'We had such a nice experience at Clan Walker. The place was charming, and our room was clean and comfortable with high ceilings and a view of an apple tree loaded with apples. Lorna made us very welcome and was most helpful to us when our luggage did not arrive. Breakfast was made to order and lovely. The Salisbury Arms... More

Another holiday in Scotland has come to an end and for the third time in as many years, Clan Walker Guesthouse served as the perfect temporary headquarters for us in Edinburgh. The short distance to several bus stops and the short ride into the city make CWG an excellent location while at the same time avoiding the hefty prices usually... More

Charming place and very clean. Hosts were most helpful. They were able to get me in my room early from arrival from an early flight, made cab calls and help me find a local place for Scottish entertainment. The rooms have clan names, so a nice Scottish flare!

Lovely, spacious bedroom and bathroom. Tastefully colourful bedding, not the usual boring white! Really big flat screen TV, very clean, very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast very generous and tasty, just what you need to get you ready for your day ahead. Will definitely stay again!

We stayed here in the triple room in August. good location close to Holyrood park , good breakfast and comfortable clean accommodation. I stayed here during the fringe and it was expensive so I cannot comment on price and perhaps expected more for what I paid. the room was cold in summer which is strange but didn't really bother me...

Thank you for a great couple of nights.The room was spotlessly clean and breakfast hit the spot. The hotel is by a bus route that will take you around the city (£3.50 for a day ticket) so park the car and let the bus take the strain.I would recommend this if your looking for a great b and b near...

Don't get me wrong, this place is comfy, the breakfast is good and the rooms are spacious enough. But take a tip from me, make sure they turn the heating on at night - even in the summer! It's not Clan Walker's fault, it's just that Edinburgh can be a good 5 or 6deg cooler than, say, the south of... More

We loved staying at Clan Walker. While our room was advertised as "small" there was a lot of storage space (closets and drawers) and we were able to unpack and enjoyed looking out our bay window (with window seat) at Arthur's Seat every day. Nice for 2 people. Many options for breakfast including a full Scottish Breakfast are offered daily... More

We stayed for 3 nights so we could attend the Military Tatoo and so that I could do some family history research. 96 Dalkeith Road is very convenient to the City. Buses run very regularly. There is a bus stop/shelter with digital arrival board just outside the front door. Daily bus passes are good value. We had arrived by train... More
