Stayed here for a couple of nights during storm " Desmond" but having previously lived in Scotland for 24 years it did't dampen our spirits! The Clarin is a room only guest house, the room we stayed in had it's own on suite, it was beautifully decorated very clean and comfortable and very warm. It is a leisurely 30 minute... More

Would recommend this hotel. It's cosy and relatively convenient located. I found the bed too soft but partner was fine. Walls are thinner than in a hotel so bear this in mind and bring ear plugs like me

4th year coming here now and great as ever. Kim and Andy are fonts of knowledge and very friendly. The beds are soooo comfy and the room is always immaculate. Drove for first time this year and its perfect. Free parking behind the B&B. Very easy to get to A1 without going anywhere near city centre. Sainsburys petrol station at... More

Stayed here for three nights- Clarin Guest House is about a 20 minute walk into the city centre. Very comfortable amenities and the private parking security an added plus! The only downside being no included breakfast but our hosts were extremely helpful in recommending several options just down the road! All-in-all, great place to relax at the end of a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. We were given a very warm welcome by Andy who gave lots of information on local places to eat and drink at reasonable prices. It is obviously more expensive the more closer to the centre of town you go. The accommodation is for room only but was spacious, bright... More

This was a very nice B&B although no breakfast now. We caught the bus out from the train station at Waverley but that was the only time..we walked into town and back again on the two days we stayed..sorry it wasn't longer, but next time hope it will be. Owner was very helpful with maps and walks around the neighbourhood.... More

We stayed at Clarin Guest House in June 2015. It was in an ideal location, just a short walk into the city. Kim was very friendly and helpful. She was wonderful with giving us directions about different walking routes. Clarin Guest House was very clean and quiet. We enjoyed our stay.

Very nice B&B - clean and welcoming team. Location great for getting into city centre (regular bus route on road outside). Drawback was no breakfast available - not a big issue for us as we were out and about, but worth checking with the team when booking if this is a must have for you (I believe they used to... More

I was obliged to accept the booking condition which was that I had to book two days and pay for 1 in advance. I have never had to do that before. The private secure parking, which was the reason I chose this hotel, was probably no more secure than any other guest house. For £60, there was no breakfast included... More

We spent 2 nights in this B&B, we were very happy as the room was well maintained. The room was smelling good and the bed linens and pillows were clean. I was able to have a restful sleep after a long walk at the Royal Mile. When we woke up next day, breakfast was served on time as requested. We... More
