The price was such a bargain. Friendly and helpful staff. Quite neighbourhood but easy to find the location. Clean and tidy rooms. Nice experience to stay. Though the heater was not strong enough, the blankets were warm enough~

I stayed 3 nights in Edimburgh. It´s easy to find when you come from the airport since tram/trains and buses leave you close to the hotel. It´s a few blocks away from the center of the city. Breakfast was OK and the staff was very friendly. The bed was really comfortable and the room very clean. The room had a... More

Great little place to stay. Only took 10 minutes to walk to the main part of Edinburgh so great location and they also offer parking for minimal cost or there is street parking. Room was very intersting with horrible colour coordination but beds were comfortable and room was clean. Only downsides were the bathroom light didn't come on until you... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in September 2014. The good points are that the guest house is convenient for central Edinburgh and the room was clean. However we gave up on the breakfasts after realising they were inedible! Also the room seemed to have a funny smell that we couldn't identify and the washbasin was damaged to the extent that...

My son and I stayed here for 3 nights during the Commonwealth Games. Excellent location for restaurants, coffee shops and tram/ trains. The owners were extremely helpful with directions and local knowledge. Clean accomodation, decent breakfast and polite and friendly staff.

Stayed here with 4 other of my friends, the price was brilliant! For bed and breakfast each we paid £62 for 2 nights. The staff were friendly although the breakfast man could of been a little bit more accommodating. Everything basic was there and it was clean. Although the very annoying thing is that in order for the light of... More

Caravel is in a nice part of the city right on the edge of the "old city" and close to the tram stop (though up a good hill). We were greeted very warmly by the manager of the B & B. The rooms were spacious enough but no thoroughly cleaned (lost of dust on top of things). It was a... More

Booked 3 nights at £110 per night during the Fringe. This B&B is reasonably priced. On the plus side the room was large with a double and 2 single beds...for the 3 of us. Room and bathroom clean, and the outside road quiet.Only problem was the light only comes on once you shut the bathroom door...a real pain. The breakfast... More

This was the most reasonably priced property I could find when looking for somewhere to stay whilst watching the Games in Glasgow and even though it was in Edinburgh we found it more than suitable for our needs. It's only about a 10 minute walk from the train station and there are places to eat and rink withing 3 minutes... More

The location is not too far from the city center, it takes only 10 minutes by bus. Very good service. Nice and clean room. I and my family really love the interior design and decoration of this guesthouse.
