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

We stayed at the Priestville Guest House for three nights during our driving tour of England, Scotland and Wales. Colin and Trina were excellent hosts - Colin had maps and travel information waiting for us. Priestville Guest House is in a great location - close to a bus stop that takes you right into the city. Our room was small... More

Colin and Trina were very helpful and accommodating. We were a party of 2 couples and a baby and were looking for 2 rooms but having a hard time finding anything due to a marathon that was happening at the same time. Colin offered his family room that had a king, two twins and a cot for the baby. It... More

I wish we had more than 4 nights in this hospitable house!Breakfasts were full and perfect. We enjoyed the real Scottish food. It's wise of Colin to give the map with all usefull directions and spots in the town. It was also very kind of him to give us additional information about the seacoast and the Forth Railway Bridge.The hosts... More

This was our third stay with Colin and Trina at Priestville Guest House. We keep coming back because it is a great home base for being in Edinburgh. The location is wonderful: only a block and a half from the bus stop. A ten minute bus ride and you are in the city centre. We've been given the same room... More

My boyfriend and I spent three nights here over the bank holiday weekend and we loved it. Our train was delayed into Edinburgh so I phoned Colin to say that we were going to arrive late and his words to me were "That's fine, relax, it's your weekend off", what a perfect answer. Colin knows that people are here to... More
