Thanks to late-rooms, I found this charming little guesthouse. I was made to feel very welcome and the single room is perfect for a solo traveller. The decor is nice and clean, blue with original wood was a great contrast, and breakfast was perfect, it filled me ready for a day in the city.

My husband and I spent a week at Smiths Guest House in July 2013 and would definitely stay there again. It provides very clean and comfortable accommodation, and an excellent breakfast. Service is prompt and friendly, and you're allowed to meet and greet Neil and Moyra's Newfoundlander (gentle, quiet, so big), if you like. Buses are within a short walk,... More

Stayed at Smiths Guest House for one night on 13 December. Really enjoyed my stay though it was only for a brief moment. Niel, the owner, is super friendly and doesn't trouble you with any formal documentation and what not. Payed 30 pounds for a night. Pros: - Good and comfortable room with a TV and private toilet - Great... More

My husband and I stayed at Smiths Guest House for two nights and we thoroughly recommend it (=would stay again when we return!). First off, if you're a dog lover, you HAVE to meet Torin the Newfoundland. He's a lovable big bear! Secondly, the breakfasts were sumptuous and tasty. Third, thick Egyptian cotton towels in the bathroom. Sure, the bathroom... More

This was an amazing find! Although a little way from the centre of Edinburgh, it's only a short walk from bus routes with a very frequent service and there are plenty of good eateries close by. Our room was equipped with all the facilities you'd expect in a 3-star hotel, but at a fraction of the price. The warmth of... More

We found this B&B on a web site and decided to phone and confirm over the phone. The owner was very friendly and polite. Good choice I thought to myself. The location was very good, very near bus stop, which is about every 20 minutes or so, but a 5 minute walk to a main road, where they are every... More

Whole place is clean, bright and well maintained. Owners are friendly and helpful. Bus stop is a few yards away. I normally stay in business... More

Having decided to go through to the Fringe at the very last minute, I booked mine and my partner's room at Smiths' Guest House the day before we were due to arrive. Booking through Late Rooms I settled on Smiths' because of their very competitive prices, and although £85/night was a bit more than I had hoped to spend on... More

My family and I stayed in Smith's guest house for three nights, over the festival. We found the place very clean and comfortable with friendly service from Neil and his wife, nothing was too much trouble and they even remembered details about our breakfast. Close to town and with lots of information on local events. Would definitely recommend and stay... More
