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... More

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

We recently spent five days at Joppa turrets for the second time. As before, we found the guesthouse beautifully comfortable, quiet, a literal stone's throw from the beach (where my wife jogged each morning). All the rooms are beautifully appointed, warm and cosy in the roughest weather (we go in November). There is an excellent bus service from almost anywhere... More

This is a lovely B&B run by Ann and Phil. The location is situated right next to the beach with excellent views of the Firth of Fourth. The breakfast was divine with a superb full english available. Service and attention was excellent and we wanted for nothing. The guest house is about 4 miles from Edinburgh city centre and with... More

I stayed for a few days with a friend. The location is excellent right next to Portobello beach. All bedrooms have windows to the sea. Breakfast was delicious and I even got a Haggis certificate for eating my first Haggis ;-) It's quite a bit outside town but there are very frequent buses to the center of Edinburgh so this... More

This lovely little B&B is right off the beach in Portobello. If you open your window you can hear the waves, and you can walk along the beach in the morning/evening. The rooms are clean, cosy, quiet and comfortable with nice linens and toiletries however, you have to go up a flight or two of fairly steep stairs to get... More
