Very good and warm people, we enjoyed 3 nights with my kids on 2 rooms that all was very good. Nice breakfast and helpful Danny and his wife. Thank you guys hope to see you in the future again. The Bus stop is just outside also a park across.

I've stayed here for two nights with my wife during the Edinburgh's Christmas Market, and it was very lovely. Danny and Jasmine, the couple who own the B&B are very helpful and welcoming and they made our stay very enjoyable. The room we stayed in was very big with a double and a single bed and ensuite bathroom. The bathroom... More

A friend and I stayed for two nights and found Danny and Jasmine to be the perfect hosts. The room had both a double and a twin bed as well as a big comfortable easy chair, TV and ensuite bath. I had injured my knee and was confined to the big chair for part of my visit and Danny was... More

After a top to bottom driving tour of Scotland in May of 2015, my niece could not stop raving about the porridge at MacKenzie Guest House. We had comfortable beds in a quiet room, an amazing hot breakfast; fried tomatoes, bacon, sausage, eggs, toast and porridge, though a well stocked cold breakfast buffet; cereal, juice, bread, jams etc. was also...

Hosts Danny and Jasmine provide the perfect respite from the noise and clutter of the Castle area in a cozy setting across from Leith Links (park). It's only a 10-minute bus ride to the Castle Area and passes of various durations are available depending on the length of your stay. The breakfast is well balanced and eggs are made to... More

Really enjoyed my stay here - I felt the hosts were attentive and polite and I enjoyed that they weren't overbearing - just the right amount of attention. Really smashing couple you won't be disappointed here.

Myself and a mate spent the last week of the Fringe festival here and were totally satisfied. The owners are very friendly and attentive and always went out of there way to accommodate us, whether it was with offers of extra breakfast or a spare room key. The room itself was modest but well kept, and the toilet/shower facilities were... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during Feb 2015 for the 6 Nations, very good location you need the no 25 bus from Princess Street which takes you to the door step of the guest house journey takes approx 10 mins.

I stayed here for three nights. The good things: friendly and obliging hands-on owners; room (3) very quiet (faces south roughly); room and bathroom nice and clean on arrival; lovely thick curtains; good breakfast, and not too much that one might be tempted to stuff oneself; extra blankets in room if cold. Also, free on-street parking outside. There was always... More

This B&B doesn't look too promising from the outside - could do with a coat of paint etc. However, this impression is quite wrong since it is a great B&B run by Danny and Jasmine Tang who make one's stay there top quality. Everything inside is excellent quality and done in really good taste. The bed linen, the curtains etc... More
