Pros - Friendly staff, comfortable room, quiet location with secluded free car parking. Cons - The bathroom was too small with a tiny hand basin & not enough shelf space for the 3 of us, let alone the 5 that the family room could sleep. The location was slightly further from the town centre than ideal too, but the bus... More

Stayed for 2 nights and will definitely be back. Hotel was lovely, really clean and good room sizes. The owners went above and beyond to make our stay as good as possible. Great location and lovely breakfast as well.

KIm and her husband couldn't have been more helpful. Our room was so clean and well maintained. The location was fantastic. The host's directions for our walk up to Arthur's Seat were spot on. The bus trip into town was easy, convenient and very affordable with DayRider Ticket.

Stayed for a few nights with my daughter for the Edinburgh Fringe. Excellent and would stay again. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful, the room was kept immaculately clean and breakfast was lovely. Can't imagine why you'd pay more for a more central location- a dayrider bus ticket costs £3.50 and the service is regular. You're... More

We recently stayed here as we were visiting for the Fringe. I booked the room way in advance and mainly chose this place as it looked nice and was one of the cheapest I could find for during this festival period. We ended up adding an extra night on nearer the time of us staying so on the first night... More

The room was kept immaculate every day and the location works so well for going.to shows. Its a quick bus ride to the centre and we... More

Very cute guest house. Nice rooms, very clean, and very friendly/helpful staff. Quiet street, a bit of a walk to the city center, but it's not bad if you don't have luggage (if you do I recommend taking a bus, which stops right around the corner). If you don't mind being away from the heart of the city, I definitely... More

Thanks for your nice comments & taking time out to write a review, yes we are a little further from the city centre, however it can be a big advantage, especially at festival & hogmany time, we are not disturbed in the middle of the night with the noise of partygoers singing ha ha! I know this from experience as... More

Clarin House is convenient to the main tourist sites (an easy 20 minute walk) and near good local restaurants (5 to 10 minutes). The beds were comfortable and the room spotless, but it was difficult to find somewhere to put the 5 decorative cushions per twin bed. The main problem we had was the shared bathroom. Though probably not ordinarily... More

Thank you for taking time out to write a review, I am a bit worried as to whom was monopolising the shower room! as this belongs only to 2 twin rooms, your twin room & one other twin room, I think you were probaby waiting so long to use this bathroom due to the door being closed and you did...
