First stay at this accommodation, following the closure of a previously used B&B nearby. Complete value for money, friendly owners, very comfortable room and decent ensuite, tasty breakfast. And all at an excellent price, what’s not to like ?

Had a great stay here. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the room was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was nice and quickly served in a nice room. It was only a short walk to the city centre and there were shops and restaurants less than five minutes away. The only slight problem was the car park -... More

Absolutely loved our stay at the valentine guesthouse, lovely owners who went out of their way to help us enjoy our stay. We had a slight issue with our car and they went out of their way to help resolve- above and beyond what was needed :-) Breakfast was tasty and I would seriously recommend to add this on to... More

This guest house is located just 10 minutes away from the Edinburgh castle in a cozy old restored building. Staff is friendly and lovely (we enjoyed a long chat with Rob on our last day of staying), in the morning you will be delighted by a traditional Scottish breakfast freshly prepared, which will give you the energy to climb all...

Very well located, just 10min walk to city centre. Bus just outside the door. Very nice and clean room and bathroom. English Breakfast is cooked and served by a very nice couple . Very quiet at night.

Our room was on the first floor. Large, comfortable and tidy (even if you'll find some dust somewhere). Old furnitures and bed but well-kept, so no noise while you're moving in your bed :). Good sleep. The welcoming is warm, they will show you on the map where they are and the main paths to get the most important attractions... More

We have just returned home after a 3 night stay here for the Fringe festival. The location is perfect and attractions are within walking distance. Rob is lovely, as are all the staff. The hotel decor is homely, but not what we would call contemporary, and the place is very well looked after and clean. We stayed on the third... More

Unfortunately, this was our last stop (July 3) before departing the UK and we would have liked to stayed much longer to fully enjoy the beauty of Scotland. Valentine's is located in a very convenient part of town and walking to major attractions or restaurants is a breeze. Because the building is a 200 year old historic site, certain amenities... More

We stayed at the Valentine City Centre Guest House on 31st July and found it to be very good value. When we arrived we were met in the lobby by the owner, he was very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area, he recommended places to eat and marked everything out on a local map. The room we were in,... More

I'd simply like to say that the description of this Guest House on booking.com was really nothing like reality. Friendly owners, but the state of the buildings and specifically the room I had were completely sub-standard: - Extremely poor quality room which felt somewhat like a bedsit and only cursorily cleaned - Room was an "annex", i.e. a flat over...
