When we booked we received an email that the price would be doubled because of the 6 nations rugby game Scotland-Ireland. On arrival they didn't even know there was a game on and many rooms were empty. The, more expensive, extension at the back is newly built. You can hear every movement of the neighbours; you might even hear them... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Minto Guest House in the large family room, which easily accommodated all five of us (kids aged 5-13). The room was adequately furnished with 3 single beds, 1 double, 1 wardrobe, 3 small nightstand/chest of drawers and ensuite bathroom with newish shower, toilet and sink with a large mirror. There was a also a... More

We stayed for one night and felt the room was good value for money in a nice old house. The location is decent, about a 15 minute walk to the royal mile. The room was spacious and pleasantly furnished. The biggest annoyance was the bathroom being situated down the hall, although it was private. The owner was helpful if chatty.... More

This guest house is basic, no internet, but clean and warm. I didn't have the breakfast, I seldom eat anything early in the morning so I can't comment on that. There are two parking spaces at the rear if you arrive first, otherwise there is free on street parking nearby. It is very quiet and comfortable. My room was en... More

The hotel was in a perfect location, room basic but adequate for the price. Nadia very friendly. Room lovely and warm, I didn't eat the continental breakfast, I would rather pay a bit extra for a cooked breakfast, I would stay there again.

Given large room with double bed and two singles but as only me, probably a bit excessive! Relatively cheap but the room was pretty dirty, fluff balls lying around the floor. Pretty basic, not very welcoming room but close to city centre. Bed linen was OK though. Didn't make it to breakfast as a little too early and was given... More

I've stays at Minto house for some three months. The housekeeper Nadia is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are spacious and clean and I couldn't recommend them anymore for regular business use. It's easy to get into Edinburgh and simple to access from the Western Ring Road. There is secure parking to the rear of the property for a... More

Family room for 4 girls, spacious but only one mirror! Great location, value for money, second time staying here and will definitely stay again. Only gripe is the doorknob on the bathroom door hasn't been fixed since last year.
