Great hospitality, good price/quality. 30m from the city center, but you have the bus for 1.5 GBP. It's worth it. Ursula is a great host. One day I did not have time for breakfast and she prepared a takeaway so that I would not depart without breakfast.

My wife and I were on a 11-day trip through Scotland in May, 2015, and our journey began with three nights at Ardgarth. We loved it. Ursula was a terrific hostess: kind, patient, and knowledgable. Our room was quite comfortable and well-provisioned. The breakfasts were, I think, the best of our trip. Even the haggis was tasty! The area was... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in May. The room was advertised as wheelchair-accessible, and it was, with clearance under the bed for a hoist. Ursula willingly removed an armchair to make more space. Breakfast was magnificent. Portobello promenade is only two blocks away, for sea air, a fantastic view and an excellent restaurant. All the Edinburgh buses take wheelchairs. A... More

Stayed at the Ardgarth for 3 nights at the end of March. The double ensuite was warm, cosy immaculately clean and had everything we could ask for. Ursula is a great source of information about the local area and Edinburgh - and produces a marvellous Scottish breakfast to start the day. Although we thought the breakfast time was a little...

Stayed at the Ardgarth for two nights over Easter. A lovely warm welcome from Ursula and a very comfortable room with all the facilities you would find in a good hotel. Excellent breakfast served by two very pleasant young members of staff. Easy parking. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Ursula also gave much appreciated community information to my daughter who... More

A couple of years ago we stayed at this quaint B&B steps from the beach and about a 10 minute bus ride to downtown Edinburgh. It's quiet. We didn't even know a sports team was also staying there until breakfast the next morning! Nice staff and the breakfast was filling.

The Ardgarth Guest House is a wonderful B&B to stay at. Mrs. Ursula Wright and her staff made it a real joy to stay here. The room and home is well kept and the meals are very well planned and delicious. My wife and I were celebrating our 40th anniversary and they made a special effort to share a memorable... More

This was the first time I've ever stayed in a bed and breakfast and it was a wonderful experience. Ursula was a wonderful B&B manager and all-around go-to person for questions from the location of the nearest laundrette to bus information and the best restaurants within walking distance. She was always available to assist with whatever was needed and was... More
