Set outside the central business district of Edinburgh, the AmarAgua Guest House is a lovely B and B. Our room was on the 2nd floor, with no elevator, and was large and beautifully decorated. The hosts, Tony and Dawn-Ann, were friendly hosts and made our cab arrangements for our early morning departure. We could walk to the center of Edinburgh... More

If the option had shown a zero this would have been my opinion. We expected more from portugeuse citizen. What a huge disappointment. Fake hospitality, unclean rooms, concerned about money first priority. We booked for one week based on reading reviews but moved out after 2nd night.

This is a fraudulent review and we we know where it originates from. Since the TV programme "Four In a Bed" was re- shown on the 2nd of January, some of the contestants from the programme are not pleased at the fact that AmarAgua has had such a POSITIVE response from the public, therefore they feel the "need" to retaliate....

Firstly, the owners, Tony and Dawn-Ann are such warm and friendly hosts. We were away celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and throughout the years have stayed in numerous B&B's....AmarAgua Guest House is among the best!

We came here for our honeymoon. All the rest of our hotels on this trip were five-star luxe properties, but since it was her first visit to the UK, I wanted my wife to have at least one experience of a great B&B. Lo and behold, of course, this turned out to be a better lodging than several of those... More

My husband and I stayed here as part of a month trip around UK. We were able to park right outside, and easy walking distance to town, shops and attractions. Nicely decorated, comfortable and clean room upstairs, very private. Beautiful choices for breakfast each day- didn't need lunch at all! Good recommendations of places to eat at night. Wonderful hosts... More

We spent 3 nights with Tony and Dawn-Ann, and can't say enough! I have stayed in many B & B 's around the world, and have not encountered any with better amenities.

The owner was helpful and we stayed in a large room that was nicely decorated. The breakfast was excellent. We were able to walk to all the main sites. Street parking is available if needed, however we turned in our rental car prior to our stay in Edinburgh.

Dawn-Ann and Tony are fantastic hosts. Their breakfasts were excellent, their Belgium Waffle was my favorite. Anything we asked for help, they would do and usually one step better. When we asked for some ice to help with a foot issue, they brought ice and a frozen gel pack daily.

We stay here at least once a year when visiting Edinburgh and have never been disappointed with the rooms, breakfasts or the warm welcome we receive. The rooms are always clean as is the rest of the house and the standards are high. The location whilst not immediately close to the centre is close enough with easy access and parking.... More
