I stayed at the Caravel, not by choice, while I did a weekend trip from London while I was visiting the UK. It was a part of a tour group & this is where they placed it. I loved it. It was very comfortable & clean. They gave us small breakfast items in the morning & the spot this place... More

I originally gave this place a poor review because they cancelled our reservation very last minute. However, to their credit, they tried to make amends by finding us another place to stay nearby and even offered to pay the difference in the room rate! I really appreciated the offer, but had already found other accommodations.

We booked room here on our short trip to Edinburgh & Scotland.Its just few minutes walk from train station & city center. It also has tram stations nearby . Its a nice old period house. Room was clean & comfortable. Sleep quality good. Staff was very polite & co-operative. Would surely recommend for stay in Edinburgh.

Good location, doesn't take long to walk to the city centre. Lovely and clean and all the rooms have a 'different' look about them which makes it more interesting. Breakfast was good but only toast and cereal etc which was fine for me but my husband wanted a hot breakfast so he found a nearby restaurant for his. Lovely friendly... More

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.
