Jasmine was lovely and cooks a very good breakfast which sees us through till early evening. the hotel is clean, tidy and quiet. It is in a great location with quite a few attractions well... More

We can't agree with the many of the other reviewers! We had travelled a distance from Cornwall and were greeted by Jasmine who didn't even ask us where we were from or how our journey had been,quite odd for a guest house owner! The interior,despite being a hugely attractive house with terrific Georgian features, is quite tired and shabby and... More

A genuine family run hotel, incredibly friendly. Rooms very clean and breakfast cooked to order! Location is fantastic for the city centre, only a 10 minute stroll to Princes Street. Would definitely stay again.

Great room, the host was very friendly, and the breakfast in the morning was great. The hotel is in a great location, all attractions are within 30 minutes walk, and if the weather is good walking is a great way to see edinburgh. The room was relatively expensive, but i expected that given the fringe and tattoo were on.

This was the second time my wife and I stayed at Hanover House. Jasmin not only has comfortable rooms, she goes out of her way to make her guests feel at home. She accommodated my special needs for breakfast (even serving gluten free toast!) and got us a reservation in Fort William for the next leg of our journey.

I've stayed in this guest house in Edinburg for 4 nights across June/July 2013. Near to the city centre, about only 10 minutes of walk to Princess Street and the Waverley Station. The room very cleaned and silenced. For breakfast you can ask for everything and Jasmine will prepare it!! If I'll come back one day in Edinburg, I'll stay... More

Lovely, spacious room and bathroom, soft linen, comfy beds = good sleep! Jasmin was a really friendly and helpful host, she had no problems with us checking in 2 hours early. Unfortunately we had to leave quite early the following morning and weren't ready to eat a big cooked breakfast, but it looked like Jasmin was cooking it herself and... More

We stayed in Hanover House last September, for four (4) nights. Jasmine was a kind and caring host who 'went the extra mile', was very informative, helpful & prepared a special diet for me. Hanover House was spacious and quiet, yet close-by to all transportation and amenities. Have recommended this B & B to several other travellers. MF, British Columbia,... More

We stayed as a group of ten celebrating a fiftieth birthday and were made incredibly welcome by the host, Jasmine, from the start. She sorted some party trimmings for us as well as sorting out car parking. The building is a lovely Georgian property on a handsome street which is only ten minutes walk from Princes Street. The rooms, bedding... More

We stayed at the Hanover House in late April of 2012. Jasmin was easy to communicate with leading up to our visit and was pleasant and helpful throughout. Hanover House is a family run B&B not far off the Edinburgh city center. At about 1/2 a mile from the train station it's a 10-15 minute walk. If you've more than... More
