The Arrandale was perfectly situated approx. a mile and a half from the Princess Street/Royal Mile area. There were plentiful buses servicing the road that the guest house is on. The room was a good size and well equipped. The breakfast was good and set you up for the day. There was plenty of tourist information on display to help... More

The Arrandale was easy to find as it`s on the main road south out of the city centre, about 1 and half miles. Bus stop 1 min walk up road, every 10 mins, £1.50 single journey. Lis has provided all details needed for buses. She even gave us some change one day, as exact money is needed! The Arrandale is... More

We booked late via a 3rd party for one night and Lis contacted me shortly after booking to confirm arrival time. A fair price for the service offered - room ( number 2) was well equipped & clean, can't really ask for much more.

Booking arrangements were expertly handled by Lis.

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
