This is the fifth time that we have stayed at the Sandaig but the first under the new ownership and its good to see that Andy and Karen have managed to maintain the same high quality standards that the previous owners had. The breakfasts had always been a major feature on previous stays and it was pleasing to note that... More

I stayed for two nights. Lovely size room, good facilities, clean and tidy. Large size bathroom with shower. Breakfast was cooked to order, with a good variety available. Tea was excellent. Better than any served in the tea shops during the day. Very friendly staff, who were happy to take the time to talk. Easy access into the city via... More

We stayed here for only 2 days in the family room which was very good and probably the best room we've ever stayed in. There was an extra bed for the kids but still it was quite big enough for the four of us. The breakfast was fantastic and even though it was home cooked there was quite a variety.... More

This without a doubt was the best B&B we stayed at during our 1 week stay in Scotland . We, stayed at the Sandsig for 3 nights. The rooms were large, well appointed, and clean. The breakfast menu was extensive and the food served was excellent. Adam and staff went well beyond the norm in making our stay there memorable.... More

The staff (or Andy, the one guy we met) was very friendly and welcoming. The room was a decent size with a big bathroom that had both bath and shower and the breakfasts were lovely. That's the positives of our stay. The bed was very uncomfortable (hey, we all look for different things in a comfy bed right?) With torn... More

We managed to tag on a couple of days for ourselves to a business trip and wanted to stay in Leith, our 'old stomping grounds.' Reviews here and elsewhere suggested that the Sandaig might be the ideal choice. Andy and Karen were very personable hosts, giving us early access to the room to drop our bags on the first day....

As someone who normally stays in a hotel I was a bit dubious when my husband suggested staying in a B&B in Edinburgh. We arrived around 2.30pm and found a parking space right outside the guesthouse. On arrival Andy welcomed us and give us a short tour including the room were breakfast was served each morning. I was surprised to... More

A colleague of mine and me went over to Edinburgh for a business trip. SInce seh had previosly lived in the UK, she recommended to stay at a B&B, so we did a little research and chose The Sandaig. Three criteria are important when it comes to a satisfactory stay: a) A clean room b) A comfortable bed c) A... More

I did not stay at the hotel so cannot comment on the facilities. I booked a room on line whilst on business through a travel company and within 2 days the hotel had taken the funds from my account about 9 days before I was due to be there. My client had to change my date so I tried to... More
