Welcomed by the hostess and treated to all her knowledge of Edinburgh. So friendly. Needed extra fan and had a special diet. All provided with a smile. Most important was that it was about half the price of hotels in Edinburgh which start at around £300 daily rate for three people from our research. Keep up the fantastic cooked to... More

We couldn't get a city centre hotel in the busiest week of the festival/fringe season then found Cherry Tree. Peter is a very charming host and was helpful in arranging our stay and sending detailed directions for our trip from the airport...he was even waiting outside for us when we arrived. But - and it's a big 'but'. There is... More

Nice rooms, showers were ok although the water temperature on the top floor was a bit iffy. Wifi was excellent and the breakfasts were good,msolid Scottish fare (eggs, porredge, cereals, juices etc.). The Host is a font of honest good humor and local knowledge and a great chap. We enjoyed our stay, but our only criticism is that parking is... More

Stayed at Cherry Tree overnight whist viewing flats to rent in Edinburgh. Parking behind the venue in large car park was a plus. Lovely welcome and basement room with separate living area and doors out to paved patio just right for our needs. Heaters in the 2 rooms were used and effective in the chilly evening and overnight. Comfy beds,lovely... More

The property is about 1½ miles from the centre of the city. My wife and I like to walk and it took us about 30 minutes (we're in our 60s). The bus stop is a minute's walk away and service appears to be regular. There is limited free off-road parking and we availed of it for the two days we... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and Peter could not have been more accomodating. He made us feel at home straight away and told us to make it our home for the next 2 days. I have a broken ankle and asked for a ground floor room. He gave us one right at the doorway which was excellent. The room... More

The reviews are pretty consistent and correct. Peter Kwok is amazing as a host. He will be there when you arrive, he has experienced advice, the place is clean, breakfast is whatever you want it to be. We stayed quite a few nights there and needed to get laundry done, He knew just where to take it to get the... More

The host (and owner, I assume), Peter, is very welcoming and courteous. He offered good advice about attractions and dining, and the B&B was well-appointed. No shampoo, but coffee, tea, small tv, bath towel, hand towel, etc., all in room. There was an option for cooked-to-order hot food at breakfast as well and a good selection of pantry items. It...

Had a pleasant stay. Peter, the owner of this B&B is wonderful. The location is a bit downside though but is well connected by bus. The B&B is very well maintained and I am sure you'll have a comfortable stay.

The host, Peter, is probably the most hospitable B&B owner you will ever meet. He goes above and beyond what he needs to do. Other B&B owners should learn a thing or two from him. Overall, I had a very pleasant stay here. It's a bit dated than other B&Bs I've stayed in, but it is very well-kept and again,... More
