My friend and I have just spent a week in Scotland at The Open Golf Championship - and we stayed at Joppa Turrets Guest House for the duration. Anne and Phil were a delight, the room was exactly as stated and was what we expected, with a great view out across the Promenade to the sea. The location - for... More

Joppa Guest House is situated in a beautiful area right on the beach! It's quiet and convenient and our hosts were very good to us! Breakfast was fabulous, yes even the haggis and blood pudding! The room was clean and comfortable with a wonderful view of the beach and ocean. The area was perfect for a stroll or a visit... More

The hosts were friendly & interesting, the location amazing. We wish we could have stayed longer! The weather was amazing & the beach was busy but if the weather had been bad there were games & DVDs provided. Breakfast was fresh & delicious & there was lots of choice. As a twin room you don't often get a sea view... More

I was in town for a 40th university reunion and prebooked at Joppa turrets. Thank goodness I did as it was the Edinburgh Marathon and there was no accommodation to be had for folk who hadn't thought ahead. Friends staying in Edinburgh centre paid a fortune for their hotel rooms while I enjoyed a single room with free wifi at... More

We only stayed two nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Warm, welcoming and relaxing - which was down to the hosts, Phil and Anne. We were blessed to have found Joppa Turrets and would echo the sentiments of the other reviews. It has everything you would want. Will definitely be returning.

I stay in Edinburgh probably once every three or four weeks and Joppa Turrets has everything you would want. Great hosts, clean well equipped bedrooms, fantastic views from your window, sheets that smelled fresh and to cap it all a great Scottish breakfast. Will definitely, definitely be back.

You are assured of a warm welcome from Anne and Phil at this small guest house, the city centre of Edinburgh is easily accessed by a regular bus service. There are lots of nice touches, from a chocolate on your pillow nightly to free wi-fi! A beautiful seaview from your bedroom, a nice quiet setting and hosts who go out... More

Recently spent five enjoyable days at Joppa Turrets, wonderful location, sea views from window and woke every morning to the sound of waves. Easy to get in and out of the city on the bus, and lovely hosts.
