I have stayed for 3 nights in a double bed room together with my girlfriend. In our room we had a shower and a wash basin. The toilett was outside of the room on the same floor next door. I did not really get if it was only for us, because this B&B seems to have also rooms with the... More

Myself and my father came and stayed the weekend of the Wales v Scotland rugby. We chose this guest house because of the location. The rooms, breakfast and location was perfect. What made our trip even better was the overwhelming friendly service from Jimmy and Caroline. They really couldn't do enough for us and we're very knowledgeable about the area.... More

We stayed here for 5 days. We toured a lot & as such were out more than in. The room (#1) on the first floor was ideal! Plenty of room for us & our stuff. The dining room is adjacent, so a little noise from that early AM, but other-wise, we were up & heading to bkfst then out too,... More

Great Hotel at quiet part of the town. 10 minute walk from Castle Hill, Princes street, Auld Reekie. The staff of the hotel was very nice and surprised us with chocolate and champagne on December 31st.

We had a lovely stay at the St Valery just before Christmas 2014. The en suite room was clean and comfortable, the staff were very cheerful and helpful and it was ideally situated for walking into the centre of Edinburgh, or indeed by the tram or bus. We were expecting more of a Scottish breakfast but what we had was... More

We stayed here at the end of November and couldn't of had a better experience with the B&B. The room was exactly as it was described, was clean and tidy and the bathroom outside wasn't an issue at all as it was just ours. The B&B was perfectly situated just outside the main areas, was either a 15 minute walk... More

I stayed at the St Valery with a friend on our first time to Edinburgh. The building was a beautiful Victorian style house not far from Haymarket station. The second we got there we were greeted by friendly staff behind the counter and helped to our room. We were on the top floor and as we were staying with them... More

We chose this guest house on Expedia because of its good reviews, but were very disappointed by it in many aspects. I do not know how it has achieved reviews saying "excellent". The situation is very convenient, bus and tram stop nearby, the street is nice, and so would the house be, if it was kept in a different way... More

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.
