Booking arrangements were expertly handled by Lis. Although there were staff on the premises we didn't see them unless we rang the bell. .As mentioned by other visitors, we found the double bed very hard.There was a form to order breakfast the night before , which was no problem. (We did feel 8.15- 8.30 was early for a weekend and... More

I do apologise for the shortcomings you experienced. Please be assured that there is always myself, my son or a member of staff on hand to help. New mattresses are ordered for that room and should be with us soon. Guests may come for breakfast until 9 am on all days, last Saturday was an exception. .Measures have been taken... More

The property has some very nice features - high ceilings with cornices and ceiling roses. Ground floor room well positioned for elderly people who can't manage stairs. although ensuite very small and door only opens halfway because of the bed. Garden view not very inspiring. As train was cancelled due to faults on line we had to travel by coach... More

I’m very sorry to hear that your visit to Edinburgh was marred by the delayed train journey and the expense of the taxi from the railway station. I apologise that you found our service lacking. Unfortunately both my son and myself were rather unwell during your couple of days here so were not at our shining best. I have reviewed... More

We stayed at this B&B while coming in & out of Edinburgh on several occasions during our 2 week bicycle trip. Location is very convenient -- right on the bus line to downtown. Our breakfasts were always delicious and exactly as we ordered; Liz packed a nice to-go breakfast for us on the day we left early for the airport.... More

Great customer service, the host even emailed me a few days before to ask if we would like any extra beds in our room. The location £10 taxi ride from the city centre. (seemed expensive for a relatively short distance) The room was very grand and clean (The photos online don't do the rooms justice) We stayed in room 5... More

I went to Edinburgh with a friend for Burns Night so we made a long weekend of it staying at the Arrandale. I've stayed there several times and as usual the breakfast was freshly cooked to order. The weather was freezing, but the room was warm and comfortable. Lis was her usual cheery self and always ready to help. She... More

We stayed 3 nights at this guest house during a city trip to Edinburgh. So most of the time we were out and about. The rooms were decent and clean. We booked 2 rooms for 2 adults + a child each. One room was rather spacious with a double and a single bed. The second room was a bit cramped... More

The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The windows aren't double glazed and so the busy road outside was very noisy, especially when it was raining! I bought some ear plugs which solved the problem. A lovely big breakfast is served up each morning. Good value for money, especially for over the New Year period.

Stayed there with my family over an international rugby weekend. It is well located on the road that runs straight into the Royal Mile (at South Bridge), with lots of buses and taxis passing by. It was slightly worn and dated, but clean and well presented and the breakfast was good, albeit a little mixed up (guests complete detailed orders... More
