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

I recently stayed at the Clarin Guest House in Edinburgh, Scotland and was amazed. I have never seen such service and cleanliness before in any hotel or B&B. Kim and Andy couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. They went out of their way to insure my stay was a pleasant one. They helped with booking a flight, suggesting attractions... More

Only stayed for one night, but the best B&B we stayed in during our search for accommodation in Edinburgh. Everything was very clean, good beds, lovely shared bathroom and especially a very friendly host! As exchange students for only 1 semester, it was quite hard to find something and after he heard he immediately start calling to help us. On... More

We had a really pleasant stay at this typical Scottish B&B - tea and biscuits are waiting in your cosy room, the hosts are helpful and pleasant, and the location was great for us. We didn't want to stay in the middle of Edinburgh and this guest house is easy to reach by bus or taxi. We had breakfast at... More

I booked this location for my parents, just on the basis of availbility, cost and previous reviews. My parents thoroughly enjoyed their stay and report his guest house as a good location within 40 mins walk to city centre, close to main bus routes and much quieter than city centre accomodations. The manager was very helpful as my dad is... More

Booked mths in advance, told on arrival that we would need to move rooms after one night, the second room.....bathroom door wouldn't close, shower door wouldn't stay shut. We mentioned these, the shower door was fixed. More than 20 mins walk into town, we bused it. Bus stop at the end of the st. You can get a day ticket... More
