We booked a 3 night stay for New Years at Sandilands through Hotels.com (an Expedia company). We received 2 confirmation emails from Hotels.com, but when we arrived Sandilands had no record of our booking and no room reserved for us. We are not sure if this was the fault of Hotels.com or Sandilands. Luckily, there were multiple vacant rooms and... More

After checking the T.A. reviews our expectations were higher than the actual experience. Pros: Bus stops very close to get you in and out of central Edinburgh. Walk into town of about half an hour. The actual bedroom was well-equipped. Cons: The interior needs modernizing and decluttering. The dining room is not big enough to allow guests to move around... More

We lucked out finding this B & B. We were trying to find a place to stay and there was so much traffic that we couldn't get to a couple places that we saw had openings. John fit us in as they were slowing down with their business after a busy tourist season. We had a nice room and John... More

stayed here 2 nights as we had booked for the Tattoo. Made to feel very welcome. John was very helpful regards buses. There was a stop over the road and it only took about 10 mins to get to the centre so our car never moved all weekend. There was a good selection for breakfast and tea and coffee in... More

John is the perfect host and his breakfasts are wonderful. He can help direct you to anyplace in the city. The rooms are clean spacious and quiet. He has umbrellas next to the front door which is so important in Edinburgh. We enjoyed talking with him during breakfast. If you're visiting Edinburgh it's a great place to stay!

Sandilands Guest House is really nice, and ideally located for visiting the sights of Edinburgh. Although it within walking distance of the city centre it is quiet and conducive to a good night's rest. During our visit it was great to park our car at the house, and to either walk or take a bus to see the major attractions.... More

My wife and I were through for the weekend and were so glad to have stayed at the Sandilands. We were delighted to have received such a friendly warm welcome by both John and Maureen and was very grateful for their kindness in making sure that I received a lovely cooked breakfast on a morning that I had to leave...

Schoon, goed geregeld, lekker ontbijt en een goede locatie! John, onze gastheer heette ons welkom bij binnenkomst en nam hier ruim de tijd voor. Ook gaf hij ons een stadskaart van Edinburgh en de nodige adviezen van bezienswaardigheden en vervoersmogelijkheden het centrum in. (Lopend kleine 20 min of de bus die voor de deur stopt). De gehele dag de mogelijkheid... More

Very welcoming, friendly and catered for our needs superbly. We had some inconvenient timings of events during our stay but this was not a problem for John and Maureen. Our room was spacious and clean with tv and en suite. Thank you and will look you up when we revisit Edinburgh.
