Although I normally try to stay closer to a city's center when I'm touring, the beachfront location and direct bus to the Royal Mile more than compensate for the 15 - 20 minute commute. The neighborhood is tranquil, my room was quaint and comfortable with a wonderful view of the ocean, and the breakfast was hearty and delicious. But the... More

Both times I had a fantastic experience, perfectly located just far enough away from the hustle and bustle. Phil and anne are fantastic hosts and made us feel... More

This is a lovely Guest House located right on the beach with stunning sea views and only a 20 minute bus ride into Edinburgh. We spent 3 nights here, I stayed in the single room and my companion had the double bedroom. Both rooms have very good quality beds, with a clean and modern shower en suite, The "Full Scottish"...

We stopped here for two nights as we wanted to visit the Edinburgh festival but without the potential noise that you would get in some of the more central locations. It was perfect in that respect. We abandoned the car in a quiet side road (as there's no parking on site) and either got the excellent bus service (£1.50 each... More

We have just returned from a wonderful week staying at this little gem of a guest house situated almost on the beach at Joppa. The service from Phil and Ann was excellent and our breakfasts around the large table were a delightful melange of food and humour. Why stay in the city centre when this place is so good and...

We spent just under a week for our Honeymoon and it was such a relaxing well needed break. Anne was an excellent host and the breakfast she cooked us every morning set us up for the day. Amazing breakfast. Any info we needed on daily trips Anne gave us helpful tips and advise. After a manic beginning of 2013 organising... More
