This is a quaint place on a quiet road. Around 45 minutes' brisk walk to High Street. An easy 10 minutes' walk takes you to a parallel road where any of the frequent busses take you into city centre in 5 minutes. By taxi, around 30 minutes from Edinburgh Airport, cost me just under 25 pounds. I had a large... More

Classic Guest House is a very clean and comfortable B&B with genuine, friendly owners. The double room was very comfortable and I was delighted to see lovely soft cotton bed linen - a classy touch. The guest house is located within a fairly quiet, residential area which is only a short distance from the city centre - we actually walked... More

We enjoyed 6 nights over new year and were impressed with the owners and overall cleanliness. The only problem was the size of the en suite shower and toilet which was very small, and the wardrobe space was limited. The bed was fine though and it was very peaceful. Breakfast was good and the owners were very attentive. I recommend... More

We spent two nights in this cozy B & B. Fiona made us feel right at home and was kind enough to pack us a cold breakfast on our first day, as we had to catch the Scotline tour to Loch Ness early in the morning, before breakfast hours. The second day's Scottish breakfast was nothing short of amazing. Certainly,... More

We stayed two nights in the deluxe room which was one of the biggest rooms we have stayed in for a long time. It was converted from a large living room so had plenty of room for two arm chairs and a table. Lovely bathroom. The breakfast was freshly made in a nice annexe looking over a small garden. The...

We enjoyed three nights at the Classic Guest House. We were delayed in getting to Edinburgh due to the trains being halted due to the stormy weather in the South. The owners were very understanding and we were able to extend our stay by a further night. Breakfast was good and plenty to eat. Rooms were very clean, so clean... More
