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.

This was my second visit to the Sandilands Guest House and it delivered once again. The location of the Guest House is great as it's only a 5 minute bus to town or 15 minute walk if you walk instead. The Guest House offers free parking which is an added bonus. The room I stayed in was on the ground... More

Sandilands was not the closest B&B to downtown, but for the price in Edinburgh, it was very nice. The room was spacious and clean. The hosts were very informative and friendly. The internet was fast and the breakfast was good. There is great parking right in front off the street. We would stay there again.

We were disappointed with our stay, the room was a decent size but didn't seem very fresh. The ensuite was very small with a tiny shower and only 2 small sachets of shower gel supplied. After 2 days we asked for our towels to be changed as they were not drying (it stated in the room information that towels were... More

Enjoyed a long weekend break at this lovely guest house. John and Maureen were very helpful and attentive hosts. Sandilands is well situated for a short walk into the city, for those who don't want to walk there is a bus stop just outside the property. The twin room I shared with my cousin was comfortable, well appointed and spotless,... More

I've just got back from a lovely, long weekend in Edinburgh with my cousin. John and Maureen couldn't have been more friendly and attentive. We were in room 1 a small, spotlessly clean twin. The shower room is a bit small but perfectly adequate with plenty of hot water. The room is at the front of the house and although... More

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.
