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

Stayed here will doing the half marathon. A lovely stay. Great room. Tasty breakfast. Perfect for touring the city. Short pleasant walk to town. About 25 mins walk. Bus stop close by if needed. Very safe area and everybody very pleasant.

From the moment we booked by email we loved this place... From the 'secret hiding place' for the key, climbing the staircase, to the country style breakfast room and the loveable 'Toran' it was all we needed at a wonderful price. Our room was small yes, but comfy, clean and with a lovely view of the garden. And far superior... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Smith's Guest House & would definitely go back. It's close to the centre and easy to use public transport, Neil is fantastic and helped us out with directions & advice on things to. Breakfast was delicious, the room was very clean and had an ensuite. Toran (the Smiths' dog) was also a hit with... More

One night stay. Great place located not far south of city centre. Very informal, great value at £30 for an ensuite room (I actually booked the small single room with separate bathroom but was given the slightly bigger room which was nice). TV and wifi in room as well as tea / coffee making facilities. As I was leaving very... More

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
