Recently stayed at the Valentine Guest house and on arrival was greeted by the owner Rob who went out of his way to make us feel welcome giving us a guide to Edinburgh and tips on how to get around easily. Room was clean and tidy with a comfortable bed, even though a little small. Location was excellent, only a... More

We stayed Three nights here in June 2015. The hotel is not far from the city and has a bus stop for no 10 and 27 just outside, very convenient. Its standard is OK for the price, and the owners are very friendly and serve You well. We definitely recommend it to those who stay in Edinburgh for a few... More

I do not often leave reviews on trip advisor despite travelling frequently, and when I do, it is generally to give recognition for incredible service. Unfortunately this wasn't the case with Valentine. Having stayed in two cheaper guest houses in Edinburgh, one only around the corner, valentine was very disappointing in comparison. Not only was it more expensive, but the... More

Stayed here on business in April. Nobody there to great me, just a key in a box with a note. Found my way to my room. It was well appointed and the bed was comfortable. Had breakfast included. It came quickly and was pretty decent. Hotel is in a good location about 10 minutes walk to the grass market. Loads... More

Booked this little place last minute and the owners were fantastic. They got back to my email in no time and had organized check in. I stayed in the luxury room and it was really well priced and a very cute room with a four poster and all the things you need for a comfortable stay. Breakfast was great (although... More

We stayed here on a Saturday night for our weekend in Edinburgh. The location is very good and was close to everything we might want to visit. On arrival, we were greeted and told where to park, as well as given a map and told where was good to go. The parking wasn't great as it was a short walk... More

We booked this as a last minute get away over the Easter break and were on a tight budget. Good value at £85 for 2 nights (cheap), but you get what you pay for. Room was quite small, no working batteries in the tv remote, a draft through the window so it was quite cold at night, toilet had a... More

Uncomfortable, freezing and too small .. Would love to know where they got the pictures from as our room did not look anything like them. Could have a lye down, a pee and shower all at the same time it was that small. Also the shower was horrible with absolutely no water pressure and heat settings. Staff were non existent... More
