Our room was very spacious, the beds were extremely comfortable and the bathroom was a decent size with a wonderful shower. Breakfast was nice with a good selection and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. It was a 10 minute walk to the... More

Highly recommended. The location is very good – just 10-15 minutes walk to the city centre. Buses are also available from close by to anywhere around Edinburgh. The owner was really welcoming and helped us with any query that we had. The room was warm, clean and spacious. We were provided with coffee facilities and a TV with numerous good... More

Caravel guest house is a nice B & B in Edinburgh. Close to the city center and walked every day to the main attractions. We had a very large room. Nice and comfortable beds. Breakfast was good. Staff are very polite and helpful. Bathroom was very small with this huge room! If I was overweight I would have difficulty sitting... More

We stayed for the 2 nights. When we arrived it had just gone 11.30pm, but the owner had kindly stayed up to wait for us(although we had arranged to arrive 1 hour before). The room, although basic was very clean and the bed was super comfy, very nice bathrooms too! In the morning we went down for breakfast, the food... More

After a bit of confusion over the initial booking via Visit Scotland's web portal, a phone call clinched the booking. They prefer payment in cash although they can take cards. My single room, which was obviously not one of their first grade rooms, had a paper-thin wall, allowing me to listen to my neighbour's snores and phone alerts. The communal... More

On our arrival it just happened that our room was already allocated, the owners were so apologetic and immediately got us an upgrade to The Royal Mile in 4* apartments and met the extra cost. They arranged for a car to pick us up and provided us with maps and the offer of returning to their B+B for our breakfast,... More
