The room was very nice and comfortable after a long day of walking. Harry was very accommodating and helpful to us. The house was very quite and peaceful and we had a good night's rest. The breakfast was delicious and there were many choices.

This was our second visit to the Craigmoss guest house. Once again, the accommodations were comfortable and homey, and the location is so convenient. We had a scheduling mix-up, and Isabelle was so helpful in getting everything sorted out. A great rest, wonderful breakfast, good location and terrific people - we'll certainly be back!

This guest house is a bit of a trip from the center of Edinburgh. It is on a road with significant road noise. Another reviewer mentions the bus station in front. It was quite warm when we stayed and the open window let the noise and smell of the bus an other traffic into the room. The bed was comfortable,... More

This was our first and probably last ever stay in a B&B. The room was very very very (I am writing very 3 times to reiterate how small the room was when 4 beds are cramped in a room). With 4 beds in the room there was absolutely no space to move - we literally had less than a foot... More

Craigmoss, Owner at Craigmoss Guest House, responded to this review

I am sorry you did not like your room but you were 4 adults with a lot of luggage and you booked a family room which is for two adults and two children. Of course the price you paid was significantly cheaper that booking two double or two twin rooms which you would know. You also chose to come in... More

Perfect location – at a safe distance from the madding crowds, yet an easy walk away from the main sights and the shopping centre. Cosy, well-equipped rooms; excellent breakfast. The real asset of this B&B is the ever-smiling, warm and welcoming Isabelle, always there to keep her guests happy!

The location was great - there is a bus stop just out the front door. It was easy to get to things. We were booked into the family room - two adults and two children. It was very tight -- just enough room to walk between the beds. The room had one double bed and two twin beds. The room... More

All the facilities were in an excellent condition and were kept clean throughout our stay. Also given an excellent choice for breakfast as well as tea making facilities in the room. The... More

I stayed at this bed and breakfast for a night with my husband just as the commonwealth games were finished.The price at the time was a little higher than our usual but we were desperate and not willing to look further. The place was very clean and gorgeous. The owner was super nice and helpful. We needed an accomodation for... More

The owners of this bed and breakfast were extremely nice and helpful to me and my wife. During perhaps the busiest time (common wealth games / fringe festival) we were struggling to find accommodations. The owners quickly called up another bed and breakfast and were able to direct us to another b&b. All in all, great breakfast, good quiet location,... More
