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

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

We had a wonderful stay here. the location is good, bus stop is right in front of the house. it only takes about 10 minutes walking to the Carlton Hill. the room is cozy, though bathroom is a little small and the drain seems not working well. bed is comfortable. Scottish breakfasts are fabulous.

Spent 3 nights here during a short trip to Edinburgh. Easy to find with lots on street parking available. The room was very comfortable and quiet. The bathroom is a little cosy, but entirely functional. David was an extremely helpful host and the cooked Scottish breakfast was fabulous. Many thanks,

I stayed here due to the minimal choice of placed during the festival and it was basic but good. Charged £100 a night with no payment options apart from cash but room was comfy and clean. Town was surprisingly close and only took 6 min walk but loads of buses too. Dont know what normal price is but I think... More
