The Claymore is a perfect, relaxing place to spend time while visiting Edinburgh. Cathy’s delicious breakfasts, which have many tasty vegan options, definitely helped dispel our jet lag. We probably tried all of the vegan options on the menu, from the polenta to the tattie scone to the porridge and the cooked tomatoes and potatoes and the delicious soya yoghurts... More

We loved our stay at Claymore Vegetarain Guest House! It was our favorite of all the places we stayed on our recent 3 week trip. We spent 7 nights there. Cathy was so sweet and accommodating!!! Some mornings we had to leave early to catch a tour and therefore miss breakfast, so she prepared us something to take with us.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Cathy, our host was very welcoming and gave helpful advice about places we were planning to go. Our room was very clean, comfortable and well furnished, with 2 easy chairs and a table as well as plenty of space to store clothes etc. The house has a charming and relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast was excellent... More

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights. The host was lovely and welcoming and the room was clean and comfortable. She was very accommodating to my friend as well who had allergies and made sure she checked everything was okay with the breakfasts and remembered what we liked and didn't like the next morning. She was also always... More

We have just returned home following our 3rd visit to Claymore and we will certainly be visiting again (our daughter is a student in Edinburgh). Cathy is so friendly and welcoming. A variety of teas and coffees are available in the rooms and fresh milk provided.Often rather tempting snacks are placed in the mugs in the bedrooms too! Breakfasts are... More

Can't fault our stay. Rooms & food were excellent. Fantastic friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Close enough to city centre for fringe. Great hosts with good knowledge of Edinburgh. Would recommend to anyone and would definitely stay again next time in Edinburgh. In fact we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

While Cathy, the owner, was attentive and helpful, cannot recommend the B&B. As soon as you enter the place, you are hit by the smell of a smoker. The smell is strong in the entryway and hallway, thought thankfully not in the guest room or breakfast room. The decor of the place looks old and tired. The room was not... More

Just come back from such a lovely stay at Claymore. Our room was great, with a super comfy bed, and Cathy is an excellent host. Such a treat to have lots of vegan options at breakfast. Don't forget to try the tattie scones!

I've spent here 7 nights and everything was great, totally worth it. Cathy runs pretty much everything there and is SUCH a nice woman, plus her breakfasts are the best! If you go there, make sure you try the mushroom omelette. In fact, try anything you want, everything's so tasty. Also, she would help you with anything you may need... More

We stayed here just for one night over a weekend, and would definitely stay again. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. We were offered non-dairy milk on arrival for teas/coffees. Breakfast was delicious, and our host Cathy was very friendly and accommodating.
