The Clarin Guest House is a good deal at the price. It is exceptionally clean and the rooms are comfortable. It is in a quiet location but within walking distance to good local restaurants and taverns. We were unable to get an "ensuite" room and had to share the bath, but never had any problems with access. Rooms on the... More

Me and my mother stayed her for 3 nights in may, and we had the best time! Kim and Andy went out of their way to help us with whatever we needed help with, wether it was borrowing a laptop, finding places to eat, where to take the bus from or what to to in Edinburgh. We got the family... More

We had booked clarin guest house via hotwire 2 months ago and went there today and were looking forward to our stay having read the good reviews. As we arrived there was Kim smiling and welcoming us in and came back in a panic not being able to find our reservation. She tried everything with the company that she is... More

Thank you Kim & Andy! Excellent value for money. Close by bus stops to catch regular bus to/from Edinburgh City Centre. Room 3 is a very modern family room with double bed, bunk bed and en-suite. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who were very helpful and attentive. Breakfast was great and really filling. I rated sleep quality... More

Your lovely review was much appreciated thank you for taking time out to write this, I know you stated an arrival time of 5pm, however this was our fault (my sincere apology), we were being kind and let the previous guests stay a little longer, due to the fact you would not arrive till 5pm, when you arrived early at...

This guest house was a good value with sparse but clean furnishings. Our stay started off okay with Andy checking us in and offering maps of Edinburgh. We were informed right away that although we had booked a two night stay we would be moving rooms after the first night due to the fact that we booked online. After being... More

The couple who run this guesthouse are extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms are nice and the food is good. For the price, this guesthouse is excellent value. Although not in the center of Edinburgh (about a 20 min walk), there is a convenient busline that goes straight to the city center nearby.

We stayed here in July while we were up for the weekend for my girlfriends birthday. The hotel is a lovely old building. The room we were in was quite big and very clean.

After reviewing on-line the many guest houses in Edinburgh we confidently settled on Clarin House because we wanted off-street parking, easy access to the heart of Edinburgh and a decent breakfast. We were not disappointed. Clarin House is just a short, bus trip direct to the Royal Mile. Our hire car was fine, parked down behind the house in view... More
