We stayed for two nights this weekend. The accommodation was spotless, the breakfasts were delicious and Andy spent time with us explaining Edinburgh and how we could make the most of visit - most appreciated - highly recommended - if we come to Edinburgh again we know where to stay.

We spent 4 wonderful nights at the Sandaig, which is located outside of Edinburgh in the area of Leith. We were in town for the Fringe and Tattoo Festival. The guest house is located on the bus line and across from a beautiful park. The hosts, Andy and Karen, and the sweet housekeeper from Poland were fabulous and helpful in... More

I will be honest and say the outside of the guest house could be made a bit smarter and the little court yard made beautiful. We were absolutely delighted to be placed in a large room on the ground floor and not to have to lug our bags upstairs. The bed was comfortable and everything we needed was there. Breakfast... More

Stayed for 3 nights and used it as a base for the fringe festival. Good location with free parking. Only a few minutes walk into Leith which has some brilliant bars and restaurants or its a short bus ride into town. The guest house itself was clean warm and comfortable. Andy, the host, was very welcoming and couldn't do enough... More

We stayed at Sandaig for 4 nights for the festival. Upon our arrival, the host Karen & Andy were very welcoming and gave us all the information we needed and suggestions of places to go. We did take their suggestions going to restaurants nearby and it was wonderful. They couldn't be more helpful. We stayed in a superior room and... More

The first look at the Sandaig and you could be put off but looks are deceiving and this is a wonderful place to stay and it is highly recommended. Lovely décor in the room and the en-suite was very tasteful - that aligned with friendly hosts and a breakfast to die for leads to a excellent place to stay when... More

Although the rooms look good, their function is very poor. No hanging room for clothing. No place to sit to do hair or makeup. Tea making facility is sad, kettle had to be filled in the shower as it would not fit under the tap and kettle had to be placed on the floor to heat it as there is... More

Hi, Sorry to hear that you were not too happy with your stay at Sandaig and especially the breakfast which most of the people love it so much. Please understand that the breakfast is not like All you can eat style. Every guest is given a breakfast menu to pick for one starter and one main course, therefore, having two... More

This place is dead easy to find and the big bonus is that it has parking in the street right outside. There's a bus stop a few yards away and with the fantastic Edinburgh City Travel App you'll not need to use your car during your stay. Our room was clean and well equipped with a large en-suite bathroom. The... More

Andrew and Karen run a beautiful guest house. Located across from a quiet park, Leith Links, it's an easy 10 minute bus ride to downtown Edinburgh. Andrew gave us great advice for attractions and restaurants and the room, breakfasts and welcome were impeccable!
