A really good basic guest house which I recommend. The staff were excellent and very accommodating. I overslept and they went the extra and still provided me with breakfast and also went the extra to provide me with breakfast so I could leave early to drive south.

This guesthouse has state of the art cleanliness and the hosts are great. What might need to improve is the breakfast as for people like me who love a good breakfast that gives them the right vitality to keep running during the day is very important.

My partner and I have had a three night break in Tania Guesthouse. The room was clean if a little small. I thought we were getting an en suite room but it turned out the shower room was down the corridor. The area was quite handy for town and the staff, and I must say, other guests were extremely friendly.... More

I stayed at Tania Guest House for 5 nights in June. It is very conveniently located near a bus stop - and 20 minutes walking from the centre. The area is not very attractive but well served by shops and great pubs. Tania is really nice and helpful and makes lovely breakfast in the morning. My double room with private... More

The house is a £8 taxi ride from the bus station. The house was very clean and Tania was very nice and helpful. Easy walking distance to high street. Our only issue with the house was that the temp inside was very cold one of the nights and the hot breakfast wasn't very tasty. You are able to have a... More

I visited Edinburgh for the Hogmanay period and had a wonderful time both at the street party and staying at the guest house. We received a warm welcome, and the owner was most understanding about myself and my family having to rearrange due to the weather. The best little touch was having a later breakfast hour on new years day.... More

20 minute walk to the city center and a bus stop directly across from the guest house. The shared bathroom was not a problem as we never had to wait to use it and there was a sink in the room which was convenient. Accomadations in every major city we stayed in on our trip seemed to be a bit... More

I travel a lot and very rarely write reviews but sorry to say that this guest house needs a comment. If you go by the pictures in the web site you will be sorely disappointed! Room was cold and damp smelling on arrival at 8pm and looked like it needed a good clean. Pillows are well overdue for throwing out... More

My family and I (wife and 2 kids) spent last weekend 27/9/2013 in Edinburgh and I found this guesthouse through 2 hours of calls and research. Thanks to the comments on trip advisor I picked them. I will start with the good stuff: The staff here are very very helpful and kind, the facilities are very clean and contemporary and... More

It was only when my colleague returned from a few days at the Edinburgh festival, I remembered I had forgotten to do my little write up on the guest house I stayed at when I was in Edinburgh a few months before. The location is superb only one mile from the city centre, a 20 minute walk or 5 minutes... More
