I stayed here for 3 nights on a short break to Edinburgh. On arrival I was shown to my room which was a cosy single on the first floor. The room was very clean and comfortable. It was at the front of the guest house but was still very quiet. I booked knowing about the shared facilities but luckily I... More

We stayed at the Airlie Guest House during Hogmanay and really enjoyed it. The B&B is well connected to the city centre via bus. Rooms are not large but cosy. The host was outstandingly friendly and when serving the freshly cooked breakfast he spared no effort to ensure that all the guest feel very happy. Can only recommend it.

We stayed for three nights during this year's Fringe Festival. The guesthouse was very good value, and well located, so ideal for our visit. Private parking at the back was an added bonus, as well. The room was really nice, as were all of the staff, but the only disappointing aspect of our stay was the breakfast. As a vegetarian,... More

Peter is running a great guest house in Edinburgh. Only about 1 mile away from the main center. Upon entering you will notice Peter's broad smile and friendly personality. The entry way has nicely painted walls and a staircase. The room we stayed in was painted baby blue with slightly darker blue bed sheets and comforter. All in all, extremely... More

We were not told that the double ensuite room would be in the basement. Decent size room and bath but the basement has a damp musty feel. We asked for a room on the main or upper floors but were told there were none for our 2 night stay. The owner was nice enough to offer a couple of other... More

Had a lovely 2 night stay here recently. Lovely little guest house in a prime location. Great welcome from the owner who showed me to my room which is brilliantly set out with everything you should need. The place is a little dated but has plenty of character and that actually adds to the house. Great value also and with... More

Our room was clean and comfortable and, as it was at the back of the house, very quiet. Breakfast was plentiful, piping hot, and delivered with a smile. I wasn't a fan of the shared toilet and shower room, although they were clean and functional, but we booked knowing we had shared facilities with one other room, and to be... More

I was going to events at the Fringe Festival. I wanted a nice, clean and comfortable place to base myself - this was it. The greeting initially and each and every day was pleasant and helpful. The food was well prepared, filling and substantial enough. The room was clean, comfortable and tidy. I got everything that I needed and paid... More

We stayed here for a long period - we had a warm welcome and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, clean and the same can be said about the shared toilet/shower. It is in a good location and next to bus stops. However in the time we stayed our sheets weren't changed (and they really... More

Stayed in Edinburgh at the Airlie for a week in February, my husband was over in Scotland on business. We had lovely accommodation here, The Flynns are great hosts and couldn't give our family enough help and attention. We had a large family room with a shower and toilet and wash basin inside the room. Fiona offered books and toys... More
