We visited Sandaig in December. Karen and Andy were very friendly and we felt very welcome. Room was very spacious and clean. Complimentary sherry was a good touch. Parking was easy where was right in front of the guesthouse. Breakfast's choice was very good as it came with starter and main course. Loved this place!!! Will be back for sure!!!

We arrived early at the guesthouse & the owners were very helpful & welcoming despite it being breakfast service time. The service provided by Andy & Karen is excellent. The cooked breakfasts are great and served very quickly. The bedrooms are very clean, comfortable and decorated tastefully. The guesthouse is right beside a bus stop with a regular service to...

I would highly recommend this fabulous guest house to any type of visitors. Lovely friendly staff, great rooms and a 10 minute bus ride to Edinburgh City centre! Even a decanter of sherry in the room when you arrive. Will definitely be back for a holiday stay.

You dont get better than this, from the greeting to goodbyes it's excellent. Andy and Karen are very friendly, polite and helpful. Perfect clean, tidy and tastefully furnished rooms. Very delicious and tasty breakfast. The location is beautifull too. A 2 night stay at Saindaig wasn't enough- we'd have loved to stay for longer.

Warm welcome and lots of information provided on arrival. Our room was clean, well equipped with some nice additional touches. A good choice at breakfast with all food freshly prepared. Location very convenient for regular bus service to the city centre, although guest house is in a quiet location overlooking parkland.

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
