We were warmly greeted by the proprietors and taken to our room, which was very clean and comfortable. A friend contacted the owners to arrange a surprise bottle of wine, which was nicely waiting. There were multiple breakfast items which you could request each morning for breakfast, so there should be something everyone could enjoy to begin your day. The... More

If you want great service, a lovely clean room and a relaxing atmosphere then you've found it. I was travelling around for business and so stayed in a few places over the week. I found Clan Walker to be really inviting and have a personality along with a modern feel. The little touches mean so much, even down to pre-ordering... More

A beautiful hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, the room was in very good condition, minus a split tile on the bathroom floor. We had a lovely four poster bed and a beautiful fireplace in the room. Breakfast was ok, a bit disappointed by the very cheap looking and tasting sausages, however, the bacon was good! The fried egg was... More

A very lovely place to stay in the suburbs of Edinburgh. Directly on the bus route into town which is superb. Breakfast was lovely, although please help the waitress to be a little more confident! The food was brilliant. I would definitely recommend this guest house. I understand they were a man down this weekend, but everything seemed to work... More

Along with my wife, arrived here on Saturday 23rd May 2015 at 17.00. On being let in I explained we had a three night booking through LateRooms.com made on 4th May - I had the confirmation document in my hand - but it seemed there had been a breakdown in communication - the owners had apparently cancelled my booking way...

I really enjoyed my three night stay here. The owners very helpful. The room was very comfortable and quiet as the roon was facing a back yard/garden. The bathroom was very modern and extremely clean. I really liked the breakfast too and there were a good range of choice with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. Its very centrally located as... More

Stayed at the clan walker on the 11th of April. The owners were welcoming and attentive making sure we were happy in our room. Would recommend room 2 which has a four poster bed, would definitely stay again.

Perfect location, not far from the centre of town, close to Arthurs Seat. Accommodation was great, very clean and hospitality and service were first rate - would highly recommend to all! The owners were very friendly and could not do enough for us. Allan M

I decided to take my girlfriend on a weekend break to Edinburgh and we choose this place. It is lovely! The rooms are fantastic! Spacious with a comfy four poster bed giving it real charm and everything you could need. Sky TV was included as standard. Parking was not an issue either as we managed to park directly outside.
