The place is just horrible - it is located right on a street with heavy traffic so it is extremely noisy. Cheap plastic windows can't be closed so you feel like you are sleeping in the middle of the street. The house smells some insect poison. The wi-fi is sporadic. The interior of the room is cheap and trashy with... More

I have never stayed in a guest of this standard before. The rooms were immaculate and designed to a very high standard which would give a few five star hotels a run. Free WiFi was an added bonus as I was working in Edinburgh and needed internet access. I stayed in the twin room which had no on-suite but this... More

It is not central located but it is 10 - 15 minutes walk from the city center, which is fine. Rooms are nice, toilets are cleaned and good. Not noisy, nice and tasty breakfast. Not expensive at all. The house is nice and cozy.

My partner and I booked a room at the Conifer's Guest House initially staying for two nights but as we enjoyed our stay so much we stayed an extra night! From the minute we booked the Guest House we were very pleased with the communication from the owner, David and how welcoming and friendly him and his wife were. Our... More

My husband and I were luckily to get the big room. We stayed in room number 4. Beautiful big room with a bay window and street view. The owner David was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the city and tourist attractions. The breakfast was very good as well. The location is good as well, not too close from the main... More

First time in Scotland, visited Edinburgh for my birthday weekend. The Conifers is a lovely homely B&B, spotlessly clean, good breakfast and friendly hosts. We had room 4 which is extremely comfortable. Would recommend to friends.

We had alovely stay at Conifers. David was managing alone as his wife was away, but that didn't seem to phase him. We had a lovely breakfast and David was very knowledgeable about the local area and attractions we may find interesting in Edinburgh. The rooms were clean and quiet, the beds comfortable and the breakfast delicious. The bus stop... More

This is the first b&b I have stayed in for years as I would usually choose a hotel. I was pleasantly surprised. Room was good, although the shared bathroom was a little small. You can walk into the city centre in less than 20 mins. There is free car parking on the street which is an added bonus in a... More
