I often stay at Sandeman House when in Edinburgh. The location is perfect in a quiet residential area in the south side of the city. Parking is just a couple of minutes walk and the guest house is close to plenty places to dine and a small well stocked supermarket. The bedrooms are extremely comfortable and breakfast is a real...

Everyone will find something to appreciate with this walking tour. The guide is sympathetic and energetic. She talks about the history of Scotland and some anecdotes from de city. It lasts 2h30 but you don't have to walk a lot. The only bad thing was that the weather was too cold.

We made a last minute booking for the Sandeman house over New Years and were lucky enough that there was a cancellation - we weren't expecting much. The house is in the historic register, and is well located in Morningside. The room we stayed in, the bay room, was large, the bed was really comfortable and the bedding was just... More

I stay regular at Sandeman House when working in Edinburgh. On this visit I was offered a different room and was extremely impressed. It was a large front facing room with a bay window housing a delightful tartan clad chaise long which looked fantastic in the bright room. The bed was huge and extremely comfortable. I always sleep well here... More

A friendly welcome and a good breakfast. Our en-suite rooms were rather frugal and the plumbing needed a safe-breakers sensitivity to perform properly. Our host was most helpful in finding us a car park (on a quiet street) some 40 minutes walk from the B&B, to where he drove us, to and from.

Sandeman House is in a quite residential location with free parking close by. Avery warm welcome into a comfortable spacious room which was very quiet despite overlooking the road at the front of the property. Breakfast is freshly made to order and was absolutely delicious taken in the dining room overlooking the garden. There are plenty places wihin strolling distance... More

I stayed here for work in September 2012 for 2 weeks, and totally absolutely loved the experience! Neil and Joyce were the best hosts! It's a lovely cosy home, and the room was spanking clean, with nice new sheets, wifi, and everything I needed. Kettle and Yorkshire tea bags to make my own evening tea, and chair by the window...

What a find! We have family in Edinburgh but always prefer to have our own space and own bathroom, have gone down the Travelodge route and never again so thought we would try a B&B / Guest House. Again not our usual choice as we like the anonymity of a hotel however, we were pleasantly surprised and will definitely use... More
