I cannot recommend Sheridan Guest House enough for your next stay in Edinburgh. The proprietors are so welcoming and they go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The breakfasts are delicious and the rooms are delightful. In particular, I loved the plants and flowers in the rooms and how well the rooms were laid out. While the... More

Rowena and Tom Watt welcome you to this guest house and make you feel that with their care and attention that you are at home! It is a pretty and very tidy guest house where you have all you need at hand thanks to the lovely owners. The beds are comfortable with nice white linen and perfect pillows, and the... More

This must be the nicest guest house in Edinburgh, chiefly because of its charming owners, Rowena and Tom who make you feel very welcome - and remember your name. Rowena works extremely hard, keeping the house spotless, serving excellent breakfasts and looking after her beloved flowers and plants. The rooms are light and attractively furnished, the beds very comfortable and... More

We stayed here for two nights. The room was extremely clean, comfortable and stylish. The shower has excellent water pressure (which seems to be rare in Great Britain). There is plenty of free on-street parking nearby. It is far from the main Edinburgh attractions but very close to what I will call "downtown" Leith where there are many good restaurants... More

Very clean, owner was super nice, it's in a nice location (though could be closer to tourist attractions), and parking wasn't bad. We had a lovely time. The location and size of the bathroom, which could have been a little bigger, are the only reasons I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5. If you stay here you shouldn't be... More

My daughter and I stayed in this very well run Guest House during July this year and the only reason that it didn't receive 5 stars was the smallness of the bathrooms. This has to be the cleanness hotel that I've ever stayed in, there wasn't a spec of dust anywhere. The breakfast was superb and the beds were extremely... More

We have just come back from two nights staying at the Sheridan, we had a wonderful time. Rowena is a great host. The house was spotless , we had a lovely room with a great bathroom. Never seen so many mirrors in a room. The toiletries were fab. The number 11 bus stops very close to the house and you... More

We stayed here for two nights - my husband had booked it for our anniversary. We arrived a little early as had travelled up from Manchester and the traffic was lighter than expected - Rowena & her daughter made us feel immediately at home. The room was immaculately clean and had little touches that are more typical of a hotel... More
