Greeted with a smile. Very friendly hostess. Room wasnt massive but was very clean, cosy and warm. Marvellously comfy bed - so much so we took a note of the maker! Ideally situated for the bus routes and not too far from town that you cant walk - took us 40 minutes from the Royal Mile at a strolling pace.... More

I am late writing this review as my boyfriend and I have been to the Sonas Guesthouse in November but it's time to write something very good for this nice b&b. We have been there for 6 nights and we have been treated very well. Christie is a wonderful person and she gave us advice and suggestion where to go,... More

The staff at Sonas Guesthouse really made our stay excellent! Arriving on Christmas Eve and leaving on Dec 27th, we were expecting a reduced level of care from our host, and were willing to accept such - so it was a real treat to feel totally looked after, and have all our needs met during our stay! Staff could not... More

***Highly recommend*** Wonderful and welcoming service form everyone at Sonas. Lovely choice of breakfast foods in the morning. We stayed for a week around the Hogmanay which made it a great time of year to be in Edinburgh. A lovely walk to the centre of town or a short bus journey (regular service from plenty of buses) to Princes Street/Leith/Royal... More

We booked a room at the Sonas for our stay in Edinburgh during the Fringe festival and couldn't have been more pleased. The price was reasonable and being a short/easy distance away from the madness in the city center was the best move we could have made. It's a nice walk or quick trip on the bus into the center....

Found this B&B on an internet search, location seemed perfect, price perfect for our weekend away. On arrival we were shown straight to our room, room 1. A double room with en suite (shower & bath) with a view of the rear car park, which was a bonus as we could keep an eye on our motorbike. The hotel is... More

We booked this accommodation on the recommendation of a family member. When we booked we were welcomed almost as a member of the family. That attitude was the norm for the next week we were in residence. Parking was a bit of an issue. But did not detract from this experience. The public transport was a short walk away. The... More

Picked this place partly because of all the enthusiastic reviews, but was very disappointed. Cristina, who met us on check in was pleasant and helpful. The location on a bus route to the City centre with frequent buses was good, and the off street parking useful. But, our double room on the first floor was very cramped due to an... More

We liked this guest house. It was very comfortable, wam and very clean. The people running it were friendly and helpful. Our first-floor room had a double and single bed, a desk and a small armchair in it with a huge window and spacious ensuite with bath/shower. Location great - pleasant side street just a few mintues walk from bus-stop.... More
