I booked a room at the Caravel Guest House 6 months ago and got an email from them this morning telling me that there was some kind of error and as a result I do not have accommodation here after all. I can only suspect that my room was rebooked to someone paying a higher rate. I leave in 5... More

We arrived and were greeted by the lovely owner who was so helpful in making sure we were comfortable and had all of our needs met. We had the most charming room that had five wrought iron beds and we felt like we were in the Nanny McPhee film. It had old world charm and is a great price. My... More

It is very well located and within walking distance from most central places in Edinburgh. Lots of dining options nearby. Cost is very reasonable. The rooms are spacious and toilets clean. Decor is antique and staff are pretty helpful though business like. Would surely recommend as it is well worth the price you pay for the size of rooms that... More

This is a great little guest house. The owner is exceptionally friendly and helpful, the rooms are nice and the location is perfect - a 10 minute walk to the centre and lots of good pubs and restaurants nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and when I go back to Edinburgh I will stay here again.

This is in a quiet neighbourhood but close to Broughton street that has many restaurants. A table serves as the reception signifying austerity, but I am relieved to see large rooms that are comfortable. The bath is small though. Note that breakfast is available only after 8 am. Also they might tell you that the Train station is only 10... More

Stayed for a weekend with 2 school friends - we booked a family room so we had plenty of time to talk and catch up! We were given a warm welcome, and were impressed by the friendly and helpful attitude throughout our stay. Our room on the lower ground floor was spacious and spotlessly clean, if a little old fashioned... More

My sister and I satyed at the Caravel Guest House in January 2015. We were greeted by an extremely friendly face of the owner who asked us to choose our rooms. We took a grand room next to the entrance and were generally pleased with the decor. However, the bathroom light had a few issues. I think what made Caravel... More

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
