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.

I travelled to Edinburgh with my sister to visit family. Minto House was round the corner from the nursing home where an elderly aunt now lives. As we are both in our 60s we opted for proximity and the photographs on Minto House website looked perfectly fine so we booked for six nights. Oh, how disappointed we were. Our ground... More

Stayed one night and it cost us £45 for a small double room with a bathroom on a separate floor. It was about a 25 - 30 minute walk out from Edinburgh centre. The owner was a bit strange...she sat around a lot and wanted to complain to us about her family when we simply wanted to have breakfast! Quite... More

Nadia is a great host, she was lovely and told us how to use the public transportation. The house is really pretty outside, but we only had breakfast there, because she took us to the new aisle of the house. The rooms were new, extremely clean, the shower is spotless. Only thing missing, there was no hair dryer. Everything beside... More

In hotell-expensive Edinburgh this is what you need for a good bed in the beutiful Town. Good beds, quiet and on a nice street. Its walkable to the city or choose one of many buses. Buy a day card for the bus and you can go many times a day. Breakfast is OK. Standard Continental with a small buffé -... More

My husband and I decided to stay there after being recommended to do so. The experience was just as had been described. The guest house is about 15 minutes leisurely walk away from the main attractions of the city centre. The iconic arthur seat view from our rooms window was a delightful surprise. The lady who owned the house was... More

As this was hotel was the only one we found with vacancies we were a little anxious. Our fears were unfounded and we would definitely return. I don't know what the main hotel is like as we were in the newly built annex at the back. The en-suite room was plenty big enough, warm and comfortable. They don't do cooked... More
