I LOVE a certain caramel biscuit which is made in Scotland so very excited to see one when we got in the room. Hang on, one! One between two? How is that going to work. And why are we in a twin room (we got married 3 weeks ago!) and definitely didn't ask for a twin. At least I don't... More

We stayed for a week in Ravensdown and were very happy with the accommodation and guest house in general. Rooms were clean and bright with modern decor and coffee making facilities, ensuite bathrooms though a bit small were also very comfortable. Small continental or cooked breakfast every morning (or both). Hosts were also very helpful and suggested places to visit... More

Having stayed in various excellent BnB's on this trip I have to say that I was thoroughly disappointed with this so called 4star accommodation. The house was lovely, location perfect, views across to the city were fab. However, when it comes to the tea and coffee facilities in the room, they hadn't been topped up or checked prior to arrival... More

We really liked the house, quite large and tastefully decorated. We had Room 1 at the front which had comfortable queen size bed and room was large with ensuite. David suggested we go to dinner on the river front at a seafood restaurant. It was excellent and full of locals, we would have missed the waterfront if we had riot... More

Nice room and David was most helpful with his advise and answering our queries. What we will always remember is the dinner he provided us with when I was unwell and did not want to step out. Thank You David.

We stayed five nights and were very happy the whole time. The owner was extremely helpful, with suggestions and information. He arranged for bicycles for us to rent, and called a cab for us when we left. Breakfasts were generous and delicious, with eggs any way we wanted, meats available, multiple breads including gluten-free, fresh fruits. It is in a... More

We stayed two nights at the Ravensdown, on our trip to Edinburgh. Our flight from Toronto landed at 6:30am in the morning, but they helped us out by taking our luggage in, so we could explore the city for the morning, before a very early check-in at 1:00pm. The building is on a busy street, but it was not too... More

There's a lot of accommodation in Edinburgh (outside of festival time that is) and therefore paying £95 per night for a room for two you expect things to be good. There's nothing really wrong with this place it just didn't leave a positive memory. Perhaps watered down tomato and brown sauces at breakfast leave more of an impression than they... More
