We were very well received and assisted in our stay in Edinburgh. The owners were extremely attentive and even affectionate with us, offering an experience of welcome and safety. The room we stayed in was very comfortable, clean and well heated. The bathroom was small but it did not bother. The breakfast is basic but it is offered a wonderful... More

We visited Scotland in September, and the Sandilands was the first place we stayed. Our room (No 3) was amazingly comfortable and very nicely decorated, the breakfast was delicious and John offered some really helpful tips and ideas for our trip to the Highlands. Moreover, the location is very convenient, with bus stops right outside the B&B. You can even... More

Sandilands Guest House was my first B&B experience and I was not disappointed! John and Maureen were very welcoming, friendly and wonderful hosts. My room was not only comfortable but, charming as well, and had a view of their beautiful garden. The breakfast buffet had a wide variety and the full Scottish breakfast was delicious (also a first for me)!... More

I am a repeat Sandilands Guest House guest and I have come away from John and Maureen's hospitality well taken care of in all manner both times, they completely accommodated my reservations when I needed to make changes. My room was perfect for my needs and I didn't mind that the en suite was on the small side, I was... More

Our SECOND visit to magnificent Edinburgh and to Sandilands A warm welcome (as usual) clean and comfortable room and delicious breakfast. Perfect! What better location during the busy Fringe and Tattoo week, just a short bus hop into town and plenty of night buses for that late return. Now that we have found it we would not stay anywhere else... More

Rude, disorganised owners made this stay unpleasant. Firstly no record of booking, however we could produce email confirmation from them. They found it! Not happy that we had a van and continually asked us to move it. The shower and bathroom were ridiculously small, no even enough room to shampoo your hair. Seemed like the owners had a truly Scottish... More

If you look for a cosy place with lovely hosts and convienent to the city centre of Edinburgh, Sandilands is a perfect choice. Rooms are small but cosy, John and Maureen are friendly and caring hosts and serve a good Scottish breakfast. A bus runs directly opposite the house into town and back (1.50 GBP One way). Free parking is... More

This was the first B&B that we stayed at in Britain and it set the standard for the others. The rooms were clean, warm and generous in size. The welcome was warm and friendly. Sandilands is located a nice walking distance to town. We would happily stay there again.

I already know where I am staying my next time in Edinburgh. Sandilands Guest House is located in a nice and quiet neighborhood, 15 minutes walk from the city centre. It is also very clean, good size rooms and a lovely place to have a delicious scottish breakfast as well as continental options. The very best thing was Maureen and... More

We had a very nice stay at the Sandilands Guest House. Unfortunately, my daughter arrived ill from eating bad airport food but we were well cared for! John and Maureen took good care of us and were sweetly concerned about her welfare. The location was good, too-close enough to walk or easily take a bus. We found a grocery store... More
