We had a great time staying at the Amaryllis Guest House and the people there were very nice to us. We had a great breakfast there and our room was very pleasant. We would gladly stay there again the next time we are in Edinburgh!

Our room was small and the tv a little below par but the service and cleanliness and attitude of the staff exceptional. We were scheduled for departure before breakfast for a tour and a sack of sandwiches and fruit was ready when we left in the wee hours. This was offered - we did not have to ask for it.... More

The guest house was clean and the house is pretty. The breakfast was only available between 8.30 and 9.15. Also you have to choose the night before what you want and you only have one of five options. So if you would like to start with some fruit and then have an egg, that's not an option. The entrance hall... More

This Guest House was a lovely, superb place to stay. We had the family room and the place was lovely and Clean. The service was good and polite. Location not too far from Edinburgh centre - you can walk (20 minutes). You order breakfast the night before and it was served in the morning. We stopped 2 nights and I... More

This time we stayed three nights at the Amaryllis in October. We had the family-room for the four of us. The beds were great and the room was big. The only downside were the really small washbasin and the small space for the toilet. The Landlady was extremely friendly and made a superb scottish breakfast. So it was definitely worth... More

We had five nights at Amaryllis. Appreciated Stella's help in organising Grey Line tours for us. The room was quite adequate, although the en suite was tiny. Breakfasts tasty, Thoroughly enjoyed our time in Edinburgh, and part of this satisfaction was due to Stella's friendliness as much as the attractive location and the scenic spots.

I stayed at the Amaryllis prior to running the Edinburgh marathon. I'm happy to say that the guest house is a real delight. Clean, warm and welcoming. The landlady was very helpful and provided an early breakfast for those taking part in the marathon. My room was well equipped and the bed was comfortable. The guest house is in a... More

I spent 5 nights at this guest house in October/ 13. The room was a quit large and very well appointed. The only down side was that my washroom was down the hall, however I did not have to share which was nice. The rooms are in an older townhouse about 20 minutes walk from Edinburgh castle, numerous buses are... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights while on vacation. Overall The Amaryllis House is a good value. Cathy is a great host who is informative but doesn't get in your way, which is what we prefer. We stayed in room 4 on the third floor. It has a double bed and a twin. We slept on the... More

Many thanks for your lovely review and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately people do smoke in the garden outside the front door and yes that sometimes does permeate into the lobby as this door is usually open. I can assure you it is not the staff but other guests. I am very sorry if this compromised your... More

We stayed here in October 2012 for 2 nights. This guest house is in a lovely old-fashioned building. I see previous reviews were critical of the front garden but we did not see any fault with it. It looked tidy and well maintained. We had a nice sized room with one double and one single bed. Bathroom bit small but... More
