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

The guest house is beautiful. We had a spacious room with a large bathroom. The beds were very comfortable. Sue gives you a choice for breakfast as well as fresh fruit and cereals. There are a couple of takeouts restaurants close by as well as laundry facilities, store and bank machine. The bus stops are within a five minute walk.... More

When we made our reservations, we were just searching the web. When we arrived, we were a little surprised to find Chinese hosts; however Su and Bryan were super helpful and kind and friendly. Lovely triple en suite room - room was clean and large with TV and tea/coffee in room. A great overstuffed chair in the room. Breakfast good... More
