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

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
