Room very clean and comfortable, very good breakfast. Owner very nice and helpful with city direction. Family room on the street. The Localisation of the house is a very good compromise between downtown proximity (easy to reach by bus in few minutes) and tranquility compared to the crowded and noisy city center.

We arrived at the Classic Guest House relatively late at night, but were fortunate that the owners had been willing to work with us on checking in after hours. The room we had was on the top floor, which meant going up a very tight staircase. The room was a bit small, but not tiny. Only issue was the roof... More

We are very grateful! Our stay was wonderful! The guest house is perfect: clean, smelling, absolutely comfortable, with all the facilities close by, easy access to the city center (about 2km, easy to go by foot and in a beautiful neighbour), delicious breakfast. In addition, all received us very well: they are attentive, hospitable and gave us all the attention... More

The staff was warm and helpful. The room was large enough for our family, with separate beds for the children. Breakfast was amazing! We had easy access to the buses, although a 30 minute walk also got us into Old Town quite easily.

Room number 4 to the rear was very small and the en suite was even smaller!! The shower and wash basin were dirty with hairs still in them. Hairs on the floor in front of the shower. You had to sit on the toilet at an angle as the basin was too close! There was no menu on the breakfast... More

At the Classic Guest House we pride ourselves on the quality of our accommodation and in particular the generous and varied breakfasts. We have received numerous positive responses on our rooms and our breakfasts. This particular guest was seeking an upgrade to a deluxe room and futher expected chocolate, champagne and flowers at no extra charge. In a few rooms,... More

Loved this B&B about 30 mins walk from the city centre. The host originally form Tunisia is wonderful and his welcome and hospitality made us feel at home. Our room was small (room 6) but still very comfortable and I would definitely stay again.

This B&B is based in an typical scottish town house and a cozy guesthouse with a personal touch. It takes a relaxed 20 minutes walk to the city center (good to discover the area arround). But there are also several bus lines. Our room was clean and cozy and the small bath was an acrobatic exercise ;) but absolutely alright.... More

I received a very friendly and warm welcome. My room with a view over the well kept garden was comfortable and well equipped. The delicious and very generous breakfast was fantastic and accordingly I skipped lunch. I will return.

Fiona & Emad made us feel very welcome, location is great, just a short bus journey into the centre of Edinburgh. The cooked breakfasts in the morning definitely set you... More
