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.

We booked a last minute 3 night stay at the Claymore City to attend Edinburgh's Hogmanay street party. We were told to expect quite a small room, but upon arrival we found our room was more than big enough for the 2 of us. Everything was clean and we were very comfortable. Breakfast was great, we aren't vegetarians but there... More

Cathy is a very nice and warm person I felt like home which is so great when you are travelling around! One day I could not have breakfast because I went to a day tour, Cathy was so nice to... More

The house is on a street full of B&B options and on the bus route. My bedroom was very pretty, with a sink, a shared-bathroom, coffee & tea in room, comfortable bed, and very relaxing vibe. Breakfast was truly the best you can imagine. I am not vegetarian and I would definitely choose her home over any other just to... More
