The host was very friendly and accomodating and provided lots of useful sight-seeing tips. The guest house was very clean and seemed to have been recently re-furbished. The breakfast room was very nice and clean... More

Conveniently situated near bus route into Town and near a main road with restaurants. Could walk to Princes Street at a stretch. Large, comfortable room and bathroom which was warm. Free Wi Fi link, nice breakfast. Parking was on street, free evenings and week ends but £1 an hour otherwise.

We have now stayed here several times over the last seven years. The location for exploring the city is perfect. We are always been given a very warm welcome by the owner Stephen who is always helpful and cheerful. There are plenty of great places to drink and eat close by and I would recommend this guest house for singles/couples... More

The room was extremely clean and comfortable and each night sleep was quiet and peaceful. The breakfasts... More

I found The Robertson's location absolutely perfect and the Bruntsfield area of Edinburgh is ideal for the Meadows and getting around the city centre, very friendly staff always helps!
