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

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
