We stayed here 6 yrs ago and returned for a 5 night stay . Its 10 mins walk to the Commonwealth Pool & we wanted to stay somewhere comfortable. We certainly weren't disappointed. We had room 2, a smaller lovely double ensuite & were very pleased to bring our friends to stay with us, in a beautiful 4 poster room.... More

My family of 3 stayed several nights in March and had a wonderful visit. The proprietors were welcoming and very informative. The rooms were beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. The guest house is close to the bus line so getting around town was easy. My husband is a trail runner and loved being able to run through Holyrood Park... More

We arrived Friday late afternoon, and felt very welcome straight away. Our room was beautyful and the guest booklet in the room offers great suggestions of where to eat and also a very useful map. For us, the location was perfect. We don't like being right in the city centre, and the AmarAgua was in walking distance from the train... More

We are currently staying here for the weekend. This is our first visit and we will definitely return. We are in room 1 and it is beautiful. Breakfast was devine. Very attentive owners without being invasive. A hidden gem you must try.

We have stayed here a number of times, usually room 3 and it has consistently been a pleasure, we are visiting again just before Xmas. Very clean, very comfortable, excellent hosts, excellent breakfasts, all you could wish for in a guest house.

Our family group of 6 spent 3 wonderful days at Amar Agua and Edinburgh. We were all exhausted from our trans-Atlantic flights and anxious to get “freshened-up.” Tony and Dawn-Ann were quite gracious in making sure we could take our rooms earlier in the day. Not knowing what to expect from a B&B, we were overjoyed when Dawn-Ann showed us... More

Stayed at AmarAgua with a friend and loved our stay. Our room was perfect - very clean and comfortable. The facilities feel quaint, but are updated with really nice modern touches. Our bed was comfortable, the bathroom was very nice, it was quiet, and most importantly, very well up-kept. We both could not get enough of the delicious porridge Dawn... More

We had a great stay at AmarAgua last month. The combination of hosts, facilities, and location made a great complement to our Edinburgh experience. Tony and Dawn-Ann are committed to their guests' comfort and enjoyment of the area. The food was excellent and the room most comfortable. To heighten the luxury, I could lay in bed and see "Arthur's Seat"... More
