The guest house is in a central location in Edinburgh and close to public transport. Room was really well presented and amenities also very good. If bringing own car take care as parking is limited to street parking only.

Travelling on business, all I need is somewhere comfortable, clean, quiet and friendly. St Valery meets those conditions. The reason for the 4 stars is that the wifi in the cellar room I was in was not strong enough to get a good connection. Location is great for access to the city centre.

We had a very nice stay here. Wonderful breakfast and nice room. The stay was absolutely perfect until we do the check out. We were very sure we had made the payment before we arrive. Upon check out, they insisted that we didn't pay yet and they will never receive payment in advance. They will only make the guarantee on... More

My partner and I went to Edinburgh for my birthday earlier this year. Upon arrival, the gentleman at the reception desk was so nice! He gave us 3 different maps, advised us on the best way to get around the city and the must see places; The room was lovely and very quiet; and the house, I believe a Victorian... More

The room was much larger than I expected for the money. The bathroom was small, but had hot water and was well kept. The staff was so helpful, we were able to check in much earlier than everywhere else we stayed, and we were immediately given some great suggestions about what to do for the day. It is also very...

Welcome good and informative, bed linen needed to be update as old and worn, bathroom was small, shower had mould and needs updating. The breakfast was ok, but when asked for pot of coffee which was on the breakfast menu, we were told to use the machine, which we found coffee undrinkable. Good location for Haymarket station and trams, 20min... More

The service is wonderful, people are very nice. The room is big and comfortable. The street is quiet. Very close to tram and buses. Cheap food stores and cafes in the neighborhood. Wi-fi is good. Tea and coffee are available through the day. You may leave your suitcases and go for a long walk the last day of your stay.

We stayed in a very big triple room. The facilities of the room were excellent, the B&B was clean and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was good but the quality could be improved. Excellent overall, though!

I usually try and book accommodations that have easy access to my mode of transport, i.e. airport or train station. The St Valery fit the bill perfectly. I took the tram from EDI airport to the Haymarket stop which was a short block-and-a-half away. City center was walking distance and I tend to walk quite a bit. Had no problem... More

The St. Valery Guest House was beyond our expectations! Large room with beautiful large windows, superb customer service & a wonderful free breakfast! Would recommend this guest house to anyone! Only a 5 minute walk to Haymarket station!

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
