Treat yourself when next in Edinburgh and stay at this delightful guest house. From the minute my daughter and I walked in the door and met Jackie we felt right at home. The house and rooms are tastefully decorated with lovely homely, thoughtful touches. What a treat to come home to the house at the end of a long day.... More

We recently stayed at the Cruachan Guest House and found it to be quite disgusting ! It is old ...shabby and very neglected. In places it was dirty. The owner was friendly at breakfast time but after that you never see him. There is no effort made to welcome guests or make them feel comfortable. There is no attention to... More

This place is disgusting. The linens were dirty, the bed was terrible, and the whole interior needs to be redone. If you don't mind substandard accommodations this is the place for you. I had to buy my wife a blanket because she couldn't get under the covers.

Stayed two nights. Graham, the owner, was lovely and very helpful. Would go out of his way to make you comfortable. The place is a little run down but it is clean and friendly. Cute little conservatory room for breakfast.

My girlfriend and I travelled up from London for the weekend. I booked the room the old fashioned way over the phone and was very happy with the result. I found the cruachan on a hotel website but called to make sure we could get a late check-in. Everything was last minute for us so I was very happy that... More

We are three ladies in our 50s. We stayed in at this guest house for three nights in November. How disappointed we were when we arrived. After eventually getting the owner to open the door and let us in,we were ushered into a room on the ground floor,it was dreadful. The room was dreary,drab and not very inviting. When Graham...

we stayed for 3 nights this past week and found it very clean, restful and quiet . Also a great area to get buses to the city center. Would stay here again. If there was a. Negative, I would maybe suggest new mattresses for the beds, or get box springs for them.

I stayed three nights with my teenage daughter at Cruachan, and it was just about perfect. Graham was very welcoming, and made everything easy. He confirmed we were coming via email the day before, and although he wasn't there when we arrived, he had everything organised for us to find our room without a fuss. The room was comfortable.

I stayed here two nights and enjoyed it very much. A warm welcome by Graham, the owner. He also makes delicious breakfasts which are more than enough for much of the day. Rooms are a little older, but I actually like that better than the modern stuff. It's very clean, including the bathroom. Just a 5-10 minute walk from central... More
