Clean, comfortable, our upstairs bedroom was just the right size for my wife and I. Colin was very helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. Our breakfasts there were the best of our 10 day trip to Scotland and England. We had an early departure time. Colin made sure we had more than cereal, fruit and coffee. He sent us away... More

Our trip to Edinburgh was made memorable by our stay at Priestville. A lovely house in a quiet neighbourhood, warmly welcoming and most obliging hosts, Trina and Colin. First class service in every way, excellent tips for visiting and places to eat, varied and most generous breakfasts, we felt most comfortable and enjoyed being treated with such kindness during the...

Coming up on our 4th stay with Colin Trina. Our daughter has moved to Scotland. There will be many visits in the future and we will continue to stay at Priestville Guest House. Great location, great breakfast, and great hosts

We had a lovely time during our stay at Priestville. Colin the host gave us some great advice about getting around the city and the best places to eat. As the guest house is located not far from Holyrood park he told us about a scenic walk into the city through the park - it was great. We couldn't fault... More

My family and I spent two nights here just before the annual festival. Our room was spacious, giving us a lot of room to spread out, whether it was on the beds or easy chairs. The beds were comfortable. Breakfasts here were outstanding with the best haggis and smoked salmon we'd had during the course of our visit to Scotland.... More

We had a most wonderful time in Scotland. The scenery was breathtaking and the people were some of the most hospitable we have ever met anywhere. That was until we checked into this house. Not to discredit the host Colin's effort to make us feel welcome, this place wasn't exactly what we had come to expect based on other reviewers'... More

We got a room where we had to share a bathroom - on the first floor, and we hardly shared with anyone. I never had to wait to use the bathroom. The room was comfortable, big bed. It had a tv, no fridge, and a sink in the room which was nice. They had movies available to use, hairdryers, shampoo... More

On arrival, Colin provided us with all the information we could want when visiting Edinburgh. We are a family of five, with three teenagers and we stayed in the family room on the top floor. The last set of stairs are small and windy(which is common, we are finding!). This was fine for us but may cause difficulties for families... More

Recently stayed three nights with the rooms being comfortable with king size bed and average quality ensuite. Excellent hosts with Colin providing maps, bus information, restaurant recommendations and other helpful information. Good hearty breakfast. Haggis even provided for those wishing to try it. All in all very pleasant stay. Located about 30 minutes walking from old city but bus stop... More

Our family stayed at the Priestville GH for three nights during our three week family vacation of England, Scotland, & Ireland. Colin & Trina were outstanding hosts and city stewards, providing us a wealth of information about the city - from city maps, to public transportation, to history of the city. The family room we stayed in was very large... More
