here are unkind. My family and I stayed for 3 nights. We found the staff to be really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was complimentary and superb. The room was very dated and in need of a complete refurb, but it had comfortable beds and was REALLY cheap and central. The area immediately around the... More

It was pouring outside, and I was with my parents. Didnt know beforehand that the check in is at a different place, so my parents stayed inside the 57 address (a nice cleaning lady let us in since she saw us trying to seek shelter from the rain) and I ran in the rain to check in. Aware that check... More
