My husband and I spent three nights there and we were very satisfied. Room is very clean and same is bathroom( although the sink is old and a bit block ) but in general worth the money, plus the cooked breakfast is very yummy ! They clean the room everyday so for long stay is very a good choice, and... More

Stayed here 2 nights as part of our commonwealth games trip. We were in room 5 which only has a washbasin in it, so you use a separate bathroom just along the corridor, due to the sloping ceiling it is difficult to shower with the hand held shower attachment, and there was no shower curtain. Not ideal though it is... More

Gorgeous guest house with beautiful original features, clean & cosy. Staff were very friendly & happy to assist whenever we needed them. Great veggie breakfast option too! Location was great - short bus ride so you can escape the city. Leith has some lovely shops & the docks are stunning. Highly recommended!

from the moment I arrived late Friday evening, the house impresses almost as much as the cheerful reception I was greeted with by the owner Gill. I stayed 2 nights in the attic room ,(double bed with ensuite -supplied with coffee and tea facilities and also cookies!) which was perfect for myself. After reading the reviews of the cooked breakfast... More

We have just returned from a weekend at the Bonnington. It was great - the room was reasonably sized with great high ceilings and a view of the bowling green. It was a nice touch to have a decanter in the room - even if sherry is not to our taste. Breakfast was lovely and as well as a full... More

we stayed for a weekend and enjoyed our attic room with small en-suite. Although the Bonnington is not in central Edinburgh, it is very easy to get buses to the centre or even to walk via the pretty Waters of Leith. Proximity to Leith is also a bonus, another walkable distance. Everything you need was provided in the B&B, either... More

We stayed at the Bonnington for 3 nights over the hogmany celebrations. On our arrival Gill asked how we were and showed us up to our room. Our room was bright and airy, it was slightly cold to begin with but the guest house manual advises you how to adjust the the radiators etc. The pillows were a little flat... More

My family of 6 people stayed for 4 nights and it was amazing. The owner is very helpful.She helped us in booking cabs, bus tours, selecting good restaurants etc. I would recommend others to surely consider Bonnington for your stay in Edinburgh since its location is also good. The public transportation is easy available. The rooms are clean and big... More
