Stayed here for 4 nights and it was just perfect. It's not that expensive and you get good service for the money you pay. The rooms are cozy and clean. The service is very good and the owner Neill is very kind. Breakfast is good en well served. It's a long walk to the centre of the city, but the... More

My husband and I often visit Edinburgh to visit family for weekends. Have stayed at Smith's Guest House several times a year for the last 5 years. Within 30 mins walking distance of the Royal Mile (we can do it and we're in our 60's and 70's). Neil and Moyra are friendly hosts. Tasty breakfast and basic nice clean room.... More

I was a bit wary of booking this place because of some of the negative reviews, but I only needed somewhere to sleep for a couple of nights, and it was very cheap, so I risked it. It's absolutely fine - really good value for money. A previous reviewer complained about the smell of dog, and yes, when you enter... More

Clean and simple guesthouse - I really Enjoyed our stay here. We had come up to Edinburgh for a weekend stay. We arrived late but the landlord had organised a means of making sure we got our key. We had the last room in the house which was up in the eaves. It was quite little but perfectly functional and... More

Lovely guesthouse, only 5 mins taxi ride from the city centre or half hour walk. Yummy breakfast, large clean room and friendly owners. If you're lucky you can even meet the dog, he's MASSIVE!! I would definitely recommend Smith's Guest House!

Stayed one night, had to drive around a bit before finding a parking spot two roads away. Comfy room with TV, kettle. Landlady offered friendly advice on dinner options around the inn. Good cooked breakfast in the morning

We stayed at the Smith's Guest House for only 2 nights last month, in July 2014. It was such a comfortable and airy room, the wifi worked well in our room, and the breakfast was delicious!! It was in a great location to get on the bus to anywhere in the city, and there was a great convenience store across... More

I stayed for a week in a small single room. It was very small but really nice. Wooden furniture and blue linnen and curtains. Quite clean too. The bathroom for this room is just across the hall, which is not as convenient as having an en-suite, but still ok. (I think all other rooms were en-suite). The bathroom was also... More
