Good location, close to public buses, tram and airlink to the airport at Haymarket station with also several great pubs in the neighbourhood. Great hospitality from the owners of st Valery, and the decor is charmingly old-fashioned. They serve scottish breakfast.

We are in five and we fit but room was big enough for all. English Breakfast very good but you can find also some international breakfast staffs. Only bathroom was quite small. Personnel always available.

The staff could not have been more helpful, very friendly and attentive. Was an extra nice surprise receiving a bottle of prosecco each, and chocolates with a card on New Year's Eve! Would definitely recommend and would... More

There was no Internet in the guest houese. If they noticed me before, I wouldn't go there. The rooms were cold. Breakfast is available up to 9 pm. Thus, you need to wake up early even if you are in a holiday. Staff was not so friendly.

We returned for another pre Christmas visit in 2015 and we were delighted to be back. The staff were as helpful and attentive as last year and the room was clean, tidy and perfect or our stay. The local knowledge from the staff was really helpful and we managed to explore new areas of Edinburgh as a result. The couple... More

A very well run comfortable guest house . Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and it was excellent value . Yes people have mentioned that the decor is a bit old fashioned but I didn't mind at all . It was charming . And maybe the bedding is well used - but it was clean . Rooms were... 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.
