This is such a delightful place to stay. The house is comfortable and clean, the decor restful but interesting, the food is fabulous (including for vegans) and the welcome is warm. We have stayed there two years running for August festival trips and hope to return.

I just returned from three nights at Claymore with my husband and mother as part of an eight day trip to Scotland. We arrived at around 11am, jet-lagged but not expecting to get into our room until later that day. However, Cathy welcomed us in and informed us that the room was ready. We had booked the family room that... More

This is a very charming guesthouse with spacious and well-decorated rooms -- in my opinion, larger and prettier than those of much more expensive classic hotel that a friend of mine chose to stay in. It's about a 20 minute brisk walk to the city centre, or just a few minutes on the bus which stops opposite the front door.... More

We have a vegan in the family, which can make travel a bit tricky, and gigantic egg-butter-bacon breakfast menus sometimes leave nothing but juice and dry toast as an options. We chose this hotel because of the vegetarian/vegan friendly aspect, but we liked it for more than that. Our rooms were really nice--airy, light, colourful and comfortable. The owner/hostess is...

Just back from this quirky B+B after a 2 night stay. Very quirky with mismatched crockery etc. The fact that its was a meat free house had no bearing on my stay there. Cathy was great and very helpful. About 15-20 minute walk to the main attractions. Loved it - will be back

Our first time staying here and couldn't fault it. A very comfortable room which was at the back of the house so no noise from the road. The owner, Cathy, was very pleasant and welcoming, and the breakfast was delicious. Fried halloumi and tattie scones, mmm. The location is very convenient for the city centre - just a short bus...

Claymore is a very cute guest house, with comfortable rooms and an incredibly accommodating, cheerful host. The breakfast was wonderful, and the location is within a short bus ride from the city center. I highly recommend staying here!

We stayed here for the first time, this weekend and received a very warm welcome from Cathy. Our room (No. 6) was at the top of the house, and at the back, so nice and quiet. Decor is quirky and beautiful; the room had a nice shower and comfy bed. As vegetarians, we are used to nimimal veggie breakfasts in... More

Another return visit to one of my favourite places to stay in Edinburgh. Warm welcome as ever and very good vegan breakfast. Location is close to work and the city centre, so ideal on all respects for work and evening in town. Looking forward to my next visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a 10-15 minute walk to Princes Street. We offer three things to our guests - enjoyable accommodation, warm and friendly atmosphere and good food and we do it with pleasure. Although our food is vegetarian and vegan, we have had many meat eating guests over the years and most of them have gone home happy! We welcome every kind of people and look forward to welcoming you. ... more   less
