Situated at the Leith end of Ferry Road, the Guest House offers good budget accomodation with ensuite shower and toilet. The owners are helpful and very friendly offering lots of useful information for the tourist. Parking is very limited and involves swapping cars around to let other guests out but ee found street parking close by. Access to the city... More

Stayed here a couple nights on our honeymoon and it was a very pleasant stay. We were greeted by the hosts who provided all sorts of maps and information regarding the city. The location is right on three bus lines that go to City Centre every 10 minutes or so. The Britannia is only a 10-15 minute walk and there... More

The B&B is a little out of City Centre, in Leith but only 15 mins on a frequent bus route so good access. The Owners were incredibly welcoming, friendly, helpful and sweet. English is their 2nd language but they are happy to chat away and offer advice from public transport to local restaurants. The accommodation is basic but good value... More

Fantastic hosts. Breakfast was great. I arrived very late - just after midnight. The hostess kindly stayed up to greet me. Allowed me to eat takeaway dinners in the dining room. I was there for 2 nights and will definitely stay there again if I am in that part of Edinburgh.

a very happy experience, happy and friendly hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble, even the offer of a picnic take-away for our onward journey. The purpose of our visit was the tattoo and the guest house was on a frequent bus service route. Also a pleasant summer walk to the city and to Leith docks, the home of... More

Good welcome and advises, they offered Bus & town maps at arrival. We had the family room for 4 people and it was comfortable, but this room is on the Ferry road side, so a little bit noisy in the early morning, but almost quiet during the night. Very good breakfast.

We just stayed for 8 nights at this wonderful guest house! The host are really great and professional people with much knowledge about Edinburgh. They met us at the door and welcomed us into their home. The room was fine and the shower was great also. They both made sure we had a very delicious breakfast each and every day.... More

We booked our stay at the Swan Lake Guest House at short notice. On our arrival the welcome from our hostess was very warm and friendly. We were given information about buses to the city centre, provided with maps and given ideas on what to do during our stay. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. The en suite facilities were... More

Seemingly unassuming on the outside, the immaculate furnishings inside this guest house are splendid and homely. The ensuite facilities in our room would give some top-end hotels a run for their money. Brian and Sue, the owners, are extremely welcoming. Should you so require it, they are also very helpful with information about attractions, amenities, and direct pickup tours to... More
