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

It's out of the central part of town but buses (11 or 13 ?) will take you downtown in minutes. It's a quiet location with great breakfasts. Tony will keep you entertained while his wife fills you up. Room was small but well appointed and the facilities worked just fine. Save some money and stay out here for the quiet... More

After reading reviews on trip advisor we stayed here with great expectations, and weren't disappointed! We were greeted upon arrival by the lady of the house, who took the time and trouble to explain maps, routes and buses without prompting. We were then shown up to our room, (1), which was a delightful four poster with a lovely shower room... More

The room we stayed in (room 5) was fantastic!!! The B&B is far enough from the hustle and bustle of the city to be a nice retreat and it was a great value, but it is still very close by foot and bus to get to the center of activity. The breakfasts each morning were restaurant quality and Dawn-Ann's cooking... More
