Initial impression was not overwhelming from the outside. However, the owners were very welcoming and friendly, and quickly made me feel better about the place. The rooms have been upgraded, and whilst not the best room I have ever stayed in, was very clean and well maintained. Great breakfast, even if the times are a little rigid. The full Scottish...

The couple who own this bed and breakfast, Andy and Karen, obviously care about the place and make sure that their guests are comfortable and happy. Karen was there to welcome us and showed us around the house and to our room. The room itself was gorgeous and very updated. Fastest wi-fi ever! The breakfast was lovely and the place... More

Stayed here while on a golf trip in and around Edinburgh and East Lothian. Great location for short walk to Leith bars and restaurants or short trip into Edinburgh city centre. Easy to drive to and plenty of free parking nearby. Really friendly welcome from owners and really good breakfast. Rooms are nice, stylish and individual - really clean and... More

Our third time back, to do The Moonwalk. We have stayed here twice before. This year Andy and Karen are new owners. The rooms are immaculate and clean. The breakfast still fantastic...set you up for the day. Easy to park outside (on road). Bus route straight to the city, but it's an easy walk to the city and waterfront etc.... More

We had intended staying only 1 night at Sandaig Guest House but because we received such a lovely welcome plus the room was very clean and cosy we decided to stay another night and see more sights of Edinburgh. We had a lovely view of the park and easy access to the bus services into the city. The young couple... More

We stayed at Sandaig for two nights & found it to be a great experience overall. The hosts were warmly welcoming & made you feel special. The house is opposite a park & bus stop, the bus stop made it easy to get into the city. Parking is free & just in the street, we parked opposite to the house.... More

Spent a long weekend here with my boyfriend and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and the tour we were given when we checked in was a nice touch. The whole guest house was nicely decorated and the selection of breakfasts that were available each morning were fantastic. The location is... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for the weekend and we were both incredibly impressed! We were warmly welcomed to a lovely smelling guesthouse by a very friendly Andy - the host. We were given a quick tour of the downstairs rooms (communal lounge type area and breakfast room), both beautifully decorated and spotless! We were given a quick briefing... More
